Antique shopping and a giveaway

I headed east to search for treasures. Photobucket
One of my favorite little antique shops about an hour and a half to two hours away , right outside of Ellensburg in a little town called Throp is this place is loaded with goodies. I am already planning my trip back ! I bought the doll in the front of these two shown, the blonde one.

There was just so much to see.I love these pin cushion dolls and these dolls too.

Photobucket
Do you ever wish maybe you could live in the 30's 40's era? I do sometimes, thinking about being able to go into a store and these kind of things they would sell. You can't go to a regular store and buy these things .
Photobucket
And I loved this , you can see my little girl there in the mirror being a good little shopper and holding mommy's purse. Painted a pale pink would be darling in any little girls room!If I would have had more room this probably would have came home with me!
Photobucket
Of course there were lots of things I liked but I only buy what I love.
Photobucket
Only half my pictures came out as I was carrying my little girl who will be two in a couple weeks. She likes to shop too even at antique stores!

Photobucket

There were linens everywhere!

Like this gorgoeus old tablecloth tucked into an old drawer.
Photobucket
This barn style building is 3 stories inside, the first one has all the fruit and the upper two floors are loaded with antiques.

Photobucket
I love this cute little lamp with dotted swiss on it's old plastic shade. I did find a pale pink dotted swiss apron that I did buy just for the fabric, but it is so sweet I am not sure if I have the heart to cut it!(The picture cut the lamp shade off! I do love the jadite green vase in the picture too.
See these awesome belt buckles in the far left cabinet, Oh my gosh ! I love them with there chunky rhinestone look.
Photobucket

I am so going back for one of these!

Thanks for sharing all the pretty photos. I wish our antique mall had good stuff like this. And thanks for the chance to win the magazine!

Debbie said...

What a great place to shop! Our antique malls look nothing like that!

I so love the little pink wardrobe cabinet!! I just painted a vanity set for my grand-daughter; in bright pink. That little wardrobe would look so adorable in her room. Maybe I'll have to try and make her one. :)

Sarah said...

What a great deal on the hats! They are so pretty!

I love to go shopping with you and your little assistent! Time flies don't ya think? I remember Snookies' first birthday as it was yesterday. You share your birthday with one of my BFF's, that is no coincidence!
I would love to enter your give away as I didn't order 'where women create' yet! Have a great start of the week!

I wish I lived close to a place as wonderful as this!! Thank you for sharing all of those great pictures. I went to my favorite antique shop in Cape May, NJ while on vacation a couple of weeks ago and couldn't help but take lots of pictures, too!! I have them posted on my blog if you want to take a look.

My 8 year old loves to go antiquing with me, but I wouldn't dare take a 2 year old. You are one brave woman!

Elyse said...

I too have wondered what it was like to see these pretties in the 30"s and 40's.. my favorite period! There was such a lack of money due to the war, yet these gems were available. Great mall. Lori

Julia said...

You obviously had a lot of beautiful things to look at. I love antique malls. Here in Germany we don't have them or at least I have never seen one. Of course we do have antique shops but I like the variety of different sellers in one place.

Beth Leintz said...

What a fun mall- and those hats were a steal- its so hard to find PINK hats.

My favorite picture is the one with your little girl in the mirror- so sweet!

wendyrsm said...

Priscila said...

Princess Of Pink said...

Oh My Gosh, I have JUST found your blog, and I LOVE what I read SO far. Adore that antique mall, would love to browse there but too many pretties. That pin cushion doll is TDF!!!!!

Hugs from a new fan ♥

Fran said...

WOW!! What a wonderful Antique shop. I have several Boudior dolls. Some have to be repaired. I will get around to repairing them.
I love Antique shops. Las Vegas has some but not like the one you went to.

The picture of your daughter in the mirror holding your purse is adorable.

Didn't know there was such a magazine as Where Women Create. I have to go check it out and add it to my other subscriptions.
LOVE YOUR BLOG!
Fran

Nelly said...

Ohh, I love antiquing! I tend to go to the linens and ephemera. Love the millinary too but that doesn't to be too abundant where I am, unfortunately. Thanks for offering the great publication!

Scottish Nanna said...

Oh wow! Wish I could have been with you ... I'm totally drooling over the linens {and several other goodies I must admit}. Thanks for sharing your great photos - it's eye candy to me.

What a huge array of beauties you have for us. It would be hard to pick a fave but guess I am more drawn to the little baby shoes. Sweet. Thanks for the pics, Mollye
