I Love Antiquing!

I Love Antiquing! Love it! I love looking at the treasures that I never knew were treasures. Who knew the Pyrex mixing bowls we used every day, and NEVER worried about breaking, would someday become prized possessions and sit on a shelf just to look at! I think that’s part of the charm of antique stores…those nostalgic things we grew up with. Something that brings back memories. I’m always saying”my mother had one like that” when I antique shop!

When I’m in Bend I take a 30 minute drive to Redmond and here’s where I shop…it’s the Redmond Antique Mall. A HUGE store with lots of different vendors. By the time I go through this store I don’t need to go any place else. It takes several hours just to browse and I always leave with a treasure. Always!

I took pictures for you. Pretend you’re with me shopping! If you see anything you want I’ll go back for you so come on in! (:

 

See anything you want? Sorry Pam http://www.pamkittymorning.blogspot.com/, I called and the Red boots are gone. Tee Hee!

 

And what did I bring home after all that eye candy?

A circa 1920’s fireplace screen! It’s going back to California with me. My husband will hate it, but I think I’ll bring my lamb to help the “look”. He’s sure to see the lamb and NOT the fireplace screen, right?

 

 

Up next is the Sister’s Quilt Show on Saturday and then it’s back to California on Sunday.

  • Barbie Jo - Oh my goodness, I love antiquing too and see lots of stuff I would love to have in the pics! And by the way Ann, I have tons of vintage pyrex and I use it everyday, it’s the best ever! Have fun at the show, we are all jealous for sure!ReplyCancel

  • from little acorns - I love that antique mall! I saw so many things there last year. . . but had no way to get them home on the airplane. It’s so funny that you posted about this place, because this afternoon – as I was sewing some binding on a quilt – I was thinking about what I did find there last July. . .(some great embroidered linens!) I hope that you (& Anne?) had a great time. . . So does this mean no Spingfield trip? ;-)
    Hope you have fun at “the show” in Sisters!’

  • Miss Jean - You didn’t mention the best part. No sales tax!!! I did see some things I liked. Who wouldn’t. We may take a drive up to Oregon in September, so I will for sure have to stop by. Especially since Redmond is my grandson’s name!! Glad you had a great time.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle - The “we had one of those” is one of the neatest parts of antiquing! Or the “I wish we’d had one of those, so let’s buy that one!” part of antiquing.ReplyCancel
