Santa Monica Antique Offerings...


I recently stopped in at the Santa Monica Antique Mart.  They had such a wide variety
of offerings.  There was definitely something for everyone. 







I think we are all aware of my love of silver...





And alabaster...


As I said, so many things to see...




I love this piece...



So much to look at...









It's always fun to return to an antique place because there is always something new to
find and enjoy.

What have you been  up to lately?

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Wow! I don't know how we managed to miss this shop when we were in Santa Monica last year! I love the rusty iron piece that you showed in one of the first photos. And I am drooling over all of that gorgeous silver!!! Lots of temptations:)

What a treat it would be to visit that market! I'd love to get lost in the shelves of china and silver.

I would love to have the "little Dog"!
You picked a few very lovely details and can imagine where your eyes and heart went to lead your camera on to...
And - of course - we know that you like silver! Lovely pieces! Did you bought any?
Many greetings from Périgord,

That alabaster lamp is beyond gorgeous. I passed one up at a garage sale because I am an idiot. Have a happy fourth!
