I don't usually mention too many places around these parts...never really too impressed. But today I visited Columbia Antique Mall on the corner of Blossom and Huger streets and was blown away by all the antique treasures! There are two old filthy warehouses full of expensive things...the dirtier the costlier it seemed. I managed to finagle a few items which hopefully will appear in some artwork shortly. I've been preoccupied with setting up my new studio digs. I could not have picked a worse time to move...as you may have noticed, I've missed out on selling much for the holidays...woe is me! Hoping to be more productive in the new year, in my new space, with a lower overhead! xoxo

My favorite kind of shopping experience!

Be still my heart! She has the most beautiful blue
bow in her hair too! There is also a matching girl with a little
flapper hairdo that was too blurry to post.

Pretty white wood tramp art box mixed in with all sorts
of dirty treasures!

I've always wanted a great set of gams!

Tiny wood and metal sink-did this really work at one time?
The plug seems to suggest a yes!?

I wanted this so badly, it hurt! Maybe if its still there
in the new year! Those are chenille flowers-tag read

Incredible blue chandelier I cannot afford.

On the way out of the parking lot I noticed this
perched in the bushes.
So lovely!
