Eric and I felt like venturing out of the house today. We decided to go to an antique store in Shoreline, which is just north of Seattle…but south of Everett. We’ve been to this antique store, but it had been almost two years since our last visit! I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have quite a bit more merchandise than they did the last time we were here. And these are fun antiques! Not just stuff for hipsters! I’m planning on taking my parents to this particular antique store when they visit this summer. I think they would enjoy it as well!
Look at this fantastic movie projector!
This obnoxious wooden horse was for sale. I love horses...but this was just too much. They even censored it by tying some fabric around the horses naughty bits. Is someone really going to be offended by seeing the privates of a horse? Talk about uptight Seattleites!!
I want this for my dream house! And yes I do have a folder on my computer where I keep photos of things I would like in my dream house. You'll also find a claw-foot bathtub and a wrap-around porch on that list.
Horses, plates and creepy masks!
My parents had (possibly still have?) this!
I found some fun vintage postcards there as well! I’ve been updating a few of the postcard galleries here on my blog! In case you missed it, if you look at the top of this page just below the header you will see a few pages where you can view my postcard collection!
Eagle Gate at the state capitol in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Bathing in The Great Salt Lake, Utah.
This postcard shows the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love Utah! I think if it were near a coast I would want to live there. I DO want to live there...but I'd rather live near a coast.
Greetings from Florida! This postcard reads..."A gorgeous bird is the pelican, whose beak can hold more than his belican, he can put in his beak, food enough for a week, but I'll be d--d if I can see how in helican.
Crazy Horse Monument.
Tale of the Sea Horse.
After antiquing we stop by PCC in Edmonds. PCC is a fantastic co-op chain here in Seattle and surrounding cities. And then we made out way to The Root Beer Store! The Root Beer Store carries what looks like a few hundred varieties of root beer as well as birch beer and other varieties of soda. Eric and I are not soda drinkers, but this was a must see and we did walk away with a few bottles to sample over the next few weeks. I think my parents would find this to be rather amusing as well when they are here visiting!
The Root Beer Store! And that was only about half of the store.
We sampled two bottles. I picked out the Triple XXX because is seemed inappropriate enough.
Say what is right!
Juniper wanted to sample the birch beer. Kitten was only allowed to sniff it though.
