There’s a great 4 storey antiques emporium near us, and its one of my 7 year old son’s favourite places to go and browse around. Each floor is packed from floor to ceiling with everything from vintage clothes to old china, furniture and fascinating random old things. It’s like a treasure-trove and it’s a great place to spend a few hours, although I must admit the customer service there is *rubbish* which totally puts me off.
It’s run by the kind of people who think they’re doing you a favour by selling you stuff, so we don’t actually buy things from there very often…
When we were looking around the other day my son came across these 2 vintage postcard albums, and instantly fell in love with them and the idea of collecting postcards. They could only be bought as a pair (even though they don’t match and look like they’re from completely different decades) so he paid for one and I bought the other.
The long one is art-deco style and I’m guessing maybe 1930s – can you help us date them?
