A Rhinebeck, NY Junk Lovers Destination

The Country Living Fair was great,
but on the ride home...

We ran across Bottle Shop Antiques in Washington Hollow, NY

The outside was interesting... kind of a tangled mess of rusty things

I didn't know where to look first!

And then I went inside... 

You could easily go in and never come out!

If you can't find it here... it wasn't made.

And everything is so organized!

I really wanted one of everything... but then my house would look like... well... this place!

The prices were not too bad, I bought a scale, a drawer, 
and a very old mercury thermometer.

I had my eye on that ladder too but it was 
twice as long as my car... problem!

It was a very cool place, I already want to go back!

  10. OOPS! I just realized how old this entry is....that ladder is probably living the good life somewhere else by now. Sorry!
