A visit with vintage
I made a quick breeze through a local vintage marketplace yesterday; this was necessary since my husband and son were along. If you asked them, they would not have described it as a quick breeze through but, trust me, it was! I took some photos so you could come along with me.
Seriously -- after all these years of blogging, that's how I feel when I'm in a store and see a pretty sight: that I should photograph it and bring you all along.
There was lots of this pretty blue.
I love these buttons on Bingo cards.
Here's a different mannequin/dress form than I am used to seeing!
A display of license plates on a shelf that I found rather artistic.
How cute is this framed print? It's one I'd never seen before but was $65 so it stayed behind.
This antique store has an indoor flea market vibe.
I really get a kick out of these displays of collections!
I'll take a pink one!
This lavender chest was EYE-CATCHING!
As was this piggy bank -- it's the size of a cookie jar!
(This buffalo is how you can tell we're in Colorado.)
Lots of scales and industrial-looking stuff, which I love.
This cherub lamp made me laugh -- doesn't the little guy look distraught to be on that gaudy gold lamp?
Pretty pink paisley.
There was plenty of Easter going on in the shop.
Some of the needlepoint I saw:
this pair of needlepoints with a beach cottage scene; I don't think I've ever seen any just like them...
and this wonderful tapestry, still on its frame and unfinished. What a lot of work!
