Picking Red Shed Antiques to explore on our Spring Break Day, we weren't disappointed. Valerie was so sweet. We were reminded again of what a small world it is after comparing notes and realizing we were practically neighbors! I'll let the pictures do the talking. My words wouldn't do it justice. So here goes...

I just loved Red Shed Antiques.

All the displays were lovely along with the gracious proprietor.

I took a bunch more pics, but you should just go yourself!

We hope to go back in April...


I purchased something...I'll take a picture later






We ate lunch here...Yum, but I'm still partial to our tea room,
The Victorian Lady.



We went to a couple of Secret Places and then...


Next... we went to Terrell...



This place is so Amazing, for all the toil that went into it. It's the traditional antique store, with booths rented to different vendors filled with good stuff, BUT, what is most unique are the booths themselves! Each booth is a representation or replica of a real place in Terrell, like the church, bank, somebody's porch, and on and on... screen doors open and close to the "porch", a bell hangs high from the"church" steeple...all the while shopping, worshipful gospel music envelops, making one feel they've been to church... worth the trip. Don't forget while you're so close to go on to Poetry to Mindy's, she's so fun and so is Primitiques... There is another really cool place, right next to the one in Terrell, unfortunately, they weren't open. A less traditional store, I've really enjoyed browsing through it, before, so I was disappointed.

The weather was good...and a good time was had by All!















ATTENTION!!!!!

It's not too late to join my first party and giveaway:
