Retail Therapy

I made a road trip on Friday.  My Mother lives in East Tennessee and the main purpose of my visit was to visit her.

I had hear and read about a retail shop in Clinton called The Speckled Hen.  Betty, Through my Back Door often writes in her blog about The Hen and it looked like a place I would enjoy.  The Speckled Hen is located on Market Street in Clinton.  If you like antiques, tea rooms, a friendly visit with Betty, and streets lined with beautiful flowers Market Street is a place you will want to visit. 

The Speckled Hen did not disappoint, it is a lovely shop filled with primitives, colonial, early American and antiques.  This pewter plate is one item I added to my shopping cart.

Another item I added was a table square from Family Heirloom Weavers.  The pattern is called United/Divided.  In each corner is woven "United We Stand, Divided We Fall."  Adds a nice touch to the dry sink in the Grandmother's Room.

On May 5th, Market Street will be hosting the 8th Annual Clinch River Spring Antique Fair.  Hmm, is there another road trip in my near future?


  1. Nice! I love retail therapy. :D

  2. I keep meaning to get back down to Clinton & I will ... sooner rather than later I hope : )

  3. Betty, it was so nice getting to meet you and I do hope you get back for the festival.
