It is with much excitement and sadness that I announce the future path for Lafayette Antiques & Home Décor.

A lot of you know that we live on 40 acres east of Lafayette. About 3 years ago we built a pole barn with the intent of doing barn sales at some point in my future.

In those 3 years since the barn was built, I have been filling it full of treasures, and enjoying the peacefulness of country living (on my weekends). hahaha

With the shutdown of our economy, and the store being closed for 2 months gave me some time to reflect. I also realized that I was getting burned out working 6 days a week with 2-hour drive daily.

So, after much thought and anguish – I have decided that it is time to move the store. Lafayette Antiques last day in Lafayette will be 1/31/21.

Between now and then we will be having sales to move items that do not fit our barn sales theme.

We do not have a first barn sale date scheduled yet, as I have a lot of work to move the store and organize the barn for the sale.

This is not goodbye – this is, we will see you soon, whether it is at a barn sale, antique show, or just in town saying “hi”

I will miss my daily interaction with customers, you all have been the best, and I could not have done this without all of you!

I will not be gone, just in a different location, I will just be a call, email, or text away! Or at a show near you! 😊

Happy Thursday!

I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy. As of right now the store is closed until April 26th. Hopefully we’ll get the stay-at-home order lifted. I don’t know about you, but I miss the store and customers.

I don’t know if you have noticed yet, but we have been working on our on-line stores! We are still adding to them, and yes we do have local pick up available.

We would love to know what you think of our on-line stores and what else you would like to see in them!

You will notice that our blog is looking a lot different recently. We are setting up a store right here so you can purchase and keep up with what is going on at the store. No new website addresses to learn – win win



Hello 🙂







Back to work – you all have an awesome day!

I am excited and I think it is looking amazing! We will still have our blog posts with store updates, and sharing ideas on how to use items you find in the store.

If you notice there are 2 new menus toward the top of the page. The top menu has customer info, and the on-line store link takes you to all our products, second one has links to the different categories for the store. On our footer page – down below – you’ll find all your account links, store address, and email info, our blog categories, along with our social media info.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!! Right now via email, and hopefully by the 27th of April, we’ll be back at the store!

All payments are SECURE as they will be going through paypal, and we will not be collecting any of our payment info!

See you Soon,

What’s Happening @FunkyVintiques

I hope this post is finding all of you and your family well. We are doing good at the Ranch – not a bad place to be when there is a stay at home order.

As we all know the state of Colorado is shut down with a stay at home order, excluding essentials.

With our physical store being closed for more than a month, we decided it was a good time to get our Etsy store going! Our store link is:  http://etsy.com/shop/funkyvintiques

We are busy taking pics and getting items ready to load up into the store. All items are available for shipping, but if you prefer we can schedule an appointment to pick up your items @ Lafayette Antiques, Lafayette, Co – where is our booth is located.



You would think that Ziggy would be doing a little better about his separation anxiety, but it seems to have gone through the roof.

What is a pug mom to do?







Calico has always been friendly since she showed up at the ranch, but she seems to have become a little more attached the last couple of weeks.

Oh, well – I have been spending extra time with all of the residents at the ranch! 🙂


Have a great day, and we’ll be updating more soon. If you have any questions about what we have available, just ask.

Spring Gardening Ideas

If you’re like me you love spring and lots of color! I have gotten myself some vintage planters with lots of color to cheer up the store with color with plants & succulents!

Below are some simple some unique planters found around the house, or in our store! 🙂



This is an adorable idea for a simple wire basket. I may have to re-think baskets! How about you?







Enamelware – LOVE – I have many pieces of enamelware planted and on the porch. So versatile and so many colors available!

Look at the red with red. Stunning!





For a little extra color in the house or on the porch, water dips come in a variety of colors and materials. Super cute.

Have a great week.

Easy Easter Table Decor

Easter is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends. I remember when the kids were little and we would gather at grandma & grandpa’s house for church and dinner.

The girls always loved coloring eggs for the Easter bunny to hide. As they got older we would head to the buttes and grandpa would bbq and we would ride horses.

I am a simple girl and LOVE simple decorating. Below are a couple of ideas using rustic and natural items you can find in our store.



Such a simple table center piece – reclaimed wood box and with flowers and eggs, and the colors are energizing.









Here is an adorable bunny with some greenery inside a cloche. So simple and yet so adorable.



We would love to see how you use simple, rustic, and natural items in your decorating!

Have an awesome day!
