road trip...

I recently took a junkin' road trip with my friend Karen who is also a vendor at the shop.
In between all the laughs, I managed to take some photos of some wonderful shops.

Our first stop was Counting Sheep Antiques.
Sorry I didn't take an outside photo...I was just so mesmerized by the charm of this old barn and it continued as I walked through the door...


This beautiful old sign caught my eye...I would love to put it in my den over our computer!

This booth had lots of industrial treasures...


I loved all the warm, worn wood tones in this space...


I also loved this french inspired booth and the sweet blue table...


My friend Gayle also has a beautiful space here.  I took the oval frame home with me...


Our next stop was The Vintage Retriever, look how cute their store front is...


This shop has a perfect blend of wholesale items mixed in with vintage treasures...


I know...you love the old map too!  I didn't take that home but I did take home one of the old auction paddles, #22 for the day Jim and I got married!

I really wanted to take this old demi john home...it was the perfect shade of imperfect grey...


I also loved the sign behind the checkout counter, done by the owner...


The attention to detail was amazing here and I love how she painted the old floors...


Our last stop was Crompton Collective.  The have a cool space full of vintage clothing.  I loved their sign...


Oh, and another piece I just loved that would be a perfect desk in my studio...


I sure hope Jim reads this post...soon.

They had lots of old industrial pieces that I seem to gravitate toward lately...



Have you taken any junkin' road trips lately?

Thank you Karen for a fun day and thank you for stopping by!

Don't forget to follow along with me on Facebook and Instagram!

Thanks for taking me along. I saw several things that would put a hole in my pocketbook, beginning with "your" desk and ending with the wine sign!

Sandi,
Thanks for showing us all the wonderful junkiń shops you went to and making us drool over! The Oval frame is really pretty, loved all your picks and many more.
