Bella Rustica 2013 or Bust

Bella Rustica’s third annual Vintage Marketplace is this weekend, and I can’t wait!

It really is a great way to spend a day with girlfriends and do a little treasure hunting.  Win-win, if you ask me. It snuck up on me this year – I’m pretty sure it was further into fall last year.

Bella Rustica, August 23-24, 10am -6pm



Bella Rustica is taking place about 30 minutes east of downtown Nashville.  The site will be on Legacy Farms, an historic event venue in Lebanon.  This is a shot of my friends and I last year with just a few of the treasures we found at Bella Rustica Vintage Marketplace.

This year, I’ll be hanging out with my gal pal, Melanie.  There will be great food, live music, and (of course) treasures of all kinds.

So, who else is going?  Make sure you keep an eye out for me on Friday – come over and say “hey!”

    My friend and I are coming from Owensboro KY to this event! We are so excited…and I love your blog! I may just see you there. Another group of ladies and I will also be attending the Pop up Barn Show at City Farmhouse in October. I saw it on your blog and let the girls know. Thanks Kristie for all your design guidance and I look forward to seeing you-if not at Bella Rustica then at the City Farmhouse show!
