If you have been blogging for any length of time you know how nice people in blogland are. There is a very sweet lady who reads my blog and she invited me to go thrifting with her in Monroe NC which is where she lives.
I met her at her home and just had to show you a couple of pictures of it. My new friend is a typical southern girl, sweet, pretty and gracious and it is reflected in her beautiful home. Isn’t this room elegant and beautiful?
This antique family heirloom full of rose covered china greeted me in the entryway.
My new friend collects tole trays and has them displayed beautifully in her kitchen. It is a wonderful collection.
Aren’t they stunning?
After stopping at McAlister’s Deli and having their decadent chocolate spoon bread for lunch, (why have a soup or salad when you can just get right to the dessert?) we headed off to some of her favorite thrift shops. I only took photos of one. The owner is Betty Baker. She’ll give you a good southern welcome and make you feel right at home.
The shop is Golden Girls Antiques 306 West Windsor St. Monroe NC 28112 704-296-5550.
Come on in and take a look around. There’s lots to see. Betty has a talent for arranging everything with flair.
I told you the shop was wonderful! I only bought one small item, but I’ll show you that another day. My new friend and I had lots in common and I had such a great time. We decided that we’ll have to do this again soon.
Hope you have a great weekend.
