{Places to Shop} ~ Frisco Mercantile Antiques Shop


The very cheerful young ladies who helped wrap up all that pink loveliness for me!


Happy just a few days until
Christmas!


Today I thought I'd just bring you a quick post
about the place where I found all that lovely 
pink transferware ironstone china the other day...





Frisco Mercantile
 8980 Preston Rd.
Frisco, Texas 75034
972-712-7300

Located about an hour north of Dallas, Texas, Frisco Mercantile is an nice venue with over 200 antiques shops inside this huge location carrying so many beautiful wares to buy including Christmas and holiday items as well as painted and stained furniture and gorgeous tinkling chandeliers! {my favorite!}


I wasn't looking for anything that day
least of all to go shopping
as I'd come down just to check out the area
but...
It's hard to pass up a new antiques store
to go browsing around in ~ so I did!
And, that's where I found my new-to-me 
pink transferware.
:)

Frisco Mercantile reminds me of several 
antiques emporiums 
I've visited back in California such as
Vignettes
down in Ocean Beach near San Diego
and
Second Impressions
in Mitchell, South Dakota.



With shop owners carefully curated items for sale
I'm going to have to put blinders on next time as it would
have been really easy to spend a small fortune
here!
And I know that those chandeliers were talking to me...
;)



Usually I look for small items like silver spoons
or vintage linens and really I was only 
looking for candelabras.
Happily I found the one I used in the story about the
Pink transferware
but then I looked up from studying it...
That's when I saw the transferware pieces tucked into
this white hutch just waiting for me to notice them!
;)


I love this candelabras graceful lines and curves!
It is a lovely complement to the delicate looking pink china,
don't you think?
It's a pretty piece and matches a small chandelier
that used to hang in my craftroom back in the Big House.
I'll have to take a close up photo of this little
tabletop candelabra
so you can see the delicate petals of each leaf
which surrounds each candle holder.
Really pretty!



Loved the entrance all decorated for the holidays here at Frisco Mercantile!


When you are in the Dallas area
do stop by.
 All in all a fun day's outing!
Enjoy, 
Barb :)
