From wedding dresses to tam o'shanters..

Whenever I enter an 'antique' shop the expression 'one man's junk is another man's treasure' comes to mind, I don't often buy anything these days but by golly I do enjoy looking. Take a closer look and see if there is anything that might interest you, I quite liked the green industrial ceiling lights above, would look good in the kitchen and also the green Aladdin shaped washing basket.. but I resisted :) Took these shots last week. I haven't left the house for the past three days but the snap lock down is over today so I will be out and about.. wearing a mask! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. ...yep, trash or treasures, it's all a matter of point of view.

  3. Always fun to wander through an "antique" shop. I seldom buy anything, but looking is fun. My house is already full of junk.

  4. I love these shops too, it's very hard to walk out with nothing.

  7. Dearest Grace,
    Those have been for decades our favorite, just to stroll mostly but at times you found a treasure.
    Nowadays, we're trying hard to downsize...
    Hugs,

  8. I've seen those green lamps used in cafes. At times in such shops you wonder who would buy some of the items on offer, but I guess someone does.

  9. I’d love to browse there. Wouldn’t buy anything though.

  10. Oh! Grace. This looks like Ingo´s room! "Horrible"!
    Nah, Ingo´s looks even worse. You might find old socks on the floor. 🤣
    But he has nearly everything to fix any technical problem.
    Why didn´t you go for the lamp?
    Here still lockdown.

  13. I'm sure I could find many things to appeal to me in a place like this. Good for you for resisting that basket. I might have had to fight the urge myself. It looks so cute.

  14. Sidenote, Wicker Chairs Burn So Well - I Would Collect A Bunch Of Busted Up Wicker Furniture And Then Set Them One By One On A Hot Bed Of Coals - They Turn Ghost White While They Burn And Hold Their Shape For The Longest Time - Always A Hit Around A Summer Time Bond Fire

    Cheers
