Saturday Morning at an Antique Shop {Post 1 of 3}

I love looking through antique stores. Occasionally buy something, but rarely. (My last purchase in St. Augustine was a totally awesome enameled iron casserole in the most lovely seaglass green...oval with scalloped edges and small darker green flowery decoration around the edge. So lovely. Bonus: when watching Julie and Julia I saw other pieces like it in Julia Child's kitchen! I will take a picture of it someday and post it.)

This trip was a little strange. First shop I stopped at they all but stripped searched me. Then told me my camera was too large. Hmmm. Large. According to them if it was smaller or a phone camera, it would be ok, but they apparently have a fear that people swoop upon there precious store and take pictures of their items with large cameras then, gasp, sell said item on ebay!! HORRORS!! Think about it. I don't understand stupid. Needless to say I looked at them like they grew horns said a few choice words and turned and left after gathering my purse out of lockers provided because God only knows we could never never carry a purse in their antique shop. Can you tell I was a little peeved? Thank goodness at the next antique shop I got a cordial greeting and a sweet smile. Here are the beautiful items I saw...the first is a very old doll buggy. Sorta creepy. Then other times sorta sweet.
