What in the world did Donna buy?
A covered bridge!?!
No, but Olive Out and I did buy quite the load last Friday.
We went to Statham, Georgia - about a 300 mile round trip for me.
First, a brief stop in Madison for a Goodwill fix and lunch.
Love the silver floral presentation basket.
Two valances of pink floral with pink ticking gussets.
Two utilitarian baskets.
Statham has one long street with door-to-door antique stores.
We started at Antiques and More - a huge place filled with great stuff.
You can visit them at their Facebook page HERE!
Look at these four primitive yokes.
I have cleaned them and will begin to strengthen the wood and apply varnish as soon as the rain disappears.
I see them down the middle of a table with candles.
A wonderful green cupboard door.
A watering can.
A street sign.
A plow head.
A Coke crate.
Tres Ases pear crate from Argentina.
Two sewing baskets.
The beginning of a small subdivision.
A pair of unfinished legs.
When you walk in Antiques and More you are welcomed with friendly smiles and coffee or cocoa.
Next we traveled down the street to Second Hand Rose.
It is bigger than it looks from the outside.
Beautifully arranged booth spaces.
I bought the green drawer.
The market basket.
Ten tiny amber jars/bottles.
It was rusty, crusty heaven!
You can visit Rusty Rose at their Facebook page or their website.
I am torn about what to do with this primitive beauty of a table.
It has issues.
It may need a session on the couch.
A dilapidated crate.
A stack of berry baskets.
A large Dutch sack made into a table runner.
Two rusty doll strollers.
They are in the midst of makeovers.
Two bird cages.
We also visited Factory Antiques (Facebook page)
because Evelyn, the owner, has been a customer of mine.
Great architectural items!
Olive and I scooted out of Statham just a minute or two before the afternoon traffic from Atlanta hit.
That's when we took a brief rest at the covered bridge before hopping on I-20 East and home.
Statham is definitely worth a visit, though it would probably take a few visits to squeeze in all the shops.
At least you can visit their FB pages and drool over the items posted.
So do I have enough for a Friday Finds post tomorrow?
LOL - Of course, silly.
