Today’s outing will be to the Green Pea, a wonderful antique store owned by my friend Sandi. Sandi and her husband, Jim, lovingly restored the historic building over a three year period. The ambiance of the old building is perfectly suited to showcasing the ever-changing antique furniture and collectibles that are nestled in vignettes throughout the store. A little of new is mixed within the old, such as zinc chalkboards, market baskets, wicker baskets (as shown below) and women’s sweaters, jackets and scarves. Jim and Sandi are master woodworkers and like to reinvent pieces using salvaged wood and wire.
Sandi opened up one side of her shop in July so that other vendor’s can sell their wares. It is always a joy to see what everyone finds and adds to their spaces!
So, come along for a little visit! If ever you are in Escalon, be sure to stop in to meet Sandi and take in the beautiful store in person!! It is a little like stepping back in time!
As you know, Sadie Mae (the traveling friendship bag) and her companions, Toto and Rufus, are making their way around with me to my favorite shopping destinations. Here they are posing for a group shot on the counter….but our shopping days are winding down as they need to make it to Connie’s…so off they go today…a sad farewell, but it has been fun!
