Finishing the Terrell Field Trip!

Now I awhile back I talked about this other store in Terrell that was so interesting, but I didn't take pictures inside... I went back, so here you go!


The old Barber Shop


 Moma  the original one and only "Mrs. Opal"




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.

See the church bell!

The "Church" with its stained glass windows!







Some booths have cool old screen doors...














I bought an old galvanized janitor's mop bucket with the mop wringer... I think it will make a great planter or fountain, even.  It was another great Texas day!

Go HERE for my 
Prior Lives Party... We're still partying so come on over!
