Thanksgiving at our house was perfect. Hubby did all the cooking, he is a great chef!! Turkey was moist and delicious and all the sides were extra yummy. The day was sunny and cool. We talked on the phone with family and got all caught up. It was a perfect day.

Friday we drove to our favorite antique mall up in Sacramento – ‘Midway Antique Mall’. The drive was not bad. It’s 2hrs+ each way and luckily traffic wasn’t terrible. It was sunny and a cool day and everyone around seemed to be a really good mood.Midway Antique Mall

Arriving at the mall there were plenty of cars in the parking lot. The mall didn’t advertise any sales or specials. In we went and had a blast. Hubby was so sweet and generous with me!! He also has a great eye for pretty finds for me. I got some gorgeous vintage brooches and a delightful pair of vintage Christmas tree earrings, and my latest obsession turquoise blue snowflake Pyrex. Even found some vintage Shiny Brite mercury glass ornaments.

This mall does not disappoint. We saw a stunning Heywood Wakefield dining room with chairs set. Lots of atomic dinnerware, retro and mid-century wall clocks, flamingo art, curtains, furniture, formica kitchen tables, Carlo of Hollywood art, vintage kitschy poodles, and so much more. There were also a couple Mid-Century Modern Christmas rooms setup and that was fabulous!! We even found these incredible fiberglass figurines of Wimpy and Olive Oyl from Popeye. These figurines are in a shop in the mall run by Hepcat Restorations and they have a ton of cool atomic and Mid-Century Modern art, lamps, furniture and more. You won’t be disappointed!!

After a couple hours of antiquing, we were ready to head back to the city. We had a really great day. I can’t believe Cyber Monday is here in a few hours and the count down to Christmas has started!! Stay tuned for my countdown tips!!
