Antiques in Hyde Park

I love to go shopping for antiques in our historic Hyde Park shopping District. Blue Moon Antiques is one of my favorite shops. Such a lovely old Victorian home. Want to come inside with me??

Here is a sweet little wash stand. I'd love to take it home!

Some lovely whites.

Love the blue and white set!

Janice always has beautiful linens. I have purchased several tea towels and bridge sets here.

Some sweet vintage quilts.

Here's a barkcloth pillow. I just did a post about my barkcloth bag yesterday.

Bits and pieces of loveliness.

I am so fond of vintage cards. Are you?

Boxes of crochet trim.

Look at this adorable vintage Raggedy Ann game ...

And these little blocks ...

And a sweet little hand made dress. Well, that's the end of our visit. Thank you for coming along with me and I hope that you all enjoyed yourself today. We'll have to make a date to go shopping again soon! In the meantime, be sure to stop by Cindy's Romantic Home for Show and Tell.

I'm sorry that I left you at home Bentley, but I know how bored you get when we go shopping. What if we take a walk together right now? Would you like that??? Do you forgive me for leaving you behind??? Of course you do!!!

  9. Oh I love antique shopping. I really should get out while the weather is still beautiful! Those quilts are beautiful...oh and the china! Thank you for taking us along Susan. Oh I'm sure Bentley has completely forgotten that you didn't take him because he will be so glad to see you when you coem home! Lol! The one time I locked Quincy in the garage most of the night (by accident) he acted as though I had "saved him" he was so darn happy to see me. We'll keep it our little secret that it was my fault. Lol!!

  10. Oh what you missed Bentley. You really need to talk with Shadow. Ever since he was a puppy he has gone to antique places with us. The first time we a little line following us cause when we stopped to look he'd sit and look too. They all thought he was trained. LoL...we said he was a reincarnated antiquer stuck in a puppys fur. He still loves it.

  11. Lovely store Susan I really enjoyed that!

    I know how Bentley feels Sam hates it when i take him shopping!
    Have a great weekend!
