My sweet crafty mother has been telling me about this little shop by her house in South Jersey and how the lady is now going out of business.   Everything is now 50% off, so while visiting my mother on Wednesday I decided I would stop in and see what this shop had to offer.

It was a quaint shop filled with little vignettes and treasures.  Some good antique finds and some new hand-mades.   A true great mix of a good stuff in a shop, sad that it is closing but great deals to be found.

I started browsing with my mom, we talked a little bit with the shop owner about Etsy and I told her she could probably have a thriving online business on Etsy with whatever she has left over after the closing.

So here is what I came home with yesterday, and needless to say that Im thrilled with all of my finds, truly good stuff!

This is my take home stash

They are clay Halloween ornaments....so sweet.

I adore these canisters and they are so heavy.  

This lovely collection is for my peacock tree, how amazing that I found these colors in a rubbermaid tub of Christmas ornaments that were red,green,white,gold.

The owner truly listened when I told her I was doing a peacock tree this year and she came out of her flower shop section with this box of feathered friends!   IM IN LOVE..

These are snow men clay ornaments and they are so sweet.  I might list some in my shop for the holidays!  

Another Ball jar for my collection.  I now have 2 blue & 2 clear in tall / short sizes. 

That is my installment of Friday Finds and I'd say I found some good stuff.  I already have a list of things that I saw but didn't get....they will probably be in next weeks post!
