A Glimpse into the Past



Whenever I travel, I always make a point to visit the local antique shops. During my recent trip to Missouri, I was fortunate enough to come across an antique mall called Forever Antiques located in Farmington. The advantage to visiting an antique mall is that these large showrooms typically represent many (often times hundreds of) unique dealers in their own individually leased spaces. As I explored the endless aisles of vintage collectibles, I was in awe of how much history each piece held and how at one time, these items belonged to someone that lived several decades or even a century ago. These rare treasures truly give us a glimpse into the past. Photos by: Style-Haus

Gorgeous photos! I love antique shopping so much. :) Especially places that are out in the middle of nowhere. They always seem to have the most unique items.

I live in Missouri! I've heard of Farmington but I have no idea how close it is to me. I'm on the KS/MO border. :P
