Welcome To Vagabond Brocante!

Oh My Goodness am I ever excited to launch this new blog and website! Vagabond Brocante is a brand new venture - and one that is dear to my heart. Now, for any of you who may have just stumbled onto this new blog, and don't know who I am, my name is Dianne Hadaway, and I've been online now for going on 6 years with my creative blog and website known as Mama's Pocketbook.  And now, I'm ready to add to my online presence with Vagabond Brocante!

Those who know me, know that I love to hunt for treasures. I enjoy thrift stores, estate sales, yard sales, flea markets, antique shops, town squares, and even scouring the internet for unique items and great deals. Some call it junking, and I like that term too! If I had the means, I'd spend a great deal of my time traveling all around the country - heck, why not the world? - searching for cool stuff and bargains, meeting wonderful people, and having a grand 'ol time!

I've been collecting a wide variety of pretty and useful things, furniture, home decor, linens, fabrics, bric-a-brac, dishes, and all other kinds of things that make me happy. The time has now come though, where my house is too full, and I'm making the effort to simplify my life, my home, and get some peace and zen coming my way!  I still want to indulge myself the thrill of the hunt, but it's time to share those prizes and goodies with others and that's what Vagabond Brocante is all about!

  1. Hi Dianne, I followed the link over from Facebook. I am thrilled for you and wish you the best with your new venture. As one treasure hunter to another I know the pleasure of hunting and finding that special treasure. I spent the day yesterday in the foothills searching and had great success with old paintings. Drop by when you get a moment. xo Lynn @thevintagenest
