One of our favorite cheap pastimes is to wander the endless museum-like acres at one of the local indoor antique malls. We buy the occasional quality houseware or unique gift for someone, but mostly we’re there to time-travel. It’s a good (and affordable) way to spend a rainy winter day walking around, imagining a long ago age of kerosene lighting and weird mysterious torture implements. It helps us keep our goal in mind of moving to TN and setting up shop.
Here are a few of the more picturesque scenes we came upon. The ship model was huge and very detailed. The saw-looking things are from actual sawfish. There were alligators around every bend. (Don’t shoot the messenger!) There was an actual working old-fashioned phone booth (not pictured.) There were authentic Victorian nooks and crannies. It was very timey-wimey.
