Happiness and Heartbreak All In One Day

Here is my happiness for today.... these great old photo studio cases I snagged from an auction today...

And a few other things to add to my happiness.... Notice the record player, been looking for one so we can play old records at the shop and bingo, I scored one today!

This is part of my heartbreak cause I didn't get this one but it did go to a good home, the lady who use to work for the studio for 15 years, isn't it amazing.....

These are the kind of machines that cause me heartache....

Especially when they are parked next to an cool old building like this.....

Check out the wonderful architecture on the top of this old beauty....

I am guessing it is going to be the next casualty of a demolition....

They have it all fenced off and the equipment setting there waiting for morning to come, I am going to make a few phone calls in the am to see if I can talk someone into salvaging some of that great old tin architecture from being destroyed, wish me luck!



  1. You always find the greatest stuff! I wish I could follow you around for just a week! Would love to come up sometime soon, but I don't think I'll have any time until after the Christmas open house.
    Good luck with the building!

  2. Those cases are really amazing...I love the graphics! The auction was loaded with great items~ a cupboard for $1? Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments!

  3. Love those old cases. My Maiden name is Mauch... oh so close. I'd have gotten one from your for sure it there was an H on the end.


  4. NEW FOLLOWER!!! Love the stuff you find!!

  5. I think you should chain yourself to that building so they DON'T knock it down! No one appreciates the workmanship of old buildings anymore.

    Are you having the shop hop again this year? Megan and I would love to come to Coleridge!


  6. L-O-V-E it! Where do you find these amazing auctions?? Good luck with your rescue mission! Keep us posted!
