One of the great things about antique stores it that they are often located in the best buildings. I love getting to go into an old mill or barn, or as in this case, old turn of the 20th century stores. This mall is located in three joined buildings, all with the same arrangement of the upper floor being open in the middle like a balcony. Very little seems to have been done to these great old stores, and shopping in them is almost like stepping back in time.
I love running across this old print. It always makes me smile!
This shoe display was simply beautiful. It’s enough to make a person want to open a shop just so she could justify its purchase.
I collect these cardboard movie star hangers from the 1960s, but I passed on Sophia and Michael. The condition was pretty bad, but even worse, they were not priced. Had they been a very reasonable price, I’d have picked them up, but in an antique mall if an item is not priced then usually the person at the counter has to track down the seller to ask the price. It just was not worth the hassle, especially since there was a big chance I’d not want them anyway.
These were a set of old curtains. I loved the print, but hanging in windows does more than just fade fabric. It makes it brittle. Again, these were not priced, or I might have gotten them for pillows for the patio.
