Frann Visits The Treasure Trove Antique & Tea Shoppe!

Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!!

As I told you in my previous post we had snow in our sweet little town today... So Frann Doll decided to walk downtown and finally visit the Treasure Trove like she's been wanting to do since she first saw it driving by one day. She looked up the The Treasure Trove on Facebook and could tell it was a magical place! Sadly, Heather Doll wasn't able to join her in her adventure because she had other plans so she made Frann Doll promise to take her along next time! 

She knew the moment she walked in that she'd been right! The The Treasure Trove was magical indeed. She loved all the beautiful treasures, trinkets, dishes, glassware, crystal and jewelry and and and and and... Oh so many things to see!! She knew she would need to take her time in this beautiful shoppe or she might miss the perfect treasure for the Doll House or as a gift for a friend. She needed to buy a gift for Beth Doll and knew she'd find just the perfect thing here today.

She spotted what she had come in mind with right away! Vintage linens are one of Beth's favorite things! She'd have to look them over more closely after she browsed around more and choose the perfect ones for Beth. 

Everywhere she turned there was beautiful glassware, tea cups, dishes and every manner of thing you might need to set the most elegant and formal dinner party! 

This cabinet of gorgeous glass and stemware was like art to look at with the light coming through! So pretty with the amazing selection differently shaped formal wine or water goblets, champagne flutes, burgandy goblets. Frann also loved the little statue of the children with the little girl holding a doll. 

"Look! This chair is nearly my size!!"

How fun!! An antique toy phone!! Frann had to give it a try! Do you remember phones like this? 

Frann loves books and so she spent a little time glancing through the vast selection of vintage and antique books... So many to choose from! 

More stemware was displayed on this fabulous mirrored marble topped dresser and Frann just had to have a photo by it! The lamps are so perfectly displayed on the shelves that I imagine that must've been their original purpose. Frann noticed they had crystals on them which always remind her of the movie Pollyanna with Hailey Mills and how she strung the crystals in the window to make prisms. Have you ever seen it? 

Frann saw the tea sets and knew she'd be back some other time to pick one for the Doll House! One can never have too many tea sets in a house so full of girls to have tea parties afterall, right?

So many lovely sets to choose from!

An old school gumball machine!! Awesomeness. 

There was more downstairs!! Frann decided this is a store she would need to come back and visit often and so she wouldn't miss the treasure that was meant just for her!

Frann saw this dresser and said "Wouldn't this be great for accessories at the doll house?" Indeed... Indeed..

Just look at this!! A doll sized old fashioned phone as well! The Treasure Trove  has everything!

Frann Doll never imagined she'd make friends at the store!! She probably chatted with these gals for twenty minutes. She told them all about the Doll House and they told her all about their life in the store and where they'd all lived before. They were all great friends before Frann left. 

Frann loved this little statue of a wolf! The downstairs display room was so fun!

Just as she was about to go back upstairs to pick out linens she spotted more adorable doll sized items!! 

She went back upstairs and picked out two beautiful antique embroidered pillow cases, two embroidered tea towels for the kitchen, two vintage handkerchiefs and a sweet silver key chain for her friend Beth. She knows they'll be just perfect!

So if you ever happen to come to our neck of the woods, you must certainly stop in to The Treasure Trove yourself. The owner Patti is good people and will help you find just the perfect thing for your house or as a gift for someone you love. If you stop in before the end of the month she is having a sale on most everything in the store!! Tell her Frann says hi if you stop in! 

That's it for now Doll Friends!!
Till Next Time!
