PiLoT MoUntAin OuTinG....

I sincerely meant to get back here on Sunday for the rest of the story, but this is the first chance that I've had to this. The past few days have been pretty crazy around the Freshwater's.
But, back to Saturday's adventure. My sister came back for a visit. Yea, 2 visits in 2 weeks!

She brought me these to add to my collection! I love them and I don't have any exactly like these...


I have told her numerous times about the Pilot Mountain Peddlers Store and we decided that was where we needed to go.

So, Laine (my sis), Bailey, her grandaughter and my Cait took off for the mountains. Little did we know that Mayfest was going on and the little town was packed with food vendors, crafters and more. We found a park a few streets over and decided to check out a few booths. It was pretty fabulous and a beautiful day for it. We didn't see all the vendors, but the ones we did check out had some pretty cool prim goodies. We both picked up a few things. We had lunch at a little diner that I can't seem to remember the name. It was pretty good all in all. For some reason, my photograher didn't get any pics of the streets... go figure. BUT, she did get some shots of the best part of all~~~ the Peddler store! Take a look at some of Tammy's ( I think I called her Linda in a previous post, sorry) fabulous goodies for sale...


Really cute tree near the front door........filled with ornies

Great prim shelf with baskets and plates....

This reminded Cait of a grouping I have in my house...

Old and new mixed together for a fabulous prim setting...

Another one of the booths filled with a mixture...

Pilot Mountain Peddlers has been filled with lots and lots of primitive gatherings and you're sure to find something to use in your own home. And Tammy is right there to offer ideas and suggestions. It is well worth the trip and I'll be going back soon! Only next time, I'm taking my list.......there is so much to choose from, it's hard to decide on what to purchase.

After much thought and deliberation, this is what I decided to bring home with me to K-ville!

....a beautiful braided mat, set of sheep salt and pepper shakers, a homespun flower, a greenery bush, cute little pottery pitcher in a burgandy/ gold color, plus a wonderful prim shelf that I'll have to post at a later time.
Thank you so much, Tammy for being so gracious! While we were there I ran into Sherie. The gal that used to own the store. She is super nice and I always enjoy chatting with her. I don't think I will ever forget the first time we met....before I even told her who I was, she knew me!!! It was really quite a meeting!
I have made several attempts to get this posted and after jumping up and down from my computer chair for a couple of hours now ...this is gonna be it. Have a great evening and I'll be back soon with more pics of what I found on my trip to Pilot Mountain.............
Hugs and Blessings,
Shari

Shari, it was great to see you again and meet your family. What a great post you made on your outing to Pilot Mountain and your pictures look great. Love the way you show off your groupings. Can't wait to see more of them. Have a great rest of the week. Sherie
