Primitive ** Vintage Antique Soap Saver ** Cupboard Pocket

Have you taken a peek in TDIPT Mercantile ? There are lots of handmade primitives for your home or for a special gift to a prim friend or family member.

Right now I have a primitive vintage antique soap saver pocket up for grabs.

Tucked in the coffee dyed pocket are three vermont maple scented lantern lights from Samplers Country ( I love these candles from Stephanie ! ) and pinned on the pocket is a prim label from Yankee Lane Primitves. These labels are just perfectly made and even have a nice scent.

Preserved fragrant sweet annie and some lavender tucked in for good measure !

To take a peek at my offerings for June just click the link below.

I have also just updated my selling blog ! Yes, it is about time ! On my selling blog you will find three prim pockets tucked full of needfuls and vintage antique finds. A pantry, buttery and a needfuls pocket are now up for your consideration.

Look at these wood floors... on the second floor of the building below.. wish I could have brought that floor home with me.

My dh and I went for a ride today and ended up in Bedford. Lots of history and places to see in Bedford. I just love the old buildings ! Lots of little shops and antique stores here, too.

Duffy's Tavern built in 1819 ~ Boalsburg, PA.

Click the photos to enlarge.

This is Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg, Pa. just four miles from State College( Penn State ). The Tavern was built in 1819 and was once a stage coach stop way back when.
The second floor was once used as a ballroom. The stone walls are 22 inches thick.

One of the dining areas in the tavern.

This is my favorite spot in Duffy's Tavern. Look at that stairway ~ I love it !

An abundance of ambiance and atmosphere surround you while dining here along with good food at a reasonable price.

One of the fireplaces in the Duffy Tavern.

Low doorways. This gentleman is 6' tall.

The drawer shown under the window was once used as a cash drawer.

The drawer underneath the cupboard had also been used as a cash drawer.

I took these photos today while dining here. The grilled chicken salad was so big I couldn't eat all of it ! The menu is varied ~ from soups to salads, burgers, speciality sandwiches, and also seafood, steak and chicken entrees. There is also a bar if you may want to imbibe.

Eating here is a very pleasant dining experience and the wait staff was very friendly.
