As we were meandering along country roads on our way to the next castle, we happened to pass over hither and yon to find a very large red barn in the distance.
On the side was the word "Antique" or Antik, in Swedish. Who's in? I asked. The car was stopped. All car doors flew open and out popped the gang to venture into the "old".
As we walked in Swedish records from the 1940's were playing. It smelled old and it took my eyes a couple of minutes to adjust and then it was as if I was at my grandmother's house.
Old painted chests,oriental carpets, household items,wooden furniture,china,pottery.
Oh....all things I love and that are wonderful. They even had a "modern" vintage room with everything from the 60's and 70's. That's when we found the stairs, which would lead us two more flights up, each floor filled with old antique furniture,bathroom items, and......and......fabric. If I ever move to Sweden I will furnish my house from this barn. Until then,I only bought a couple of items for the Vintage Swap. Why don't you come join us for the global swap meet? It is being wonderfully hosted by Heather from Shivaya Naturals. There are so many fun and creative people participating.
Back tomorrow ..........oh, before I go, anyone up for revamping a swing set? This one needs some help.
