Lula B's..a store trip

We took a trip to Lula B's and there were tons of things to eat, sleep, and sleep walk vintage.
(This read as a childs desk. I would paint this baby and put
it in a corner to look cute)
(Modern)
(Brought back memories. They were $5 each)
(Cute decorative piece)
(Got Milk?)
(We don't smoke, but my Granny did and had this very ash tray)
(I wanted these, but I didn't want to spend $25 for them)
(They were high glossed. I almost bought them)
(Very Hollywood Regency)
(Just thought it was cool)
(To expensive for my pocket, but great piece)
(This faux bamboo lamp and the one below it had me at hello)
(I liked this table. )
(Theses were $1250.......)
(This was 40% off. I was trying to see if it was an original but could not tell)
(I just thought this was cool)
(Now this I liked. It is caned at the bottom)
(He was charging $450 for this piece including the mirror)
(I love this table. I would paint it though)

Lots of pictures huh? Well I picked up NADA! But Mr. Styles walked away with some army men, and comic books that had him smiling. I literally had to tell him LETS GO!
Words from Mr. Styles:
1. Take your time
2. If you take your husband and he finds an interest, don't rush him
3. Go often for updated items
4. Don't settle for the marked price. Try to work a deal
5. Ask about the vintage store events where many stores get together for a huge sale

...oh and bring antibacterial wipes for the after

THE END

Love, love, love that bubble chandelier! Oh, what I would've done to bring that home. Looks like there was some great stuff there. I love antique malls, but most of the time their prices aren't great . . . . :(

You know, I've been by this place sooooo many times (including late at night while walking between bars a few years back!) - but I've never been in! Looks like they have tons of cute stuff!

And I love that your hubby went with you! He looks like he's ready to haul away anything you want to buy!! (Nice arms!)
