A Day Spent Antiquing
I went antiquing with my mother and father a few weeks ago. We ventured up to Seaman, Ohio. Seaman is a very small, primarily Amish town in Ohio. It's commonplace to see horses pulling buggies, little girls in aproned dresses and boys coasting down the sometimes one-lane roads on bikes [that don't have seats, for some reason.] Here are some things I spotted on my hunt for treasure:
This ceramic dog is sporting a nice chain for a collar. He was a steal at $20. Don't you wonder where these things were in their prime? I imagine this guy was perched in the sun room of a 1950's ranch home. But I'm likely way off.
What do you think these were used for? They don't look like they were used for shoes because they're flat and cut off at the ankle. Maybe socks?
And I found the photo above sitting on this old doctor's cabinet. My mom opened one of the drawers and an overwhelming smell of ether washed over us; it legitimately was enough to make us pass out. That was a surprise we did not enjoy.
Do any of you have interesting finds from an adventure antiquing?
