We're almost ready for fall and that means we're almost ready for a Midwest shopping experience filled with vintage decor.

While I love summer, especially this year when we're actually allowed to be out and about doing things, but the number one thing missing from summer is the home decor!

Sure there's like some lemon trays you can buy... I have a pineapple beach towel, but unless you live in a lake house, summer decor just isn't as fun as fall decor.

Thus, it's time to start thinking pumpkins and acorns.

But actually, the shops that are part of Vintage Shop Hop are so much more than just pumpkins and acorns.

Over 400 different shops and boutiques are part of this year's Fall edition.

October 1 and October 2 you can drive around Illinois and Wisconsin and shop your little heart out.

Now's the time to call your favorite shopping buddies and put it on your calendar.

Right now they are looking for additional shops and boutiques that would like to be a part of this year's shopping 'crawl.'

You can register here, you MUST be open on both days in order to be a part of the Vintage Shop Hop.

PS: they already scheduled the spring shop hop for March 4 and March 5 in 2022.
