Kid in a Candy Shop... a few pics of my recent treasure hunt. Forgot camera. Thanks, iPhone.

Going back for him...he'll live in our backyard.  
Will only need 4 burly men to lift him.

Regret...why didn't I buy these?

Love these.

$945 for the big daddy?  Out of my price range.

Sigh...no words needed.


More fencing and gates.

What globes?  I want the cabinet!

Lots of iron stars.  I love the old steps.

See the bronze ducks?

Green gate?  Yes.

Not my thing, but still wonderful to look at.

Large rusty chains.  More regret.

I want them all.  I spent a lot of time in these bins.  
The more expensive ones are in cases.  
What's not to love?


I could literally spend days digging thru patina rich cast offs 
from another era.  How about you?

Giveaway will start at the end of the week for 
The Nothing Will Happen Club!

Enjoy your Sunday.  :  )


  1. i do like to look at places like these, but i confess, i don't buy things very often. i do hope you can bring that sheep home, though!

  2. Great patina on those pieces, but I would love to reach through the screen and have those chippy old sleigh bells (?) Very cool.

  3. Me again. Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. I'm going to do the same, and follow you too.

  4. What a fun place to look around! Love the sheep and the beautiful gates.

  5. I could spend the whole day there! Awesome shots!

  6. i'm with you, i could spend all day in there but places like that make me hot and sweaty :) i fight with myself trying to justify buying everything i want :)

  7. well i hope i don't duplicate my comment, i think i messed up.
    i think this place looks awesome and i would love to spend some time there too! but my wallet would be in trouble i think :)

  8. oh my! Where is this place? I am in love.

  9. Wow, this looks like an AWESOME shop! I so wish there was a place like this near my house! There is one place that I think might be similar a couple towns over that I still need to check out. Here's to hoping it's as cool as yours!

  10. Hmmm, thought I had left a comment, guess not =( What a neat place, love the patina'd copper and the iron stars. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Looks like a fun place to go and take pictures! Lots of great photos!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me your thoughts. I appreciate each and every one!
