Antiques Garage

A couple weeks ago I was on the mad hunt for some stuff for the Rabbit Hole, namely some antlers, frames and bell jars. SO I decided to head over to Brooklyn to the Flea and see what I could find. Sadly, no score. Well at least not on the things on my list. I did however pick up a beautiful new vintage camera. 40's era with gorgeous art deco gold pattern on the front. She fits nicely into the family. From there I headed over to the Antiques Garage in midtown hoping for better luck. Alas it was not meant to be. Apparently it was all photo all the time for me that day. I came across this box of vintage glass negatives. Gorgeous. In mint condition from France and Belgium from the early part of the 19th century. SCORE! I could have bought the whole box but that would have been selfish. So at $4 each I brought home 2. Not sure what or how I will display them so for now they are mine to enjoy. It's the simple pleasures sometimes.

I think it would be cool to print them stacked. Makes an interesting image.

Glass, can you believe it? So cool.

This was the info that was inside the box. History my friends!
