A working VACATION...road trip day 1

Around our Birthday time, mr. Bed of Roses and I take off for a fews day to Utah & Cache counties for some antique shopping. Our favorite is TREASURES Antique Mall, there are 2 BIG buildings to shop and we spent 4 hours there, we gave ourselves 2 hours! They are having a big yard sale and inside sales on Sept. 6th 8:00 a.m. Its West of Springville, take freeway exit, turn to the right and follow the road south. I bought one man dress form and a unique woman dress form, I will show pictures of them lateras they are turning out so awesome! Love them!
Next off to American Fork on Main where FINDERS KEEPERS SHOP is run by Tammi, plenty of space to show off painted furniture, fun lamps & colors for kids bedrooms. Working that day was Jana, who is Jenni B's (our cupcake girl) mother, who also started the Blue Goose boutique in American Fork and ran it for years She is delightful and darn wish I had taken a picture with her.

Halloween has begun at Dear Lizzies in Alpine...just take Alpine exit there by Thanksgiving Point and you will find it in a shopping center corner on the south side of road. I love how Dear Lizzies is quite girlie girlie and love how its displays are based in with antiques. Now I am more motivated to get the oranges coming in...and they will!

Each place inspired me in different a shop owner you are always curious of how your own shop fits into the picture of others, and helps me evaluate my strengths and weakness' we came home quite exhausted but well worth it!
Hope you can take some time to GET AWAY too and visit these fun shops. Check back this evening I will tell about day 2 in Brigham and Logan.

I do love that Antique mall in Springville. I've found great bargains there. Thanks for letting us know about the other cute places. Probably not as cute as yours though...Mimi
