2nd Time Around: Pink Nellie-new Vintage Shop in Town!

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

I am always looking for new places to shop for vintage and antique items, and we have a great new place in Meridian called Pink Nellie! Actually, I met Linda (her real name) at the 45 Flea Market and Antiques over a year ago where she had a booth when she first moved to Meridian. She has been doing this all her life and inherited her love of old things from her mother, Nellie. Linda loves pink so the logical name for her new shop was “Pink Nellie!”
Recently a house became available on 23rd avenue in Meridian right behind Ed Chaney Tires and one block off 22nd Avenue…and you guessed it the house was pink! Linda had been considering her own shop for a while and this seemed to be the perfect time and place.
So, with the help of her husband they moved her massive inventory to the new shop- Pink Nellie!

I visited there recently with my friend Karen and took some pictures to show you how adorable her shop is!

Pink Nellie is a place I would love to visit. I never tire of 'the hunt' and the thrill of a found treasure. I wish I lived closer Diane. I hope their new business is a big success.

Happy Labor Day. I hope you had fun.
Hugs, Jeanne

What a cute store, Diane! It sounds like a dream coem true for Linda.

I'm doing well--busy times here planning my daughter's spring wedding. I went out to Colorado to help her shop for her wedding dress..luckily she found her dream dress pretty quickly!

How to get flatter stomach

Oh, how much fun! I know 'books' shouldn't be judged by their cover, but this just further proves you should! So adorably charming, it beckons you to come in! (Wish I could.)

Love your wicker purchase. It will look good painted white or black but I'm more prone to white. Ya know I live in Citronelle and may just take a trip up and visit these ladies. Do you have a shop? If so give me the address.
