Road Trippin' Antique Stop

Hello Lovely Friends,

This past weekend I went on a little road trip with my Dad, my youngest sister, and my youngest brother. We were heading to Columbus, Ohio for my cousin's graduation open house. While traveling, I spotted a huge Antique mall just off the highway in Findlay, Ohio. I ooh'd and ahh'd about how big the place was and my wonderful Father asked if I wanted to stop in. My sister and I were super excited!


 Here are my finds and a few treasures that I admired ~


Look at all that chippy goodness!


Don't you love the blue doors!? I really wanted to take them home with me.



I'm really liking the cabinet look. 


I've been looking for a nice set of books to display. This purple set is so pretty so I just had to have them. They were $3 dollars a piece. 

Look at all the transferware ~


I've been searching for a set of four matching transferware plates for quite some time now to put on plate racks. Brown or blue are about my only requirements. 
The plates I've looked at online are about $25 dollars a piece. 


I bought this whole set for $25. I'm not really sure what I'll do with the rest of the set though. I actually like this pattern enough to build up a collection, but transferware seems to be scarce in the Grand Rapids area. I don't know why but I just can't find it there. 


I wish now that I had bought this little guy...


Love the Coffee Tin!

I fell in love with this little vase. It matches the blue in my living room perfectly. 
(I forgot to take a pic at the store)


The blue pitcher was $9.50

A big ole' thanks goes out to my Dad for letting us stop in and not flying by the place like a certain husband of mine would do! Just kidding, my husband is a saint about my antique obsession.

A few of my sisters super cute Instagram photos of our antique stop ~ 




She bought this cool vintage suitcase and also a large, oval shaped, chippy  white mirror. Her items were amazingly cute!

Her photos are so much cuter than mine too...

Have a wonderful week everyone, I know I will! I'm off for another weekend excursion visiting family. This time I'm going to the town where I grew up for an antique shopping trip. I'm pretty excited! 

Love,

You found some great stuff, Jamie! I'm about two hours from Columbus {I'm closer to Dayton}. Love those transferware dishes! A favorite of mine, too. The extras would probably looks great in a metal dish rack or how some people put them in those great wooden totes with other pretties. I'm sure you'll find somewhere to use them!

When I come to visit MI, you and I are going thrifting!! You would be proud...I found 4 chippy white shutters at the flea market a few weeks back...$10 a piece! You always find the best stuff!

What a great place to shop, and your dad's so nice to offer to stop there! I love it when shoppers share their "finds," and yours are great. I especially like the blue vase vignette. What a pretty picture! More good stuff to move, Jamie! : )

What a lucky find! Some people just have a knack for finding great places like this! Your dad sounds like a sweetie!

Jeffrey's is a very fun place to shop and it looks like you had a great time and found some cool things. The bunny was cute! Don't you just hate that when you leave and think about something you left behind? I'm you newest follower from Ohio!

What fun - why would anyone go to a mall when they could go to an antique shop?! So glad you had a really fun family outing.

Angie said...

That store looks amazing! Most of the time I go in one they don't look near that good. I'm glad you had a fun road trip with your family!

BECKY said...

Wow! What a wonderful place! I could spend some serious time there!!
Just all kinds of wonderfulness!

Hope you're having a great week, gal!
Hugs,
Becky

Thanks for stopping by my blog now I have found you and your blog!!! Love your blog. I love those old blue doors too. I have been having a love affair of late with old chippy doors. I made a headboard in our master bedroom out of old doors. I love the history they bring to a room.
