A Trip to the Antique Shop

On Christmas Eve we visited one of the local antique shops just to browse the items and enjoy some time out and about as a family.  To me, it’s always interesting to browse through any kind of antique or vintage items.  I think (particularly in the U.S.) we put too much value on new and shiny and in the process we fail to see the value of older goods.  I think each blemish, be it a scratch or well-worn area, tells a story and should be appreciated for the service or use that a particular item has provided.  Many times these items have many years of service remaining and can become a cherished possession.

I carried my camera with me as we walked through the store.  I was hoping to discover some unique items or photo compositions.  I did manage to get a few shots that I thought may be worth sharing.

  1. I like the thread photo in particular here.

    If you like well worn and battered things showing use then perhaps I can interest you in a nice Samsung Galaxy, circa 2014, it’s certainly showing a “patina” 😀

    • I agree, I like the thread photo best as well.
      Lol. I’m sure you are proud of your phones “patina” I wouldn’t want to take that away from you. I’m sure it has a sentimental value far beyond what I could afford. 😜
