“I’m in love with chalk paint. I didn’t think there was any hope for the old dresser, but now I love it!” Marilyn Gould, Tatamagouche, NS

Every year in Parrsboro we are treated to a fantastic tradition, Old Fashion Saturday night! Usually it is planned for July, this year it was postponed because of a hurricane but it was worth the wait! The sounds of music, laughter and the rumble of antique cars as they parked filled Main Street as the night began! It was so exciting and encouraging to see so many people out on the street, out with their family and friends, to just enjoy this annual event. Many people who came into the shop reminded us that this was how every Saturday used to be, that there should be a circle wore into the sidewalks where people would walk laps to see friends and to just enjoy another exciting Saturday night. Seeing them light up as they would tell us this, was a high point in the evening. If you have never visited Parrsboro, you know what I am going to say.. you need to! If you have never enjoyed Old Fashion Saturday night, you need to! Mark your calendars and come to Parrsboro!
A couple shots from Saturday night! We changed up our store windows to reflect a vintage theme for the occasion!
We love hearing the stories behind all your finds as much as we love seeing how you transform them! Caitlin combined Old White and Duck Egg to create a soft, dreamy look! She was thrilled to be able to give this well-travelled trunk a new look!
Here is what she had to say about the story behind her world traveling treasure!“Not a super fun story, but it was a man in Truro’s that took it around the world with him. It’s giant! It was hidden in a basement, and now it’s the main piece in my front room!”
Looks beautiful, Caitlin!
