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.
This is Tina and my wonderful friend Sharon. We didn’t have a lot of time to visit, Tina was very busy helping customers.
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.
