Aunt Tiques and Uncle Junk

A few weeks ago I was send some info on facebook about an antique/junk store that is only about 20 minutes away from me.

I've had a bad cold for the past few days and have been feeling like I just needed to get out of the house (heated seats don't hurt either!"  So we did a quick run down to Aunt Tiques and Uncle Junk in Thomson, GA.

For any of you familiar with Tonya Rucucci (Unrully Quilter)....this is her type of place.  Lots of southern folk and outsider art.  This includes utensil sculptures, bottle trees, and chicken paintings.

There were a few quilts and I was tempted by a circa 1900 bowtie quilt but condition was against it...though as a folded piece it is nice.  I did bring home a little red drop leaf end table
perfect for next to my quilting chair!  There were also several nice pie chests...would be good for storing quilts...

May need to do another trip when I am feeling better...

that IS a fabulous place! I think you need to get a pie safe to keep your pies safe from Dobby!

Hope you are all better very soon! A road trip to a cool shop like that has to be a spirit-lifter... not to mention the lovely daffodils!

So pretty the daffodils!

Sounds like a fun outing. Great way to spend the day. :) Be well my friend.

Looks like my kind of place, but a little out of day trip range. :( Are those your daffodils? So pretty. Only snow here. Get well soon!

Ooo, I LOVE that little whirligig thingy made out of the silverware. I would've snagged that in a heartbeat (depending on the price tag, of course..LOL).
