ChiPPy-ShaBBy *Out & About In-The-SOUTH*...


Prompted by an Antique Bottle Show
 in Chattanooga, TN -
Frog Husband & I spent the last week doing a *Blurrrrr-Tour* "Of-The-South"
-which included parts of Georgia, North & South Carolina, & Tennessee...



 We *PIGGED-OUT* on some regional BBQ
 at a Fun and Funky Restaurant just a few miles outside
of  Asheville, North Carolina's UpScale Downtown Area...
**LUELLA'S BAR-B-QUE**



We saw a good number of ANTIQUE STORE SIGNS, but most of the
shops we stopped at were what I call **BROWN-OUTS**  ~
 Along with being full of NOT the good kind of Junk!!!

Knowing that our main focus WAS NOT ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPing, & the fact that we flew-in,  - DID NOT STOP ME when I found 2-Killer Pieces at SHABBY SHACK -that I had to have!!!
We found a Bottle Collector at the Show, who is hauling them home for me!!! ~ Can't Wait!*!*!

 

These pics were the ONLY  Quality ChiPPy-SHaBBy Pieces
I might have considered purchasing on our entire trip... 
Sad to say, - The areas we just "happened upon by chance"
just didn't have any ViNtaGe ChiPPy-WHiTeS to speak of...
******
 I JUST KNOW THERE IS SOME BLOGGER OUT THERE ~
THAT'S GOING TO TELL ME ABOUT THE
 BEST-EVER SHABBY SHOP I MISSED - ONLY A FEW MILES
 FROM WHERE I MIGHT HAVE BEEN?!?!?


I LoVed Downtown CHATANOOGA, Tennessee, -where the Antique Bottle Show was held!*!*!  Just an AwEsoMe City for WALKING - and did we ever do just that!!!
  FaB Restaurants as well!*!*!   Cooking hot temperatures teetering around 100 degrees - OMG!!!
I Highly Recommend Downtown Chattanooga's FARMER'S MARKET,
Held on Sundays...  I had the BeSt Time Shopping there!!!  
AwEsoMe  Food Choices - Especially the BBQ Pork!!!
Netted some Delicious Peaches & this "Handmade" Seagrass Tote
which will definitely go to some good use!!!

ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPers!*!*!

Friday Afternoon's WEEKEND WEATHER PREDICTION
 looked beyond fabulous for this PAST SaTurDay's Sale!!!
  With just a 1percent chance of rain, and low wind levels, I made the decision to *Set-Up* in my favorite spot, ~ on the crest of our driveway by the *RoadSide*...

By 7am Saturday Morning, I was completely set-up
 with all the final touches...
  I sent "Frog-Husband" out & about to put up the SaLe Signs around Town... I was just about ready to start taking some pics - when 2 runners came up to me and showed me their phone ~ OMG!!!  
In the next 10 minutes the weather was going to take a SEVERE TURN!!! ~ YOU could see it coming in the sky to the SouthWest...  The wind was picking up... I crazily went to work on covering my electric chandeliers, laying items down, and sandwiching furniture from the front lawn area - under my two tents...  

THE STORM CAME ~ But so did my ChiPPy-SHaBBy Customers!!!!!!
Needless to say, very few early morning pictures were taken...
Soooo many FaB SHaBBies got away before I was able to 
take pics!!! 

This PAST Friday Afternoon... 


 I LoVe Setting-Up by the light of the CHanDeLieRs...



 Come 9am,  - the wind and rain lessened up a bit, 
staying dry till 2:30, - when we ONCE AGAIN
got hit with stormy conditions...



 A few items on-the-lawn-area...
