This past Saturday I took a trip about 20 minutes from my house to a little town called Glendale.
Glendale is set back in good ol' Kentucky farm land where beautiful landscapes are
not hard to be found.
I started visiting Glendale with my mother when I was a small child.
It is from her where I found my love of antiques and vintage.
We would make a day of visiting Glendale.
Shopping, lunch and admiring the beauty Glendale has to offer.
Glendale's history is raw in nature. They have a special zoning regulation that keeps out businesses such as fast food restaurant chains from its core downtown business area. Thus giving it it's old-time appeal.
Speaking to the 'locals' over the years, I have heard at one point the ONLY business Glendale had was a general store. That general store is still standing today. Although it has been turned into an antique/craft store front, the new owners have never changed its general store appearance.
Every 3rd Saturday of October they hold their fall festival called Glendale Crossing Festival.
I bought quite a few things from the festival. I will break my new finds up into 2 or 3 posts.
Here are a few pics I nabbed from the web of Glendale.
Green Top Antiques is relatively new to Glendale. They have a ton of goodies!
Bennie's Barn Antique Mall is definitely my favorite shop in Glendale! The owners are very sweet and so are the booths! Here's a couple...
Fiestaware and Fire King Jadeite!!! Oh la la!
Old General Store turned antique store. They have to-die-for quilts!
Please promise me! If you ever visit Glendale, Kentucky, you have to eat at The Whistle Stop.
Their food is DEFINITELY amazing. Be sure to try the fried green tomatoes or fried pickles!
Make sure you wear your sweat pants before you eat or you'll be unbuttoning your pants after your delicious meal!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
