I have never been a big fan of shopping in general. I mean, Target is fine and all, but I can't shop at those places that have a million things to look at and sift through (Ross, for example). This means that every time I have seen an antique store I never thought twice about wanting to go inside and see what kind of treasures I could find. Also, most times I have tried my hand a garage saling, or taking a trip to Goodwill to find something awesome, I always fail. Never find a thing! And I always see people posting blogs about all the cool things they find an thrift and antique stores, and I'm not gonna lie, I am totaly jealous!
So this weekend we were downtown eating and just looking for something to do to waste a few hours of our time and we decided to stop in a couple big antique shops. Wow. I never knew they could have THAT much stuff in there! I was pleasantly suprised that not all of it was just..junk. I had my eye open for a few things (hint: did you read my last post?), but otherwise I was just looking for cute stuff. Well, the first thing I ran into was miss Talia :) And I am pretty sure she took all the cute things, I saw her grabbing a few adorable items - which I never found anything close to what she had, dangit!
Anyways, it was so fun to wander around. Here are a few things I picked up:
A cute little deer! (Shh..I may have bought more than a few cute little deers!)
Some pretty books, for $1! (Oh look..another deer).
A pair of these sweet little bird cages. Do you think I should put something inside of them?
So all in all, it was a success! Except for the fact that Chris now wants to decorate our house in antique swords...oye.
So who is with me next weekend?! :)
