I have had my sister visiting the past few days and today with dd#1 settled at college and the other kids occupied for the day we went to the town of Pittsboro, North Carolina for some antiquing. It's only 25 minutes away and although I've driven through it I've never stopped until today.
It's a quintessential southern town, complete with:
old time soda fountain (we have a couple of them around this area)
Courthouse with a clock tower and bell that chimes out a medley of southern tunes
and of course a memorial to the Confederate Army Soldiers
Our first stop was at an antique store - 3 floors but most notable was this back room filled with linens, buttons, patterns. It was so much I couldn't take it all in.
Look at this old washing machine
More tomorrow and yes there is fabric involved!
