Taking a peek inside Downtown Antiques: A two story antique shop that also houses a cafe, a bookshop and a law office. Now that's versatility! It took a little pleading, but I finally convinced my hubby to stop.
There was so much to look at! From the regular sort of antique finds:
|Pez Dispensers (sorry for the glare)|
|Beautiful glassware (Love the cookie jar)|
|Look at the pattern on the little creamer set...so cute|
|An assortment of oil lamps|
|Old cast iron ware|
|Not sure what that is-maybe a redneck back scratcher|
(I can say that, I live in Arkansas....lol)
|Over-sized tortoise shell|
|underside of shell|
|Old View Master with original box|
|Vintage Metal Toys|
|Fire Truck and drums|
|This was so cool|
|Mr. Peanut Man (story behind this in a previous post)|
|Neat to see this old Candy Striper Uniform |
(I used to be a Candy Striper at a hospital in my teens. )
|Reminds me of when my grandpa used to go duck hunting|
Some of my favorite items:
|I loved EVERYTHING in this booth!|
|Old mailbox doors|
|Right up front--what grabbed my attention from the street|
|The one on the right is a "Buddy L"|
|Wood working tools- planers|
The "Most Unique" Award goes to......
The JOHN LENNON TAPESTRY
My children first spied it hanging on the wall, and asked "who is she?", and I can't say as if I blamed them for the gender confusion, as Mr. Lennon was wearing quite a bit of rouge for his photo shoot!!
That concludes are stop at Downtown Antiques---and as these folks are probably thinking.....
