    Today Natasha Cupcake and I set out to one of my fave antique places down by the shore in CT. Disclosure, I thought I took more pictures but this will be an ongoing thread as we travel CT for vintage finds


    Perfume bottles, check out Cinderella's carriage!

    A really pretty floral beaded bag, the beads look like Lily of the Valley.

    @StephanieLynn, @natasha-cupcake ----Oh you girls! Out painting the town!
    I'm glad you two hooked up and had fun. And Pancakes!
    When I go out to all the vintage shops, I get a headache from looking in the cases and trying to read all the itty-bitty tags!

    I really wish I had taken more pictures, there were cases and cases of jewelry and all kinds of goodies. Next time I'll have to purge all my bling pictures before heading out!

    It was! :mrgreen2:
    I realized that I didn't take any pictures. What a dope! Next time, I'll be sure to do so. We did see a lot of cool stuff. I was too mesmerized to remember that I have a duty to post pictures!

    That would be my idea of a perfect day! I spent some time at a country antique mall with my daughter yesterday. Every time we go I see different things, so fun.

    @stracci2000, I looked into this and the family's farm is in Fairfield county but we were in a different county so I'm not really sure why this sign was here :confused:

    Checked out a new place today sadly minus my partner in crime. However this time I got lots of pictures to share. The spot is called Miss Dallas' Shop located in Milford CT, 4,000 square feet of goodies to explore.

    Here is the front of the store:

    Love the color on this glassware

    Check out the graphics on this packaging for screen cleaner

    This one has a lever on the side and when you turn it her arms move like she is knitting.

    And here are the treasures that came home with me:

    Aurora Borealis Brooches, the top one also converts to a pendant, these are gorgeous in person, the larger one was throwing rainbow orbs all over the interior of the car.

    Looks like fun!
    I love to go into places like this.
    My favorites:
    The wooden purse, the screen cleaner, opera glasses, and the Japanese black lacquer piano jewelry box.
    The pins and frog are lucky to go home with you!

    It was fun although I prefer places that are a little grittier because let's face it, those are the places you find the deals. However the owners were super nice to my kids which you never know how you will be perceived with a 12 year old and 5 year old in tow.

    Those Fenton lamps are I believe very rare, from limited research it appears they are cobalt student lamps in the Serene Winter pattern.

    and I are in talks for another joint adventure soon! In the meantime I spotted this place on the way to one of our favorite antique centers. I blocked out the name and address because they obviously have ALOT of jewelry so for security sake we will them Shoreline Gold and Coin.
