Scenes from the Shop

With the sun shining and the flowers blooming it's a great day to go downtown to a great little antiques store with a coffee bar.
This looks like a good place to park.
The old iron fence leads to the entrance gate.
Sun rays peek through the China rose bush out front.
This bush originated from a 150+ year old rose bush from the Sams Plantation.
The roses smell as beautiful as they look:).
Even this bee is enjoying the fragrant petals.
Bold blue skies illuminate the massive historic structure.
Palm trees abound in the surrounding yard.
Let's go inside.
Ruby red glass stands out against a backdrop of roses in the distance.
Vintage buttons and blue and white china beckon shoppers to linger...
while cobalt blue glass sparkles in the sun light.
Old linens compliment vintage china. Hmmm...I smell freshly brewed coffee. Care to join me for a cup?

Kim-

More wonderful pictures! The colors are so rich and vivid in the roses and the glassware. What a lovely shopping day you had! That image of the sun peeking through the rosebush almost gave me a religious experience! Maybe your church could use your image somehow.

If mew leave some milk outside on the porch for Kramer and I, we'll be there! Very pretty glass - excellent photos but thank you, I think maybe we should stay outside, don't you?

Purrs.

Hi Kim! Love the old linens and the blue glass...gorgeous! The new shop is called Best Thrift and is on Spalding at Holcomb Bridge in Norcross...although we haven't had as much luck on the prices on return visits. There's a St Vincent de Paul in Buford at Buford Hwy that has a small selection...but great prices! The GW on 141 in Peachtree Corners is tried and true! Good luck!...hugs...Debbie
