Today I thought I’d share with you a bit of vintage goodness from a recent outing my husband and I went on.
(Phoebus area of Hampton, Virginia)
I took a bunch of photos hoping to share all the great things I saw with y’all here.
Like this really neat old typewriter….
I love old typewriters.
And anything old and vintage really.
Like this red chair.
I really wanted to take it home with me.
But have no space for it. Darn.
And this old “ice crusher”….
Love the colors of both! I think I needed to bring the chair and ice crusher home.
Vintage toy tractor in a window.
How about this old bookstore? LOTS of vintage goodness in here.
And I do meant LOTS.
There were books EVERYWHERE.
Every crevice and cranny was filled….with books.
I have never seen anything like it.
Follow me down the hall…see the chair back there for reading?
And around a tiny “corner” to another little reading nook….
Continuing down towards the back of the book store.
Look at all of those books. Sigh.
I could have stayed in there for hours.
I loved this cozy little entryway along the street.
And this business storefront.
Old made new again.
This was a really cute little “pet spa”.
Old vintage pocket watches…..
A little retro fun.
Not my thing but fun to look at.
I grew up with these everywhere….now, obsolete for the most part.
Not to mention, nowhere to be seen except as a novelty item inside this store…for sale.
And check out this place….not much to look at from the outside.
But there are treasures galore.
Wait until you see what’s waiting inside.
So many lights.
And I was fascinated with these old ones here….
I don’t know why but I just loved them!
But that is just the downstairs. Now I’ll show you what’s upstairs.
But first, this little cubby of a space before you go.
Sorry for the quality of the photos. These were all taken with my cell phone.
Now leading upstairs from that little area….
Even more, every inch of space has a light fixture of some sort.
And a pretty mirror. :)
Look what we found upstairs.
All kinds of lighting parts. Every single thing you can imagine or would ever need.
Really. I wasn’t kidding. It was huge. I only got a few shots of it.
Apparently they sell a lot online. I can’t even imagine.
It was mind boggling to see in person.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of vintage and more today.
Have a great weekend! xo
