Stopping for a walkabout!

Long car drive days mean stopping every couple of hours to stretch my legs and work put the kinks in my back.

Isn't it fortuitous that I just stumbled upon this antique mall near Charleston, WV and that there is also a Chinese restaurant around the corner for lunch?!  

It's just road trip karma watching over me!

I found another little universal travel iron in its original box for $10 and a fire king bowl to replace the one I broke for $12!

After a bite to eat I'm back on the road again--you all know the song!!

"On the road again, I'm on the road again..." YUPPERS know that one. AKA Willie Nelson!

How on earth you find all of the wonderful goodies in any given antique mall is amazing. HAPPY FOR YUO...travel iron kit is a winner!

LOL! Drive safely!

These stops are for medicinal reasons in case anyone asks. Lol. Really, two irons in one trip? What are the odds? That's a great looking shop.

Beautiful bowl!
What's the skinny on that iron? It must be pretty great since you're buying a second...
I want that red white and blue improved 9 patch! Ooooo! : )

I wish I could sniff out those kinds of finds!! If you want to sell one of those irons, I'm willing to take one off your hands!!
Safe travels, Bonnie.

Mary said...

The quilts looked good too. I need to find me an Iron like your one in the box. It would be fun to go antiquing with you!

If I had known you were going thru Charleston I'd have taken you to lunch! The last time I visited the Antique Mall I found a wonderful older Singer that I left there. Hope you are home safely. Debbie in WV

Will put this one on our list. Have to see how close it is to the grandbaby.

Would it be possible for you to list the antique shops in their own link? Please, I know it is possible but I do not want to ask anything to hard of you since you give so much to us as it is. Just a thought. Do not know if others would appreciate it as well.
