Let's Go Shopping

Good things happened on the way back from delivering my stack of paper work to the tax man. I had a nice lunch with my mom after the "drop and run," then my car found its way to a couple of antique shops including Magpie Antiques in Ripon, CA.  Janet Dyk, the proprietor gave us a nice warm welcome and we both had such a fun time exploring every nook and cranny of this fabulous new shop.

Warning:  This post is picture heavy, so I'll try to keep the comments to a minimum.
Let's go shopping...

I knew we'd be in for quite a treat the moment we walked in the front door.

Vintage goodies everywhere!


I love this huge cubby packed full of treasures.

This one is a more manageable size...if only I had a place for it.



Isn't she lovely all dressed up in her spoon necklaces, lace and corset?  Dress forms are everywhere!












This black metal cash register drawer in Becky's booth (Sweet Cottage Dreams) had to come home with me; you know I love little storage compartments. I also brought home a tattered, but interesting black case that will be getting the stencil treatment.




Storage heaven!




The Love of Lace....oh yeah!

  1. I was going to ask where Ripon was and then you told me. It is a good thing I am never on the road between Stockton and Modesto because I saw a little, or big, something in every photo that I liked. I would love a room with enough space for one of those cubbies.

  16. Places where you feel like you are discovering something are the best. Those cubby things would be so cool to have. Now I want to make some and stuff them full of all the goodies I have lying around. Thanks for the shopping adventure!

  18. I am so envious you, having such great shops. Although it might be good I'm not close to one. The octagon storage cabinet would have had to come home with me.
