Our Treasures from Pennsylvania..... (picture heavy!)



 I shared about our trip to visit the Amish.... It was a beautiful adventure! The whole Western PA. was so beautiful and green. When we entered  Volant, we found two antique malls and stopped in to find some goodies to bring to our antique booth.... This was our favorite, it is called  The Schoolhouse Shops..... it is a store built in an old schoolhouse, thus the transom windows! They had wonderful goods, fair prices and a really nice owner! If you ever get to that end of the US, you won't be dissappointed!



 Here are a couple more pics of buildings we saw in Volant... an old schoolhouse....
 And a cute little church structure.....

 And here are our treasures that we brought back... an old Tonka pickup, 2 pitchers from Oil City, Pa, a doctor's baby scale, a hobnail bottle, a beautiful tin, some clippies that were used in a store at one time, and a floral hat  (that's for me, the tin too!)






This was my favorite find...a red cross bandage and plasters cabinet... I was so excited to find this baby!  She needs some cleaning but...pitter pat...she is full of history!



We got 3 camera's total, an old clock, tins, santas and some Victorian images on wood plaques....


How about this awesome luggage/hatbox....I love her!


Here is her insides....

Some orange and black tins for halloween, a black train case and lunchbox and some berry baskets....






The other cameras and a toy tin litho typewriter...






Here is the typewriter close up...so cute! I may save this for xmas time....



And I can't leave out this crusty fisherman's basket....





Well, I hope you enjoyed my finds...I enjoyed shopping for them. Can't wait to get them in the booth! I am sharing this post with Debra at Common Ground for Be Inspired Friday's. Go visit and see all the lovely blogs that join in!
 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!   karen....

Hmmm...I was out in western PA in July, specifically even went to Volant, but didn't see any antique malls. I wonder if there are 2 Volants? Were you any where near Sharon, PA?

OMG those Buildings in Volant with Nature reclaiming them are Divine!!! I have a penchant for Abandoned Buildings and Ruins... there is something about them that just draws me in and captivates me... Derelict Style is to me Ideal. Delighted to have discovered your Blog this afternoon!
