This past Monday afternoon I took a trip to the big city of Houlton, which is about 40 min. from where I live.
I had to pick up some new lenses from my eye doctor, so I thought I'd do a bit of shopping at the antique store while I was there.
Here are some of my finds....
An old photo. The store owner threw it in for free. I love it! I wonder who she is, and what her story is?
A couple of books...Ethel's Gift and Stories from the New Testament, .50 ea. The latter book is only about 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". So adorable. I am a lover of old books! How about you?
Last week I visited a thrift store and picked up these goodies...
A lovely picture that is just my style, and only $2. I love it!! I have it hanging in our dining room, and it's the perfect spot for it!
I also picked up some old frames for .50 ea. I love the design of this one. It's quite small. It only holds a 3" x 4" photo. I still need to work on a stitchery to put in it.
Then there's this one...
I believe it's a 5" x 7". I stitched a small sampler to put in it.
I love this saying, don't you? I found it on Pinterest. The word "securd" was misspelled on purpose!
On Saturday my husband and I stopped in to visit a local store that was holding it's grand opening. It's owned by a local man who is a fantastic carpenter! His store is filled with some really great shelves, furniture, and so much more.
My husband and I purchased this shelf from him.
We love it! It's just what our entryway needed!
This weekend there is going to be a Trash & Treasure show nearby, so I think I might have to go check it out. There are always a lot of antiques vendors and crafters that bring some really great items.
I'll be sure to take pictures!
