New England LoDGiNg & Antique ShoPPing ~ ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style...

A welcome incentive to end our eleven hundred mile, one-way, road trip to New Hampshire, was pulling up at the HANCOCK INN  Bed & Breakfast in Hancock, New Hampshire...  What a quaint 17th century New England Town ~ especially in the Fall...

The Front Porch was soooo picturesque...
Rocking chairs... Mums... Pumpkins... 



 Here's my handsome "Frog-Husband"
 - sooo glad to have finally arrived there...
What a welcoming entrance...


Quite a few of the INNS in New England serve dinner...  Such was the case at the HANCOCK INN...
We had one of the BeSt meals ever along with wonderful hosts/accomodations...    




Interesting Fence... 
Lots of architectural details
 could be seen throughout the town...





 Quaint Homes
All different sizes & styles...
Almost all of them were well kept-up ~ No chippy paint here!!!



 One of my FaVoRiTe ShoPPing Places
 is the UpScale Town of 
Peterborough, New Hampshire...  
The town is nested down in a valley...




 As we were driving in, I spotted a New Antique Store that had sprung up since last year...
GROVE & MAIN ANTIQUES




 The outside displays were very inviting...




 Grove Antiques - Peterborough, NH









 Peeking in the front door...




 At FIRST GLANCE, It looked sooooo
 much like RED CHAIR ANTIQUES...
We later came to find out ~ that RED CHAIR M*O*V*E*D out of Peterborough to the Hudson, New York area...  I was soooo disappointed!!! ~ I loved shopping that store ~ and this year's travels were not taking us anywhere near Hudson, NY...




 Lots of Ironstone... 
Lots of Architectural SaLvaGe Mixed-In...








  
***More About the other Peterborough Shops Soon***
