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.

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?

Antique purchases from Lemoyne, PA-Housepitalty Designs

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!

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 !!
