Thanks to Tam at The Gypsy’s Corner for sponsoring Three or More Tuesday. Please visit her blog to find more participants.
Last Thursday, Sharon, Karen and I took off for Malakoff to check out the shops there.
Our first stop was at Curious Goods, this is Sharon visiting with owner, Donna.
Old Hair Dryer and purple chair they had for sale.
Front of the store.
Right down the Street is Junk Palace, a darling shop, I bought 2 cloches in different sizes for $9.00.
Across the Street is Thrifty Sisters and Sharon got 12 etched glasses for 50 cents each and 2 cups for 50 cents each. I got 4 cups for 50 cents each.
Of course they have a purple flower on them.
I had purchased 8 cups on another trip we took, so I now have 12 to serve soup for my bunko or bridge group. (or fruit).
We left there and headed to Lindy Mall….I loaded up there. Roy loves Waterford Crystal and I found this ships decanter.
A pair of Swarovski Candle sticks.
Love House by Blue Sky.
Wooden floats that are used on fishing nets.
Roy will use these at the lake.
Blue frame I will use at the lake.
Cane River Cuisine from Natchitoches, Louisiana printed in 1974.
I love old and Cajun cookbooks.
Next we went to Antiques on Royall and then to a Mexican Restaurant for refreshments and lunch.
We then headed to Athens for a look-see at Winnie & Tulula’s and The Reblooming of Sweet Pea’s. There are lots of things there to oooh and aweee over.
We then found a brochure on a Winery just outside Athens, so off we went.
It is Tara Vineyard & Winery , wow.
There is the most beautiful big old 2 story house built by the Murchison's, it is called The Inn at Tara and they have 3 bedrooms and you can also rent the entire house.
We tasted some wine and met the owner , Patrick Pierce.
On Saturday night, they have a Bar-B-Que Buffet, live music and then you can stay in the Inn. What a nice weekend.
We stopped in Palestine at the Star of Texas and visited 2 of the antique malls.
Headed home about 5 or 5:30, tired but laughing about the day, saying what we liked and disliked.
I probably left out something…a few extra pictures.
I know the last 4 were taken at Winnie & Tulula’s.
We had a great day and will be looking for some place to go.
