Saturday I went to the MacKenzie-Childs store in Aurora, NY
As you drive onto the property, you immediately see the Farmhouse. The working plant/studio is to the left of this house and the famous barn sale is held to the right.
This is the entryway to the small garden outside the store:
This garden has lots of their outdoor furniture and Courtly Checked umbrellas:
Many of the flowers are realizing that the colder weather is on its way and they have gone to sleep!
But there were still a few to enjoy…
...and beside this one lonely rose….
…was this spider with his Courtly Checked legs!!
The entrance of the store was filled with Poppies:
I thought the new Evergreen enamelware would be on display, but not til next week! The salesgirl brought out a few piece to show me:
The large platter would be perfect for your holiday desserts:
You can peek out of the many windows and doors in the shop and see the beautiful grounds, ponds and animals:
There is a room, where you can sit on benches and watch a video about M-C, and how their table wear goes from clay to the finished product. This display demonstrates the 5 steps:
One thing I love about this shop is the bathroom:
The colors are so pretty and cheery, and all the M-C patterns are displayed on the floor:
The door frame and moldings are all in tile:
Even the trash can is decorated, painted in Parchment:
Stop by later this week to see some of the table settings from the Farmhouse and Shop!
Do you have a favorite M-C piece?
