a date at the antique store

Hello there, I hope you’re having a happy Monday!

Last week was a busy one! It was good, but busy.  By the time Saturday afternoon rolled around, we still needed to do our weekly grocery trip and run some other errands.  So, we decided to get a sitter for the kids and have a little errand date together!  We hadn’t spent much time together the during the past few weeks and so this was a chance for us to catch up a little.  Before heading to all the places that we needed to go, Johannes suggested we spend some time in the local antique store here in town.  Of course, I agreed.  So with coffee in hand, we went in.

Antique store dateAntique shopping can be so much fun.  We both enjoy it.  Actually, Johannes even more so than I.  He likes to collect old vintage items such as clocks and framed pictures for his office.  The fun part: you never know what you will run into.  As you walk down the aisles, it feels like you’re going back in time.  There is so much history in every booth.

We didn’t have anything specific that we were looking for but several pieces caught my eye:

I love the look of old red and white tins and pans.  If I had more room in my kitchen, I would definelty use or display them!

Old perfume bottles.  Interesting shapes and sizes.  Smelling what’s inside them would be a little less pleasant, me thinks!

Interestingly, I came across this cute, little book.  The kids just watched this old-time classic movie recently.

I was amazed at how many salt and pepper shakers I saw!  There were so many in different shapes, sizes.

So what did we come home with, you wonder?!

  •  large green basket – you can never have enough storage baskets for toys, teddies, blankets and such.  I think I will put this one in Noah’s room.  His room has mainly red accent colors and a pop of green will be fun.
  • a glass flask – for Johannes’ office.  Who knows what he’ll fill it with.
  • a large tin pot with lid – I finally have something to store potatoes in.
  • an old pair of glasses – maybe Noah will wear them one day!

I hope you had a good weekend.  This summer seems to be flying by so quickly.  This week we are hoping to do a fun outing for the kids and maybe we will start school supply shopping too!

Until next time…
