Oh, the places you'll go . . .

. . . er, I mean the places WE WENT!  My daughter and I left a little earlier and stayed a little later on our mini junk jaunt to Minneapolis.  So many cute little shops, so little time (and money).  We took our time, driving into each little town to see if there was something to see.  We stopped at antique shops, decorating stores, (and even a couple of hometown bars!), searching for handmade goodness!  Minnestota ~ you have a wonderful state!

My daughter and I travel well together.  No major meltdowns (except for in Minneapolis traffic) and we both like to stop the car alot for a drink or a snack.  She says I snore, I say I don't!  And I only embarrassed her a few times (unfortunately only 1 time was on purpose!).

I think I'll start to show you a couple of places we went and then move on to what we came home with in later posts (gotta get to that 100th post, ya know!).

The Red Sled in Morton is a tiny shop I have stopped at often!  The owner Becky refinishes furniture that is to die for.  Always wish I had a truck when I'm there.  The store is plum full of creative vignettes and the unusual can always be found.

Her specialty is Halloween with areas chock full of scary but oh-so-cute goblins.  My daughter has many, many pieces for her collection from here and this trip was no exception. 

I have a big wire basket on a light fixture and thought this was a good idea to add to it.  There's a bucket of old insulators somewhere on this farm and I aim to find it!

The next post - The Round Barn Company!  Oh my stars, what a place!

Still unpacking my goodies . . .

PS ~~  come on gals!  only 3 more until 150 followers!  we'll celebrate then!
