David asked what that red, white, and blue thing was on the front of this building? I guess you don't see many of these anymore, and certainly not outside the unisex salons of today! Sometimes you don't realize just how much things have changed!
The food is unbelievable, and served buffet style! Today's special was turkey and dressing and chicken and pastry. ....And the pastry is the old biscuit dough kind! Need I say more! :)
Below was Kevin's dessert, strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped topping.
Below is the best antique store that I know of. Donnie, one of the owners, refinishes many pieces himself, and some are "Charleston worthy!" ....for a much lower price! :)
Browse around the two shops with us.....
The piece below was at Kingston's. I'm not sure what it is, a headboard maybe? But I thought it was pretty and interesting.
OH, Be still my heart, ...It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!
Kevin and I have looked at these old ice chests for years and many have been really rough on the inside.
This one was in perfect condition on the outside and very good on the inside. It still has the original engraved McCray hardware, and shelves, and even the manufacturer's instructions on the inside of the door...still intact! Sawdust lines the inside of the wood for insulation... that I didn't know. We decided it had to come home with us!
And so, here it rests in all of it's glory! :) Kevin says it is going to the farm house, if we ever finish with it! I say it's not gonna happen! It fits perfectly here, dont'cha think???
In order for the ice chest to fit into the breakfast nook area, we had to remove a leaf in the table. And since we removed a leaf in the table, my strawberry basket arrangement was much too large for the table. So, I gathered some things out of the craft closet and storage, and made a new smaller one! My new project for the day...
Before I close this post, I would also like to share a few items I found at the yard sale and flea market Saturday. Not alot of offer, but did find a few cute items.
The navy blue "bee" plate....$1.00!
Ironstone White pitcher...$3.00!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Forgive me if I am not faithful in my visits this week. We will be spending some of our last few days of summer vacation at the lake, and the internet reception is not real good there! ~Rhonda :)
