What's inside? Stan Portleys

The antique store is always so much fun.

What's behind the window display? Let's look! 

They have lots of freshly painted pieces. Isn't this little white buffet  a beaut?

Lots of vintage silver and glass

This is a sweet painted cabinet 

Beautiful detail on the top

Filled with some nice transfer ware.

Teddy bear picnic

The white is so versatile

Lovely new crockery too!

I would love one of those teddy bears. So sweet. Being a Canadian I noticed the IGA sign in the window. I don't think they are in the US are they?

Ok, now that I have drool all over the laptop keyboard I am going to faint☺ Gosh, I love all of what I saw. Nothing makes me happier than to rummage around a store filled with old things that have a story to tell.

How could you bear to leave such an enchanting shoppe?
I love the white furniture, the rose napkins, and the fork napkin ring. And those littl ebears in their chenille dresses! What an inventive way to recycle old bedspreads!

I would love to visit this shop in person! I love it all--especially the red transferware! Hope to visit Canada someday. My co-worker is from Toronto and I think she is the first person I've ever actually met from Canada! I've been trying to talk "C" into taking a trip with me to Deanne Fitzpatrick's rug hooking seminar in Amherst, Nova Scotia someday!
Thanks for your kind words regarding the loss of Wendy! I really appreciate your kindness. V.
