***Kimball & Bean's HoLiDaY OPEN HOUSE***

A little less than 2 weeks ago, I made a trip to "Kimball & Bean" - in the countryside area of Woodstock, Illinois... They specialize in ***Architectural & Garden Antiques***... I have read many an article about them & have also seen their booth at the Chicago Botanic Antique Garden Show...


I never thought I'd find the place ~ let alone find my way back... I drove for miles along many a picturesque winding road" - in a very upscale area, I think was named - "Bull Valley" ... BeAuTiFuL!*!*! I felt like I was in upstate New York...





A view from the parking lot area leading up to the entrance... All - so nicely decorated...





The inside of the Barn/Store Area was "Over-The-Top" ~ The BeSt of ViNtaGe Garden Antiques... Almost everything was PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy!!! Unfortunately just about everything was just "eye-candy" for me... The price tags were well beyond my means...




This ViNtaGe Owl & Bench were 2-die-4!*!*!
The Best of the Best...





I did buy a "Boxwood" Wreath...




All the displays were soooooo professionally done... A lot of European Garden Items...The Space had such a great feel to it... The owners were nice enough to let me take photos...






I loved this ChiPPy Cabinet... The top was old zinc...





This metal finnial was sooooo AmAziNg!*!*!





I'm not going to complain this morning ~ it's early in the season ... HOWEVER....
