Tea Cup Tuesday-Virtual Antique Shopping at SuzAnna's

Hello All!

Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!
How about a trip to SuzAnna's Antiques?
A wonderful place where I find 
some of my favorite treasures,
especially tea related antiques.

A few years back I found these wonderful French cups...

I was so happy to see there were five of them!
And at a great price too!

This lovely design is on the side of the cup.

 Interesting backstamps!
Some stamped and some incised. 
The orange is for the shop it was created for ,
The blue is the maker,
and there are incised marks underneath
that I can not read.
Ruby Lane has a good page on identifying Sevres Porcelain.
It is very possible that these are not truly Sevres.

Vintage Village has a number of paces to shop...

Suzanne's is the largest one,
and the first shop I will share this week...
it is chock full of lovlies!

 It is always a treat to poke around each room...

SuzAnna's includes many vendors so there is plenty of variety.

Beautiful lavender transferware!

We had an afghan just like this one in my childhood home.
A trip through Suzanne's always brings back memories.

There are nooks and corners to explore...
and tables artfully decorated.

Hutches full of china...

Wonderful way to show off quilts, linens, tablecloths....

 Lots of vintage clothing and  textiles.
I have found many good things in this corner...
especially in this basket : )


So much to see!

A fall themed tea cup for $6.

Bavarian...I can't make out the word below...
do any of you recognize it?

There are fall touches everywhere...putting me in the mood for Thanksgiving.

This sweet little cup did not have a backstamp.

The jewelry room is full of all kinds of treasures...
and I love the vintage Christmas balls hanging from the ceiling.

The owner, SuzAnna, is a very kind woman. 
Everyone there is helpful and excited about you
finding something you love. 

I have always had a a good and welcome experience here. 

Thank you SuzAnna!

This is a loooonnnnnng post for me, 
I hope you enjoyed our shopping trip.
Now that it is November, 
I am looking for thoughtful gifts...
and this is a favorite place to find them. 

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Hi Terri, this is my kind of shop. If only I live close to Suzanna's shop, I would be her regular customer. So, what did you get from there?

Hope you have a good week

Ruthie Miller said...

Dear Terri,
Oh boy, that is my kind of place. What fun to browse through, even if not buying anything, it is worth the nostalgic trip.
I had the same afghan growing up and even have one now with a few holes... Loved the Christmas balls hanging from the ceiling at the jewelry stall. Hutches full of china, old quilts...ah, be still by heart. I swooned over the purple transfer ware.
Pea green, Ruthie

Sylvia said...

What a pretty shop, I would love to spend a few hours in there.

Linda Kunsman said...

thanks so much for that awesome shopping trip-esp. since it saved me lots of money -lol!! Honestly I could get in so much trouble there. I used to make afghans like the granny square one hanging on the chair. And looky, I've finally linked up and joined the tea party :)

Maria said...

Hello Terri, I discovered your blog today and it's my first time to join your TeaCup Tuesday linky party. I love this theme cause I'm a tea lover :D This is great for me to showcase the teacup postcards I've received.

I love this feature entry you have for SuzAnna's Antiques. I would have loved visiting her store, it would be awesome for sure to see it for real! So many lovely and adorable items.

Have a great week!

loudowning54 said...

My kind of place for sure. I have family in NC and my best friend moved to Clayton, NC this year. Looks like I need to visit her soon. Thanks for your lovely pictures.

Karen said...

Hi Terri,
I would love to visit SuzAnna's store. I saw many things that I would want. I am wondering where it is and if it is too far to visit from my home in B.C. Have a wonderful week! Take care,

sharon said...

Be still my heart! I could spend an entire day in this shop, this is my kind of shop, thank you so much for taking us along!

Christine LeFever said...

Very lovely! I'll take the mulberry transferware. So beautiful. Love the ornaments hanging down.

Michelle said...

Hi Terri,

Wow, what an amazing shop! I love stores like this. The lavender transferware is so pretty.

The backstamp looks like it says Jaeger Co underneath Bavaria.

Happy Tuesday,

Sugar Lump Studios said...

What an amazing place to go and shop! I could spend hours in there - and my soul would be quite content just taking it all in. Happy November to you Terri - I am feeling more than guilty as I owe you an email...hoping to get to that this week...thinking of you girl! :)


Dorthe said...

Dear Terri,
How lucky you are having such places to spend some wonderful hours, looking and shopping . I can see only from your pictures ,that there is beautiful things for everyone to wish for, and that I would LOVE spending hours there.
Hugs from Dorthe

Bernideen said...

What a fun shop. I love the china and old linens best. This last week I was at my Mom's in Vrginia for her funeral and I washed several afghans just like the one you show. One I put back on her bed. This shop looks wonderful!

Maria Andrade said...

Thanks, Terri, for letting us accompany you on this tour of such an interesting shop! Lots of things to see...and to buy!
Your gilded tea cups are very elegant, very French-like, whether they are Sévres or not.
As to the name on the Bavarian cup, it looks Jaeger to me, a German maker I know of, but I believe that Johanna can be more helpful...
Thanks for hosting this lovely tea.

Susan said...

Hi Terri....WOW WOW WOW What a delightful place to visit. Thanks for all the wonderful photos, too, and for taking us along! fun fun fun Susan

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I can't help with Bavarian china, but I read in the comment that you had help.
As for the French stamp, the double L in a cercle looks exactly like the Sevres marks used during Louis-Philippe's reign and after, from 1834 and later. From here I can't say for sure, of course, but maybe you can have a look on that amazing website that helps me with the marks on my china: http://www.oldandsold.com/pottery/france11.shtml
Also, the name in orange is the name of the pattern according to me, I might be wrong though as I don't personally own any Sevres Porcelain and it stands for "Château de Fontainebleau".
I believe those cups were an amazing find, they are lovely, authentic or not.

I hope this link would be able to help you:
scroll down to see aprox. the same mark.
I would love to go and see the shop you showed us, a real treasure, unfurtunately I don't live in the US ....
Always love to see your teacups and the explanation you give.

Thanks! Yolanda

The Charm of Home said...

SuzAnna's looks wonderful and I could spend hours enjoying everything. I like how you are searching for "thoughtful" gifts. Enjoy November and all things to be grateful for. Joyful Bliss Dear...

suziqu's thread works said...

Oh Terri one day if ever I come visiting you will have to put this shop on your list. What gorgeous white and gold cups and saucers.
I don't think I have ever seen lavender transfer ware and I did spot some silver plated goodness in a lovely pot!
You are such a lucky girl to have these shops nearby! Makes me feel like I'm living on a desert island but that's OK cause I can get on with my creating.
Love and hugs to you,

Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Hi Terri,

Have a lovely day.

Cinderella Moments said...

That shop is adorable. I love the remnants of paint on the wood boards. So many good stuff in there too. I can see why you love spending time in there.
The cups are gorgeous and sophisticated. Love them.

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Terri,
sorry, that I come so late. What a fun to visit this store. The French tea cups are so interesting with the backstamps. There are so many nice things more to see (and to buy!). Thank you for sharing and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hola Terri
Una maravilla esa tienda de antigüedades, yo me perdería en ella con todas las cosas preciosas que hay: tazas, manteles, mantas tejidas ganchillo... Todo maravilloso.
Un beso grande querida amiga.
