A Day Out – Antiquing and Thrifting

There is nothing more a thrifter/vintage/antique shopper loves more than to come across a new place to shop.

My partner in crime couldn’t join me on my latest adventure so I went solo but was instructed to take lots of pictures, just in case it is worthy of a second trip (trust me it is).

The new place I discovered is about an hour and a half from my house in a little town called Pigeon Lake (that’s in Alberta, Canada),  the name of the store is Backstreet. I met one of the owners Maureen and we had a great chat about the business and in particular the second store out back called Backstreet Cottage. It use to be a church, turned woodworking shop, turned furniture/home decor store, which it is today.  She was ok with me taking pics and videos and I promised her I would tag her in my post. They also write a blog and have great information and photos on their website – be sure to take a look at https://www.backstreetantique.com/

 

Check out the giant chair on the roof 🙂

Here is the front store (shown above) with new home decor, fashion, jewelry, candles and a few antique pieces in the mix. There is also another shop and SEVEN, yes seven sea cans full of antiques to browse through – YES, I checked everyone of them out.

Now for a ton of pictures – enjoy!

Feast for the eyes 🙂 A lot of these pictures were taken in the sea cans 🙂 and in the gift shop there was something for everyone (meaning the guys too).

I also took a few videos…

Have you ever been here? Would you go?  Leave me some comments.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you back here soon.

I’d love it if you would follow me at all these lovely places:
