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….

…..as 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.

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!

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

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

Tagging along…

Hubby had clients to see in D.C….

…..so I tagged along.

He saw clients all day for the first day, so I just stayed in the hotel room, catching up…

…..on things I never seem to have time to do..

……….read and watch TV 🙂

The next day, we headed home….

And look what we see….yes, Wegmans!…The Grocery Store Mecca…of course I had to go in!

Just wish we had one in N.C.!!

AND… on our way home, we pass through Leesburg, Virginia…

Now…do you know where I am headed????

And lots of great stuff to see…

And even some things for hubby to see…he is perusing some old golf clubs…

And here’s a few snipits….

And then after seeing all the great things outdoors…I ventured inside….

…..and came upon Miss Mustard Seed’s fabulous items….

Too bad the secretary would not fit in the car.

Other “pretties” of hers….

We then left to go downtown to grab some lunch….

……after a wonderful lunch, I spotted an antique store on our way out of town….STOP!!!..

The shop was wonderful.. antiques from Europe: however, mostly from Germany…

IMG_2645

There was an entire room dedicated to German grain sacks and linens….

IMG_2646

But then look what I found!….

IMG_2648

The store owner called it a “wine balloon”…I guess that is what they call the basket weaved wrapped demijohns.

It was huge…they had other smaller ones…but we liked this larger one…I loved the two-toned color of the weave.

I did not take many pictures inside….I was unsure how they felt about it…

So here is my stash…my treasures of the day….

I picked up the old chair with the missing seat and the milk glass candle holders from Lucketts…

The “wine balloon” and old basket…from the antique shop, German Favorite Antiques….

Clipped more hydrangeas this morning….
