An Old Curiosity Shop
We drove through apple orchards full of white blossoms with the windows down listening for spring peepers and smelling the coming storm on the wind. Small, quaint houses and abandoned barns are passed on our mission to reach a small antique and vintage shop. We arrive to a yard full of junk and curiosities. Metal figurines of flying pigs, stone statues, doors, and even the occasional tub fills the grassy lawn with interest and eccentricity. Inside hosts even more bizarre items from deer's heads with vintage wedding veils on top to a collection of vintage telephones. It's easy to see why it's crowded; every corner holds the potential for a hidden treasure.
