An Outing To The Green Pea Antique Store

P1010083i


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!

I so wish I was already moved and could just enjoy a stroll through the store. Instead of packing, packing, packing!

My goodness, Becky, what great places you have in your environs. If I get to your part of California I know who I'm calling - I'll buy the lunch and wine if you'll be the tour guide!
