Millerton, NY continued...

On Sunday I took to the road to go to the yard sale that Eddie Ross was having.  I wrote about it here, but thought I'd show you what I got there.  There was china, glassware, fabrics, dishes, furniture, books - lots to look at.

Pictured below are my items: a tan scarf, two floral fabric pieces, a white tablecloth, a transferware dish, a sweet cup and pitcher and a pineapple doorknocker.

I've had a great time placing them around my home - and I smile when I see them and know where they are from.

After bidding goodbye to Eddie and Jaithan, I continued into the town of Millerton to look around.
It is a pretty town with a lovely main street that has scenic views,
...and a vintage feel.

It is very easy to walk up and down the street, looking into the shops.

I stopped at Irving Farm to sit and have some lunch.  There food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed and cozy.

I was delighted to find Shandell's, that Eddie had talked about.  It has "things that make you smile" - don't you love that phrase!  I was excited to look inside.

Susan Schneider runs the shop and she greets you {along with her two canine cuties}.  She has gorgeous lampshades and lights, as well as handmade night lights, tissue box covers and matchboxes.  It is a fun place to explore and Susan is great fun to talk to. 

I was delighted to have a beautiful day for a car trip and to see some new places.

Today I was back at home, enjoying the Memorial Day holiday.  I appreciate the freedom that we have in this country and am thankful for the men and women who have made it possible.  I hope you had as an enjoyable weekend as I had!
