Vintage paper haulLast month my kids and I went to Salt Lake City to along with my husband who was attending a conference. The conference provided day care for children of attendees so I essentially had 3 days to entertain myself. Our hotel was in downtown, about 7 blocks away from an antique mall.

Over the course of 2 days I combed every stall, through the contents of every vendor. It took about 3 hours total. I was looking for vintage papers; things with interesting illustrations, color patterns, etchings, photos, hand-written letters with pretty writing, maps, paper currency, etc.

Here are some of the more interesting things I picked up:

And I loved this postcard from 1906. It cost me 50 cents.

In all I spent about $40 and enjoyed myself thoroughly. What am I going to do with all of it? I’ll explain in my next post.
