There are antique shops everywhere.
For fun we hit one big place called The Emporium full of lots of individual booths. We weren’t planning to really buy anything for a couple of reasons: difficulty to transport it home on an airplane, not wanting extra stuff to pack-up and move in a few weeks, and after becoming a thrift-store visitor, I have a hard time paying the increased “authentic antique” mark-up.
Cute, but twice as much as you’d pay at the Salvation Army.
I loved all these chairs! The Chippendale at the top was painted pale robin’s egg blue and was child size! I also loved the variety from the upholstered Eastlake chair to the metal lawn chairs from the 50’s.
(Disclaimer – I only brought my little point and shoot camera and the
lighting wasn’t great to begin with, so the pictures don’t do this
bed cover – or any of this stuff – justice.)
I would be equally happy to give each one of them a loving home.And I loved the colors in this star quilt.
I love this pattern, but always wonder if I’d have the patience to make it.We didn’t walk away from all these temptations totally empty handed.
My girls were dying to each take home a treasure, so after much deliberation we found these two mini butter-pat plates. We decided they would be perfect for their Samantha and Nellie dolls and they would be much easier to transport home on the airplane.
