Field Trip Friday

Sometimes I feel the need to take a field trip. Today was one of those days, and I knew right where I wanted to visit.  It's a secret source for me,  a little shop that I usually only go to alone, but today I'm taking along someone special, you.  I always feel transported and inspired when I walk in the door of this sweet little boutique.  You ask where is this place?  I would love to keep it to myself, but her shop is too beautiful not to let others know.  This corner by my hometown deserves to be visited.  So I'm giving up my secrets in hopes you too will go and see for yourself.

Meet Jayne, she owns Chicago Road Antiques!

Don't let the name fool you.  Not located at all in Chicago, but in the quiet town of Edwardsburg Michigan.

I promise soon as you pull up you will be running for the front door.


This darling red building begs to be sought.  I can't really tell you what else is located on this road, since my eyes are always looking for this little place, oh my goodness the windows.  They make me want to press right up to the glass and flattened my nose to get a peek inside.  Let me show you around.

Welcome
Jayne's display work is everywhere!  Yes, windows even in the back of the building!

Come home with me, ironstone pitcher, which one you ask, the little baby one!

Lets go upstairs!  Attention to detail is everywhere!

The balusters are even chippy!  Jayne, can I live here?

How funny, I just noticed my canisters for purchase and my wallet are in this picture!

Treasures are endless!  How does she let them go?

 My gift to the Royal couple.  Don't-cha love the spelling?

Can you tell I love signs?  Blue Ribbon!  Mr. Bob the Builder, if your reading!!!

Vintage Little League Team Photos!  Name of team, "Chicks"!

Here we are back downstairs.  I could look around again and again!

But there is work to be done so I must leave!

Thank you Jayne, have a lovely day playing in your beautiful shop!
Chicago Road Antiques is a place not to be missed, if you live in the area.  I always walk away inspired and delighted.  Not to forget, I always walk away with a new treasure to call my own.  Jayne doesn't have a blog...yet, but she does have web site.  Please drop her an e-mail and say hello from me.  Jayne is as lovely as the shop she owns.  Want to thank each of you for going on my field trip with me.  If you would like to take a trip yourself, Chicago Road Antiques is located in Edwardsburg Mi, on Highway 12.  Jayne's hours are Thursday-Saturday, 11am-4pm.


And as always, I can't thank you enough for stopping by!

  23. I love field trips! Red doors are a must open type of thing. I adore stairs that have writing on them. I think it is super creative! Everything is so perfect! I want to hide out and live there too. Thank you so much for taking us along on your adventure.
