If you have some time around the first weekend in May you may want to consider a shuffle off to Buffalo. It can be shabotage heaven. I have tried to assemble a list of the numerous shopping locations when you come to Buffalo. This is neither comprehensive nor all-inclusive, just what I was able to pull off the top of my head.
Buffalo Nickel (Donna) is a traditional antique store with a lot of shabby (not shady) contributors;
Second Hand Rose (Rose & Barb) the first of the occasional shops in Buffalo with a more cabiny, rustic and funky sort of edge to its shabotaged fare;
This & That (Myrna) 2 floors with lots of furniture and plenty of material for your shabotage projects;
Sweet Salvage (Donna, Pat & Tamera) in-the-rough and architectural salvage;
Barn Chix (Dawn) newly expanded shop with plenty of shabby and a variety of styles expressed by their large dealer base;
The Porch and Atelier (Teresa) 2 floors in the 1900 post office building, plenty of style with a French flair (and a bunch of Hogs in the middle of The Porch);
Behind the Picket Fence (Jane) general stuff with a thrift shop bent;
Three Sisters (Ann) two floors of good finds and shabby stuff;
Yesterday's Charm (Marge) great looking pieces in the old bait shop (but nothing fishy here);
Emmy Lynn's, kids clothes,
Lillian's, funky purses and accessories; and
Annie's Attic (Annie) another large traditional multi-dealer shop with lots of interesting stuff.
Maple Lake Antiques (Diana) is 5 miles west of Buffalo on Highway 55. It is a traditional mutli-dealer shop with good furniture and good deals (and more than its share of Hogs, with Russell, Steve and I all herding swine).
There are plenty of places to eat, a few to drink and most of the fast food chains to refuel during your visit. Hope that some of you can make the Sales in Buffalo.
