Last week I found myself in Palestine, Texas ((pronounced  PAL-es-teen). All was pretty quiet, considering it was mid week!

The highlight of my visit was the Star of Texas Antiques! Doesn't it just invite you in?

It's owned by Susan and Roddy Millichamp (I think you can catch a glimpse of Miss Susan in the middle of the shop.)  She was busy the day I stopped by.

The small space is full to the brim of great treasures and the prices are just right!
I know if Emily had come along with me she would have been shopping the Pyrex shelves.  I'm sure she would have found at least ONE piece she doesn't own.  

However, I'm always drawn to the vintage linens.  Each linen was beautifully cleaned and ironed.  The world is perfect when linens are ironed!  HA!

There were many old books and furniture items upstairs.  It's not an in and out kind of shop. Stopping frequently and browsing takes time.  I bought some beautiful embroidered quilt squares.  You'll see them shortly (re-purposed!)
SO...if ever in Palestine...you know where to go!
Be sure and tell Miss Susan hello.  You won't find a friendlier, kind soul!

Oh my Goodness! You were within 30 minutes of me. I live in Fairfield which is west of Palestine on Hwy 84. We go to the movies and to Wal-Mart in Palestine.

What a small world!!!

I have not been in that store in a while -- I need to go in and check it out.
