market treasures

I went to a little market today and was so surprised to come across such treasures. I always wondered why photographs and anything with handwriting was not cherished by families. These wonderful postcards date back to 1919 and are in impeccable condition and such stunning portraits. 

The one of the gentlemen I find particularly interesting. The detail in their clothing, the fob-watch chain, the boots and those moustaches are just mezmerizing. 

I also picked up these cute whale salt and pepper shakers to add to my ever growing collection :-) all up this cost me $4. Needless to say, I will certainly be heading back there again.
