Our first stop was at a huge antique mall in the old schoolhouse. Old classrooms are full of beautiful antiques. . . And collectibles.Nooks. . .
Crannies. . . And closets are full of just about anything you might hope to find. In the basement I was fascinated to find vintage rocking toys. A handmade pink horse. . . An unusual red riding horse. . . And a silly rocking rooster! The vintage gymnasium next to the schoolhouse is filled with gorgeous old furniture. Just across the street from the schoolhouse is the most wonderful old estate. A bed and breakfast. I had to scoot across the highway to take a picture or two. Wouldn't you love to see inside? Down the street a bit we stopped at the Pack Rat Antiques. Another favorite.Inside we found more wonderful things. A hot car.
For a hot date.I love vintage clothing. Especially children's clothing. Christening gowns are my favorite. The details of the bodice. . . And the eyelet on the ruffle. Soon it was time to hit the road again and continue our trip west toward the coast. We will return to Lafayette again in the near future. It's close by and a place we love to go. It's a treat. Even when we don't buy a thing.
