catching up: Spinning Wheel Antiques

My dear friends Sara & Bob decided to open a little antique shop in Glendale’s Historic District. Spinning Wheel Antiques is the realization of a long-time dream for them. They had a few booths in various antique “malls” but those venues were hard hit by the economic downturn so closed their doors.

20150509_100606Bob & Sara looked around town for a place to open their own shop, and found this adorable 1942 bungalow available in Catlin Court.

I have had the joy of being able to help out now & then. I love the way Sara merchandises their collection of vintage finds. opening (10)

Bob has “man stuff” in one of the rooms opening (24)and vintage tools in the mudroom off the kitchen. opening (52)He’s also allowed to display his “kitschy” items in the closet. Smileopening (31)

The kitchen overflows with beautiful wooden dry sinks, cast iron utensils & hand-carved rolling pins.opening (49)

My favorites are the glass displays in the dining room.11143314_678927365566808_99171551425070010_n

This incredible old thread cabinet catches your eye as you enter the shopopening (6)

and this Edwardian mourning suit always catches me off guard: “How can I help you, ma’am?”20150509_100138

So, come see them anytime you are in Glendale. Well, not anytime, because they’re only open Saturdays until Sara retires from teaching school…10360605_10206521569506769_2150798339843090186_n
