Antiquing Day Trip

Have I said that my sister is in town right now? She's been here since Monday, and is staying until Friday. She's on a week-long shopping adventure for her Etsy shop, Frog Goes To Market. Her and my mom have been out shopping from morning till dawn every day, while I sit at work. Boo. :( But yesterday I had a day off so we all went antiquing together! We set our sights on a few new antique stores we had never been to.

The first place we stopped at was definitely my favorite. The Seville Antique Center. It had a ton of primitive and really early antiques. Lots of great (and very expensive) tables, chests and cupboards.

They had lots of those antique painted wood signs that I just love but can't afford.

I was drooling over this painted basket but like almost everything else in the store, it was way out of my price range.

We stopped for lunch at Cool Beans Cafe. Haha! It was, in fact, pretty cool beans.

They had really good food, and iced coffees. That pretty lady is my sister, Ellie. :)

These corbels were something I kinda wished I had bought. Why do I always do that? I don't buy something I know I really want, then regret it later. Duh.

Keep an eye on Ellie's Etsy over the next several days. I got a glimpse of some of the things she found this week, and they're really cool!
