Charlott's Antiques

An unassuming building on Austin Highway, this warehouse is packed to the gills. Which makes it a lot of fun to search through. Many, many shelves of dishes - from precious, gloriously rainbow-colored on a blue background, glass dessert goblets, to everyday salt & pepper shakers, with a unique design. There are expensive collectible dog figurines, and low-cost original dog tags from WWII. There is an especially interesting section of vintage clothes which I thought would make wonderful costumes. A fitted sheath dress (handmade in the 50's) with interesting appliques around the collar, furs, a WWI uniform shirt and hat. Charlott has evidently been in business since 1960-something. Her place had a nice feel, fairly good prices and lots of variety.
