Latest Finds At Red Rooster Antiques

Antique Stores are neat. You never know what you'll find and even better, everything is unique. Mind you, it makes me cry when I find toys from the 90s there because I'm like, EXCUSE me? But still. 

We love one called Red Rooster Antiques located in New Braunfels. There's always something new to look at, and the ladies that work there are friendly. 

Here's what we found during our last visit:

My daughter was intrigued by this necklace with perfume. "That is a great idea," she mused. 

We discovered a Wizard of Oz lunch box. My dream is to one day find those lunchboxes from my childhood that came with the matching thermos. 

Natalie loved this mirror but it was $100 so she put it back. But it reminded her of the scene in Titanic where older Rose picks up a mirror like this and gasps, "This was mine. Reflections changed a bit."

Remember the Tickle Me Elmo craze? I was a kid, but I remember hearing about it and being like, "But why?" 

If you like vintage cleaning supply packaging, they're here. These are perfect for a retro photoshoot:

Natalie fell in love with this Fisher-Price toy and purchased it. I think it was like $12. She liked his bow tie:

Natalie loves all the vintage Pyrex. Her goal is to find a pink Pyrex set from the 50s/60s that is depicted in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. This was Pyrex but obviously not the color she's looking for, but she still gets excited when she sees retro Pyrex:

This was such a pretty bird cage:

When you're in an antiques store, you always find Beanie Babies. Remember that craze? Again, I was a kid, and I don't remember going crazy for these. My daughter has some that she's found at yard sales. Her boyfriend got her Leggs, the Beanie baby frog she's been wanting for Christmas:

Natalie always wants furniture like this but sadly, we have no place to store it. If she had a giant room, she'd so have this set up in it:

This was a neat Barbie car but it was already sold. I was amused that Kristoff was riding around in it:

There's a small clothes/accessories section that Natalie loves. She's a fan of the hats. She got a pill box hat the last time we went and sometimes she lucks out with finding a dress. 

You never know what you'll find at an antiques store. I recommend going in one if you're looking for something unique. Or heck, if you need to sell stuff, that's a fabulous place to do it. Natalie says if you have fashion from the 60s to let her know first ;) She has some Christmas money.

  11. I remember the Tickle me Elmo craze. My daughter was born the year he came out. It’s crazy how long ago that was. My daughter is 27.
