The Old Barn Antiques in San Juan Capistrano

Happy TGIF Friends...
I hope you all have had a great week filled with creativity & fun!

I wanted to share with you one more of my favorite places to go
when I'm in San Juan Capistrano...I ADORE,
The Old Barn Antiques Mall!!

First of's HUGE & I LOVE that!!!

Secondly...the prices are usually really quite reasonable, with many vendors
running sales of 10% ~ 40% off their booth.

And Thirdly...being across the street from the mission, they have some
really awesome Vintage Religious Icons, which I am also in love with!

These were just a few pics of some of my favorites...
I need to go back & get some more of the holy cards.

Beautiful Art Nouveau Silver Vanity Set...
I wanted that!!!

Old Vintage Barkcloth to die for...

& of course, colorful Feistaware. I was so excited...I had a wedding
last weekend for a young couple & one of things that was on the bride's
registry was aqua, reproduction Feistaware. So you can imagine how
excited I was to find this cute salt & pepper set for her. I took them
back to my Dad's & cleaned them all up, but 2 old corks were stuck
inside both of them. My Dad & I must have spent a hour trying to get
those things out. It was nearly impossible!! ;)

There was a lovely old photo album there...

probably given for Christmas to
Frederick Henry Hawkins in 1887.

It always makes me sad when I find something like this. I think about family
members like me, who would cherish forever a family heirloom filled with
so much history. Where is this family? Why did they ever let this go?
Is there someone out there that would cry for joy to have it? I am soooo
serious about this, that I actually have reunited a baby book I bought at
an antique shop with it's 62 year old BABY...but that's another story!!!
