Part II... ** ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPing In-The-South **

As we headed to Memphis, we really packed it in on Day II...

 
 After many disappointing Antique Store Stops, "we finally hit on a FaBuLouS one"!*!*!
the Red Door Antiques, in Eddyville, Kentucky...
The outside was soooo inviting!!!  I had to have this architectural column that turned out to be filled with "old wasp's nests"!!!  The shop owner was nice enough to help us "clear the column of this mess"...



 This vignette was sooooo inviting when you walked in the door...



 There wasn't much around for restaurants in the area ~ and we were hungry...  This "no frills restaurant" served THE BEST BBQ I've ever had!*!*!  



 This area of the country is known for BBQ...
 Knoth's "Smoke House" was located out back of the restaurant...  It yielded the most tender & tasty pork sandwich I've ever had!!! ~ Not to mention, the most unusual and tasty BBQ Sauce - 10+++ YUM!*!*!

 Getting closer to Memphis, this was our last Antique Stop... 
 Antiquing wasn't the best on this trip ~ and This was the only other shop that I netted a few select ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Finds...



We finally made it to Memphis - where the Bottle Show was being held...  
The Famous "BEALE STREET" 
NEON... MUSIC... FOOD...



We had BBQ Ribs at this corner  "Blues City Cafe"...



 The inside of the Blues City Cafe was "just hopping"...
  Fun & Funky!*!*!




 We did so much walking in Memphis...
 When your feet got tired - carriages were available... This particular one was loaded with "Bling"...



 I just loved ALL THE OUTDOOR CAFES!!!  We ate here one evening...



We set-up & sold at the Bottle Show... ~ Made a 12 hour drive back to Wisconsin - STRAIGHT THROUGH...


Yesterday, Frog Husband "uncovered" the old wicker casing on this demijohn bottle...  YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU MIGHT FIND...

*** I'll be posting some of my SHaBBy Finds ***
Tomorrow...

  2. Hi,
    I check your blog daily and really enjoy your entries. Knoth's BBQ isabsolutely the best there is; sauce to die for. I live in Central Kentucky and it's been awhile since I've been to West KY, but I always go to Knoth's...must go and get BBQ and visit the Red Door....maybe this summer. Thanks so much for the reminder.
