With Lavender and Lace

During our visit to Virginia to see family, there was one day that I was able to snag for doing things I wanted to do. I waited a whole week for that point, doing what families wanted, but then that Friday came and it was glorious. I grabbed the kiddos and my hubby and went around town. One of my favorite stops that day was at this new vintage shop that has opened in the Ghent area of Norfolk, VA, With Lavender and Lace.

I actually found out about this place from facebook. Most of my “friends” are from the Hampton Roads area and an old high school friend had liked the With Lavender and Lace facebook page. I went to check it out and was glad I did! I knew that the next chance I got I would stop by. 
It’s located right off of 21st street, behind the Taphouse. It is owned by Kelsie McNair. When I visited, she was out of town, but we got to meet her lovely mom! It was fun. The baby even felt comfortable to make an explosion in her diaper while we were shopping. So, maybe that’s a first for your shop Kelsie? ;)

It was fun to look through all of her fun finds and the handmade items there as well.

I loved the dressing room! It was super cute.

See that hat with the white bow? I sooo almost bought that.

She has a couch which was perfect for my hubs and baby to chill on while waiting on me.

We walked away with a few things….

First, this cute little bow made from vintage velvet ribbon. I bought it for my girls, but you know I’m going to share it with them!

Will picked out this tie and already has an outfit picked out to wear with it.

And I walked out with this beautiful vintage slip. It’s a navy blue and covered in lace. I plan on using it for a dress/skirt extender when I need an outfit to be a little longer. If you want to stop by yourself, you can find the shop address here as well as find out more about Kelsie. She is one talented lady! Maybe next time I visit I’ll get to meet her :)
