Last weekend was a great weekend to do a little Antique shopping, and that is exactly what my husband and I did! If you live in or around Harrison County, you may have noticed this building off of I-79 near the Meadowbrook exit with a big sign that says Antiques. Well, I have driven by there probably a million times and I finally said I need to go there. So off we went. We pulled in at around the same time as two other cars. The owner was standing at the door, and he told us that the place is not open for business hours. OH NO!! Big disappointment! But he was nice, probably because it was a beautiful day, and he told us we could take a look around for about 10 minutes. And, Oh my, were we in for a TREAT!! I can never express enough what heaven it was walking through this building, and even on the outside!
The owner’s name is George Shahady. He was a super nice man, and very knowledgeable. I came to find out that his wife is a colleague of mine in the school system. I talk to her a lot professionally, and had no idea that her husband was an antique dealer! How that slipped by me I don’t know. Shahady’s Antiques used to be open for business on Main Street in Bridgeport, but some time after 9-11, he moved to this location, and no longer keeps regular business hours. But trust me, he still does plenty of business! I introduced myself and told him a little about my blog, and he allowed me to take a few pictures. I asked him if I could come back another time when there was more time and take more pictures and talk to him more, and he gave me his card. I am hoping to get back over there, because there was so much to see and share! I was only there for probably 15 minutes and I snapped every shot I could, but I would love to be able to get details about the items I see from him. That wasn’t possible on this day. He also has other building on the property stocked full of stuff that we didn’t get to go into. I am so excited to share the pictures I took with you! I can’t give you prices or details, but I hope you enjoy just looking like we did. Because this place was AMAZING!! I can’t believe it is less than 5 minutes from my front door! My husband was equally amazed with this place.
