This past Saturday, my sister Courtney and I traveled to Batesville, Arkansas for a day of perusing local flea markets, tasting delicious dishes, and scoping out the best photo ops. Here's what we saw!
First up, was Hidden Treasures Upscale Resale Shop, an awesome shop with great vintage finds where all the proceeds go to benefit the local pregnancy resource center, Alpha Center. And since it's for charity, all purchases are tax free. We had to check it out! Just see what I found!
I saw it, and I immediately thought of a dress my Barbie wore back in the "Dynasty" TV show era. It's a NUIT brand, made in the USA, pleated '80s cocktail dress with fully sequined belt. And it was only $20! Of course, I bought it!
My sister found an equally amazing and sparkly treasure. This two-piece sequin and silk set is sooooo heavy and is hand beaded. Wow! They just don't make clothes like this anymore!
When you see a mural, you gotta take an outfit photo. My Top, Earrings, Sunglasses and Shoes from Modcloth. Jeans from Express.
Work it, Courtney! Courtney's Top, Earrings, and Necklace from Modcloth. Jeans from Express. Sunglasses from Target. Sparkle Toms from Style Encore Jonesboro.
After all that shopping and photo posing, we were ready for lunch! Being the Southern ladies we are, Courtney and I stopped in at our favorite spot on Main Street to grab a bite after thrifting...Elizabeth's!
After we filled up on rolls and sweet tea, I ordered a turkey wrap and potato salad. It wasn't all that photogenic, so let's just look at these photos of my sister's fruit plate and shrimp scampi.
After lunch we went exploring a bit more, and walked around a courtyard filled with beautiful sun and moon themed mosaics. I really liked this one!
All in all, Courtney and I had a simply splendid day...even if I didn't find the vintage aluminum drinkware set I was hunting for! I love having my sister as my best friend!
