For years now I have been an antiquing enthusiast. When I was young my mother and grandmother used to take me to flea markers and antique stores with them, and I would roam around until something pretty caught my eye.
Today I still enjoy going antiquing and now have Scott to share that delightful experience of searching through every nook and cranny of a packed antique store with me.
Last weekend Scott and I went to a local antique store to scout out some pretty treasures.
The Antique Plaza in downtown Mesa has some of the prettiest antique dishes I have ever seen.
See the percolator? Scott bought me a similar one for my birthday last May, and soon after my grandma claimed it for herself.
I feel very lucky to have a guy in my life that is just as interested in old things as I am. We can get lost in the aisles of vintage together for hours and never get bored. He's kind of obsessed with the idea of "picking," (as am I) and finding the perfect vintage treasure. Somedays we find that perfect item, but other days we leave empty handed. I feel like that's the fun of it though, as antiquing is a ever changing situation that seems to just get better every time you go.
