One of the great things about vacations is finding new places to
spend my money shop.
I found some awesome antique shops in Pueblo, Colorado. They have a darling historic downtown area, in case you ever go there. Kevin was a sweetie & took the kids to the park so I could do some power shopping!
I have a real weakness for celluloid albums,
especially if they are priced well..........
& filled with amazing photos! The cover & spine of this album were damaged, hence the low price. Good for me, I prefer it all falling apart!
This might be a good time to tell you this is going to be a long post.
And filled with lots of eye candy!
Do I have your attention???
They are doll shoes actual size......1 & a half inches long.
The leather loafers make me Crazy,
What is it about tiny things that makes my heart skip a beat?
These shoes are a couple of inches longer. I really need to stop buying baby shoes, but I can't.
2 more for my collection.
And wait till you see this.....
Most of this came from one persons booth!
And most of it was priced at $1 or $2 apiece.
Beautiful bigger crocheted pieces.
I really love the flesh colored ones, I think I will hoard those for awhile.
This little box was $7, the note from someones Aunt Anna still enclosed.
See that piece in the back? The sequined trim?? That is my favorite find of the day. I love just all these little bits.
From lace to rust. This lot came from one dealer too. The prices were really
I freaked out when I found these pins, they will be perfect on a tattered collage.
I saw this beat up looking box sitting on a shelf, opened it & discovered it was filled with ephemera dating back to 1920-40.
It may have been an 'insipration' box, there's a bunch of tracings & sketches inside.
And finally, this isn't new but don't you love it?
My niece wanted to stop at Urban Outfitters, their clothes are about 20 years too
small young for me but they have some cute accessories. I couldn't resist this lace basket.
So there it is, my vacation souvenirs!
Hope your weekend was fun & cooler than mine was.
How many more days until Fall????
