First we spotted Hampden Street Antique Market. The second we stepped into the store it was almost overwhelming but such a welcome surprise since we've been developing the taste for hunting for vintage awesomeness. These for example found at the arc thrift store on Mississippi and Sable-It's hard to resist the somewhat hideous, yet rich, colors of the 50's, 60's and 70's... add rust and classic type to it and Hot Damn!! ... even if it is a vacuum cleaner....and back to the original topic, here is one of the gems at the antique store but we just couldn't justify hanging it in our closet even at the reasonable price of fifteen big ones so we left it for some other lucky hunter, maybe someone a little more in need of a gas mask?
And then a few doors down, as well as centuries into the modern era, we found the largest store I have ever been inside of... no not super wal-mart... it was a showroom for Scandinavian Designs. There was so much awesome furniture under one roof that it made me pine for riches, but surprisingly their prices were reasonable so maybe just moderate success will suffice. Here's M test driving one of the living room sets. There's nothing like a shiny cherry-red living room ensemble.
In Other Newswhen we got home we found that the kitty has finally found the best perching spot for her favorite position, the Beached Whale.
and poor Owsley still has Floppy Ear Syndrome more commonly referred to as an aural hematoma. We've been told if left alone it will go away eventually but leaving "cauliflower ear" in it's wake. Poor pup... but in the interim there is the added bonus of him being even more cute than before, if possible.
