Duane and Linda and I decided to hit some of the local antique shops in Duane's neighborhood yesterday. Seminole Heights is a great place for antiquing with the shops, great little restaurants and cool bungalow houses. Duane lives in a bungalow that she has lovingly restored and it has charm by the truckload. We stopped at an estate sale in a beautiful old house that was being sold. Unfortunately, the sale was in it's second day so it seemed that every piece Linda looked at (mostly side tables) had SOLD written on the tag. Bummer.
Our first real stop was at the mid-century store Kaleidoscope. We love looking through this beautifully decorated and carefully curated store. I found this cool aqua ceramic hanging light and Linda found a lovely rug for her home office in the colors she's using for that room.
and Linda and I both hit pay dirt. I found another piece of matte white pottery for my collection (still to be blogged about -- with pics -- at a later date) and Linda, the tea drinker, found an English Brown Betty teapot. We were happy campers!
After taking a swing through Sherry's YesterDAZE Vintage Clothing & Antiques which is always crammed to the rafters with items from clothing, jewelry, furniture, household items and antiques, we were pretty pooped. Sherry has a website where she also sells some of her items online here.
Her store was written up in The New York Times and is definitely worth a visit if you're into anything vintage.
