    I love browsing in antique shops. You find the most fascinating items. Then you want to take it home with you. BUT your husband says NO. :)

  10. Something very British about this image. It's the vintage aspect. I keep hearing Agatha Christie in my head.

  11. Antique or not, those sleds look like they are ready to fly!

  14. Delightful photos. It feels good to see something old. Thanks!

  15. Oh, haha, when the first pic was loading, I thought, "She took a picture of her closet?" The windows are much more interesting I suspect.

  17. Sandy: What a neat look into your world, I loved the old sleds. They were really fun to ride.

  18. I'm amazed that there is no glare or reflection from glass! I always love to take photos of shops as well - charming!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Shops always are a good subject of photography, more when they sell antiques. Nice theme!

  20. i have always wanted to mount a sled to the kitchen ceiling and use the runners to hang pots and pans from...call me strange but thought it might be neat.
    interesting post.
    have a great week.

    I like to browse antique shops. I don't have any antiques but I like looking at them.

    Sandy, I have had a terrible time trying to leave a comment on your blog lately. I don't know what I am or am not doing.

    I love the vintage clothing, and can't help wondering if Rosebud is hiding among the sleds.

    ReplyDelete
  26. how fun, reminds me of my youth-the sleds...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great lighting on these moody shots. I'd love to shop there.

    One of those sleds could be my old sled "Betsy." I don't know what happened to it. The first photo reminds me of the old fur coat I bought used in the early 1970's.

  29. Rosebud!!!
    Love to stroll along with you, Sandy. Aloha-

  30. Very interesting and unique. Something I wont see in the shops here.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like the beautiful coats but would not have a chance to wear them in my warm country. :(

    Happy Valentine's Day, in advance!
    I gave you a linky love.

  32. I haven't seen sleds like that in a long time. It looks as if these are a couple of neat stores.

    Wow, look at those coats. Gosh, I haven't even seen coats like that in an age.

    Great photos! Of course.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Interesting! I'd like to take a stroll in that antiques shop.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have never seen such old sleds! If it was here, they would be in a museum.

    Maybe the people here used them as firewood during the war? That is a sad thought. I am glad to have seen your photo.

    ReplyDelete
  36. And always a need for sleds! Great shots!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wonderful photos. I love antiques.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sandy, Those photos bring back many cherished
    memories especially the sleds. My brother and I each had one and we loved sledding back in the 50's.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am always amazed by antiques stores. They have an old soul and thousand of memories that pop up in your mind just by looking at them!
    Great pictures!

  40. Antique stores and libraries are places where I could spend a day with out the thought of food...

    The photos splendidly capture the spirit of antique stores, Sandy

  41. Nothing like a good antique. I'm one but I don't know if I'm good and I know I'm not for sale. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Woodbury looks like a place I'd like to visit. What neat stores these must be!

    I love that first photo and I kind of like that black coat. We had sleds like that in the orphanage, along with a hill that we were able to sled down on. Great memories.

    Those are wonderful shop fronts. I have a sled very similar to the middle one shown which I got for Christmas around 1965. It worked well for my daughter in the 1980s and 1990s when she was growing up too. Ah memories.

    Ohhh! I love antique browsing... not necessarily buying them though. But sometimes i do get carried away and find myself buying something that would not make that much of a dent on my pocket. Nice post.

  53. Now Sandy, that's no way to talk about your neighbors! (heh heh heh)

    I kid. Nice pair.

    Of shots... jeez!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Real sleds! That brings back memories. I used to have one. I bet they don't even make them anymore. Too dangerous, I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  55. the second photo is my type of subject. and you did a good job for that shoot.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like the first picture with the coats.

    It's interesting - the mid-century modern things that I'm into are also now considered vintage :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'll take the white coat and a sled to use once a year when we get snow-- I love to window shop but when it comes to antiques I want to touch

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've never been shopping there, Sandy. Woodbury Commons right? I love the two shots you took! :)

  61. What wonderful memories that brought back for me! I loved sledding on sleigh hill in my hometown in Idaho. The clothing reminds me of a shop we have in uptown vancouver -- it is called Diva and the models in the storefront always have soem old clothing on it. There are people that like those kinds of clothes and wear them regularly today! You got two neat photos filled with manymemories of others. . . ah! the good old days!
