After a visit to Madame's, we were walking by this card shop and of course had to pop in. It was an amazing place. One of those shops where you have to be there and their stock is not on the internet. They had many cards and photographs from all different time periods but we seemed to fit right in when we entered and were happily amused looking through all the boxes. It was amazing the amount of inventory the owner had. He was a very nice man and was very happy to show us what he had. When he saw how we were dressed, he pulled out a box of fashion images and both Anthea and myself found some photographs from this. I forgot to ask him what his oldest piece was, I'm sure this would have been interesting to see.
Anthea, thinking "Hmm, which one shall I choose?"
Here is one of the images I picked up:
I have some very fabulous fashion cards from this shop that I will post next as I think they deserve a post all their own. I'll also share a picture of Anthea's hat she made for me.
After we left the shop, we went over to a nice cafe for lunch. Right next to the cafe, was a very interesting vintage movie theater, we didn't go all the way inside. On reflection, it would have been interesting to walk further in but we did take a couple of pictures next to the old movie camera and seats in the lobby. From what I understand, they play old movies there. Wouldn't this be a fun place to visit and see a movie?
Here we are at lunch....
Other various images from my trip:
One day we paid a visit to a sand sculpture exhibit...
Here are museum pictures from a gingerbread museum. It was a bit dark in some of the rooms so I didn't get good pictures of the molds. But, the children were happy and got to make some gingerbread cookies.
These are images from another museum where you could take a look into life as it was in Holland:
A little peak into the life of a vintage household:
I thought this was very interesting, you can see how they made their "linen" cloth for their clothes. I can't imagine having to keep track of row stitching on this!
Sorry about the refections on the glass, difficult to photograph.
A little bit of a vintage "modern" twist in the museum, love all these bags. 1940s.
