Riverfront Antique Mall: Meeting Distressed Donna Down Home

What a day of pickin'!

You know me, I got lost took the scenic route again,
with the help of Google.

I'm headed to Riverfront Antique Mall 
in North Augusta, SC, 
home of the famous blogger

I called Olive at 
who lives across the river somewhere close-by.


 How was she to know?

"Where are you?  What do you see?"
She knew exactly where I was.

I was going in circles.  
Go Figure!

Olive said, "Look for Aisle B."

And there she was!

My first meeting with a real-life blogger!
I was so excited I didn't get any photos of Donna's booth
but I did buy some things. 
She's my kind of gal.  She even had two baskets of FREEBIES.

I'll share my findings later. 
They are still packed in the trunk.
I do mean packed! 

I asked the owner, 
"Can I take pictures?"

"Uhhhh.  Not sure."


I shot these before I met Donna. 

The above display was the first thing I saw when I walked in.  
What an impression!

Shabby and Chic
Pretty in Pink

Rusty and Crusty
Linen and Lace
you will find at Riverfront.

A rusty, crusty plant stand, 

Is this not the cutest?

Crates and wooden boxes,
Painted furniture and chalkboards
were everywhere.

This was another darling booth.  
I was shopping for resale 
so I had to pretend these were NFS.  

Several things in here were 
"For Display Only."
After all, 
presentation is everything. 

Well, for some. 
Honestly, I prefer a good dig. 

I didn't check the price.  
I can't believe I passed this by. 
This would have been perfect in my milkglass room. 

Distressed and framed scrapbook paper.  
What a grand idea!

I left with a trunk full of goodies and some good ideas!

This will not be my last trip to Riverfront.



I'll be sharing my finds on my next posts.
