What a fun "Artist's Date" for me. (Just a warning, I went a little crazy with the camera. This is a picture intensive post.) My husband and mother in law watched the boys while I went searching for the barn with the pink silo and black polka dots that sells antiques. I originally passed these stores when we travelled to Florida. I made a mental note that I had to come back. Well, I found it and so much more. I found some things I liked in the pink store, but it was my first stop and I didn't find anything I was dying to have. I did find lots of cute vignettes and took some pictures.
Although, now I'm looking at my pictures, I'd love to own that frame made with vintage jewelry.
The next place I went to was next door. They were brand new and just opened up. I got the prettiest embroidered yellow rose hankie. The store also had some vintage kids books. Maybe I'll pick those up on the next trip. There was also this darling painted circus tray.
The next place on the list was the Old Lucketts Store. What eye candy and a source of inspiration. This store also caught my eye from the road and I looked them up online. They have vintage clothes, jewelry, furniture, vintage table wear, vintage hardwear and lots of outdoor things. There is also a design house, but RATS, it's only open on the weekends. Oh well, another excuse to visit.There were tons of things to look at inside and out. I loved this one room that was garden/French country themed. There were some new stationary/gift type items in the room. I purchased some really pretty sheets of gift wrap. I just can't say no to that stuff. It's getting late, so I'll sign off here. I couldn't wait to get some of my pictures online.
