Road Trip

 My sister and brother-in-law are back visiting.  It was misting and cold today, so we decided to go on a road trip to Lexington, Virginia, where there are two very large Antique Malls ~ THE ANTIQUE MALL and DUKE'S LEXINGTON ANTIQUE CENTER.  It was fun.  They were both VERY large and there was much to see.  We would have to go back in order to see everything.  It would be easy to spend almost an entire day in each one.  Duke's was very interesting and museum-like.  There were life size things all around the mall and hanging from the ceiling.  Of course I had to take photos to share with you.  Enjoy!!

 This guy is solid heavy cast iron.  When you lifted his arm, his mouth would open and his eyes would bulge out.  Creepy, but great!

 Mr. Gargoyle was way in the back of the mall, very close to the high ceiling, watching over things.  I suppose shoplifters would be a good snack for him.  

 You probably can't tell in this photo, but this guy was VERY LARGE!!  I was not tempted to hug him. 

 Several times I lost sight of Pat, Jim, and Mom.  This guy was helping me look for them.
 You might have to click on this photo to enlarge in order to see the foot in his mouth.  
 Just swinging up there minding her own business.


 Not one of these creatures looked real happy about hanging 
around.
 


 He's not looking too happy even though Easter is right around the corner.  He is the biggest bunny I've ever seen.
This must be Rudolph's resting stop after a long flight in December.

Even the restroom doors were interesting.

There was much more to see and photograph.  Next visit!!!!
