Treasures

We passed this place in 2010, but we have not passed it since, though I do know and remember where it is at.  I think  2010 is the year American Pickers started..
I do love the old gas pumps...and the Texaco sign.  It is fun to look at all that is here, wondering all the time what is inside both buildings.

Linking to Tom's Tuesday's Treasures.

I love those old signs and the gas pumps too.
The Pickers would give an arm and a leg for those signs.

Great treasure, Rose and I'm sure there are lots more treasures inside! We love American Pickers - Mike and Frank would buy those old signs for sure!

What a treasure that is, Rose. And wouldn't it be fun to see inside. The exterior is a delight!

Hello Rose, great finds. I love the old signs and gas statons. It all looks very Americana! Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

What a great find. My in-laws always had a gas pump in their yard but it was a working one.

Both are fine catches for this special day in the week. I like seeing the old time pumps and signs too.

Rose, thanks for sharing this slice of Texaco Heaven. I pass by a similar place a few times a year. Places like this sure are fun, now you hurry back soon.

Rose...This is the cutest place. what a wonderful collection of old filling station memorabilia.I would be curious to know what is inside, too. Was it open to the public when you went by it?

CountryMum said...

What a delightful place. All the memorabilia is wonderful.

Wow...what a great place that someone has put a lot of work into to restore it back to like was when it was new! Love places like this!

Glad to know where the restrooms are. Oh, wait! They're not there?!

I am willing to bet there are plenty more treasures inside these buildings, found, carefully wrapped and visited for future use or trading purposes!
Really nice collection of petroliana.

We watch the Pickers show quite often. - I do like those old gas pumps and I find some of the signs quite fascinating too.
