Second Chances

As many of you know I recently attended an awesome art retreat called Silver Bella. One of the highlights of this event is shopping at Second Chance. It is an antique shop packed to the brim with all the vintage flair that any creative person would go nuts for. It is departmentalized into vintage clothing, vintage sewing notions (my favorite area), vintage jewelry, ephemera & household items. Aside from the shopping, which is out of this world, this is the place to see all your Bella Sisters. We hadn't been in the shop for more than 5 minutes when squeals of joy could be heard all through the streets of the Old Market area of Omaha. Through the door came Lonnie Jenck, Stacy McGinnis, & Natalie Hansen. While shopping in the basement who did I bump into but Jodie Lejeune. More squeals of joy!!! This is the kind of shopping experience you have when you shop at Second Chances. It was purely delightful. Although I only shopped there once on this trip you can bet that I found the most awesome treasures. This is shopping that you don't want to miss if you are in Omaha Nebraska. So wonderful, we called from 2 hours out to make sure that they were still open, and the funniest thing, they knew that we were Bella's and said they would keep the store open longer for us. We put the pedal to the medal and high tailed it to Second Chance. If you are ever in Omaha Nebraska....you won't want to miss either!!

Hi Hope!
I'm so happy to hear that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (with your 22 pound turkey...geez!) haha
As I read this post, it makes me even more lonesome than I was flying home from Omaha. I knew this would happen! I wish we could have spent more time visiting, it feels like I didn't even get to see you much. However, I am soooo thankful for my hug from you!!!
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season Hope~
I know you will because you will certainly be celebrating the REAL reason of Christmas...no doubt about it! :)
Love ya~
everything vintage
