Antiquing On Saturday

Janet and I left on Saturday morning. It’s always fun going to new antique shops, stuff so I was looking forward to this day trip. We drove for an hour and then finally hit our first shop. I look for primitives and Janet is looking for cottage. Off we went, seek in diffferent directions. I found 2 wonderful old baskets for Caroles Country Store. , so if you love old baskets, hope on over and check them out.

It was getting close to lunch time and our tummys were telling us, let’s eat. We drove into Easton, MD. It’s a charming little town, with lots of shops to visit. The Tidewater Inn has a fabulous restaurant, so went in.

Down the street from the Tidewater, there was another inn, called The Inn At Easton. Looks like they’re missing a shutter.

After lunch we went to my favorite shop of all, Country Treasures.

I was there a couple of years ago, and was so anxious to go back. This shop has the most wonderful country antiques ever! Mostly painted pieces. Later this week I will show you some photos that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to stop back. Oh, ok, here is a little teaser.

Until next time.
Happy day everyone!

    Hi Carole!
    Looks like you had a marvelous time antiquing! You picked two fine baskets~ the little one with the lid and handles is a German made child’s basket purse. This style was common from the 1860′s thru to the 80′s. Go check out the dag I posted today on my BLOG~ no basket in it, but I know you will appreciate the mural the children are standing in front of ;)
    Have a great week~ R

    Rachael, I just can’t thank you enough for that information. I love it even more knowing what it was used for!! I’m coming over to your blog to see the picture.
    thanks so much.
