treasure hunt

when i saw this shop, i was speechless.
the whole shop is stocked with different antique "felt" wooden boxes.
& i couldn't stop humming rod stewart's song "that old feeling".....

some small ones have sizes suitable for my craft, jewels, paper cutting or anything;
or large ones like suitcases suitable for cloth and magazines.......
it was a huge challenge for me to pick out these 2 from the stacks.
i was really really falling in the shop.
kept asking the lady to take this and that down for me to have a look.
& she was very happy and proud to say that her dad made all these.
if i was not with my family, i could probably be staying there for few hours.
i must visit there again soon.



the one with "SOAP" on it was the original one i picked,
i want to put my hand-made soaps in there.....isn't it just meant to be mine?
but i turned out to get the 2 matched color boxes.....
maybe next time, i will take you home, wait for me.

Shabby, vintage and chic! What not to love?! Vintages do have a price but you get to own a piece of the old world charm ;)
