Ohio River Antique Mall Sampling

There is something for everyone. Three floors of all kinds of items.

I don’t need a single thing and yet I enjoy looking.

Instead, I should be signing up for the attic or basement clean-outs offered.

My friend and I were driving back from the yarn store.  I was stocking up for the winter.

We’d seen this colorful place on the way out to Sewickley and made a stop on the way back.

The huge ornament is from Kaufmann’s Department Store Santa Land and the giant cage belonged to Mrs. Kaufmann’s tropical bird (which outlived her)

Bill the owner told us the story about the bird and the ornament and you can see how this scene caught our eye as we drove by.

Too bad I didn’t have this photo for the WPC Ornate-   Kaufmann’s Christmas Tree

 

valisesYou know these suitcases (valises) each have a story. Not sure where they’ve been.

 

Barbie dollsYou know the dolls look at me….or in this case, look away from the lens.

Not sure if bride dolls are still manufactured but they were popular at one time.

ANTIQUES

I bought a handkerchief.  Has a little nursery rhyme in the middle.  Another post just for it another day.
