antique shopping in hopkins

Saturday afternoon my friend Inga and I hopped over to Hopkins, MN. One of my favorite things about shopping with Inga is we see different things. We can look at the same display and she notices the jewelry, textiles, kitchenware. I notice the vintage logos, children's toys and mid century accessories. We've shopped a few times together now and often spot things for each other.

Vintage fisher-price circus. Love! Priced for resale, I have to find these toys at thrift stores to be able to afford them.

Beautiful Hudson Bay blanket. If I had known they are $370 new I would have bought this one! It was priced around $150.

It was the perfect day, warm with changing leaves. A perfect day for shopping! I bought a few unique Christmas presents. And a vintage ruler that I plan to hang like a star at Christmas.

Do you shop antique stores? What do you look for when you shop?
