Antique Shop Barn Charm

A few weeks ago, Motor Man and I went to a boat race in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on a Saturday morning. We left the boat race later that day and headed to a car race in Kenly, NC.

Along the way, near Hertford, we passed this barn turned antique/craft shop.

I’m guessing the building WAS a barn in a former life, because of the nearby silo.

The signs on the building look weathered, so I’m not sure the antique shop is still in business.  Obviously it wasn’t open the day we were in town.

  1. Interesting…looks a bit lonely there in the field…..wonder what treasures (or not!) were inside the doors!

  2. A closed antique shop is not a good sign for you! But good for photographing.

  3. Interesting…but even more interesting if they were still open with goodies for you to explore!

  4. These are probably just the places the “Junk Gypsies” on HGTV on Saturdays probably love to explore.

  5. love the sky … great views. (:

  6. I see alot of barns turned antique/gift shops, good way to utilize them

  7. Dang! it is green there!! Cool silo and the clouds look wonderful! Too bad it wasn’t open. I think it is a very charming barn.

  8. I, too, wonder if it is still open. I’d love to explore a place like that.

  9. I would love to know just what this one was used for–its very interesting.

  10. Now THAT’S a charming barn!! I bet it’s fun inside (if the shop is still open!) We found a covered bridge that had been turned into a gift shop last summer…it was very fun!

  11. Great Picture and I too would like to travel through the doors and explore. The history of buildings is fun!

  12. This is the best way to re-purpose a beautiful old barn!

  13. it is a cute little barn-turned-shoppe. 🙂

  14. A great transformation … I imagine that if it is still in business, you’ll probably find out. And I imagine you’d also visit & have a look 😉

  15. Pretty little (dairy?) barn..also looked like it was a pretty day too – nice sky.

  16. It’s fun to see barns restored and used in another way. I think it adds character to the business and keeps history alive in the community.

  17. Now that’s a charming barn. I wonder too if there were neat treasures inside.

  18. I love it!

  19. I love how some of the barns are still useful in other ways! Love the green grass!!

  20. I saw a barn being used as an antique shop in my travels, too. I should have gone back to see if it was open.
