There’s A New Antique Booth in Town…

Well, you know I took the plunge and did it!….

…..Moved into Space 24 of Melville Trading, located at 127 West Clay Street in Mebane, NC.

I have embarked on this new adventure with Amy of Atta Girl Says

Amy is a very talented and creative person….so I know I can learn much from her…

…..and maybe pick her brain from time to time on the technical issues of blogging.

The antique mall is about 45 minutes from me…but I do not mind the drive as it is a beautiful drive…

…..through the countryside..passing many farms like this one:


So, here is our little booth.


It is difficult with the lighting to get great pics…

Now we are otherwise known as CAPRICORN LANE….

… Amy and I share the same birthday of January 4th…We are Happy Cappys!…


The banner says coming soon…but we have finally arrived!


And there is “Milly” in the background…that beautifully painted secretary that Amy so lovingly restored.

There are vintage school items, such as a school desk and chalkboard/easel..and lots of accessories…

…..of milk glass, depression glass, and vintage kitchen wares.




And here is that pretty antique rocking horse of Amy’s in front of that desk that she painted.


And how about that terrific vintage laundry cart!!…


Lots of vintage kitchen items to see…





There’s a crocheted spread and shams in the laundry cart.

Rhonda of Ramblings of a Southern Girl came by to pay us a visit…She liked the crocheted spread.

Rhonda then walked around to peruse the other booths…when she came back to get that crocheted spread..

……….it was gone…someone had bought it…as Rhonda said, when you snooze you lose…Sorry Rhonda!


So if you are in the area, come by and pay us a visit…we are always bringing in new items..


Like this wicker baby scale that I have decided to part with.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful day!!

  6. Congrats on Capricorn Lane! Wishing you much success. Jan. 4th is also my mom’s birthday. How far is Meville Trading from Tanger?

    • It is the same exit as Tanger…you pass the Outlet and go to the T in the road and turn right…it will take you into Downtown Mebane….Melville Trading is at 127 West Clay Street…Downtown Mebane has many cute shops and restaurants…come and visit!!

  7. Love all the things you’ve added since I was last in the booth, Shirley. And that vintage scale — better keep me away from it. I am coveting it big-time.

    I’m sorry Rhonda didn’t get the spread, but I’m glad someone bought it! I’ll be on the lookout for another one for her. 🙂

    And I hope you told Kim above that we are at the same exit as Tanger. So, she definitely has to make the drive now.

  10. I have been there & will be back & look up your booth. I used to have a wicker scale – used it for our daughter!!

    Sheila – you will have time & Clay st is cute with lots of places to shop at.

  11. Congratulations on your newest venture! That will be fun to keep that space stocked and finding things to sell while making money doing it. That will be a great creative outlet for you. I see alot of nice things for sale already. I wish I lived near you so I could shop there. I wish you a lot of success with your business.

  12. Congratulations and Happy Shopping & Selling Shirley! The selling makes the shopping possible 🙂 We used to have an annual “should have bought it when I saw it sale”, same as you snooze you lose!
