I Found Some Awesome Things At Preservation Station [PHOTOS]

Being that I used to live on the West side, I knew that the old West Louisville Elementary School had been transformed into Preservation Station.

Sorry, that's just what I thought. But, my goodness was I wrong! Sunday, I headed out Hwy 56 to check out Market Days, which happens the first weekend of each month.

I was more than impressed! It was amazing!! Over 100 vendors, live music... I was in awe! AND... more importantly, I snagged some really cool, unique finds! Check out what I found...
