Last week my friend Ragna and I headed west to Lakehills, TX about 45 minutes from San Antonio to enjoy a day of thrift shopping and views of the Texas Hill Country. Today's post is for thrift shop and garden junk fans. There are a lot of you out there because Yeya's in San Antonio has been my most popular post by far.
Our first stop was the Lakehills Trading Post at 12410 Park Rd 37, right by the sign for Hill of Contentment which I found quite fitting for this adventure.
The exterior fits the western style of most buildings in the area.
The owner, Sharon Spears, has put together great selection of vintage glassware, collectibles and plenty of other nice items.
Plenty of pretty options for garden stakes, fairy gardens, totems, and dish flowers here.
The prices are good and less than similar shops in San Antonio.
I was thrilled to find more green insulators to add to my collection in the garden.
Very nice Hill Country style iron and wood pieces on display.
The inventory changes daily and she also sells special finds on ebay as well. Lakehills Trading Post has a facebook page and you can also reach Sharon at 210-771-0663.
After we loaded up our purchases from the trading post, we walked across the road to Cherokee's Shop.
Rozanne Martinez features lots of rust and old tools at her shop
I liked this floor inside the shop
A different approach to bottle trees
Rusty cultivator, tricycle and other items
Old signs, tools, and barbed wire displayed on the garage
Just in case you forgot we're in Texas!
You can reach Rozanne by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I enjoyed our visit to both these shops and came home with cool stuff for my garden. We headed next to nearby Medina Lake and I'll share views of the lake and plants in a future post.
