Just twenty four miles south of Portland is the historic town of Aurora.
It's filled with lovely historic buildings and many antique stores.
My favorite is the South End Antique Mall.
I thought I'd take you along with me and show you a few of my favorite things,
starting with this beautiful old store cabinet.
Wouldn't it made a perfect kitchen island?
You'd have to have a large kitchen, and a lot of money, as it was pretty pricey!
I really like this farmhouse style cabinet with the screen door.
It's only $129, and there's a big sale for Memorial Day weekend, so maybe it will be even cheaper.
Now where'd I'd put it in my wee little house is another matter altogether.
I spy a French street sign!
Do you see it?
I'd love it, but can't justify spending $159!
This smaller pie safe style cabinet is cute, and affordable too!
If it was a different color, it might have come home with me, but again,
where would I put it?
A farmhouse style hutch filled with transfer ware!
I love it!
This white cabinet with the red paned door is my favorite.
Here's a beautiful old wooden secretary desk and church pew.
Milk glass and other assorted glassware sit on top of this beautiful old tablecloth.
What are your favorite items in this photo?
I love the small cream colored cabinet, that large butcher block,
the white hutch, and that painting of Mr. Hood.
Here is an interesting white dresser,
with room to hang small clothes.
It would be perfect for a nursery or child's room.
I like this old kitchen cabinet.
Those old metal dust pans hanging on the wall bring back memories.
Hello, pretty farmhouse table!
Here's an art deco style corner hutch filled with colorful fiesta ware.
Cute painted step ladder, too!
I love that ironstone pitcher and bowl,
and the old wooden box caught my eye as well.
I just window shopped this trip,
but might have to go back for the big sale at the end of May.
In the meanwhile, I leave you with this good piece of advice.
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!
