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.
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.
