Flea market shopping turned into antique mall hopping




It was pouring rain at the Alameda Flea market 
So Mary  Kaylin and I
decided to have a nice breakfast, 
and go antique mall hopping  
We went to:
Olde town antique mall in Pleasanton
Paulines antiques in Alameda

Down town Alameda has the cutest
closed Art deco flower garden/shop
We couldn't help taking outfit pictures!!

I am wearing:

Dress: 1970s leaf print from Sally Jane vintage
Rain boots: 1980's wellie pets
Tie: 1930 little boy crochet tie from The cats pajamas
Necklace: 1950s celluloid leaf necklace word as a head piece
Bracelet: 1930 Bakelite fox clamper
Purse: 1950s wicker  frog purse

I just listed a wicker horse purse on my etsy...check it out!

I agree with Lydia's "Bonkers" comment - but both of us mean it as a high compliment! I definitely can learn a little something from you. Thanks for adding a little fun to my afternoon. :-)
