There's a little retro vintage and antique shop where my sister lives.
We like to drop by there each time I visit.
This year I noticed the place had changed a fair bit.
Gone were most of the furniture antiques.
And there was very little pottery or china on display.
But we did see an exact replica of our mom's old kitchen aide.
Then there were what I call little bits of things. Like a bowl of
old wooden spools. Clothespins wrapped in bric-a-brac.
A banner of old letters, envelopes and vintage alphabet cards.
The letters were interesting to read and I loved the idea.
I asked the proprietor why they were selling little bags of old slides.
"The college kids find them fascinating as they have never seen them before."
Notice the half made lamp shade above.
Apparently preparing the slides to hang on the shade was a very slow process.
"Does anyone use the old sewing patterns?" I asked.
I learned that people bought them to actually use.
Those that don't like the idea that children
in other lands may have had a part in sewing the clothes at stores.
Also missing was the vintage bridal shop in this back room.
But there was a lot of other unique clothing, shoes and hats.
The shop's changes remind me that peoples' tastes and interests evolve.
