An antique store can have things you can’t find any place else. I usually shop at Goodwill but I go to an antique store for a bunch of stamps, postcards, and other stationary items. In my opinion, there’s a secret to shopping at goodwill and an antique store. You just gotta know what you’re looking for an have an open mind. Anyways, if you’ve never gone to an antique store than you should go as soon as possible! You’ll find so many different kind of treasures.
Here’s what you’ll find at an antique store!
Rotary phone— if you don’t know already, a rotary phone was used by rotating the dial to the number instead of pressing buttons. I think these are great accessory pieces to any home. You may not be able to use them but putting it up on display can make things come together. My aunt has a bunch on antiques above her kitchen cabinets, including a light blue rotary phone. It’s my favorite piece!
Typewriters— most people end up buying these for the keys. I’ve seen people turn them into magnets for their fridge, necklaces, and wall art. But, I think keeping it all together and putting it in your living room or on a desk is a nice accessory piece. I don’t think I could take them apart. I mean, they’re a little pricey and it can be hard to find one in good condition.
Bottles and cans— these little bottles are very popular at antique stores. Cheap too. You might be wonder why someone would buy these or what to do with them. Well, you can repurpose them into something useful. Like putting them in your kitchen and turning them into salt and pepper shakers, or fill with flour and sugar. I bought a larger one and used it to store my sewing kit.
