Of Old And Antique
|Seriously who collects cans? If you know someone who does please tell me!|
|A beautiful old sewing machine.... I always wonder at the story behind these sort of things|
|I put my hand into this bowl of buttons and ran my fingers through the buttons, so many and all so different.|
|There were shelves of lace and whatever you call the stuff in this photo.|
|This would be perfect for a newborn shoot..... if it were not so expensive.|
|I saw this one first then the one below and had to laugh.|
|There were more drawers full of silver, doilies, table runners and such things.|
|I just could not stop looking at these pots on the stairs.....and upstairs there was even more!!|
|One room had mostly just clothing in it.|
|Pianola rolls. I have once seen a pianola played at out second cousins I think....|
|Very old copy of one of the Billabong books. These are so good!|
|I think I have the same edition of Wings Above Billabong.... except I had to stick it together with superglue......|
|Really cool suitcases.|
|I had to laugh at this.... A music stand! It looks just like the ones we have at church..... except maybe a little more sturdy...|
|I have some books just like the ones down the bottom of this photo too.|
|These cups were just so green and pretty.|
|I think some of these are hat boxes.|
|For these rather cool hats...|
|... and these hats.|
|Then back down the stairs,|
|past the jars again,|
|and then after about an hour I hurried home.|
I almost did not go into the shop that day, I just happened to drive past it and having nothing I had to do right then. I turned down the next road and went around the block and into the carpark of the shop. I got my camera and hid it under my jumper and ran out through the rain. I am so glad I did do that then, and considering the photos are all taken indoors and on an overcast day they are rather good, considering. Still, I mean to go back, with my sisters, and take photos again on a bright sunny day.... or at least another day, don't know if I shall post about that then but we shall see. I hope you enjoyed the photos and that you actually got to the end of this post!
Are there any small/not so small stores in your town?
You never know what is hidden there until you look!
Please take on the challenge!
