Put your walking shoes on. We’re treasure hunting!

I did not read the sign below about these old photos until just a little while  ago. It is a hoot! Pick your own ancestors…mess with your children once you’re dead and gone!

"Now is that Aunt Cecilia? I never met her. Looks like mother, doesn’t she?" (And Mother bought the photo at the antique mall and stuck it in the scrapbook! Sounds just like something I’m apt to do!)

Another sewing machine table! And it’s red! I cannot believe how many sewing machine tables I have seen at this mall in one given day.

I don’t know exactly what the item below is exactly supposed to be. So I shall call it a vintage whimsical sculpture.

Anyone know of a bordello that needs lighting? Oh, what ambience!

Well, sit yourself down and take a load off. There are so many pretties on the walls and hanging from the rafters, you won’t even know you stopped moving.

Okay, that’s it, ladies. Hope you enjoyed your antique mall tour. If you’re ever in Tyler, take a little trip downtown and bargain hunt.

  10. Hi Brenda,

    Oh, I spotted some things that I would love to have. What a wonderful store/mall.

    hugs,
    Barb

  11. I sounded nuts LOL Don’t worry about me Brenda. I’m seriously a happy person. I just worry about stupid stuff and wanted everyone to know why I haven’t been talking about the house. Thank you for worrying though 🙂

    love you too,
    rue

  12. Hey, I used to own a couple of those items. But then again, I’m kind of an antique myself.

  13. What a fun tour! I LOVE that bed! Is it a king? Probably not. 😦 That’s the problem with having a king bed…………can’t find an antique bed for it. So many pretty things to look at though! I love the “pick your own ancestors”!!! I have several old pictures of complete strangers and when people ask me who they are I give them made-up names and say what town they came from (wherever I bought them!)It’s fun to confuse people sometimes!!!
    Have a great weekend sweetie!
    -Cinderella 🙂

  14. Looks like you’ve been having fun! 🙂

  15. I love this antique mall…. maybe I should plan a road trip soon. 🙂 xoxo, Joanna
