The other day I told you about our day trip to Grandfather Mountain and the quaint little town of Blowing Rock.We spent several hours Going to Grandfather Mountain and arrived in Blowing Rock about 4 o'clock. I wish we had left a little earlier in the day because most of the shops closed at 5. An hour was definitely not enough time to see all of the wonderful antique shops in town. I really wanted to go into this shop, but they were closing up :(
Several years ago I went to a great shop in Blowing Rock and had purchased these cute ceramic birdies. I have been trying to find some like them in the past 6 months that didn't cost too much, but I never found any.
Here are the birds in my garden.
Oh, they are so cute.
We were really trying to hurry when I found the shop we were looking for. It is called The Brass Exchange. They also have one in Charlotte, which I am planning on going to visit tomorrow!
I think this red hutch and the bird cage are fabulous!
Here's what the inside of the store looks like. There are 2 floors. They were closing in 20 minutes. So sad :(
Well, my daughter and I did some speed shopping. No leisurely browsing and no "oh mom, look at this". It took a little of the fun out of it, but here are a few things I bought:
I found the same birds with a ceramic finish on them. They were $5.99 each.
I also found this little bird cage for $13.99.
It was the perfect companion to the ceramic bird I found at HomeGoods last week for $6.99
I found a small terrarium for my daughter for her bedroom and another little birdie that I will show you later.
This shop had the most interesting lanterns. I wanted them all, but you know our goal is to downsize in the next few months! They were fabulous though!
Now that I am looking at the photo of the little birdcage, I think it needs a little green moss inside of it. I guess I will take a walk out to my woods and find some ... hopefully the mosquitoes won't eat me alive!
Hope you all have a great day!
