Antiquing in Colborne

Tell me....  Do you ever get tired of antiquing?????

Not me!    No way!   No How!  Notta!!

While out touring again in the 49 p/u we stumbled across this antique barn.

Right next to the Trans Canada Hwy.   We pulled off  for a coffee break.

Saw the Tim Hortons Sign.....    The truck went into auto pilot and we pulled in.

Well when we were having our coffee I happened to look across the road.


I let out a shriek..... Quick drink your coffee. LOOK!!!!

They all turned at once. 

 Have you lost your mind?    NO NO LOOK!!

So they finally saw ANTIQUES !

We dropped everything and went on a venture.

We were in new territory.  So luckily I had my camera and took a few pics.

Love Toile Trays, but don't collect them .

OMG!! I didn't notice those ironstone cups and saucers, but took the picture of the table.

As well look at the mirror on the floor behind the table.

Note to self ..... Look at it all.... then look again..........

                                 Now I 
have saved the best for last...

silver spoons..  Can you guess what I am going to use
these for?

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your comments.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my post today! I am your newest follower, especially since I need to keep up with my Canadian friends. I NEVER get tired of looking at antiques or old "stuff". It's what I do best, look.... Will check back with you again. Ann

  3. Linda, like you I love buying items which someone else has loved and used before me. They have a history that I will never know about.... but they are always welcomed in to my home with love. Best Wishes Daphne

  4. Even thought we don't shop as often as we have in the past, we have not outgrown our fascination with vintage and antiques.

    You found some absolutely wonderful things!

  5. Great finds! You certainly hit the jackpot. Can't wait to see what you do with these items.


  6. Hey Linda - I was there just a few weeks ago and bought a big silver meat fork! J

  7. No way, who say that we TScapers are tired of antiquing?

    I am loving you finds, Linda. How I wish I could find such pretty vintage here in the city of Stockholm.

    Happy Monday.

    Hugs from rainy Stockholm,

  8. What a great place you found and I'm never too tired to shop :) I'm anxious to see what you will do with those pretty silver spoons! Have a wonderful night and thanks for sharing!


  9. Love that you have a 49 pick up truck. The spoons are wonderful.

  10. Hahaha! Linda, you sound like my mom when we used to be out thrifting and antiquing! You didn't want her behind the wheel if she saw something; turn first and look out for other cars after! Whew . . . needless to say, I took over the driving and she watched for I really miss those fun Saturday mornings! Thanks for the memories.
    You really scored on that sale; my faves are the shell front shelves! I'm a new follower and found you at Metamorphosis Monday! Hope you'll find the time to share your finds over at Frugal Treasures Tuesday!

  11. No matter where we go, I'm on the lookout for the "A" (Antiques) word!! My husband is very sweet to indulge me. Looks like a great place you had to explore, and the spoons are just lovely.
    Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments!
