What's Inside?

Chapter Two: The Courtland Antique Emporium.

If you haven't read yesterday's post, start there first! I promise, you'll smile and be happy! 
Antiques, nostalgic items galore and vintage things! A collector's dream!

We just had so much fun in this tiny Ontario village!
I didn't know what to photograph and what not to, so I just snapped away!

Come fly with me! This baby airplane was about six feet from head to tail!

Of course, I gravitated to the Fenton glass. All this blue just makes me dizzy with want.

 Anything familiar here? 
Go have a look at:
He has recently featured Cabbage Patch Dolls.

Remember when taking a picture meant two weeks to see the results? Did you have a Browne like I did?

Ah yes! The Ancient Order of Foresters. 
Google them sometime. An Insurance company actually. 
When I was little, I thought they were woodsmen!
(My uncle was you see...?)


The work and detail in this sash is exceptional though.

I couldn't resist this enamel kettle. I should have bought it just for my deck!

The Arrow shirt factory was not too far away in this area. 
This was an entire box of collars!

And every now and then we'd see some Americans!
Roseville pottery! Maybe this isn't as pretty as some of their pieces, but remarkable all the same.
And I walked out with nothing! WaH!

All pictures taken with my digital camera: My Nikon P90

My sister had a Brownie camera. I remember the case being very sturdy and full of snaps. Of course I played with it when she wasn't home. Never took a picture though.
I am not familiar with the rest of the items here. That is some wild shade of blue. Wow.

Oh my, you do have good will power. Thanks for sharing that wonderful place with us. I don't think I could have walked out with empty hands at all.

Looks like you found a gem of a place! That blue glass is stunning and I absolutely love the tea cup and saucer with the silver grape vine from your last post.

I simply canNOT believe you walked out with nothing! You did take pictures, are they aware of that? Awesome pictures, great adventure, Lucy!
