Nevermind Tedious Ancestor Worship

It had been too long since I had spent a day visiting antique malls. The prices are always exorbitant in those places compared to secondhand shops or estate sales, but it's fun to wander from one cluttered building full of vintage treasures to another similarly crowded edifice. One can also occasionally find the well-priced keepsake worth walking away with.

  1. Wow! My family actually has that door hanger of the 12 Days of Christmas, along with a bunch of other ancient Christmas decorations that I guess would qualify as antiques now!

  2. I love antique malls, especially ones found randomly! Everytime i've been to one I feel like i'm stepping inside history for that particular town or city, its the most wonderful feeling!
    And wonderful outfit of course!

  5. That bag has got to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen! Antique malls are tricky on the wallet as opposed to 2nd hand shops. I often treat my visits to them as though I'm touring a museum and, should I find something I can't live without, I may buy it.

  11. I haven't been to an antique mall lately either.

    I love the antique books the most. Every time I walk through an antique mall, I always stop at every bunch of books to see what the titles are.

  28. Browsing an antique mall is definitely a great way to while a day away. There's one in southern Vermont that I like visit every now and again.

    It's been far too long since I've paid your blog a proper visit with a comment and all. Your posts are as inspiring and delightful as ever. I greatly enjoyed the review on Bright Star you recently put up. I just watched it for the first time since seeing it in the theater last fall and it completely blew me away... again. Campion certainly created a gem.
