Window Shopping

A few weeks ago I did most of my Christmas shopping, unfortunately none of it involved vintage or antique shopping. After a quick trip to the mall, my 8 year old son and I headed to the old main street to check out one of my favorite toy stores that I have visited since I was a child. The store is filled with toys and tucked in among the items for sale are wonderful vintage toys that give the shop charm. Just look at this giant Steiff giraffe.

As soon as I walked up to the front window I wanted to go back in time to buy some of the toys they had on display. Just look at all these Steiff puppets.

The big brown bear in the back corner of the window is usually standing in the front of the store during the summer months and most kids give it a hug when they walk into the store. My guess is it stands about 6 feet tall.

I did go back to this store to buy something my son had liked and was was pretty bummed to see these new puppets now on display in the window.

I just love that this little shop lets me enjoy the old toys while the kids get to shop for the new ones.
