**More ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! UpDates on the Madison WI Shabby ShoPPing**

The Burkhardt's REALLY PACKED-IT-IN!!!  Late in the day on Saturday, we ventured out-of-the-area - to Evansville,  with hopes of shopping Windmill Antiques. Arriving at 4:25 p.m.,their sign read CLOSED...   The lady at the check-out was kind enough to give us "a 10 minute, blink-of-the-eye viewing"...  Shortly after, petal to the metal, we headed to our last stop,  ~ STOUGHTON ANTIQUE MALL with 35 minutes of shopping time to spare...

  I love shopping this "girlie" mall of sort...  I almost always come away with a SHaBBy Find!*!*!


The outside of the building is just amazing!!!


Love the seasonal adornment...


Side of building next to the parking lot...




"On-The-Hunt" at another Antique Mall, - This little vignette just drew my eye...  LoVed EVERYTHING in it!*!*!  I definitely would have bought the tray ~ but it just wasn't "shabby enough"...


Just FaB CHiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPing Spree!*!*!   I had such a fun day!!! Great Food... SHaBBy Finds... and did I mention a 20 minute stop at Anthropologie ~ AwEsoMe Display at this Madison location...


Thanks sooooo much for all your input regarding  THE SLED...  I'll be calling the Store today...  Hope it's still there...  You know the old saying:  "When you see an antique" - BUY IT -

  2. Wow, you really covered some ground getting to Evansville. Glad you got to take a peek around Windmill; I would love to have a building like theirs!

    You certainly has loads of success. Can't wait to hear the end of the sled story. :)
