Our Trip to Then & Now Antiques in Petoskey

Dan loaded the little trailer with 10 or his most wonderful creations, wrapped them all up and strapped them all down and away we went ( Dan, Scout our Britney & CJ ) to Petoskey to Then & now Antiques.
Along the way we found this most adorable nursery and bakery. We picked up a rhubarb pie with a nod to Joe and Sandy of Rhubarb Reign! Dan said "I think there is a rhubarb pie in my future!" & wow was it good. We shared it with Mom & Dad on their deck later that evening, experiencing a cool welcome breeze only like what you experience in Northern Michigan.                      
We were welcomed with delight by Tracy and Cindy at Then and Now Antiques.
With all of the pieces unloaded and all of us watered :> Thank you again Cindy for taking Scout for a romp - which she loved! Tracy took Dan around to her salvage stash pile to share some treasures, how sweet was that!
This shop is ready for the holiday weekend and SUMMER! take a look...........
This shop is loaded with great finds and we are so pleased to now be apart of that too.
And a special thank you to Tracy for sharing some of her vintage fabric stash with me too.
On the way over to Boyne City to Mom & Dads we drove by one of my old most favorite antique shops that is no more, but so totally inspired me over the years. "Glorie Be". This place held the magic for me. It is also a flower farm so the porch was always loaded with fresh cut or potted flowers along with antiques. Such a favorite combinations.
It was a fun trip, the pie was great, we enjoyed all of the sights (people on the beach already!), sounds, smells and hospitality of good people.
