Whenever I ask my children, Hey Guys, wanna go SHOPPING?! They know exactly what that means. It’s code.
It means heading to one of our favorite antique stores and goofing around.
It means trying on silly hats. Band hats, military hats, tea hats, fancy hats, smelly old hats.
It means checking out stuff from the good ol’ days like Scooby Doo metal lunch boxes and telephones with curly cords. Imagine that!
Hey Mom, what’s this?!
Um, it’s a typewriter. I typed my English papers with one exactly like that in high school.
We pour through vintage books and magazines; check out matching salt and pepper shakers; Aunt Jemima, squirrel, and hobo figurines; rocking horses and rocking chairs; mismatched silverware; dolls with broken limbs.
Odds and ends from the past that delight us as we peer through the aisles and squeal Check this out!
All it takes is an hour to pack in tons of fun and bring some of the past to the present. Oh and take some selfies.
