Vintage Black Friday

Okay, I have been saving this post so I could join all the fun at the French Cupboard for Vintage Black Friday.

A couple of weeks ago, while camping, I explored some new shops. All last summer, I tried to visit this shop in a nearby town but, every time I went there it was closed. Well, finally it was open!

The guy who owns it makes wood folkart items and sells some antiques. The building is an old bank that was built in 1904. All of the original floors, ceilings and doors are still in place. By the way, the 2 story building is for sale. You can buy it for $45,000. I would love to do that and turn it into my own shop!

Now you have to check out this ceiling. The original tin ceiling. I love it!!

This was on the table as we walked in. And this is why I will always live in a small town. I love this kind of feel in a small community.

Unfortunately, I could never even think about buying anything in here. WAYYYY out of my price range. But, it was fun to look around!

  1. That was a grand tour of the shop. It looks like it has some really neat things. I would love to have that rooster.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  2. The rooster caught my eye too. Loved the tour of the shop. That price for a building with that much character sounds very reasonable. I'd love to buy a building like that and have an antique shop in it.

  3. That was a really cool building. I love the ceiling and the original vault door. It would make one great shop for you!

  4. Oh goodness that ceiling is just stunning. That is just not done any more. I know whay you mean about never buying a thing in a place like that I feel the same way exactly. hugs♥olive

  5. Amazing old building..that ceiling is to die for!
    Happy day!
