J/J's Antiques Ranch Shop

 Taking you on a  quick tour of a new place we visited Tuesday.
My sweet fella has been carting me all around
since I hurt my neck and back and cannot pick things up yet.
Shopping is really not his thing,
so this is really sacrificial love for him.

This place is in Scio, a bit over an hour from our place in Eugene.
This is the cute 'gate' where you pull in.

 This was the ceiling in the 2nd room we went in to.
This room had games, books, and old toys...
 This was an adorable little garden area out back. little 3 walled covered area,
sweet little patio table and chairs... Pictures do not do it justice at all.

My sweet fella checking things out for me.

 cute cart I thought about getting.
somehow did not end up with it.
Our shop is so full right now, I do not know where I would put it anyway.
 more stuff.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much stuff this pace has.
Several outbuildings, a barn..
all crammed to the brim with 30 years of treasures....
Well displayed by the daughters of the owner.
It is a real family affair.
 lots of garden things....wonderful ideas..
rust too!!!!  =)
 The Barn....full and upstairs too.
They built this several years ago as all the buildings were full.
My eperience is, you fill whatever space you have,
 and they did.  =)
 more cuteness and outdoor treasures.
 This is the 'bathroom'.
Yes, an outhouse. A real outhouse!
Had not used one of these for years.....
but since we were there 3 1/2 hours I did get to see inside this one. =)
 one of the buildings.....it went on and on and on.
There were doors everywhere, one room lead to another..
and isle after isle of treasures.
 see all those buildings??? full!!!
This is another little garden section.
OK, now the details so you can go visit if you are in Oregon:

Looks like an interesting place! I liked your comment about filling the space you have available - that's so true! Now I'm trying to get rid of stuff & amazed at how much there is here!

Now that looks like a fun place to do some serious shopping! Too bad it's so far from Oklahoma ;/
