A weekend road trip

Mr. Wonderful and I took off for Lancaster, Ohio on Friday morning. We stopped in Sunbury at Valentine's antique store and learned that they will be closing. They will still sell on line and have auctions once a month. I was sorry to hear this. I have enjoyed treasure hunting there. Mr. Wonderful played golf while I shopped. We then headed on to Lancaster.
 This is my favorite antique mall in Ohio! Not so large that I go blind but a good selection of treasures. The prices are awesome. Saturday the majority of the booths were having a one day sale. Score!
These pictures are from my favorite booth.
This is the delightful young lady that my favorite booth belongs to; Polly. Her booth has a very french cottage style. Polly gave us directions to the Urban Farmhouse. WOW! I wanted it all. I settled for a sweet bird cage and stand , the most delicious smelling verbena flower soap, and a beautiful bird's nest. As if that wasn't enough, Polly suggested Billy Cricket's for dinner. Now my favorite Restaurant is in the same town as my favorite antique mall. How convenient! There is also a TJ maxx. Sweet!The food was the best! Creme Brulee prepared perfectly. The perfect desert for a perfect day!  I will share some of my finds later in the week.~ Happy Hunting~ Robin
