The Antique Shops!!!

Saturday afternoon it was off to the antique shops we went.  There is a small problem when buying antiques out of town....getting them home.  But I knew there was one thing I was looking for....some chenille bed spreads.  Meg had the cutest curtains hanging in one of her girls rooms and I have been thinking about updating laurens room and thought this would be perfect.  I did indeed find a bedspread...huge.  And it just so happens that Kimberly's husband will be in Portland Wednesday and will bring it for me!!!!  But here are a few of the pics from the day out! 
The 15 passenger van we rode in was a bit crazy on the way there.  The wind was bad and we were in the back so it was kinda like a carnival ride....Traci hung on the whole ride!

Bearly Makin-It was our first stop.  The hired in some local help cause they heard we were all coming!

Just a tiny corner of the store
I wanted them all...I think my mom has them all somewhere????

Traci was pushing people out of the way to get to things....I was embarrassed and had to leave!!!

 And then we went to another place that was a huge old building that had random big stuff in it.  There was so much potential in that shop.....but I would never have enough time for those sort of things...It was cool though.  I really really wanted this sign for our shop.....fitting!!!!

And here are the curtains I hope to be making very soon!  Really cute!

Were you in the back back row of the van? I have been there when it's windy. I should've passed out complimentary motion sickness pills before we ventured out!
