Antique-ing

Yesterday, I went antique shopping for the first time. I’ve never had a reason to go before… However, my friend Tiffany always wanted to go inside this one antique store, so we finally did.

I didn’t expect so much stuff inside:

antique shop forks spoons silverware

Fancy silverware

vintage forks spoons silverware

shells decoration

Stacks upon stacks of shells.

I wondered who would buy this stuff; they all looked like junk to me. But as the saying goes – “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” And maybe we’re all hoarders at heart. ❤

I also wondered how old some of these things were. They look like they could’ve come from the 1800’s!

vintage postcards prayer book

Suuuper antique-looking here.

vintage saxophone music instrument

I really liked this old sax. I wonder who played it, and what places has it seen?

old vintage antique clock book

vintage antique old voltmeter lamp

Yup, that is exactly what it looks like – an old-school voltmeter! It could probably belong in my vibrations class’s lab though, seeing how everything in that lab is outdated anyway…

vintage hats shop

Spot the photographer!

Next door, at Tin Roof Antiques:

mini pool table vintage antique

Mini pool table. Behind, it a vintage telephone! :O

There stores were a feast for the eyes. There were just so many things to look at – old postcards, board games, model cars, models, clothes, jewelry, fabric, the list goes on. Have you ever been antique shopping (antique-ing)? What kinds of cools things have you found?

Thanks for reading!
