On the inside looking out.....


Petticoat Lane in Subiaco is one of my favorite places to browse for interesting little bits and pieces from times gone by.... From silver teaspoons to fireplaces, rocking 'zebras' to ballet tutus, you can pretty much find all that is old and intriguing. Is that a Spode potty I spy in the window or perhaps it's a soup tureen.....!! Friday has come around again and we have rain in Perth..HALLELUJAH....!

  1. Seems like we both posted pics looking out through windows today. I bet there is some really interesting stuff in that shop, along with ancient memories.

  3. That first photo is a different take on a theme...very nice! Lois Anne likes these kinds of shops. We have several small towns around here that specialize in antique shops. Most of their stuff is way too expensive, though...hope you get your rain!

  6. Stores like this can be fun to visit. These days I visit them less, and find less and less than I used to. Does that say something about the stores or about me?

  14. The kind of shop where I can spend hours.. and some money! :o)There's always a treasure waiting to be found.

  15. Voilà un magasin où il y a de quoi regarder!... Quand il pleut, on peut s'occuper agréablement, et peut-être acheter un objet qui ne servira jamais... :-)
    Bonne journée, Gracie!

  16. The name in itself is an invitation! I think I'd go crazy in there! :-)

  17. What a pretty place to browse for interesting little things.... I know someone who would spend days here :))

  20. My kind of shop....that and thrift shops.

  21. Tureen and potty are as different as a butter churn and potty. Ah, well, not so different to my baby brother. Butter was never churned again.

  22. I like to browse there, great photos.

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh, yes, we two could have a rollicking good time together, grace.

  24. I like the window display, a lot more orderly than my tressle tables of antiques stacked high!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I guess you can find almost everything there...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love shops like that .. and rain on a Friday is a good thing, hopefully it will cool off the weekend for you ..

  27. Antique stores must think that they need to compete to have the most merchandise in their spaces. Maybe that adds to the sense of discovery of a treasure.

  28. oh! what a nice quaint shop, no wonder you like it. ^0^
    i love the the ballerina outfit and the one beside it,
    for the love of me, i can't seem to remember what it's called. ^0^
    i could stay there for hours browsing and maybe finding something to take home.
    have a great weekend ahead to you dear.

  29. I've just scheduled a very similar post for tomorrow! A photo taken 2 weeks ago while shopping with my Mum! :-)

  30. Now I like that little dress...although I'm not a ballerina. Looks like a fun place to look around and rain sounds devine!

  31. What a gorgeous bric-a-brac shop jam packed with stuff! I love it and could easily spend an afternoon in there .......with a good coffee after ... Bien sur!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Amazing what you can find in places like that, Grace. We have a few here and it's always fun browsing there - the stuff for sale is often outrageously priced, but occasionally you can pick up a good buy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Looks like you can find anything and everything here! :D

  34. Oh we were on the same page yesterday. I love this place. I have a few here that I haunt and draw from when my coffers get low.

  35. Now you're talking my language. We call them footbaths, they're usually from Staffordshire, are incredibly expensive, and people use them for flower display. Of course, you have to have a large room for it to look in scale. Which I don't; so I just admire.

  36. Ohhhh, I think I could spend a lot of time in here!

    ReplyDelete
  37. So much to explore! I like these places.
