The Barn Collective

I went out "antiquing" with my sister yesterday. It's really just a day spent together because I didn't buy anything, at least not anything much.

Our first stop was the Ontario Antique Mall in Canandaigua, NY. We wandered the aisles, took in the sights, and came upon a stack of bear masks. Of course I had to try one on. She laughed and took my picture, and then we decided to take a selfie of the two of us.

After spending who knows how long wending our way through items of yesteryear, we headed south through the city of Canandaigua and deep into Finger Lake Country. Destination, Wild Goose Chase Antiques, Pulteney, NY on the hill above Keuka Lake. (We hadn't brought our directions so it was a bit of a "wild goose chase" just finding it, but I remembered how to get there.)

This little place will be closed once November is upon us, so we got there just in time. Didn't purchase a thing, but had a drink of sweet cider and half a fried cake offered us by the proprietor. This is probably my favorite antique shop to wander. Atmosphere is everything and so I keep going back every now and again.

And there you have it. More barns over at Toms place.

  1. You should have bought those masks to scare the kids coming to your door for trick or treat!
    Have a wonderful day!

    1. It is pretty wonderful. And if you are into wine tasting or pottery, there are plenty of places to take that in too.

    1. She has become a best friend to me these past few years and we always have fun together. One of these days we'll get our other sister in on the fun too.
      Just love this little barn!

    1. There is no place quite like the Finger Lakes, and Angelica will always be a sweet spot for me. Did you buy any of that delicious salt rising bread?

  7. I'd zoom in to see the price tag, but I cannot quite make it out.
