Day-tripping to the antique market ...

Today I ventured to one of my favourite places, the local antique market, to hunt for some goodies. And I found them, in spades.


A pack of vintage brooches and a pendant, under five bucks!


I have a thing for big chunky gold jewelry ...


1960's and 50's knitwear guides and a September 1950 issue of LIFE magazine. Super thick and full of gorgeous colour photos.



Vintage hardtop cosmetic train case. Perfect for weekend trips.


SUPER find. Patsy Walker's Fashion Parade! Adorable 1966 "Fashion Comic" full of wonderful ensembles and "heavenly hairdos". I am so happy to have this in my collection!




I also stopped at the candy store of course, to pick up some treats.
Lucky Elephant pink popcorn, French Chew Taffy, piña colada and watermelon honey sipper straws, Dentyne classic cinnamon gum, bubblegum and candy cigarettes, and yum-delicious clove gum.



Close-ups and more in this photo set.

Everything you found is so perfect. I can only imagine that overexcited feeling you must have inside untill you've started using your new things. :)

Great finds! I collect vintage jewelry and can't leave an antique market without a new piece or two!

Anna said...

Such cute things! I wish we would have little vintage shops around the city here in Norway =/ Okay maybe we have a couple of, but they're probably super expensive.

Oh btw, I have linked your blog from my latest entry.

Anitique fairs and thrift shops (op-shops as we call them) are my absolute favorite places to shop- you never know what amazing things you will find by the end of the day. whenever I go I'm especially on the lookout for old instruments, vintage clothes, and quirky contraptions!
