Antiquing in Reno, Nevada
I recently took a trip to visit my older brother in Reno, Nevada. One thing I love about Reno is all of the great antique malls in the area. So, my mom, brother, and I headed out antiquing one day while I was there. At the top of the agenda was a stop by In-N-Out to prepare for a full day of shopping.
|First we had to get some burgers for energy.|
|Virginia Street Antique Mall|
|Lovely pieces of furniture|
|True touch of that Nevada feel.|
|I had to take a picture of this lamp. Eeek.|
This surprise was the entire room dedicated to the Red Hat Society--wall to wall red hats and dresses. I am such a fan of big crazy hats, so this room was lovely to explore.
|All the red a girl could want.|
The third place had a very different feel than the first two. It is called Junkee and is part antique store, thrift shop, and costume shop. I was really looking forward to visiting this store and I was not disappointed. The antique store had so many beautiful items. I would have loved to buy any one of its many pillbox hats.

|Awesome melting clock at the entrance (something very Dalí about this piece of art)|
I did not get anything this day; I was on a very tight budget for my trip home. However, it was such a great day to get to spend with my brother and my mom. My brother was a good sport throughout the whole ordeal as well (he is not so big on antiquing)--even coining my favorite new term 'scam-tiques' for products that lack legitimacy. If you ever stop by the 'biggest little city in the world,' check out some of the local spots for antiques and thrifting finds.
