While we were down in the city, on our way to one of the bookstores, we came across a strange little antique shop. As soon as we saw the window, we were entranced and just had to go in. Photography was not allowed in the store unfortunately, but we got a few good shots through the windows.
They had everything from Asian imports, to full suite of knight’s armor, to furniture that looked fit to be served to Marie Antoinette. They even had a few pieces of china (one looked Russian) “on sale.”
The prices were impossible to read and it brought to mind what my mother always says, “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it…”
The highlight was a beautiful yellow jade ship-castle thingy. The reflections in the glass make it seem as though it’s underwater. The look reminds me of a very Chinese version of Dragon-Sea-King’s (Ryujin) castle!
I really wish I could remember where this store was…
