Antique Shopping Trip



Well, I picked up quite a few vintage goodies over the last week! I visited a ton of antique malls on Vancouver Island and saw some amazing items. My favorite would have to be a 1920's stove for $150! Obviously there was a big "SOLD" sign on it.
Anyhow, I posted a few pictures of my purchases.
First is a pair of gorgeous 1950's vintage shoes. They are covered in rhinestones and have lucite heels! The best part though, is they're a size 8 and fit me perfectly!
Next I found the cutest 1950's lamp. It has a green shade, a frame with a leaf design, and comes with a removable ashtray!
The last photo is of my prized art deco purse. It's a good size with 3 pockets inside, and has a beautiful lucite clasp.
I don't even have a photo of my favorite purchase though! It's a silver cracked ice 1950's arborite tea cart. So unique! I also picked up a classy looking 1940's black velvet hat.
I think it was my most successful vintage shopping trip yet!

What a lovely lamp! And score on those shoes... I used to obsessively search for lucite accessories but never found any shoes big enough--yours are great!
