It's a good hour away, but well worth the drive.
Mary's birthday was coming up so Ted took a day off work to drive here and find her something special.
It's HUGE! Located in Allentown, PA and is called Black Rose Antiques.
Of course, I always gravitate towards vintage holiday decorations.
This antique shop is located inside a mall and is the size of I think two warehouses. Lots to choose from.....but if you're looking to buy and resell, don't bother. The prices are very competitive and on the higher side. But, if you're looking for something special, this is just the place.
Isn't this cute? The 1950s version of an i-phone...ipod? Whatever it is people have now-a-days.
A cute graphic for all you paper lovers out there!
I mean, really. How cute were people back then?! All that innocence I would have loved to raise my kids in.
OK. I took this for my own benefit. It brought back memories.
I thought of Diane from Saturdayfinds when I took this pic. She always seems to love little lambs.
And as I wanted to take even more pictures to demonstrate how huge this place was, the last shot I got was of Ted checking out a book. The man can't pass up an old book! Then the batteries ran out.
What did we wind up getting Mary? I knew of a pretty Madame Alexander ballerina doll and Ted knew she wanted some long pink gloves.
And our little vintage lover celebrated her mile-stone birthday in her own unique style.
