The BEST Little Antiques Sale Anywhere!

Today my mom and I went to Scotland Yards Antiques in the Yard and the Great Pillowcase Sale. It is by far the BEST little antiques sale anywhere! Features a small, hand selected group of antique boutiques, beautifully nestled in and around Scotland Yards Greenhouses.

The event is to raise money for the Edinboro Historical Society. This years theme is pillowcases. The historical society makes colorful pillowcases to sell. What isn't taken home by enthusiastic shoppers is donated to the food pantry to include in their Christmas baskets.

You would think that the first thing we noticed was all this gorgeousness around us, but the crowing of roosters distracted us. Those little guys were having a good old time running around potted plants, shrubs, and even cars!

They have a beautiful gift barn with unusual garden art.

Gorgeous architectural art on the inside of the barn.

Cute elf and fairy garden statues were nestled all over the yards.

So many flowers that I not familiar with. I know the name of this one starts with "holly" but the rest of it I can't remember. Wouldn't you think I would? But hey, I got the "holly" part!

I loved the deep purple of the leaves on this cheerful flower. Again, I don't remember the name! But I was excited to get to the antiques!

I am old enough to remember how cool these bikes were! To have a red, white, and blue one must have been extra cool!

More pretty flowers in the greenhouse.

Confetti-like hollyhocks ~ in pink!

This little kitty was the official greeter at the antiques section. I think she took her job very seriously but did take ear-scratching breaks.

This old fluffy dog did nothing but just lay around. She's move from one side of the path to the other (on stones no less) and enjoyed lots of love from the customers, but get up and do anything...nope not her!

Where to start, where to start??

The historical societies pillowcases were hung like colorful flags everywhere. And Poochie still didn't more.

And now my very favorite Shabby Chic booth!

Loving all this pinkness! How about the pink taffy too?

Love this vintage rose bathing cap. (Thinking of you Becky P.!) But I can't imagine pulling it over my hair. OUCH!

It's hard to believe but this wonderful greenhouse is so close to home yet I was completely unaware of it until I heard about the Antiques in the Yard. I look forward to shopping there in the future. You know I have to go back and visit that little kitty!
