downtown

So one of my favorite thing about working downtown is the abundance of cool shops, fun restaurants, and antique stores all within walking (or short driving distance). Yesterday I took advantage of and spent my lunch hour wandering around Woolworths, my favorite antique shop. My parents used to take us here when we were younger, so they could shop around and we could eat at the old fashioned lunch counter. It is a very charming place. While I could have spent well over an hour there and purchased many things, I was looking for something specific. A small bedside table for the guest room.

I found it. Not sure how "antique" it is. But is the perfect size, shape, and finish. Needless to say, it was a successful lunch hour.

Piece by piece, the room is coming along!

I like it Toni. I love Woolworths as well. I've bought so many cute things there. I'll have to make it a point to stop by there this weekend. You really have great taste.

LLA--I guess I should have clarified--downtown Bakersfield,CA not LA. Very, very different :) But I love it just the same. Next time I will be more specific for the non-Bakersfield crowd :)thanks for stopping by!
