Antique Store Visit

Photo/ Vintage

There’s an Antique store up where my mom lives and any time I know I’ll be near by I make sure I stop there.  It’s the Four Winds Antique store in Middletown, NY – so if you’re ever in Orange County New York I recommend it.  My mom and I stopped there Friday and I never really go in there looking for something specific but I do know what I like – old photographs, tintypes, old illustrations or postcards, jewelry, old books, old or foreign coins.  Friday I found a good handful of items with illustrations:

Tintype of Jennie

Tintype of “Jennie” she’s wearing a cool scarf! I like her.

Vintage Easter Card

Vintage Mass Cards

Vintage Mass Cards I really like this illustration as well

Vintage Valentine Card

This was my favorite of all I bought – a vintage valentine’s day card!! Those purple flowers caught my eye. And look at the hand-cut detail of the edges. Beautiful. Dated from the early 1900s.

Flower jar and foreign coins

Flower jar and foreign coins – I collect foreign coins so this is going to add to that collection =o) I’m still not sure what I am going to do with that jar – probably fill it with spare buttons!
