Window Shopping Day 2

Yesterday, I allowed you to join me on some window shopping in the historic district in downtown Sumner, WA. Today, I want to share with you some more super cool things I found while on my date with my husband.

Aren't these vintage cards and rolls of old sheet music really cool?

I bought a few of these old tickets dated from 1954.

I just love mercury glass. Go here to see how I made some of my own. Here are a few items I could add to my collection.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this pieced together doll. Creepy or cool, not sure. Either way, it's a good use of some vintage items.

Owls seemed to be everywhere. This one was linen and leather.

This one was just plain cool.


I love the look of these little cards

Isn't this guy sweet? Ah, thanks, flowers for me?!

There are several antique shops downtown


I don't know what it is about old bingo cards. I love them.

And beach accents. I can't get enough!

Banners seemed to still be everywhere. So classic.

I loved the colors in this sweet little vintage dress.

I'm a sucker for an old sign



My gears were turning when I saw all of these old vintage game pieces. Not sure what I would do with them, but I wanted the whole lot!

Packaging makes such a difference.

These pears were cool country

and seriously, if you have to have a gnome in your garden, these guys would be the ones I would pick!

Like old signs, I'm also a sucker for old photos. I love that they were all pictures of the local landscape and surrounding areas.

I love the displays for these cupcakes

Look closer. These pies and sweet treats are actually ornaments

Cute dress? Nope, a sophisticated apron. I would almost be too afraid to cook in it!

Birds nests are the best


This is a huge copper birds nest for the garden

And some more cool lawn ornaments


Such cool things that we found while we were out shopping. Join me tomorrow for some Halloween fun. There is too much to share that it will take up the next two days.
