Selma, North Carolina is a small town that's filled with antique shops and interesting and fun things to do (click on the link above and see what I mean). My sister and I and my daughter's mother-in-law spent the day there earlier this week to celebrate my daughter's mother-in-law's birthday. The three of us always take each other out on our birthdays.
Antique shops line both sides of the streets in Selma.
This shop on Railroad Street is one of my favorite places. "Railroad Street Antiques and Collectibles". Very inviting with the flower box out front overflowing with ivy. (my sister below)
This shop below was on Raiford Street. I forget the name but there were so many wonderful things inside. I wish I would have taken more photos, but I was too busy looking.
We stopped at The Cakery for lunch. Not only did they serve cake, but yummy sandwiches and homemade soups.
We had Three Tier Strawberry Cake and coffee outside in the warm sunshine.
I must show you one of the things I bought (below). I fell in love with this teeny weeny tea cup with a parrot on the handle ~ $3.00.
And this wire vase made me smile. "Dance among the Flowers" ~ had to have it. $8.00.
I also bought the paperweight on the first photo.
Ok, getting back to Selma....we stopped here to take photos and have a sip of coffee. Isn't it pretty? Love the birdhouse and old wrought iron fence.
This was the last place of the day.
We spent SO much time in here. The three of us were the very last ones to leave. They didn't mind a bit they said! And they even helped us carry all our things to the car.
