Antique Malling


I've discovered the American Antique Mall, it's like a compressed version of an outdoor flea market- more dust and cheaper tags, and the owners can often throw in some local narrative/historical perspective on your items.

Unused Tumbler note pad. Carved, unpainted wooden swan, super simple and sensitive hand behind this one, marked Elroy Pick 1978 on underside. John H. Batdorf's, WW2, Duffle bag. Detail of 1950's bonded cotton trench/mackintosh with sealed seams and neat tailoring.
