SHaBBy ShoPPing INDIANA-OHIO Weekend!*!*!

OMG!*!*! Did Frog Husband & I ever put on the RoAd MiLeS in just a few short days!*!*!  
  I REALLY can't believe what we packed-in starting out VERY EARLY Thursday Morning and arriving HOME VERY LATE Saturday Nite...

Some SHaBBy-ShoPPing F*I*N*D*S from this
 past weekend's Indiana/Ohio Road Trip...

*** INDIANA***
As we're barreling down the highway in Indiana on Thursday Morning, I see the Exit Sign coming up ~ "Mishawaka"...  I remembered Anita, from the Iowa Junk Gypsies doing a  recent post on the MISHAWAKA ANTIQUE MALL & Joe & Sandy of RHUBARB REIGN - having a booth space in that Mall...  Soooooo - WE STOPPED & FOUND IT!*!*!

Biggest S*U*R*P*R*I*S*E
 We had to wait till it opened - AND when it did - to my surprise, as the owner unlocked the door with a big smile, I was greeted with **IT'S ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! - OMG!*!*!  As it turns out, GLENDA reads my Blog & when she had one - (Junkin In My Pink Cadillac) I read hers!!!  Unfortunately the shop keeps her sooooo busy - so there isn't much time for blogging these days... I would highly recommend stopping at this Antique Store!!!  FaB mix of Architectural SaLVage, SHaBBies, & Industrial to name a few...  AND it's not that far off the interstate...

I bought this PeRfeCTLy ChiPPy... Crusty... Rusty... White Metal Garden Table from Joyce's Booth in the Mishawaka Mall...    I sooooo would have loved meeting Joyce ~ her booth being filled with lots of "ChiPPy FiNdS"...

I'll be posting MORE about our *Whirl-Wind* Weekend...



  1. You sure know where to go to find the yummy stuff!

  2. Wow, I was just there two weeks ago!!! However, I took the train to South Bend so was limited as to what I could buy - my suitcase was tagged "heavy" when I came back! Lots of fab shops in that area and well worth the trip.

  3. One of my favorite places and only 45 minutes from my house!

  4. Jeanine,I can't tell you how exciting it was for me to look up and see Chippy Shabby standing at the front door of Mishawaka Antiques. It was truly the highlight of my day, actually several days. Thanks so much for stopping by, and if your ever in the area again let me know first I'll make sure I'm on time!!! :) One more thing, you are as kind and adorable in person, as on your blog.

    1. Thank YOU Glenda for ALL your kind words!!! It was my pleasure to MEET YOU ~ and YOU made my Day Too!*!*!

  5. I don't know how you do it! God bless you!
    Girl, you must be exhausted by now. Give me some of that energy PLEASE!!
    Thinking of you :)
    xxx Liz
    When are you coming to NY???

  6. Oh what fun! Was hoping to catch up with you at Elkhorn this weekend but I see that you will be VERY busy. I'm sure it will be another fab sale for you!


  7. Jeanine, I am SO sorry to have missed you when you stopped by Mishawaka Antiques!! I SO LOVE your style! Thanks for buying the little chippy metal garden table from my booth! I LOVE that "aged" look as you do and all things garden! http://vintagegardengirl.blogspot.com/

  8. Wasn't it AWESOME? I move my daughter to St Mary's on Aug 15th and I bet I will be there a couple times that week for some "therapy" as i ready myself to leave my baby girl behind....
