I'm back in San Francisco after a wonderful and inspiring trip to Austin, I am so excited to get into the workshop to start some new projects. Austin has so many antique stores and thrift shops to explore and I spent three days walking through dusty, jam packed shelves of treasures! After finding a great little coffee shop, Monkeys Nest, I headed to the first shop. Out of the Past is a small shop with items from floor to ceiling, everything is piled on top of everything and it is a place where you really have to dig but well worth it because I came out with a few treasures! The rest of the shops I visited were smaller in terms of inventory, more organized and didn't require hand sanitizer.
There was so much to look at! Your classic shop finds like brass animals, odd ball items like baby doll mannequins, fine antique leather goods and of course furniture from beautifully restored to artistically painted! Thank you Austin for the treasures...I'll be back!
