While on our trip through North Carolina a couple of weeks ago we stopped in an old antique shop. I can't even remember which town it was, but this building had been an old Bed and Breakfast and was converted into an Antique shop.
It was a really neat building to roam around in. I found a knitting bag with some yarn inside. There was no price, so I asked "how much". The lady said $2.00.
When I dug down inside, there was a whole container full of crochet needles. Surely worth more then just $2.00. My daughter was thrilled to have new size needles.
As we traveled around in the area, we came upon this elegant building.
Now I know absolutely nothing about golfing, but apparently this is THE place to golf when you are in North Carolina. It has been here since 1900.
How about this elegant hallway -
I'm sure there isn't anything in this place that cost $2.00. Well, maybe a pack of gum or something ;-)
On one of our final evenings, we went to dinner at the Ellerbe Springs Inn, a very OLD Bed and Breakfast.
And let me tell you, this place was OLD, but they made the BEST southern fried chicken that I have had in ages. So I guess the old adage of don't judge a book by it's cover, also applies to old hotels.
Enjoy your thriftin' weekend!
