Hello Alice, what a wonderful shop! I love everything, and from the looks of a couple of price tags, her prices look great as well! I have missed you, and Renoir of course! And hoped you are doing well... xoxo Julie Marie


Everything looks so lovely! I love the yellow chair. xoxox Happy weekend


I love Bristol, Spent many weekends going up to Canandaigua visiting friends at CCFL when we were in college and skiing at Bristol MT. I will deffinitely have to head back up there to visit 'Aged in the Hills' myself. Thank you for sharing such lovely place ;-)

Looks like you had a great time. I've never been too far from the city. mainly due to the lack of car. but I would love to travel more around NY State. I've got my eye on those trunks!

have a good weekend!

Beautiful shop. I wish I lived closer so I too could visit it and marvel at all of the goodies. :)

Thanks for the congrats on Gabe. From this post it sounds like you are really starting to get the itch. Your little one will someday have the sweetest nursery - they are so fun to decorate!

What a lovely store. Thanks for sharing.

I could use those adorable dog dishes. Only I might need one with extra large bowls.

p.s. you should go back for that charming yellow chair


Agreed- you should get the chair :)
Thanks for the beautiful tour!
Off to go do some treasure hunting...


What a lovely escape I just had visiting New York, within the blink of an eye. Thank you for sharing and giving me a peaceful distraction. Every time I click the button to go to your blog I know the visit will be delightful. Thank you , Alice


Great shop. Bristol, NY? Hmm I wonder how far it is from Boston, maybe a day trip is in order.

Love the suitcase dog bowl.


I bet you all had a ball there. She's got a lot of neat treasures. I got excited about everything just looking at the pictures.


What a wonderful visit! Thanks for sharing. I sure miss going antiquing...not much here in my area. :(


Thank you honey, I'm sending Cheryl the link here, she will be very pleased, i'm sure! I love that woman, she's a great friend and we have always had a lot of fun with our antiques.

Be sure to let all your friends know that they can visit her website or call her shop if they see something they want to purchase....don't worry Cheryl, I'll help you pack them!! haha

Pics are gorgeous but even they don't do that shop justice, you really must visit!!



Here is Chery's website, you can also see a full pic of the front of the building on it, I love the cobblestone!!


Happy shopping!


what a lovely shop! that might have to be a little daytrip for us this summer! thank you for sharing it with us. have a wonderful day, susan

Cheryl A. Squirrell

I'm the proprietor of the shop and Alice and Mom Janine recently came for a visit. Janine has been a long time antique lover and Alice has a wonderful artistic gift. Her work is incredible as she "see's" and shares her gift thru her 'looking glass' camera! Alice sees beauty in everyday surroundings and shows what is possible if you don't have the gift of vision! Both Janine and Alice enjoyed visiting and we shared suggestions and giggles as we roamed the rooms of the 1833 cobblestone! With Alice's 'looking glass' help - you can roam as well and hopefully you'll enjoy the tour or plan to visit. Love and Hugs Janine & Alice

Alice, I was blown away with your pictures of my mom's shop. You truly have an artistic eye and a natural talent for photography! The way you picked up the true essence of the shop from just a few items in the store was breathtaking. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing!

Thank you ALice for this lovely tour. What a great shop. I so love places like this. You captured some wonderful shots here. I always love seeing life through your lens!!!
I imagine that you and your mom had a blast out hunting and gathering together.

Dale Kowalski

Wow - I really enjoyed taking the "photo tour" of the shop. Now, I'll have to ride out to take a look in person. Beautiful!

Leah C

Looks like heaven to me:) Especially love those aqua doors...and the suitcases {sigh}!

Sheila R

Thanks for taking us on an antique adventure!


What a wonderful shop! I saw many things I would love to have! And oh my goodness, all those vintage baby things, so sweet! I am all about baby right now, too....we are getting a precious little bundle in January!!!!!! Our daughter is expecting our very first grandbaby and we are SOOOOOOOO thrilled!!!!! Every morning while drinking my coffee, I'm searching the net for pretty and elegant baby things to go in the nursery! We have already decided on and ordered the nursery bedding! Wow, it's going to be a looooong 7 months to wait for our little bundle to arrive, haha! You and Josh should go ahead and take the leap, it's sooooooo much fun, I promise!!!
Love and (((hugs)))


Beautiful stuff for sure. I would loose my mind in that store. I get a little overwhelmed as I end up wanting to buy so much and have a hard time choosing what I would MOST make use of.
I just spent 70$ on antique dishes (a various array) at a little antique store last weekend.)

Christina J.

I love shop owners who encourage photos. Why not? It's great publicity for their shop. I love your pics of the little dolls and baby toys, they're such cute little characters!
