Fretta’s

IMG_0323

Fretta’s is a small to moderately sized antique mall, it is a quaint little shop with lots of charm and whose booth owners have lots of sweet personalities. The shop is mostly run by Fretta and her daughter, Christine. Both are pleasant to speak to and have lots of knowledge concerning antiques and vintage items.

Here are a few things I found while wandering into Fretta’s this weekend.

Fretta has several booths throughout her place with a few rooms in the back and lots of charm mingled into the lots.  It is a joy to shop her mall and I hope if you are in the area you can explore Fretta’s too.

This vintage patio set caught my eye with its cheery yellow hues…wouldn’t this look cute sitting on a small porch or patio this spring? I can just see a pot of red geraniums sitting on the table with a set of tea cups next to it so I can enjoy my morning tea…with a friend.

Fretta, Patsy, Heidi and Fretta’s daughter, Christine

Here are some of the smiling faces you might see when you visit.

I have to show you the finds I spied behind these wonderful women…

IMG_0321If you are into glassware…which I am not, so I don’t know what these are called, sorry…you might want to stop and browse here. Aren’t these beautiful?!

Vintage pins…

IMG_0311This trunk looks interesting. Couldn’t think of where I might have space for this in my little home though…

IMG_0309This old enamel stove is my friend Patsy’s  pièce de résistance, she found this in my neighborhood and couldn’t wait to tell me about it. Isn’t it a beauty. I overheard a lady telling her friend today, “I guess it’s not for sale, too bad”. I should have told her, a fair price might turn her head!

Here is another display at Patsy’s booth…

Here is my lil’ area within Patsy’s booth.

IMG_0307Here’s a closer look. Right now I have beaded bracelets and fabric flowers, both pins or clips. These are made from vintage buttons and fabrics and my bracelets have vintage beads in them.

Hope you can join us yet tomorrow for more fun at Fretta’s! fish

About designgirl178

Several years ago God blessed me with a beautiful son who happens to have Down syndrome. It has been a magical, sometimes difficult journey, I wouldn't trade it for anything. My son is awesome! You will see some blogs about Brody, but mostly I am blogging about my life and all that we do. After working for years in an industry that was slowly going to the oversees market, I lost my job. My shop started out of necessity and I've been loving my work ever since! I use a lot of found objects or recycled products and buy mostly in the US. I am proud to say most of the money you use to purchase my products does not go outside of the US. I have been making jewelry and weaving for many years and now enjoy these activities on an everyday basis. My beaded bracelets use found and recycled elements as does my weaving and fabric flowers, headbands etc. Custom orders will be honored as much as possible, and ask only that items be paid within 3 days, otherwise it will be listed for public sale and no longer reserved. I appreciate my customers buying American made goods and helping to save the environment at the same time. Thank you all.
