The warehouse is in an old lace factory in Norwalk, CT and these faces look at you as you park your car:
And when you walk in, this black beauty greets you:
I was drawn, of course to anything I could possibly incorporate into a creation or repurpose for my home. Need trim?
I LOVE buttons:
Remember when zippers were so popular in scrapping? I never really understood that one:
And there's BLING!
They have tons of fabric:
I really wanted these for my stash storage, but didn't want to spend the $:
This is the hardware section and is my absolute favorite place to browse:
I know I can turn this into something:
And I'm in the middle of turning these into something BeAuTiFuL:
As a pharmacist, I just had to take a picture of this:
And I really think I'm going back for this. It's going to replace my ugly plastic Iris cart:
This stuff is just totally cool
How cute are these?
and this is just gorgeous:
I want THIS in my house! But my husband might kill me:
I thought this was very cool storage.
and these are just the coolest things. You could do tons of things with these, right? And it's my favorite photo of the day:
So, I ended up with a handful of little treasures for $10.00 and a LOT of ideas. We'll see if I break down and replace my ugly Iris cart with that wooden cabinet . . .
Are you still with me?! If so, I dropped my mil home, and headed to my house. I had to start dinner, but a Thelma and Louise feeling came over me and I passed right by my cross street. Continued down the long and winding country road, drove by the reservoir, and crossed state lines to get to another very cool antique store. OK, I'm trying to make it sound wild and crazy, but the New York line is just minutes from my house.
And the photos and ideas from that field trip will be for another day! Cool stuff! Can't wait to show you what I'm making from my finds . . .
