Quick Trip To The Antique Store

Last night before the ice storm, we took a quick drive to the antique store the next town over.  I love this store.  All antique stores are fun, but this place is so big that you always see something new.  I did find these two little gems:

A coke box with the cubbies still in.  I have been wanting to hang one of these up for a trinket shelf.

This is a very old cigar box.  I though this would be beautiful to hold little odds and ends.

We decided to put the cigar box in the TV cubbie for now.  The coke box we hung in the living room above the Eames lounge chair.  For now all that we put in it are some antique glass candies.  They are a little lost in there, but I needed a place to put them.  Over time I’m sure we will collect more trinkets to put in there.  I think it looks really cute.  Any other suggestions?

This was the spot we chose for the coke box. Don't mind those awful curtains! 🙂

The back of the box has a bit of a wierd shape, but this is a close up of the little candies if you can make them out.
