Antiquing in Maine

On our fourth day in Maine---we woke up to another cool and beautiful day...
it was in the low 60's---amazing weather for the summer...

With the weather being so darn amazing, we decided it was a perfect day to head out and check out a few of the local antique shops.  

There's something always magical about antiquing on the East Coast--(in my opinion)---you guaranteed to find so many more interesting and beautiful historic pieces. When Jody and I lived in Virginia---it was one of our favorite things to do on Saturdays---hit the antique stores and see what cool piece we could find. As you can imagine, since this part of the country is so rich with history--you're able to find more authentic and older pieces of furniture and home decor items than in other parts of the U.S. 

Antiquing in Maine felt very similar to when we'd go in Virginia---it has some great antique stores--and surprisingly--things were fairly reasonable and priced to sell.  Once we started looking around--Jody and I both were a little sick that we didn't have our truck and trailer. If we had---we would have definitely come back to Texas with some new purchases in tow. :-)

Here is just an assortment of different photos I took while we were out and about antiquing...

 We had a fun day of antiquing and little Taylor---man, she was amazing--
she loved every minute of it-- I think we may have her hooked
already on antiquing!
