Antique Shopping

How would you describe the experience of discovering an antique shop? Exciting? Delightful? Like your pet dog that just found a new bone? YES! That's how I felt Saturday when I took my friend, Karen, to an antique shop I discovered. Karen and I had spent the day in So Cal at a fabulous Victorian tearoom at Barbara's Tea House with tea and brunch from 10:00-12:00 and gift shopping in Rancho Cucamonga, the British Emporium shop in Upland to purchase a few UK goods, then finally to Precious Times Antique Mall in Redlands.

 Roosters have drawn my attention lately. One day soon the right one will come home with me for my kitchen patio. I loved this wire rooster. Wire gadgets and items have also been attracting me lately. Notice the little wire grocery cart. Doesn't it look ancient and so cute? Toward the end of my shopping day I purchased three plants 50% off - all three amounted to only $4.00! Now I can't pass up plants at that price. After all, it is time for Spring planting.
