Yesterday, my husband and I spent the day together going shopping and out for lunch. We had such a good time. We went a little north of us up to Jasper, GA and then into Ellijay. It's close to the mountains and very rural. We found some great places to shop. I had no idea that there were so many antique shops there!
We first stopped here.
This place had just about anything you were looking for!
I thought this headboard was pretty. It was marked sold. You'll notice that in this store, there is no "styling" that takes place. Everything for sale is out in the open for your own imagination to do with what you want. Notice the big traffic light for sale just behind the headboard!
I spied this large tobacco basket hanging outside. Too bad it wasn't in very good condition. The price was good on it though.
After going inside, I spotted this old Toledo scale. Loved it! I don't have a place for something so large though.
One thing that caught my eye at almost every antique store we went in were these old cameras. I really liked them! They would make a great collection mixed with some books. They were in the $40 range.
I also noticed a lot of enamelware everywhere! Tons! It was available in lots of different colors and sizes too.
I love these old crocks. Plenty of them were for sale.
After all that shopping, we had worked up an appetite for some lunch. We went to this place in Ellijay. It's called the Canterberry Restaurant. It was SO good. They sell mostly soups, sandwiches and salads. And they have a decadent dessert counter too! I had a cup of tomato basil soup and chicken salad sandwich. My husband had a turkey club sandwich with chips. Everything is made fresh and homemade there. We WILL be going back!
There were more shops in this town too.
So, it was a fun day of exploring, shopping and eating!
Nothing better than a little day trip to rejuvenate your spirit.
Thanks for stopping by.
