A Visit to a Group Antique Shop

Today while we were in Tunkhannock  a quaint little town in the northern tier of Pennsylvania, we stopped in at a group antique shop we had just learned about. It is called the Bridge Street Market Place.  The building was huge and set up beautifully.  Several areas were done up as rooms, displaying the items they had for sale.  I went around taking pictures of some of the things I enjoyed most.  I didn't buy much but had a great time.

Upon entering the store  this great little white dinette set caught my eye.  Wouldn't be great in a small kitchen?

Nearby I found this amazing mirrored room divider.  Too bad it wasn't for sale because it was stunning.

Turquoise and coral compliment each other so well, don't they?

I was quite taken with this bedroom .  Everything goes so well together and makes the room quite inviting.  All the old, mismatched furniture painted white makes it such a cheerful space.

And here is a scene that would look great on a porch.  The chairs, shabby chic for sure, were just begging to have someone sit in them for some relaxation.
  The lady who owns the shop has a great eye for what goes well together and makes the room settings so inspiring.  I started taking pictures to remind myself and then realized I should share them on this blog.
Hope you enjoyed them.  Would love to see your comments.

Tea Cup Tuesday

Here I am again on Tea Cup Tuesday.  Be sure to visit the other sites after you visit me.
(Just click here...  to go to the site that has the list of those participating.)

And I would love your comments as well.

We took another visit to one of our local flea markets on Sunday.  I found a lot of teacups available although I didn't find any to buy. Here are pictures of some of them.

 This pretty blue one looked like a Shelley and I got quite excited when I saw it.  However it wasn't. 
It was a name I had never heard of before so I didn't buy it.
 This brown and white one was quite old but it had a good bit of roughage.  I might have bought it if it had been in better shape.

Here is a group of Japanese (I think) demi-tasse.  
They didn't have any name on the bottom but they were nice.\

 This is a group of several types.  There is bone china and several of the copper luster style.
And finally here is a collection already started.

I love to look at all the tea cups. I have so many now though that I probably won't buy many more.
  BUT!!! never say never.

Comeback next week.  I will have some things to show that are presently in my antique shop.
