The Frosted Lion

February 18, 2012

Having an affinity for antiques and anything vintage, I’m lucky to live in Athens, GA where there are several vintage stores to satisfy my treasure hunting needs.

Avoiding looming deadlines, I decided to explore part of highway 441 heading south from Athens, to check out some antique/junk shops I’ve seen driving through Bishop, Georgia.  Located in this small crossroads community, I found The Frosted Lion antique shop.  I had seen it several times before in passing but never had the time to stop.  The shop resides in what appears to be a turn of the century two story commercial brick building, with a striking red storefront.  The self-proclaimed antique/junk store occupies the entire ground floor of the building, so needless to say I was there for quite a while.

I found countless pieces of china and furniture (of course) of interest to me, however I made a promise last year not to buy anymore large items until we know where we are moving post grad school.  So I indulged myself with photos…

There were so many books I wanted to take home! But with an already full book shelf, I resisted, and took home a few fun items from the 1950s.

Ryan and I lived in Hawaii for a few years so when we find old Hawaiian records we can’t pass them up.

This was a totally unnecessary purchase but… I had never seen a lipstick bar before and I thought how perfect for my Burt’s Bees collection.

The one thing I did need…no more scribbled recipes floating around the kitchen!
