Today I’m joining Tiffany at Shabby Scraps for her “Field Trip Friday” début. The idea is to photograph interesting destinations and purchases, to post and share with fellow bloggers. Tiffany hopes that these Friday posts will become a shopping and entertainment resource for anyone planning a trip. Please visit Tiffany’s blog to sign up to participate or to link to participants. http://shabbyscraps.typepad.com/shabbyscraps/ Today I'm visiting Historic Downtown Franklin, Tennessee. We were experiencing severe storms, with damaging winds, the day of my visit, so outdoor shots were not possible. I will save the story of the town for another Friday when I can include photos. My destination today is the Franklin Antique Mall.
The Mall is housed in a huge old building, that was once an ice house. It has many odd floor levels and lots of nooks and crannies to investigate. It takes a while to see everything.
Vintage church pews and antique doors add charm to the entry.
Straight ahead, as you enter the building , you see a wonderful valentine display, housed in an antique glass fronted case.
I found hearts in places other than the display case. Aren't these swans sweet?
A drawer full of pretty napkins.
A booth full of vintage baby dolls...30 percent off !
A pretty lamp in one of my favorite colors......PINK !
Some pink cross stitched pillowcases and one embroidered with flowers...oh, and another heart.
Beautiful chenille items filled this booth.
A very lovely young lady wearing a beautiful gown and roses in her hair.
I really loved this pink vase with dogwood blossoms and wanted to take it home with me but I thought the price was too high since it was slightly cracked. So I left without it. "Sigh"
I spotted one more heart before leaving.
I hope you enjoyed visiting the Franklin Antique Mall. I look forward to posting more about this wonderful little town.
Have a wonderful weekend.
