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…
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.
