It has been raining for a while now here in Northern California. Lots of flooding and people badly effected. This is not the norm. We are usually in a perpetual drought. Thank goodness my family is just fine. One positive is that they vineyards are already starting to bloom and this time next month they will be stunning.
Being a rainy soggy Saturday, we went to Whistle Stop Antiques mall in Santa Rosa down by Railroad Square to take a look around and search for some treasures. It is really hit or miss like it is at most antique malls. We have been really lucky a few times and found some really great treasures like our vintage Philco Predicta TV, some fabulous Sputnik lighting and Mid-Century Modern chairs and cabinets. Whistlestop is a multi-dealer mall and even has a 2nd floor upstairs. You will find a nice assortment of vintage, retro, mid-century, kitchenalia, Pyrex, artwork, jewelry, and lots of ephemera and even a lot of vintage trains, toys, and Pez collectibles….. something no doubt for everyone.
Here’s a couple pics we snapped. A lovely vintage carousel horse, an incredible Carlo of Hollywood black stallion painting in the amazing forced perspective frame, glass displays, and even a super neat vintage 1950s chrome dining set upholstered with new retro grey fabric. I would love to take this one home but…… where to put it? It was a fun visit at Whistle Stop today!!
