Come Shop with Me

Want to come along on a vintage shopping adventure?  My mom was visiting for a few days last weekend, so of course, we had to spend some quality junking time together.  Unfortunately, there wasn't anything exciting happening with the yard sales or estate sales, so off to the antique mall we went.  After our annual "drop and run" visit with the tax man, we headed over to The Antique Warehouse for a quick look around before lunch.  Well, lunch didn't happen until after 3:00 because we got caught up in their newly expanded warehouse annex.  Kind of hard to shop with a growling stomach, but it was worth it.

These drawers would have come home with me if I didn't already have a similar set.

I must have spent 15 minutes digging through these rusty letters to come up with MST.
  That is a T isn't it?  The B sticking out of the box was waving at me, so it came home with
 me also.

Made in the USA.  Just one more reason to buy them.


Oh my!




Too cute.  Not sure what it's hauling though.

How's this for a plate rack?


My very first selfie.

Besties.

How sweet is this?

I forgot to go back and take a second look at this wheel.  With a little tweaking, wouldn't it make a great necklace display? 





Loved everything in this space. 

I almost bought these little drawers.

Then I spotted these just across the hall.  They're green, they're metal, they're cool, and they're full of little treasures already.  What else did I buy?  A few packs of buttons, two vintage towel bars, old paint brushes, four rusty metal letters, three wire shelves, several pieces of silverware for stamping, and some rusty hinges.  The damages could have been much worse considering we were in here for well over two hours.

  6. No growling stomach would have kept me from visiting that antique mall with you, Betsy. There are so many things to love, including the letters, the drawers, the wheel, some baskets and more. What a great place to shop.
    Have a wonderful week!

  9. I want to go to that shop. I love everything I saw, I could live there. Unfortunately we don't have a place like that in the Detroit area. At least not one that has decent prices. Those letters would have been more than double that price. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Your selfie is so classic - I mean, gosh, it kind of sums you up, does it not? Perhaps it should be a permanent part of your blog!

  15. 'Oh My' is right! I was actually drooling as I scrolled down through the photos - what fun! Love the letters you bought and I agree with you on the 'favorite' booth. That grill dish rack was the best! Very cute selfie, by the way. Happy St. Patrick's Day! xo Karen

  17. I would give up food for days to spend time in this heaven of all things junk-tastic! I am always looking for some place to place my smalls in my booth. Saw the solution right here - FILE CABINETS! What a clever idea. Just file all my laces and trims and buttons.

  19. Oh, I am going to have to make a point to visit next time I'm there; a good friend used to live in Salida. (Your pictures turned out so much nicer than the ones I took on my cell phone in the dark market!)

    Sounds like you scored.
    A girl after my own heart. I LOVE flea markets and antique malls!!!! I can't seem to stay away.
    LOL. I know what you mean about the damage could be worse! It's hard to control myself. Now that the weather is getting better.... look out... here I come.
    Thanks for sharing.

  24. Thanks for bringing me along on the Shopping Adventure... I too liked the Drawers in Image #1 and the Vintage Luggage Drawers, which would have matched some Luggage I already have a Collection of.

  29. I love love love shopping in this kind of shop...and that last photo of the A B C drawers would have come home with me, for sure. :)

  30. You find the coolest stuff. I would love those first drawers you showed. I would also have bought the letters.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sounds like you had a great time with your mom. I so wish I could spend time with mine, and I love to hear stories such as yours where people still appreciate their mamas.
    Love your new letters, and those useful storage boxes with drawers.
    I can save you some time and money in reference to the jewelry display with the wheel. I've already created jewelry displays using that design, and have found much to my dismay cannot be a good idea. In 2009, when I actually first created my wheel style displays, I found that people would not open up the jewelry clasps and take that jewelry off of the wheel, in order to try it on or purchase it. Just trying to save you some money effort and time spent to create something that I have already found doesn't work.

  32. Beautiful, I love the creative displays!

  33. Hi Betsy, That Antique Warehouse is my most favorite one. I always make my husband stop when we are in the area. I love the booth with all the buttons, trims, drawers full of old hardware. Happy Thoughts #22 is her booth. You do such gorgeous work so I am going to have to follow your blog.
    Hugs,
    Diana
