ABUNDANCE AntiQue Store ~ Hebron, IL ...

I packed soooooo much in last Saturday that I'm STILL talking about it!*!*! Just south of Lake Geneva is a small gem of a town for antiquing ~ HEBRON, ILLINOIS... I always stop there if I take the back roads home from Kane County Flea Market... Although, there are less antique stores than years ago, I almost always come home with a GreAt FiNd!*!*! ***Susan, Owner of "Abundance Antiques"*** has an exceptional store ~ very good quality... Susan's window displays are AwEsoMe!!! ~ she has lots of architectural salvage & unusual chippy white this & that...



Here I am with Susan, the owner... I got to know Susan a little better this past summer when we both did Northwind Perennial Farm's Antique Garden Show this past June...




Sneak peek inside the store...





I LoVe the display behind the counter...
Unfortunately it's NFS - I understand why!!!





Abundance has a second floor... This incredible light fixtures hangs from a high tin ceiling ... If memory serves me right - Susan said they were made from "horse-hair & plaster"... What a time~worn patina!!! I couldn't think of better spot to display them...





Architectural corbels on a chippy white trunk...




I've always loved this charming cottage house in Lake Geneva & have wanted to take a picture of it... It's on the winding road between Hebron & downtown Lake Geneva...





Another Antique Store in Hebron is "Grampy's... This place is a "junker's paradise"!*!*! I don't think there was ever a time I didn't come home with something from here... Usually the window displays are very inviting - but today wasn't one of them... ~ Probably SOLD something exceptional...




This piece ~ was still in the window at Grampy's... On closer inspection, I determined that the silk flower arrangement was "spray-painted" - OMG!*!*! I think I'm going to try that but use several different shades of whites and creams... It definitely had a look to it!*!*!
