Antiquing Again

img_2214.jpg

I drove up to Adamstown last week. It was a beautiful day and I hit the PA. turnpike. It’s not the scenic route but it’s the quickest way to get there. It took an hour and I was anxious to get shopping. I was disappointed to see that one of my favorite shops had closed. My next stop was Adams Antiques. It used to be a place where I would always find something wonderful, cialis but that was years ago. I stopped, cialis you never know what you might find. Today I didn’t find anything.

Back in the car I go to my next favorite stop. Yay, I found something. This was a must have, don’t you think? Initials and 1859! Love it! My next stop was really good. I bought a few very nice early choppers, a wonderful early rye basket, maybe 18th century. Love this old hand made mirror too.

I thought these hand carved spoons looked so nice along side of the nasturtiums, and I wanted to share them with you. I found some early bottles too, with that gorgeous bubbly glass that is so beautiful.

As you can see, I found lots of treasures for Carole’s Country Store and they will be available soon. I felt good about that, and headed back home. It was a good day.

    Ooh, you found some wonderful new goodies. I love the color on the basket. I am anxious to get out and do some more antiquing too – as soon as my wallet recovers from my last big purchase. :)

    Hi there Marilyn, I love the mirror too, but I would have guessed that the rye basket would have caught your eye. Thanks for the visit.

    I love all of your new found treasures! Our antique stores are now more like junk stores, nothing really exciting. Sometimes you do come across a great find though. I want to go to a big antique show in upstate NY in August, my sister lives in Utica and this takes place in that area, also near the town where I grew up, Cazenovia, NY! I an excited for that!

    Wow!, Love all of your finds! If I lived closer I’d be begging to tag along on one of your antiquing trips! :)
