This place is amazing. Not only did they have a ton of super cool stuff (like these figural measuring tapes....
Okay, granted I don't get out a whole lot. But still.
The floor in the main "drag" of the building is made of slices of pine from a local farm. Then they had a tar guy come in and lay them all in and seal it up. They did that in 1970ish, I think she said, when they converted the building to what it is today - a super-cool antique mall.
Eeeeeeekkk! Do you see how many buttons there are here?! And all sorted by type and material! One jar (see it in the front?) is even rainbow-ized!
I have a ridiculous amount of vintage buttons already. Otherwise I would've brought some home. Actually, if they had a jar of wooden buttons - it would have been mine. But the closest they had was bone.
The architectural elements in this place are just beyond cool. Coupled with the fact that this was the same day we found that awesome estate sale, and then we went to the big antique shop I shared with you yesterday, I mighta been kinda antiqued-out for the day. Because, honestly - I was more interested in the structure and history of this place by the time we got inside. I'll be going back for sure.
Seriously, how cool is this place? Next time, I'll have to spend a bit more time on the actual antiques!
