Yesterday my two friends and I went to this antique shop that I've been wanting to go to for weeks. I'm so glad we did, because it was amazing! It was so big, and they had so many pretty things. I'm surprised I didn't buy more than I did, because I was definitely tempted too (especially teacups, they had dozens of beautiful teacups!). I ended up just purchasing three things. In the above picture is a vintage plate that I found, and I'm using it to hold a few pieces of my favorite jewelry. Isn't the plate pretty? I love how it fades into pink around the sides, and the edges have crackled gold covering them.
The other two things I bought were a lovely pin and old soap tin. The pin will be gorgeous clasped onto a shawl or cardigan.
The soap tin is the brand "Yardley" and I tried looking up how old it might be, but I couldn't find anything on this specific one. Online I found a similar soap tin from this brand that was made in the 1920's, so that would be so cool if this one was also from that era!
The pin and the tin are not actually for me (as much as I would love to keep them!). I bought them with a specific person in mind, so they are going to be Christmas presents! ♥
