Come join me as three friends and I go antiquing in Clarksville, TN at Miss Lucille's Marketplace.
Miss Lucille's has over 200 vendors and 5,200 sq. feet and we didn't miss a single booth. Most pics were taken by me, but I borrowed a few from Miss Lucille.
Eating at the Cafe
We had planned to eat at Miss Lucille's Cafe and were all starving after our drive and couldn't wait to see the menu.
We ordered at the counter.
The cafe was decorated in a rustic style with a wall full of antique shutters.
The menu did not disappoint, our group ordered Fannie's Chicken Salad Sandwich, Saddie Mae's Grilled Cheese, the Yummy Yummy Bowl and the Chopped Salad. The food was great!
Time to antique and shop the booths
One of the first booth's was Miss Lucille's mouthwatering kettle corn. We all went home with a bag of kettle corn! (I was hoping my husband would be happy I brought him something to eat and would not ask how my checkbook was looking. He didn't even ask!)
The kettle corn came in several different flavors.
Over 200 booths
There was something for everyone: antiques, new clothing, new decor pieces, furniture, jewelry, and metal work.
My Fabulous Finds
I was antiquing with a purpose. Blue and white pieces were on my list for this antiquing trip. My group knew what I was looking for and they were happy to help. Pictures of my finds were taken at home after the trip.
My first fabulous find was a piece of Polish Pottery. The 5.5 inch blue and white flower dot teapot was stamped on the bottom with Boleslawiec, hand made in Poland.
A Majolica teapot in a Partridge in a Pear Tree was another good find. This teapot was made in 1994 by Henriksen. I love the cobalt blue in this piece.
Another vintage piece that made it to my cart was a blue and white Hengstenberg German Milk Glass mustard jar.
The mustard jar is about 5 inches jar and perfect to go in my hutch with other blue and white dishes.
Those pieces have all been placed in my kitchen hutch.
The other pieces of blue and white that came home with me were not antiques but caught my eye because I just liked that cobalt blue color. A platter and two dinner plates. I found the platter at one booth and the two plates at another booth. Lucky me! I'll use them in the kitchen but not in the kitchen hutch.
A 13-inch shallow bowl came home with me too.
The last three finds include a black finial and two blue and white chinoiserie orbs.
The 13-in shallow bowl and the black finial are now on the fireplace mantel. Note: The fireplace and hearth are getting ready for another update. Third time should be a charm! Hint: I'm tired of the grout lines.
Hope you enjoyed the trip to Miss Lucille's. I am not affiliated with Miss Lucille but sure enjoyed the visit.
