About Me

I live in the small town of Lawrenceburg, TN,  which is about two hours south of Nashville.  I'm Mother to 2 wonderful sons and MiMi to 5 precious grandkids. I have a small gift and antiques shop, an ebay store and sometimes sneak away to go pickin' to keep the shop well stocked. Come along with me. We'll jump in my old red truck and travel the backroads of Tennessee and Alabama lookin' for treasures that we can repaint or repurpose, then bring into the shop. It's always fun to see the expressions on faces and hear comments that are made about pieces I've found. And, hopefully some of those folks will adopt some of the treasures I've found and give them a good home. Contact me anytime at PICKINandPAINTIN@gmail.com AND be sure to visit my shop's FACEBOOK page........... Candy's Memories http://www.facebook.com/pages/Candys-Memories-Gifts-Antiques/285806776126
