Dizzy With Delight-A New Source

Did you ever get so giddy over a place?  Yes, I am using that silly word!  Dizzy...giddy...lighthearted...frivolous...they all apply to this place, Bob Withington Antiques on Route 1 in York, Maine.   I had the pleasure of visiting several antique stores along this scenic route in Maine and had a blissful experience!   I have posted the map of this area below (end of post) so you may see all the wonderful shops you can visit along this route.  There are at least twenty three stores to visit!  I went a little faint seeing all of these garden urns.  Love them!

Martha Stewart also loves this store too!  We have alot in common her and she is with the owner.  Check out her post she did about her visit there on her blog, The Martha Blog.

This large store offers European and American furnishings, garden ornaments, and other fine vintage items. 
I love the feel of this antique store.  Everything goes together beautifully.

This statuary was already "sold".  Lucky for me...

I love the rustic elegance of these lamps.

Once again, I am a big fan of garden ornaments and urns.  This faux bois (french for false wood) planter is beautiful.

Here is the map of Route 1 in Maine.  You would start in York and work your way up!
Have a wonderful time if you go.  I know I will be back again soon, that is for sure.  Next time though, I am buying something from Withington Antiques.  I have my eyes on the garden urns!
Have fun!

It looks so nice! We have antique stores where I grew up but they aren't as nice as this!

Looks like such a great place to shop. I have already printed off the map! Thanks for sharing.

Have you visited the York Decorator Showhouse at Twin Cottages yet? I hear it is excellent this year. I will be heading up there soon to check out the design show and hopefully do some antique shopping, too!

Oh my gosh, I want to jump into my computer and visit this shop. What fantastic things she has! Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
Look forward to going this fall when I am in New England.
