**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Shops BOWERBIRD & friends ~ Peterborough, NH**

More on our recent "Fall Trip" Out East!*!*!  Bowerbird & friends is my most favorite store to visit besides Anthropologie!!!  Kathy, the owner has such an eye for both buying and display...  It's rare that you come across a store "So Fab" these days...  The Shop was sooooo in tune with the "hot industrial look" ~ shabby-chic ~ architectural salvage ~ vintage garden, & select new finds mixed in...  The building's structure enhances these items, creating an inviting warm atmosphere that makes you want to pull out your pocket book!!!   I was a bit disappointed that Kathy was not at the shop that day - we had such a great time chatting with her last year...  See for yourself how AwEsoMe this Store looks!*!*! Bowerbird & friends is located across from Red Chair Antiques, in the Depot Square area of Peterborough, New Hampshire...  A picturesque river runs behind Kathy's store...

 It was just pouring when we arrived at
Bowerbird & friends...  Does this look inviting or what!*!*!



The Shop was "just packed" with FaBuLouS Finds...



I just LoVed these 2 Industrial Pieces!*!*!  Not to mention the great idea of turning the filing drawers "side-ways" for display!!!



My husband spotted the container of bottles on this "Just FaB" Industrial Side Table...  What a nice smaller size with wheels...  GREAT LOOK!*!*!








"My Frog Husband" with a vintage fishing bucket...  It had an unusual label on it...



Is this a FaB Idea or What!?!?!  The Architectural Railing turned into a plant holder at the top edge...
