This Old Church is a What?

My husband and I flew into Chicago in September of this past year to attend his 50th High School reunion. His school was on the south side of Chicago but, the reunion was held in Naperville, Illinois.
Naperville, and the surrounding area, is beautiful! The leaves were starting to turn and we were constantly surrounded by the golden colors of fall. We would  get in the car and start hunting for treasures in the many surrounding villages.

This former church was the most interesting resale shop that we found on our excursions. It is in Batavia, Illinois. The choir loft was crammed with old wooden frames, fence posts, and architectural findings.
The Sanctuary held vintage clothing and furniture, nicely displayed and reasonably priced.
Then, we went down to the basement! Aisle after aisle of everything under the sun! Pyrex, vintage toasters, tool boxes filled with antique tools, fishing lures, lamps and on and on. We were in Vintage Heaven in a former church! I wished we had our Jeep so we could load it up and drive back to California. Unfortunately the airlines frown on antique Victrolas taking up space. We also left behind a great little dressing table and chair, and a Hoosier. Airlines can be so fussy.
We walked around Batavia and explored numerous other shops but, I think the Church was my favorite.
I felt like we were American Pickers!
