TALMADGE RD. ANTIQUES
Last week I tackled a job that was long overdue. I de-cluttered my computer desk and gathered all the snippets of paper on which I'd jotted phone numbers, appointment dates, and other bits of information I wanted or needed to remember. I located a small spiral notebook and transferred those fragments of my mind to its pages. I didn't write them down in any particular order. I simply listed things as I came to them. In so doing, I found myself writing down "Talmadge Rd. Mercantile". Since I couldn't remember why that was important to me, I "Googled" it. The owner of Butter Street Barn had mentioned that shop the last time I'd visited hers and I'd written the name on the first piece of paper I'd encountered after I'd arrived home that day.
Talmadge Rd. Mercantile is a wonderful primitives shop located in Clayton, Ohio, just 20 minutes from my home. I called the owner to make sure the shop was open and asked for directions. I couldn't believe how easy it was to find and what a treasure trove it was. The shop is housed in a building that was formerly a general store and it retains that old fashioned charm. When I went inside, it was as if I'd walked back in time. The owner gave permission to share photos of her shop. I'll definitely be visiting again soon. You can click on the photos to enlarge them.
