viva la vintage

One of my favorite pastimes is buying vintage goodies for re-sale or consignment. That being said, I don't typically find myself in antique malls because the mark-ups are usually beyond my budget. This week I made an exception, an old school house - turn antique mall in LaFayette, Oregon was just to intriguing to pass by without stopping. I only left with one item, though that cutie-pie cuckoo is still on my mind and not a moment has passed that I haven't lamented leaving the $700 Leicaflex. I'm really pleased with the Russian wall hanging I scored and even better, it was under $15.
