What's in Grannys Attic?

One of my favorite places to go antiquing is at Granny's Attic Antique Mall.

Granny's Attic is located a few blocks from Old Town Temecula. Because it is not located right in Old Town, it has much better prices.

Now I love to go antiquing, but I don't have any money right now. But I can still window shop.

So how about you come along with me and help me window shop. I'll show you what I would buy if I had money. Come on in!!
Even before we go in, I spy something I would love. This beautiful fountain!!! But it's not for sale. It sits out front of the store. They have to chain it down to keep it from being stolen. And I can see why.

Look, milk glass pulls!!! I want them. I already have some clear glass pulls & knobs, but aren't these milk glass ones to die for?

How about these galvanized tin pots, buckets or what ever you would call them? Looks like a big tin cup. They are huge. They would make a cool planter.

I just love anything old & rusty. How about you? This would look great in my back yard.

And I love these. Medallions, or what ever they are called.

Why can't I remember what anything is called while I'm writing my posts? That is why I could never be a writer and hated writing my descriptions for stuff I would sell on eBay. I forget what everything is called.

No matter what they are, they are fabulous. Wouldn't know what I'd do with them, except just admire them. And maybe drool some.

I adore these glasses. They would be great for a tablescape. I can't remember how much they were. My brain doesn't work sometimes. I'm blonde you know. Which is a great excuse for forgetting things. Comes in quite handy. I use it to it's fullest advantage.

How about this chandelier? Maybe I could talk my son into getting it for me for Mother's Day. I'd love to put in my bedroom. Do you think I could convince hubby to give up the ugly ceiling fan? And I would hate to dust all those crystals. Maybe I could talk my son into getting me a maid as well.

I want one of these rusty metal letters in the worse way. But they are like $30.00 a piece. Way out of my price range. And I didn't see a "K".

I want this scrolly thing! It's only $14.00. I don't think it's old though. Looks like someone just made it. I asked hubby if he could make me one & he said YES. Now if only I can get him to actually make one for me. And where would I put it if he does? How about on top of my TV armoire in my family room? Oh hubby........

I just love, love, love this silver brides basket. But it's like $90 something dollars!!! I did find a cheaper brides basket at a thrift store a few years back for just a few bucks. Not as nice as this one, but it works for me. Don't you just love the shape of the handle on this one?

I love the carved birds on this hat stand. But alas, the hat stand is not for sale. It it were, I'm sure it would be out of my price range.

I think we need a little sunshine. How about we go out back to the garden area? Lots of cool stuff out here that I would love to take home. And everything is on sale!!!

This iron gazebo needs to come home with me. Right now!!! But not at $1000 it won't. Too bad I didn't win the Mega Millions lotto last night or it might be.

How about a bird cage? Too pricey. If I still had my cockatiel, I might be tempted. Heck, I'm still tempted. But still too pricey. Ooh, look at the gargoyles. I love gargoyles, even though they are creepy. Reminds me of Paris, or maybe Ghostbusters. I prefer Paris.

I'd love me some iron gates and/or fencing. The rustier the better. Wouldn't iron fencing be great around my estate, I mean house? Iron fencing with ivy growing up through it. Perfection.

Why oh why is everything I love too pricey? My mom always told me that I have champagne taste on a beer budget. And I don't even drink.

I hope you have enjoyed our little trip to Granny's Attic. Thanks for coming along. Can you believe that I did not spend one cent? Me niether. I think it was a first for me.

Don't you wish that you had a granny who really had such fabulous stuff in her attic just for you? And you didn't have to spend a dime?

Well a girl can dream can't she?


  1. Oooh, thanks! I needed that. Lovely, lovely things. Those milk glass pulls ARE tdf! It is a personal pet peeve of mine when stuff in stores -- the best stuff -- is not for sale. Is it a store or a museum?? Anyway, getting back to your lovely things. I think I would choose the chandelier -- lovely! Oh, wait, money-no-object? Then probably the gazebo . . . but that would have to come with fully fencing my yard so no neighbors try to sit in it! :)

    Fun post, thanks.

  2. Thanks so much for taking us along on this shopping trip. I see lots of nice goodies. Hard to go and not buy something you see though.

  3. Looks like fun! Hey I think you won at Bungalow. Did you check it out?

  4. SO with you on the milk glass knobs! They are special!! Thanks for taking us along to this great treasure store!
    Hugs, Lisa

  5. Thank you for taking me shopping! I love all of it. If I had the $, I'd want the gargoyles! Thank goodness I live so far away!
