SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY....FINALLY!!! Photos of Ye Old Curiosity Shop!

****If you like what you see here, then click on the older posts at the bottom of this one...THERE are SEVERAL OTHER POSTS IN A ROW THE TONS OF PHOTOS of the INSIDE!
EDIT: If you are visiting from THE LETTERED COTTAGE, please know that there are actually 3 posts of photo goodness so at the bottom of this post, click "older post".  Believe me you won't be sorry.  This place is FABULOUS!!!

CLICK any photo to make it LARGER! ;-) 
When I went by today (I HAD to get out of the house and get my Commander serviced and this place is on the way) I finally took photos of the antique store I'm always talking about. I told Bob I'd be posting these photos and he said to make sure I tell you all that "It's a REAL antique store with tiny little mouse footprints in the dust". That cracks me up! Anyway I know you'll have to really scour these photos to see even a small fraction of what Bob has. CLICK on the photo to make it larger. Bob does ship and you can call him to get a quote on something. He's always been very fairly priced for me. He's ADMITEDLY a WEE bit crotchedy and gruff but he has a good heart! Plus he knows his STUFF. I always get a history lesson everytime I go. His phone number is 410-734-6228 and please tell him Robyn sent you!  I AM SO VERY excited to share this with you for SHOW AND TELL over at My Romantic Home!  I know it's a couple hours early but I couldn't wait to share all this ABSOLUTE GOODNESS!  So please check all this stuff out, feel free to call Bob (I swear I get nothing from this, I just hate to see small places like this struggling when he has soooo much to offer!) and then go back to  My Romantic Home and CHECK OUT everyone's show and tell goodies! Here's the link : Cindy's Show and Tell at My Romantic Home!

I'm ALWAYS restraining myself in this place because you could spend SO much time here looking and never see a fraction.   I always see something new!  I have even scoured these photos too!   PLUS he has a basement full of goodies, so I'll ask him if he has a particular something and he often has it in the secret hideyhole basement!   I've been saving my "lunch money" for a SWEET COP TOP pint milk bottle.  When I got it out to the car I realized it's PINK!   I haven't seen ANY Cop Tops (supposed to hold the cream in the milk) that are PINK.   OHHH I LOVE THAT!

If you look carefully, in the first photo, there are two VERY nice condition wood and glass wash boards that would be delightful in a laundry room with a fun paint color showing through!

Mmm, I could spend hours in here. In fact, I'd probably need to bring a picnic so I could take a break half way through.
