Trophy Antiques

Come with me for a stop
into one of my favorite
downtown Charleston
This blue and white china collection
always catches my eye!!
 The whole table cries out to me,
"Take me home!  Take me home!"

Here's a little more blue peaking
out of this beautiful cabinet.
Beautiful treasures abound at this
antique store.  The owner has a special
flair for arranging each piece into
gorgeous vignettes.
This pretty doll caught my eye. 
Her dress is absolutely stunning!
Look at the detail of the crochet on the leggings
and the ribbon-worked shoes.
This hand-painted lamp also talks to me
at every visit.
"I belong with you."
(It really does say that!)
Here's just one Christmas vignette.

What an elegant Christmas table setting!
After every visit, I have a huge smile on my face.
If you live near the Charleston area,
be sure to make time for a visit.
For friends far away,

I hope you have a similar shop
that delights just as much as!
Merry Christmas!

I thought I'd end with a picture of
my son in this shop!
His sister called him to come see an item in
the back of the store.  He was so concerned
with breaking something that
this was how he walked down
the store aisle!


  1. OK, I love the shop, but the careful son picture is just the icing on the cake. :)

  2. Poor little guy! He was raised right though :)
