Lots of good things coming, but for just a second I want to talk about my penchant for old things – Vintage.
While in one of my favorite cities – Savannah, over my break during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, my sister and I stole away from the pack and got in some much appreciated antique mall time together. Picker sisters (kind of), but neither one of us likes to get too dirty or work that hard to find our treasures. It is one of my favorite and most happy pastimes.
On this particular outing we were in unfamiliar territory and still managed to sniff out one of the finer antique malls in Savannah. It was a small place on one of the many scenic squares just off Broughton Street. If my SCAD student is reading this maybe she can post a comment and remind me of the name.
I gravitate towards “visual artist/graphic designer” type geek stuff; old paintboxes, signs and letterforms, cameras and designer tools of a bygone era.
This little gem is like a mini overhead projector. Have only plugged it in once, but it works! Basically you just lay it on an image and it projects on a wall…or whatever. Gets mighty hot, so I am not sure I will trust it for long periods. I just LOVE the looks of it, and it will probably just sit there on my vintage book case with my other vintage thingamabobs looking pretty and nostalgic.
For all you vintage geeks out there..it’s BAKELITE! WHOOP WHOOP!
Happy treasure hunting. Tell me about your finds!
