Hunting for treasures? Let’s go to New Visions!

I have a really good place to ‘HUNT’!


New Visions Marketplace is close enough to stop at whenever I am out and about…


and you never know what you will find when you shop!


There’s always something ‘new’…


or something you didn’t see when you walked through the last time!


I have a few things in mind to look for when I shop!


And one of those is Children’s books….


and most especially old school books!


These are a few in my collection!


And the old briefcase is my hubby’s…he still uses it! The pencil case is an old cedar box!


Colorado Lady has a wonderful post HERE with some of the books she found this week! And my girlfriend at Back 2Vintage has a post HERE and HERE with some wonderful school books!

They sure bring back fond memories for me! I enjoyed elementary school and loved to read…and learn!


School begins here in about a week. Did you look forward to school starting?

It's me Prudence - I am home from camp.

I love your new treasures. That looks like a fun place to "shop".

Looks like a special place! We have a few of those places here in Bardstown, but I seem to never find anything good! You're so lucky!

Hello Diane, yes I looked forward to school starting I remember I cried every summer when it let out LOL. When I was real young you could find me hiding out with a flashlight in my closet reading, I walked to the library in the summer and brought books home to read. When my folks would want to go to town for the day, we lived in a small town and they went to the big one to grocery shop etc. I would always throw a fit and tell them I would stay in my closet by myself LOL

Love old school primers they are great
And what a sweet little shop, I wish there were shops close enough for me to go to here.

I want to go there! No, I never looked forward to school. Either for myself or my kids. I wanted life to be one long continuous summer vacation! Twyla

Hi Diane,
Yes, I actually did look forward to school starting each year. I have one of my mom's old school books that I keep out on display...I love books!!
Isn't it fun to have a thrift shop so close to home. I have 3 within about 15 minutes from where I live and I try to stop in them every chance I get.
Have a great weekend.

Some years I did look forward to school, others not so much, Diane. Love that little shop ... what a great coke cooler.

Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

I would stay there for hours and hours! So many cool treasures!
Blessings, Joanne

I love the old books. You are so lucky to live in NC!! They are such great places like this one. We have a few, but none so great. We have a new one opening not far from the house, so I cannot wait to check it out, but will probably take a while to get geared up. I will let you know!

I love your old reading books...I loved school, especially reading. How schools teach reading has changed so much. I remember my fourth grade teacher taking us outside under a big tree and reading a couple chapters each afternoon, it was my favorite part of the school day.

Ruth Welter said...

What a wonderful shop LD, looks like you had a ball there. Enjoy your weekend.


Debi said...

This looks like a shop I could spend hours in. Love those basic readers.

That does look like a fun place to do some browsing and dreaming.
I was at a fun church school sale today with lots of older childrens books and only a quarter a piece. I wished I could carry more!

nancy huggins said...

Wow..My husband would love that old coke cooler and I would love some of the books..I think it is a little to far to go to shop but it sure would be fun

Diane Writes said...

Hello namemate! I would looooove to visit the shop too. The entrance already mesmerized me. I love the look. The antique and vintage stuff is heaven :)

Simple Daisy said...

Ooh...what a fabulous place to hunt!!!
School starting...say it isn't so!!
I'm a teacher and we start Monday:(
I am always sad to see summer go!

Ames said...

I love places like that. I can get lost in there for a long time!~Ames

I just love old books, and they do bring back such nice memories. I love that briefcase, it reminds me of my old schoolbag.

Looks like an amazing place to hunt for a good find.


Lindsay-ann said...

Oh I want to go there. Looks my kind of place. English schools have 3 more weeks of summer. I was always ready to go back, I like routine :)

Q said...
