Buying Trip to New Hampshire

My junking buddy, Sandi, and I, went up to New Hampshire on Friday.  We had a blast.  Our first stop was at White Home Collection.  Wow!!!  We really did very well there.

We were greeted by these great red tables.  We were in heaven, and the shop wasn't even open yet.

This white shabby bench came home with me.  I will probably bring it in for our Holiday Open House on Dec. 3.

Everywhere we looked, the displays were wonderful.  Soooo inspiring.

I loved this old metal mailbox filled with greens.

We also went to another shop in Petersborough, Twin Elms Farm.  We got some great stuff there too.

There's Sandi walking into this gift shop we saw.  I had to take a picure of the wrought iron fence, it was stunning.

All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

I was having such a great day today.  I woke up early, and went to the flea market with Ray.  I got some really cool stuff.  The sun was out.  We stopped at a bakery on the way home.  I was just having a snack before I headed into the shop, for the afternoon.  I took a bite out of a beautiful piece of Italian bread, when....................
I heard a crack, I knew it was my front tooth.  Now I have to go into the shop looking like I live in the backwoods of West Virginia.  And, I also have to go to a wake after I close the shop.  Oh well, I guess things could be worse.  At least I can still laugh about it.

New Fall Finds

After the first storm of the season, we lost the electricity at the shop for two days,
 (a shopkeepers worst nightmare). 

Thank goodness, we've been having a really good two weeks. 

Everyone has been bringing in some great things, gearing up for the holidays.

We have three new Shop Girls, Patricia, Louise and Debbie.  They are a great addition to our shop. 
Some of the Shop Girls moved into new spaces.

Can't wait to see what everyone is going to do for Christmas.

The outdoor flea markets are winding down (I'm very sad about that).  Went to one last Sunday with my husband, it was 27 degrees.  But it didn't matter, the thrill of the hunt was still there.  That is where I get my best finds.  So, now I will be visiting other vintage shops instead, (at least it will be warmer, and I'm sure to find some great stuff.)
