My husband had an appointment at the dentist office today. We drove to the old part of Glendale on Glendale Ave. We passed some interesting places and saw interesting people. I spotted an antique shop and on the way back we stopped. Empire Antiques carries mainly vintage European furniture, chandeliers, china, and all sorts of collectibles. Their furniture is very ornate with the wood rich in color and grain. The owner is from Holland and she imports lots of beautiful French pieces! One of my images shows wooden shoes lined up for my camera. She has many pieces from old churches now torn down. She had several old wooden clocks I captured on camera. With permission granted I snapped a few photos. That was the only thing I carried away; digital images of Eurpeon charm from along ago.
