Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe, also known as a little slice of cluttered Heaven and a Scentsy GIVE AWAY

I sometimes get emails or visitors who will ask where I've gotten a certain piece of something or other in my home.  It's OFTEN from this GREAT little store a couple miles from my home.  Long time Whimages readers will remember that I posted about this treasure trove last year.  It's been awhile, I figured you could use a bit of eye candy from Bob, the proprietor of Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe.  You can spend hours here and not see a fraction of what Bob has.  Everything is packed in like sardines but usually you can ask if he has "blank" and he will!  Even after being there yesterday and then looking at these photos, I still see different little goodies that I hadn't seen while there.  There is SO much to see, so enjoy!  Remember, you can click on the photos to make them larger and if you have any questions don't hesitate to call Bob and tell him Robyn sent you! His number is 410-734-6228     
NOW for the give away!  This is going to be a "where's Waldo" sort of game.  Email me with how many different ROBOTS (pretty popular in little boy rooms) you can spot.  If you are correct, I'll put your name in for a FREE SCENTSY plug in warmer and 2 scent bars including the scent of the month!  My email is  GOOD LUCK!

I love this purple hued bottle!

Vintage iron and a sweet doggie bank (I think that's what it was!)

There are several of these enamel wash basins around the shop.

These antique and repo airplanes would be awesome hanging in a boys room!

I LOVE this green juicer and measuring cup...I also ADORE that silver pedestal to the left and that Jadeite bow in itl!

Bob has many pitchers throughout the store.  This green one would be AWESOME with bunches of daisies in it!

Sweet slim ironstone pitcher.

Shelving at one of the sides of the store.

Shelving. If you look closely there is more of that green depression glass that's so pretty.  You could probably start a collection immediately!

Obviously, I've got a little crush on this green pressed glass pitcher!

Pansy pitcher.

Another pitcher...and the Pillsbury doughboy too!

This shelf is the first place I hit when going to Bobs, I've gotten several cool little goodies here.  Look at those cobalt blue salt and pepper shakers and those very pale blue ones further down.

The store has quite a supply of carnival glass.

I've found several goodies in this stack of plates.  One of my favorites is in my foyer, it's a divided transferware cafeteria plate (there is one at the bottom of this pile) from a restaurant in Baltimore.  Bob calls them "grill plates".

More airplanes to the right.

There is a bunch of this clear glass withthe balls on the end (I don't know what it's called, sorry) all over the store.  Again, instant collection!

Could spend hours poking through those shelves! Hope you took home the green pitcher - I would have found it hard to resist!

I'd love to get lost in that store! So many treasures. If lived that close, I'd probably have to fight the urge to turn in there every day!
