I did a little antique shopping in Santa Barbara this past weekend. I hadn't visited Antique Alley in Santa Barbara before but I will definitely make it a regular stop from now on. A really fun place to trawl through. A few photos of my finds and purchases below.
I'm still thinking about this painting by a local artist, which was bought by the owner of Antique Alley from a garage as the result of a divorce. Very reasonably priced.
Great Italian lamp with crackle effect:
A little table we scored for $22 that is just the thing for our living room.
A lucite container with a swinging lid that is perfect for my ever-growing costume jewelry collection, $20:
And the pièce de résistance, these amazing nesting dolls by a Mexican artist, $34:
In order: Dali, Van Gogh, Picasso, Rembrandt, and the last little guy is (his name is painted on the back of his tails and his sweet hat is removable). I just love them!
We also bought an extremely heavy brass cow candle holder type thing, probably Indian, and I can't decide if it's awesome or terrifying. Photos to follow!
