Today our Crew Member, Monica Taylor, takes us on her gypsy travels to Wine Country, an area of Northern California in the United States known worldwide as a premium wine-growing region where viticulture and wine-making have been practiced in the region since the mid-19th century.
I recently attended a wedding in Temecula, California. This is a very cute town with a fun downtown. Whenever I am in a new city, I love to check out local antique shops. You never know what you will find… and I was lucky enough to find some real gems this time round! See for yourself!
I have been searching for an vintage typewriter for a while. I saw several on this trip. They were all in working order, ready foreign used.
We found this 1936 Royal with its matching case. It was too good of a deal to pass up so now this beauty is mine!
Old photos are always intriguing. I love looking at them and sometimes if I am lucky, there is a story on the back.
I find it really interesting finding the life-stories of people in the photos.
I love taking pictures of displays. They often give me ideas for decorating my home. This one looks like it’s been taken straight from our Architextures – the body form and leather suitcases! Don’t you just love it?!?
When I get really lucky, I find old document rubber stamps. I love using these on my cards. One says “Coach Ticket” and the other says “Burlington Transportation Co. Trucking Division.”
I have been on the look out for a vintage stamp holder, but no luck this time around.
Here are a couple of other fun finds for you to feast your eyes on…
But I think the best find of the day was this vintage Coffee Grinder.
It does work, but needs some cleaning and TLC. We hope to get it into perfect working condition.
Thank you for joining me on my little vintage adventure.
