Antique Store Adventures

It's always fun to look at antiques stores. You never know what you'll find. I mean, for me, I feel old at times when things I played with as a child are labeled VINTAGE. My teenage daughter especially loves to shop at antiques stores because she's all about vintage these days. We have shopped at Red Rooster Antiques before with luck, so we go back when we can. This is one of our favorite stores. 

Natalie enjoys creepy, so she was drawn to this doll. 

"It's probably haunted," I hissed at Natalie.

"I know. Cool, huh?" Natalie answered.

No. No. Not cool. Luckily she decided against the doll, which is good, because I probably would have refused to let her buy it. I mean, where are the EYES?

We also found a typewriter, but Natalie only had so much money, so she left it behind.

She loved this hat:

Natalie loves stuffed toys, and thought this was a cute bear:

This clown sort of scared me. Natalie was like, "You're not scary, you're sweet."

She ended up getting this Raggedy Ann:

This ET cup was neat:

If we had room, I totally would have bought this gossip bench. Yup, that's what it was called. 

Natalie decided to gossip with Raggedy Ann on the gossip bench:

She ended up buying this hat. It was only $10:

Check out this Shirley Temple cup. I watched so many of her movies as a kid:

This was a fun head piece but it looked awkward on Natalie so she passed:

We LOVED this Mary Poppins lunchbox but it was too expensive:

Eye masks are always fun:

There was a cool desk. And Natalie loved the Marilyn picture in the background:

We always find cool things at the store and will return soon.
