Road Show - Day Two

On the second day of our trip, yard sale fever was upon us, and we rose early to beat the heat. Or so we hoped! Despite the blazing sun, we stopped at several yard sales and found a few treasures. By mid morning we were wilting, dishevelled, and desperate for air conditioning!  We decided to call it a day on the yard sales, and blazed a trail to the little town of Hazel, KY.  Nestled on the KY/TN border, Hazel is a tiny little mecca for antiques lovers, with several stores lining the main street, and tons of southern charm!
Our first priority was lunch (of course!) so we were delighted to find the Magnolia Tea Room as soon as we arrived. Our server recommended the House Almond Lemon Iced Tea, and it was sheer nectar! I promptly downed two glasses, and wished I could buy it by the gallon! Lunch was a scrumptious chicken salad sandwich followed by a luscious triple layer chocolate cake for dessert. Yum! Next time, we plan to make reservations for high tea in the afternoon.
We shopped all afternoon, and still couldn't visit every store! We saved the largest store, Charlie's Antique Mall, for last. This store is HUGE! And it has a retro soda fountain inside! I was so tired that I could only make it through a fraction of the booths. So we'll definitely be returning to Hazel! Exhausted but happy, we left Hazel in the late afternoon and headed to our next destination. Tune in tomorrow for the final installment of this episode of Antique Road Show - Serendipity Style!
