Beautiful Antique Images~

Friday I went to the antique store
in a quaint little town
that is going out of business.
Hoping to find more old ledger paper
but it was all gone.
However I did find a lot of gorgeous antique images~
Doesn't she look like she is dreaming of a long lost love~
Many beautiful black & white photos including this one...
Found in this wonderful antique music book. It is dated in the 1800's ~
Mandolin player ~
Love the writing and scrollwork on this sheet music.
More beautiful black and white antique photos...
Love this angel photograph~
More lovely sheet music.
The price was 10 for $1.00 and she had stacks of it~
How cute is this ...Little Fairy March~
Once again love these images~
I hope you enjoyed my glimpse into the past.
of these old prints.

The lady who owns the store is in her 90's and just can't run it anymore so we must gather the treasures while we can ~

Good Morning Sandi,
What we can learn from a precious 90 year old lady who is still running a business...what a wealth of information she must be.
Thank you for sharing the beautiful, elegant treasures you purchased. The graphics on old sheet music is just marvelous.
Hope this finds you doing well
Angel hugs

Morning Sandi... Great papers. We had a lovely shower overnight.... Rather foggy here this morning..... We have most of our landscaping finished and have odd and end areas to try to make look better..... It looks so much better.... Have a good day.

Indeed, I feel guilty saying I'm tired, when this lovely little lady of 90 is still running a business. What a gold mine of goodies though. Maybe you should teach her about etsy and she can just do on line sales.

GREAT finds! I would have snatched them up, too! I know you will do perfectly wonderful things with them!

I sell at an antique store about 45min. from my house...the shop is an old house and I rent the back porch.
