One of the highlights of our vacation was the morning we spent in Deadwood. We stayed the weekend at a lodge in Lead, South Dakota, and on Saturday morning Jon and I got coffee, explored historic Deadwood and stopped at a few shops…my favorite kind. The ones full of old stuff.
My favorite was Hawlik’s Antique Emporium in Deadwood.
It was full of a huge variety of antiques, of all kinds.
I feel a pang of regret for not getting this little critter. But Jon has his heart set on finding a real stuffed Jackalope, so we kept looking.
This pin made me giggle.
We totally had a set of these Magic Mitts when I was growing up. It was the only way I was ever good at catch, because the ball would velcro itself to the mitt before I had time to drop it.
And this….this section was my very favorite. “The kitchen stuff.” Dishes, casseroles, jars, utensils, china, teacups…I could have spent all afternoon there.
And that’s where I found my prize.
Isn’t she beautiful? I love, love, love the minty green. The scale has a new home in our kitchen!
We stopped at one other antique shop on our way home where I picked up this adorable wooden Coca Cola crate, stamped Chattanooga 1965. It’s now for sale in my Etsy shop, Rosy Blu Vintage! Check it out here.
Have you ever been antiquing around Lead and Deadwood? Let me know if there’s any other shops I should go to the next time I go back! (Because we will be back. That was a dynamite weekend away!)
