**Alphabet Soup Co.** ~ Milford, New Hampshire...

I netted my Most Favorite Find of the trip @ ALPHABET SOUP CO. ANTIQUES/GIFT STORE in Milford, New Hampshire!!!  I almost always come away with a ViNtaGe SHaBBy Keeper from Marge's Store!*!*!

Marge was in the process of "changing-out" her summer window display...  Look at that 2-die-4 vintage folding chair with awning!!!


Here I am with the owner - "Marge"... Such a darling Lady!!!  Marge has a mix of both old and new in her store... 

Here's the StoRy on the VINTAGE FRENCH WALL CANDELABRA:   We arrived in Milford around 11 a.m.  I have loved this Lady's window displays for as long as I've been visiting...  My hand grabbed the door knob to enter - IT WAS LOCKED!!!  OMG!!! ~ Oh NO!!!  As I pressed my nose against the glass, I SAW IT - the Most FaB ViNtaGe Wall Candelabra Ever!!!  I had to have it!!!  I called the phone number on the door - NO ANSWER...  Soooooo we decided to eat an early lunch a couple doors down....  After lunch I said to Jeff - let's just take "one more peek"...  As we approached Alphabet Soup - I saw a chippy old chair NOW outside on the sidewalk - my heart raced... ~ could she Now Be Open???? - YES!!!!!!!!



 Just FaB!*!*!  This picture does not do it justice...  PeRfeCtly ChiPPy!!!





Marge currently does not have a blog or website - but I encouraged her to start...
