Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium

While visiting the East, I had the opportunity to drop in on Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium, in Amherst N.S.

I first heard about Mrs. P's on Karen's blog, earlier this year. Beth, the owner, put together the kit that I used to make my Maritime Beauty at Spring Retreat.  Beth got her store open, earlier this month, and I was so pleased to be able to actually visit.

The store is on a heritage building at 50 Victoria Street, in Amherst.

Beth has filled it with interesting antiques and an eclectic mix of fabrics.

The mirrored counter used to be in a barbershop!

I love this chair!

This fabric tickled me, although I couldn't think of an excuse to buy some. It is A Ghastlie Holiday, by Alexander Henry. The cat is so funny. I may end up with some yet!

Beth is a pharmacist and has a collection of antiques from the pharmacy that was originally owned by Sir Charles Tupper.
Mrs. P's is not your average quilt shop. You can bet I will return!

Meanwhile, if you want to see what is happening at Mrs. P's check out her blog.

I hear her web site is coming soon!
