Caravatis was NOT a disappointment.
The BIG building was a bit dark and I was pretty excited so the pictures will not do it justice.
The funny thing is we were there for doors and radiators and I didn't take one picture of all the radiators!
We did not buy anything this trip...I was a little overwhelmed....but we will go back soon because they are HAVING A SALE ALL MONTH!
Need a spindle or two?
Lotsa, lotsa, locks!
Somehow I didn't get any pictures of all the gorgeous DOORKNOBS. OMG.
Would love this matching pair hanging in my kitchen....
This was the coolest. A window I think? The grate inside is WOOD. And the patina.....GORGEOUS.
Lots of plumbing fixtures too....
And the SMELL. I just love that smell of old possibilities just waiting to be discovered!!!
We laughed out loud at this sign.
We left with lots of potential purchases in our (well my) heads.
Ate a fantastic lunch at a vegetarian restaurant, Harrison Street Cafe, right near VCU, jumped into Elwood Thompson's (a fantastic healthfood grocer, not only do they give you that usual .05 credit for bringing your own bag, they give you a credit if you take the bus or WALK!) and then drove home in time to pick up dry cleaning and to stop by the old new house. Greg hadn't seen all the work done this week! (He should read my blog for updates!)
Promise pictures of pots next. Really.
