I love going shopping at flea markets, antique shops and antique malls, don't you? This week I went to the Olde Engine Works antique mall in Stroudsburg, PA. This mall has a large number of booths that truly offer antiques in every booth. There was some furniture in some booths, but mainly a lot of pottery, porcelain, glass, toys, pictures and frames, jewelry, vintage clothing, etc.
It took me about 2 hours to explore all of the booths at the Olde Engine Works. I had a great time! I bought a beautiful caned seat chair, a lovely brown crock and a large blue mixing bowl. I also got a cobalt blue glass bowl and a perfume bottle, also in cobalt blue, my favorite color.
Among the glass there, I saw a lot of depression glass in various colors, canning jars, vases, etc. I bought a Kerr's Mason Jar and a Ball Jar, both with glass lids. I also got a couple of things for this year's Christmas gifts!
The staff at the Olde Engine Works was very helpful, coming down the aisles to take selected merchandise from me and put it on the holding table for me. This was a big help!
It is always nice to combine an antique expedition with another activity for the day and this time I got the chance to visit my Mom in the nursing home where she lives. We had a very good visit!
If you want to visit the Olde Engine Works, it is located at 62 N. Third St., Stroudsburg, PA 18360 (570-421-4340). It is definitely worth the trip if you live in Southeastern PA or Northwestern NJ.
