Come Antiquing With Me

I went downtown today to do a little shopping.

I hit up one of my favorite stores.

It's called The Sparrows Nest.  It's charming isn't it?  Brick street and all.

It's so inviting in a quaint sort of way.  Look at that neat bike.  It really makes me want to go inside and see what all the fun is about.

It doesn't disappoint either.  So much to look at as soon as you step in.

I love looking at all of this.  I could literally stay here for hours.

This store is a mix of old and new.  You can find a wide range of things from antiques to brand new boutique clothing and jewelry. 

I think that's what makes it so fun to shop here is that you never know what you're going to find.  

Btw, I bought something from this booth below.  See if you can guess what it is.

If you guessed the lamp then you guessed right.  I couldn't resist.  It was marked a really good price and I thought I could always use a floor lamp at home. 

This is a good spot for it.  

Now all I need is a good book.  :)  

Thanks for shopping with me.

Til next time, 


  1. Hi Foxxy! I agree, those little shops are so much FUN! I could look for hours too! Your floor lamp looks wonderful in your living room! I could use one myself! BTW....I LOVE your CHANDELIER! It's BEAUTIFUL! I am currently keeping my eyes open for a different one for my Dining Room! It needs an update! Thanks for visiting and your sweet comments! Have a BLESSED weekend! Roxie

  2. Thanks for stopping by The Crooked Yarn this morning. I crochet all year, but during the warmer months, I'll usually do more dishcloths and smaller items, sometimes a baby blanket or two. When winter comes, it's time for the bigger projects to keep me warm!

    This shop you posted about today looks like just my kind of place. I don't get to buy very often, but I love to browse antique and thrift shops. So many neat items, and all with a story to tell.

  3. What a great lamp and gorgeous place that you put it! I wish you could come decorate my house! :)
