SERENDIPITY MARKET!!!!!!!

CANTON here we come.  Sharon Sarandos  (one of the most talented, gifted and giving lady I have the pleasure of knowing) and I left at 7:30 a.m for Canton to Laurie Anna’s Serendipity Market.

Not only were we anxious to see the merchandise, Laurie Anna and of course the sweet Tina of Cherry Hill Cottage,but they were serving champagne and finger food.

We arrived a few minutes after 9:00 and the place was alive with ladies and gents, who were just dying to buy some or all of the beautiful merchandise that was for sale.

Outside on the porch, Patina Green had her lovely wares displayed and on the ground was Willow’s Nest.

I took as many pictures as I  could…….001

This is Laurie Anna trying to check out the long line of talking, laughing ladies with all their purchases.

We left with our bags of goodies and oh yes, we had our glass of champagne!

Next on our list was Paul Mitchell’s, a little disappointing.  They had closed off part of their store to rearrange and most of the Easter was in that part.

Not to be discouraged we headed into town and visited another antique store and then on the totheTea Room for lunch.

Just to walk off our lunch, we decided to visit a few shops around the square…first stop a darling boutique called The Very Thing, and they have in my humble opinion some of the cutest clothes and accessories….I took a couple of things off her hands.  We visited a few more stores, then headed to Athens. 

We stopped at the Sweet Pea and then found a cute shop with a Tea Room and had dessert.

Next stop was Star of Texas Antiques in Palestine on Oak Street.  She was putting out Easter and had some cute Easter Trees, etc.

As I stepped up to the counter to pay for the nest and eggs I had bought, there sat a Waterford Crystal Ship’s Decanter for less than 1/2 price in perfect condition.  Wow, there was Roy’s birthday present. 

Laughing, broke and so happy to have shared my Friday with Sharon, we headed home.  Sharon with a head full of ideas and me to feed dogs, cats and goats. 

What a great day we had….wish each of you could have been with us.

Hope I haven’t bored you.  Tomorrow I will show you some of our purchases.

Love.

See Y’all

We should have made it a carpool event and had Cat Daddy do all the driving! We traveled pretty much the same route as y'all. We went to Tyler from Laurie Anna's and then over to Sweet Peas. Don't you just love Fiona and Gloria?
The next time you're that way, you need to detour about 10 minutes to Malakoff and visit Curious Goods and The Junk Palace. Great stuff there.
It WAS fun and wild at L.A.'s for sure.
So great to meet you and hope we run into each other again.
Debbie

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm
not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
