Two weekends ago, Jeremy and I got away to Pretoria for one night. The beautiful thing about living in community is that we can easily do a childcare swap for a night away. We decided to hit up the Antique Route, one of our favorite hotspots in Pretoria. I had a list of things I was on the hunt for. I didn’t get everything on my list but it sure was fun to look.
I’ve had a bedroom makeover going on the past several weeks and at the top of my list was a wardrobe for hanging our clothes. I told myself to look at the potential and not just what I saw on the outside. Well, not only did I like what I saw with this one, but we got it for a great price! I love the dark wood against my light blue walls.
I also grabbed a few fun things…tin planters for outside plants, an old fashioned hat and gloves for a certain little girl (photo shoot planning is currently in the works), and a typewriter. The kids have been asking for a typewriter, so this was perfect. I wonder if I’ll be able to find a new ribbon for it. Despite that, it’s already been great fun for pretend play.
I really love finding old treasures. Do you like antique shopping?
