A Weakness for Antiques...

I have a few weaknesses.... which include tall guys, dark chocolate and antiques. Yes, you heard me, Antiques! I'm quite the old lady in that sense....I love anything vintage and anything that contains history. That is why I loved the day Meggasus and I recently spent together, when we ventured over to Colinsville, which is home to the best antique store we've ever been in called "Antiques on the Farmington"... We took a few pictures along the way that we thought you would enjoy!

We took a photo of the inside just so you could get a sense of just how massive this antique store is... and this was only one of two floors!

Meggasus and I couldn't get over the amazing selection of antique jewelry! Each piece was unique . Take a look at one of the displays....

We just adored these rings!

There were too many scarves to count!

I'm a sucker for a black fur coat! This one was stunning...

This was another one of our favorite displays... this outfit is so sweet and summery! I love the details in the cardigan.

Meggasus and I took many photos during our visit.... There were just so many little treasures just waiting to be discovered!! Stay tuned for more photos from this adventure in the near future ;)

vintage shops are divine, I collect vintage postcards. Tall guys dark chocolates and antiques sound like a great combination, I'm pretty sure I'd be unable to resist a tall guy in a 1940's style suit bearing a box of dark truffles.

That looks like a dream place for me. Dark chocolate, tall men and antiques sounds pretty much like perfection to me.

I love it so much i'm following! the antiques store looks like my heaven on earth... i'm go to boston this summer for a few weeks are there any thrift/vintage or any really cool shops you would recommend? not really big brands but something I wouldn't be able to find back home in London xxx
