Back to the shop. There were so many rooms to explore and stores to visit. Glad we got up early in the morning to drive up to the mountain areas for a fun day of shopping. We went on a weekday so in most of these shops we were the only ones in them besides the cashier at the front desk.
In one of the shops my husband came in a little after me and when the cashier asked him if he needed help he started being a goof ball and acted like he was stressed from driving all over town looking for one particular for item. Speaking as if he were out of breath he said…
“ I sure hope you can help me…I’ve been driving all up and down 260 looking for a gorilla in a wagon with a Rim country t’shirt on and wearing a Budweiser cowboy hat…just can’t seem to find one.”
The cashier answered back…
“ Well I believe I just may be able to help you there with that one.”
I heard my husbands voice from the back of the store and laughed. I remember the gorilla in the wagon when I first walked in and thought it was so funny. You can find the weirdest things in antique and junk shops.
So many shelves, drawers and rooms filled with all kinds of things.
If you ever need to kill some time, just stop off at an antique store.
I remember this photo down below. Used to be able to buy it on a postcard.
My husband loves these old ceramic jugs, the old and rustic kind that is.
I love the bowls filled with little baggies of items. I find my best items from mystery bowls like this.
I want a bird bath for the garden but this one was a little too beat up for the price they wanted. I don’t believe it is antique, just weather damaged.
I would have to redo the birdbath and for about $70 dollars for a modern and damaged piece that was way too much. Especially since we are going into a period where the economy is touchy. Best to invest in other things.
This mosaic birdhouse looks unfinished to me. I think I saw it once at Ross, or was it Hobby Lobby? Can’t remember now.
Loved this dustpan. It was only $5 and I regret not buying it. May still be up there the next time we head up. I think it would look nice up on the wall in the kitchen in Our Little Red House and it’s practical too since it can be used for cleaning. They only sell plastic ones now days and the handles usually break off after a year or two. The modern ones now days are so cheaply made that they don’t stay around for long.
This lamp is a great center piece to make a plain room pop with some color, very unique.
And this was another one of those fun little unusual items that I tend to be drawn to. A wooden advertising bear.
What I bought….
I also bought a pretty tea towel and floral wooden box, you can check out those items in my July updates post.
Hope you all like this shopping adventure. Stay safe out there you guys and happy shopping adventures to you all.
I am offline and blogging for the month of August to concentrate on projects I need to finish. Thank you so much for your likes, follows, comments and visits. I will be back online to visit you all in September. Have a wonderful month filled with fun adventures.
