More Shopping!

by Sherry

A couple of days ago I showed you my booth in  West End Antique Mall.  Thank you so much for all the sweet comments left for me. I truly appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to comment.

Today we will go shopping in some of the other booths in the antique mall.  With 250 dealers you are sure to find something to take home.  Enjoy!

You have to know I love this booth .  They carry a lot of transferware.
This is one of only a few booths that carry painted furniture.
I would love to take the antique English water filter home with me.
There are hundreds of antique books in this space.
Do you see all the coral?  Gorgeous!
This reminds me of shops in England.

Thanks for stopping by and browsing the mall with me.  If  any of you are ever in Richmond I would love to go antiquing with you… I know all the great places.

Hello, Are there any Virginia bloggers out there?  The only one I am aware of  is Mikey at  Shabby French Cottage.  Mikey and I shop at the same places and I have to beat him there or all the good stuff is gone!  It seems like Georgia, Texas and California have the most bloggers and Virginia hasn’t caught on yet.  If you do live in Virginia  I would love to hear from you.

Been on vacation, so I'm only just catching up. Love your booth Sherry – some fabulous things there, and your tour today had got me wanting to buy an air ticket!
Thank you for showing us round,

What beautiful booth spaces. I was at an antique mall on Saturday that made me so claustrophobic I wanted to run away, not shop.
What you are showing is inspiring and welcoming.

This is gorgeous!!! I keep telling my husband I want to have a trip to VA and he keeps taking me to Walt Disney World. He says we don't have a truck to bring back purchases from VA. LOL So awesome are these booths.

Hi Sweet Sherry!

Acck,,,I feel like I've been MIA, very busy as of late!
Love the photos! My Son Andrew lived near Richmond, but he's back in Washington now! Wish I would have made it back there when he lived there……..

I think I have the "Mate" for that wicker chair! It was my Grandmothers,,,,,,looks identical! Love the water dispenser, I can see why you'd want it-gorgeous! Also love those needlepoint chairs! Yummy!

My blog friends are scattered all over, many "semi" local whom I've met or hope to meet soon, but I've gotta say, I wanna get my backside down to Texas one of these days and visit some of those Cow Girls!

Maybe we should do a Blog Event somewhere in the not so far future and connect! How fun would THAT be???

Lulu Kellogg and I are "meeting in the middle" so to speak at Silver Bella,,,,,She coming from Maryland and me from Washington State…..Can't wait!

Looking forward to a week of creating and getting ready for my show in Oct……..

Talk soon! Hugs and Love,
Shell

Oh man, Sherry… I love the vintage linens, and the animal section- and I have always been a sucker for transferware- although I particularly like the reds more. What a fabulous place! I don't know if I could work there, I think every penny I made would be spent right away!

Oww I can see some things that I would like to take home with me!!

Oh, how I wish the shop were near me although it's probably a blessing in disguise from a financial perspective! Thank you for always providing inspiration, Debra.

Hugs,

Oh! I could do some serious damage in there! It is probably good I don't live close or I would be spending WAY too much time and money snatching things up! 🙂

While commenting on Porch Day's blog, I saw your blog name and had to come take a look since I simply cannot embrace the pared down look 🙂

Hi and I'm off to look around…

Thanks for the distraction from school! Sadly now I have to get back to abstract art. They would think I've lost it if I started designing this stuff, however I know you would think I'm sane lol! Check your mail at the latest the beginning of next week for your surprise!!

Thanks for the plug! I really need to head over to the West-End mall. I'm working at Paragon Place this week, so maybe I'll run over there when I get off!

What a wonderful place to shop! I LOVE that shelf/cabinet in the first pic with the blue transferware (love that too of course). So many pretty things here…I hope I'm in your part of the country some day because if I am, I'll be calling you to take me here! 😉

me, me, me! I am in Virginia, in fact, just outside Richmond and shop your mall all the time. I am very familiar with the booths you showed. I visit there and the one further down Staples Mill all the time. I am so excited about finding your blog and you. And I totally agree, it seems all the other great vintage bloggers are in Ca and Texas. I just drool when I see their shows posted. I would love to go junkin with you anytime, anywhere. xoxo Lynn
P.S. I used to be in an antique shop but pulled out 5 years ago and now I am itching to get back in. I have put my name in at two places across the "river". 🙂

I am a German gal moving to Virginia in a few weeks time! My search for antiques, second hand and thrift has led me to your blog! Have to create a home from the scratch and already source ideas. I love having found your blog and the antique mall.
