Shops ~ Plymouth Wisconsin...

I had the day off from work on Thursday... I spent the morning at a friends house watching a 6-part series (Sundance channel) she recorded for me ~ "Man Shops Globe" - Keith Johnson - buyer at large for Anthropologie Stores... The first one in France was my favorite!!! After lunch Jeff accompanied me for an afternoon outing of antique shopping in PLYMOUTH, WI ~ about 25 miles north of us... (click on pics to enlarge... Click on comments to leave feedback...)



First Shop we hit was the RED ROOSTER...




Red Rooster is a mix of old and new...
Everything is displayed... Linda does a great job! I've bought many an antique from her store over the years... I enjoy going to the seasonal store "open house" events...








The Red Rooster's HoLiDaY Open House was last week...
Unfortunately I was unable to attend... What chippy finds did I miss in those first few minutes???






Jeff saw the "concrete" planter... Without lifting a finger - his back started aching... He remembers the year I was concrete/cement CrAzY!*!*!
Upon closer inspection ~ the planter was a re-pro, exceptionally done ~ being light as a feather was the give-away... No, it did not go home with me, sorry Julie... I'm a purist snob...




More and more I'm running into customers of mine!*!*! Donna lives in Green Bay & drives down to Cedarburg for the Maxwell Street Flea Market, where I have a booth... I remembered her buying a metal garden table from me last May & she also watches my Ebay Listings in the Winter Season...




The other "girl shop" in Plymouth is "Fibber McGee's Closet" ~ although maybe it's name is changing??? - I saw some wording on the front window saying "Countryside"???? I've bought from Katherine for years!*!*!





ChiPPy Cupboard at Fibber McGees...





I love just about anything with birds...





Unfortunately I did not come home with a thing from the Red Rooster or Fibber McGee's ~ most likely due to the Holiday Open House just a week ago... However, I did come home with a few trinkets from a couple other shops down the road... The swagged wall shelf is just adorable - perfect for a perfume display... The mini urn adornment will tuck nicely in a shadow box... I just LOVE the old celluloid lamp finial - it will go PeRfeCtly with the shabby lamp I also found!*!*! These delights will be available at our MAY 22nd BARN SaLe 2010... Mark your calendar!!! I'll update my blog as it gets closer... and of course you'll get our usual mailing piece...




Plymouth has a lot of old architecture...




Jeff and I enjoyed a mid-afternoon cup of coffee ~ then went for a walk... We saw lots of interesting things off the main drag...
