With all that drama, we still managed to fit in a little road trip last Thursday. We got up early and headed out without a real plan..... sometimes you find the best places that way. We came across a little town called Cross Plains.
Cross Plains is a tiny town, but what we found there was great! We stopped at the Historic Corner House. This sweet store is owned by Teresa and Perry Story. They specialize in reclaimed barn wood pieces amongst their incredible vintage finds.
Like this trike... I wanted to ride it away! So awesome!
Their store is located in a historic home and it has all those period details that I love... like chandeliers... there were quite a few... swoon...
They have made this room a Gourmet General Store... they sell all kinds of goodies including coffee. Many of their products are locally made.
They also have a fun bath product room. They have their own line of bath products (sorry.. no photo!) called Farm Chic*k.
I loved the candles... they are in milk bottles! And Teresa designed this display and the her Mr. built it fr her out of reclaimed materials.
another chandelier... be still my heart!!
They had lots of really unique finds like this scale.
It was so fun meeting them and their sweet pup Pete. This shoppe had such a homey, welcoming feel to it. I managed to leave with an English Ironstone bowl, but there are quite a few other things that I really wanted. If you want to find out more or visit, you can find out more about them via their Facebook page.
Right next door was a little diner and it was lunch time, so we decided to get a bite there. Incredible place! It was and still is an operating drug store. It had everything you imagine old drug stores to have.... a counter with stools... milk shakes.... really cool cabinets. I decided to try a Salty Lemonade and let me say... I am going to try perfecting it at home. I wish I had one right now!! The Mr. tried to steal mine and he ended up ordering one to go. YUM! I don't know if I can ever go back to regular fresh squeezed again.
I love fun little road trips like this and finding new spots and meeting new people. It was a great short trip. I hope to take quite a few of these this summer.
Okay, I have a lot of new pieces to finish this week for the shoppe... photos of those soon. A
bye for now!
