A peek into Grove & Main

inspiration window shopping

DSC00566It all started when I peeked into this lovely shop window one evening.

Windows of Inspiration

DSC00566I just had to go back when the shop was open, and I wasn't disappointed.  I thought I might take you dreaming on this Pink Saturday.


DSC00566Grove & Main Antiques is located on Main Street in Peterborough, New Hampshire.


DSC00566The shop owner, Jane Gallagher creates a shop filled to the brim with Antiques, finds created by local artisans, and French wares in every nook and cranny.  Here's a browse of inspiration:










DSC00563I have to mention that once inside,

DSC00571you are invited to enter a doorway of inspiration to view a beautiful art gallery with a bed made up in the dreamiest linens and things.





DSC00566Whether you want some beautiful French inspired finds,



DSC00570or soaps, candles and Vintage linens,


DSC00569There is a little something for everyone.


DSC00566Especially inspiration.



DSC00566So, if you are in Peterborough, New Hampshire, at Brimfield's Antique Market this May. or just want to contact Jane if you see something here that tickles your fancy, Grove & Main is on Facebook .


DSC00566I hope that you have a lovely Pink Saturday and weekend.  Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting another fun Pink Saturday, so please stop by and visit all the pink posts.

P.S.   I am off today to go on an art date with some of my favorite people.   If you want to see what keeps me sane, please stop by and visit my precious friend Joyce and peek at our art date.  Don't get scared, I let my hair go gray, and I love it.

Yes, sooooo much inspiration. I've seen at least three things that I would love right here in my own home. Now I'm wondering how long a drive it would be to get to Peterborough, New Hampshire. Ha! (I adore that little rabbit soft sculpture for example.)

Have a sweet weekend, Karen...

What a wonderful shop! I wish I was there strolling through it with you Karen. I loved that white linen pillow with the red toile center that is on the bed.

Happy Pink Saturday!


Miss Char said...

Oh my heart goes pitter patter as I look at all your beautiful photos. I was in this shop once and was beside myself with all the wonderful treasures and the fact that there was no watch to buy the shop out and take it home on the plane. Thanks so much for sharing.

Sarah said...

Oh, this is my favorite kind of shop ~ antiques, local art, and French wares. What's not to admire about this combination? Thanks for sharing this wonderful treasure. I've made a note in my travel files. One never knows when Peterborough, NH is in the future. ~ Sarah

Hi Karen! What a wonderful shop! I could get lost in there for days. Of course, that pink glass lamp called out to me. I hope you had fun at your art day. My art is definitely what keeps me sane! Happy Pink Saturday. Hugs, Terri

Oh Karen, here I am again at this lovely post that inspires the faery tale in ANYONE who has an ounce of faith; I love what G.K. Chesterton said, the renowned Catholic and learned writer: "Fairy tales are more than true not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be BEATEN!" We can do it...we can beat the DRAGON of the blasé and lifeless life and do what Christ did....love beyond......what a world we could have, non? THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISITS...they really mean a lot to me!!!! Anita

Casey said...

What a beautiful shop Karen. I wish I could have been there with you. I see so many things I would love to have. Thank you for sharing this delightful post! I hope you are having a blissful and joyful Sunday dear friend.


Dolores said...

I want to go there!!!! I love the apothecary cabinet.... I love all the little drawers.... actually I'd take anything in this wonderful shoppe.

Hello Karen, it's been WAY too long. I am trying to mend my ways of being a horrible commentor and get back in touch with those I've missed in my wayard ways. I used to be SO good at it but I tell you sometimes it's my intention and then I get to painting or work on projects or home chores....well it all sounds like excuses. I decided since May is month of new blooms I would try to blossom in to a better blogging friend.

That antique store looks divine! we went to a flea market yesterday and I was amazed to see how many are carrying French or French-inspired goods. Especially linens, so lovely yet SO pricey!
I hope you enjoyed your art date..we all need times like that of creating with friends.

Can't believe how long it has been since I have caught up on your blog. Life just seems to get crazy busy way too often.
What a beautiful shop you have shown us, so beautifully set up.
Take care

So much inspiration abounds just by looking at the delightful photos you have shared with us. I am originally from Albany, NY and so miss Vt and New Hampshire, especially in the Fall. If we get back to the NE anytime soon, I will see if we can spend some time in this lovely area and this awesome shop. Blessings.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Karen.

Girl, this looks like just the kind of shop I love. I saw something tempting in every photo you shared. I certainly wish I could go there with you.
