Today we drove to Taunton, Massachusetts to check out an antique store one of friends told us about. The place was so huge we got lost twice! We’ve decided to visit another time because one cannot possibly see it all in one day! Our original plan was to check out the vinyl records, but we were so distracted by all the neat stuff!

Mom & I would visit antique stores when I was a child and I just loved it. I realize this is odd, but I AM ODD! It has taken me a while to figure out what my obsession is with antique stores is really all about. I have to admit, I don’t buy & collect antiques. I suppose most people antique for the money, right? For me though, antique stores are a way for me to remember the way we were. Corny, but true. I need something classic in my hectic, intangible, digitized life!! There is something so solid and sure about wood furniture and manual cameras!

I encourage you to visit antique stores. It made for great conversation between me and my husband! At some points during the visit we really had to use our brains (NO GOOGLING) to remember how some devices or items were used at the time. Please enjoy some of the photos below.

A whole room of records!
What a gem.
WAIT A MINUTE- I REMEMBER THESE! AM I THAT OLD?!

 

I MISS ARCHIE COMICS!

 

VINTAGE!! Remember when clothing was MODEST?!
It ALWAYS lies….
Doesn’t fit in my pocket like a smartphone but still pretty cool.
Love vintage books.
We still cannot figure out what kind of medical equipment this is!
Oh vintage Mickey!
