Once Upon a Time

When you walk into an antique store, you walk back in time…you experience history through tangible objects. It’s fascinating seeing knick-knacks, toys, clothing, decor, and art from various eras, all in one place…it’s like several history lessons all in one shopping trip!

Despite being from the Millennial generation, I’ve always had a passion for old things…antiques, movies, songs…often wonder if I was born into the wrong generation! But having antique stores to explore is fantastic! Especially stores like our (me and SueBee) newest discovery, King Richard’s Antiques in Whittier! There’s honestly no word to describe how absolutely incredible this 4 story “history lovers” haven is. Could get lost in this place forever and still not see everything! But to capture some of the awesomeness, the Nikon was whipped out, pics taken, and a small gallery created to share with you! ~Kat, Pics by Kat and SueBee

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
