A Great Day of Antiquing

Well, most of you know that I love a great field trip.

I love to travel and I have no problems with driving hours to get to a great place

to antique. And so does my field trip partner.

So off we went this week, traveling to one of our favorite places . . .

The Antique Marketplace in Lemoyne, PA.

Antique Marketplace Lemoyne-Housepitality Designs

Now I know some people like to keep their favorite spots a bit of a secret, but me being me,

love to share so that others can experience a great place to find things.

It is fabulous as soon as you go through their doors.

I spotted this cutie as soon as we walked in . . .

It is a combination of a step ladder and hand truck.

Antique Cradle/Demijohn-Housepitality Designs

This green demijohn was huge . . . it was a great price to start with and an additional 15% off . . .

So what did I do . . . I passed it up. Why do I do that?

So here are SOME of our purchases for the day.

I cannot wait till June/July as this marketplace is expanding and adding another 100 vendors!!

The next day I paid a visit to Rust and Feathers with my friend and field trip partner.

With two purposes . . . she was filling her booth with new goodies and I was shopping.

When I turned the corner, I saw this fabulous piece in Mary Alice’s booth . . .

Wish I had a spot for it!

Rust and Feathers/Chateau Chic-Housepitality Designs

Isn’t this a super cute collection? . . . Love that red farm table!

I have been on the lookout for more vintage garden items . . .

I kept walking around saying, “now where can I put this, and where can I put that?”

Now that rusty, crusty typewriter stand would be great for a plant stand, or when painted a cute color,

great in a kitchen . . . or my laundry room . . . hmmmmm.

I have more to share on this wonderful place. . . and there is a “new person in town” in this

antique shop . . . I was wowed when I saw some of the beautiful things that the new vendor was

bringing in and got to take a great peek of her setting up. Can’t wait to come back and see it

all done.

Had a great time and looking forward to the next!

Do you travel great lengths to shop at your favorite places with ones who love to do the same?

Have a great weekend !!

  7. Shirley thank you for sharing your favorite place to shop. Another blogger always talks about her favorite place but when I asked where it was – she ignored it. I live near her – too far from you to go there but I still appreciate you sharing it. Thanks again.

  8. Oh MY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Want so many of those things. What a gorgeous collection to shop!!

  11. Oh Shirley, I would be too dangerous with you! Yes, my sister & I travel to another sister’s in OH to shop, and then I most always waylay my husband when we travel so I can explore antiques. I thoroughly enjoyed Antique Marketplace in LeMoyne on our way home from our trip last fall in the NE. Love the hand truck, and I have a stool like MA’s that’s soon going into my space too. 🙂 Happy Spring!

  19. Shirley,
    Loved seeing pictures of one of my favorite antique haunts! I am so happy to hear that they are expanding the Antique Marketplace and adding more vendors although the place is pretty large already. Hopefully, when we come up to visit my husbands family in PA this summer they will be completed.

    I have also been to Rust & Feathers as well and bought the cutest little chicken feeder there back during their Holiday Open house. I decorate for each season and need to find another one as my Mother feel in love with mine!

  20. Shirley,

    Love all of your purchases! I love so many things in your photographs as well! Thank you for the tour. I love to see what other shops in different states has in them. It seems your spots has better things than some shops in our area! Love to travel around locally and treasure hunt. I am out of room and need to control myself, it is so hard when you have a passion for old things! ;0

  21. Hi Shirley,
    Thanks for taking us along with your to these beautiful shops. I saw tons of treasure I would love to have too.
    Glad you had a great outing. Have a wonderful week end.
