Then we headed up to Fletcher, just past Hendersonville. We shopped at Lulu's Consignment Shop, the Goodwill and in Arden, we went to Serendipity Consignment and Salvation Army Thrift Store. We had a delicious lunch at Iannucci's Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant. I had a wonderful creamy spinach lasagna and salad.
Then we went on into Asheville and we shopped at the Tobacco Barn Antique Mall on Swannanoa River Road. We bought a few things there. So many interesting things!!
I love this old porcelain kitchen sink with double drain boards. Those sinks used to be $20 at junk stores back in the 1980's and now this one is $1,800!
Lot's of unusual light fixtures made from old things. Stan and I got really interested in these ideas so I took a lot of photos for ideas!
I do love mid century and Danish modern wooden furniture. I love their velvety texture and the clean lines.
It was so sad to see this old gravestone being sold. Of course, it could have been one that was replaced with a newer one due to it being in such poor shape. I just hope it was not removed without a replacement!
These humongous machines are old movie theater projectors. There were two of them. This one was the largest one.
This old portable radio also fascinated Stan. It had old vacuum tubes. The U-shaped antennae and old earphones were still there. It had an old canvas strap so it could "be taken anywhere". What a difference between that technology and today's!
We had such a good time together and he was in a good mood. Anywhere I wanted to stop, he stopped and enjoyed with me. These days make memories! I suffered a lot of pain from my legs, feet and lower back from all the walking, even though it was meandering walk. But it was worth it to enjoy the day with him. We next went to Regeneration Station Thrift Store on Glendalyn Ave. It was more antique mall than thrift store but they had some interesting things too.
I have no idea what this machine was. It had a place for old vacuum tubes and had lots of dials on the front. Stan said it was probably a speaker?
