Antique Mall Trolling

This post is extremely after the fact, but I wanted to share a couple things I picked up while trolling antique malls in Soquel (Santa Cruz, Ca).

Honestly, the finds weren't so great in number if, like me, you weren't looking to drop your whole paycheck.

Here's a couple of the booths in my favorite antique mall, housed inside what I can only assume used to be a great big barn!

Look at all those great old typewriters! I also reeeally like convex glass oval frames, like the portrait above the desk in the last photo.

I ended up adding 4 new antique snapshots to my huge collection, which I lovingly scanned, color corrected and share with you now:

This tiny and sweet little fawn made it's way home with me-

And so did this fabulous tooled leather handbag by American West (80's?) that I literally haven't stopped using since I bought it-

The end!

I love the purse and old photos! The little fawn figurine is adorable too. My great aunt rents an old mill and rents out booths for an antique mall. I haven't visited her booth or the antique mall but if they're as lovely as these I'm missing out.

Hi, I'm stopping by from Freckled Nest! The old photos you found are amazing; it's so neat to get a glimpse into people's lives and imagine their stories.

The photos you found are wonderful.

I love seeing thrift finds through their finders eyes. For example, that bag, I probably wouldn't give it a second look, but you are rocking it, and I'm pretty jealous.

visiting from FN. what a great necklace!
