Hylabrook

I visited my favorite antique store today...Hylabrook Antique Mall in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  Being the 4th of July, the booths were decorated in red, white, and blue.  I went in search of...nothing in particular except bargains, whatever they be and did I ever find them.  I think I spent over 2 hours there.  I actually went in before lunch and was in there so long that I was starving but I didn't want to leave yet.  Becky, the sweet saleslady (and someone I've known for years from my antiquing ventures) shared some cookies with me so that I could make it through.  Antiquing is hard work, you know, I needed some sustenance to make it through my treasure seeking adventure!  Anyway, after 2+ hours, I emerged from there with about 6-7 bags of goodies for less than $60!  I haven't unpacked the car yet so I'll get pictures posted of my finds as soon as they're unloaded.  In the meantime, enjoy some pics I took of the booths...and, if you're ever in the Murfreesboro area, be sure to stop by and check them out.  Click here for their information. 
I took this because I love old, mismatched silver.
This booth always has an eye-catching display!
Primitives and ironstone
Really wanted these cuties but they were $14.95 each : ( 
And the glasses would have gone so well with this! 
I hope you enjoyed.  I'm going to get some sleep.  I need my energy tomorrow to unpack my goodies!

  1. I'm enjoying your photos so much! I especially love the one of the silverware, as I too dig old mismatched utensils. And that gave me an idea. I can start taking photos of things I love the look of but don't need to own the specific item(s). Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Thanks Cindy! That is a great idea! I have too much "stuff" as it is...I don't have to own more, I can just look at the photos anytime : ) I don't know if you looked at the archives (2009 posts) but some of my altered art is pictures there. Thanks for visiting my blog!
