Antique Malls

Hey Neighbors!

We took a quick trip, five days, four nights including traveling to Independence and Columbia Missouri.  We managed to visit a couple of really nice restaurants and a couple of antiques malls.  I LOVE to wander the antique malls.  Since each person in my family likes and/or collects different items it is always fun to look around.

One son collects Breyer horses.  My fifteen year old daughter collects bird items, like figurines, music boxes etc.  My 12 year old daughter likes to collect paper dolls, glass figurines (slippers and ladies), and just about anything Chinese.  My other son likes things to do with planes.  I collect Boyd's Bears and Cherished Teddies.

Anyway we managed to wander through three different antique malls this trip. I personally like when the are set up in aisles so you know where you are going and where you have already been.  Some are very disorganized and you are constantly tripping over things.  I have even been to a couple where you couldn't even get in to see what was available.

We managed to find a couple of gifts while at the antique malls and I added a couple more bears to my collection.  Now I am having some down time at the hotel to recover!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!  See you At the Fence soon!

I love the little lady wit the 2 broken arms. We do have a favorite antique mall - Salamanca Antique Mall. We don't usually buy anything but we love to look.
tawndam said… it just me... or is that old lady doll preciously charming & horrifyingly creepy all at once? I wonder if the owner talks to her... lol
The picture of the old lady really creeps me out - but I can't stop looking at it! I collect old German Nutcrackers.

I agree about the little old lady doll...she looks a bit freaky to me. HA HA! Then again, if I had two broken arms I might look like that too. LOL!

We have a few around here but taking a 6 and 8 yr old is risky. Too much to look at and very tempting to touch. I like old blue glass.

I love walking around an antique store. I usually never buy anything, though. The stores that I walk through in Southern California are usually very expensive.
