Some Fall Fun Shopping

The weather is amazing here now. It is in the high 70's?! Unheard of around here by the middle of October. I made the best of it by shopping. I hit an estate sale on my lunch on Friday and then on Sunday we kept up a family tradition by going to Gays Mills for Apples. Gays Mills is in a beautiful area of Wisconsin with rolling hills all in their Fall glory and apple orchards everywhere.

We hit our favorite one They have everything you could ever want and more. The apple donuts are to die for and warm from the oven....

On the way through the city of Gays Mills we noticed a green house/floral shop advertising vintage and antiques. Sooo of course after our apple adventure we popped on in. SCORE! It was a space that was using the green houses for antique mall space after the growing season was over. So smart.

It was down and dirty but treasures everywhere. Here are a couple of pictures of both of the shopping trips. I am cleaning them up and adding them to my shop for the upcoming Fall Art Tour this weekend.

Hope to see you there or as ever if you see anything here you would like to purchase just pop me a note and we help you out.

You have reminded me of when I was small, my Dad and Mum always went to the local Apple farm to stock up for the winter. The smell as you entered was sweet yet fresh, thank you for sharing

That is a great place! Have to mention that idea of using the greenhouses while out of season to some friends of mine. Brilliant!
Nice finds, love that barn looking type thing in the back of your pics.
