Once again, I met up with my friend, Kat (of JustabeachKat blog), for a day of shopping and lunch. And we hit the usual spots, some antique stores that are in the area: Bienvenue, Smith’s, and Holiday Antiques. All great places to browse. The fun thing about antique stores is you never know what you’ll see.
I walked around and snapped pics as I went, so I hope you’ll feel like you’ve been right there with us.
An old mirror
A cutie-pie dog in one shop we went in. He is a Maltipoo, we were told. Totally adorable.
This is outside Bienvenue. Lots of neat old European things.
And of course, in Florida, you will always find plenty of shells for the taking (or rather buying).
Love these glass floats, I think I must get some of them. Love that lamp too.
Framed sea fan.
Love this idea for a candle holder.
Pretty old aqua shabby piece.
This pic doesn’t show it, but this is about the biggest birdcage we had ever seen. HUGE, with a huge pricetag too.
Aqua and toile chair. Sweet!
Kat made me pose in this rooster chair. No, I wasn’t tempted to bring it home. Check out his feet. 🙂
Love this big ole’ armoire, with just enough shabbiness.
How about license plate art? Have you ever? He is cute.
Shells and bottles.
More glass floats.
Dovecote, I think this is called. Neat old piece.
Isn’t she adorable?
Don’t need another fan, but loved this one.
Pretty aqua door.
Loved how this all looked together.
Kat spotted these pretty mother of pearl bracelets, so I bought one for only $6. And I already have necklace and earrings to go with it.
After a bit of shopping, we hit The Back Porch for lunch. I haven’t been here in ages, so it was fun to go back. Great food, right on the beach, very casual.
This was our view.
And we pigged out on this. Got our fill of seafood for the week. Love it!
Then Kat drove me by a really pretty B&B, Henderson Park Inn, right on the beach. It has a Nantucket feel to it. I’ve never been to New England, but this is what I’m picturing.
And how about all these white rockers on the porch, looking out to the beach? Nice huh?
Their beach. Can’t ever get enough of this view.
Love the shingles.
And one last stop at the Restoration Hardware outlet in Silver Sands outlet mall.
Lots of pretty lamps. We had fun looking, but I didn’t buy a thing. Some of these lamps were good prices.
And some candlesticks.
A fun day with Kat! We had a blast and it’s always great to meet up with her. Thanks Kat, for taking time to hang out with me again this year.
I even got to see Miss Daisy again. We had fun snuggling and I think she remembers us staying with her last year. 🙂
