A few weeks I told you about a trip to the  strawberry fields in Portland and then a fun stop over in closeby Cross Plains.  By the way,  Saturday is the last day for picking strawberries which I raved about the strawberry picking here .I double raved about Thomas Drugs  in Cross Plains, Tennessee and their original 1930’s soda fountain here.

Then I walked next door in Cross Plains and I was charmed all over again at the Historic Corner House Antiques. They have a little bit of everything, scattered throughout several rooms in a quaint old house. Everything is displayed with care and charm from beautiful white  pottery to the modern jewelry with a lot of unique items in between, including gourmet food and privately licensed bath products called Farm Chicks.

Soaps and old fashioned scale.

I purchased the Farm Chicks rosemary lime bubble bath  and now I wish I bought the shea butter too. Other favorites I want to try include grapefruit and apricot.

Does anyone recognize the Mrs. Beasley doll from the television show Family Affair?

I love everything white, one of my favorite colors.

Books adorning a staircase, part of the merchandising charm of the store.

One Saturday a month, the owner cooks some of the gourmet food and hosts an open house with samples.

Special Announcement: If you love yard sales as much as I do, the community Trash to Treasures has been taking place for 26 years. That means people are planning all year to participate. I found this flyer inside the Corner Store and I’ve marked my calendar. The last time I went to a small town community yard sale, I left with a solid wood, mid century end table for $10.
