I planned to spend Saturday antiquing in Buffalo, MN with our daughter Julie, but due to a medical emergency, she wasn't able to go with me. Everything turned out fine, but I shopped alone while my chauffeur waited patiently in the car.
Saturday was cold and rainy, so it wasn't much fun walking from shop to shop. I certainly didn't spend much time looking at the outdoor displays. As we were leaving Buffalo, the sun finally came out for a few minutes, so I asked my driver to stop at an architectural antique shop that we've driven past many times on previous trips. It looks small from the outside, but is actually quite large and filled with tons of fantastic, but expensive stuff! Door number 20 above wasn't even priced.
This is how I window shop. I get ideas from antique stained glass windows for creating my own. I've got some old window frames stashed away that I'd like to fit with custom stained glass and there were plenty of examples to look at here. These are English windows that the owners purchase on their yearly buying trips to England.
They have windows, doors, sidelights.....you name it, they've got it.
Entire walls of wood panels.
They even had a few rustic pieces. This was quite large and only $55.
A fancier version for around $400. Much too heavy to carry on top of the Matrix.
How about this stuffed riding toy?
Would this chair make potty training easier? I think so.
This was a fun place to browse, but a little out of my league. In the end I did find one clearance priced item.
It needs a little work..........
but for $4.00 it will be the perfect apron for a little baker!
So, that's how I window shop.
Thanks for stopping by!
