A Day Trip

This past week my friend Sue and I went for a day trip....to a wonderful place....in the middle of nowhere....which are often the best places to find treasures.

Leigh {the owner} is the sweetest....and always has great stuff....and lots of inspiration.

See that stash above....the wire basket....galvanized bucket....enamel bucket....ironstone butter pats....white mirror....and Atlanta Bartlett book....those are the treasures that came home with me....are you getting a sense of what I love....it always seems....I bring home the same things...that always makes me laugh.


And look where we get to shop....in Leigh's gorgeous barn....I swoon every time I see her barn....love it!




Leigh always has a great assortment of furniture....barkcloth....vintage jewlery....dishes....she's got it all....

So....you ready for a road trip....

  2. Great finds! LOVE the barn reminds me of the one on my Grandpa's farm. He would have gotten a kick out of the idea that someone has a store in a barn and an even bigger kick that anyone would buy old enamel and galvanized buckets! Sadly when they sold the farm most of that great stuff went to the dump, wish I would have been older and could have saved all the "GREAT JUNK"!


    Best wishes,
    Tammy

  9. I LOVE it all! It is probably a good thing that we do not live close to each other, as we would be fighting over the same goodies!

  13. Love everything you got. It's all great!

    If you have a chance, see what I posted yesterday that I got at the Nashville Flea Market. I'm thinking you might like a few of my finds. Maybe you can give me a bit of advice for a tool box I found.

  33. hi andrea!

    i just noticed your store. this whole blog
    thing is eye candy to me, and i don't see
    all the wonder at first. :(

    anyway, we are building a home/cottage
    and i will, in the next few months, begin
    to purchase some of your lovely, vintage
    treasures.
