I made a flea-market stop the day before I found real silhouettes at the wildlife refuge. I thought it would be a good spot for a photo scavenger-hunt, so I’m making an extra post this week with my results.
I still love to look, but even though it’s tempting, photos are my only acquisitions these days. Flea Markets and Antique Malls are also good stops for price-checking and research for what to do with my own stuff. Here’s my photo gallery of ready-made silhouettes from bygone days — a hundred-year survey courtesy of the Jesse James Antique Mall in St. Joe MO, and W.D. Pickers, just up the road a piece in Platte City.

I’m beginning to think this may be the start of a new pinboard.
Do you have any antique silhouettes?
Wow….. you found a lot of silhouettes! And what a great way to do “shopping”…..i.e. take photographs of the things that interest you.
The funny thing is, I never really noticed before how many silhouettes there are in antique stores. Thanks for commenting — Sandy
One of the things I like about these prompts is that they “open my eyes” to what I wouldn’t normally see. I wonder if that is why you noticed them this time and not others.
I’ll bet that’s it — and it always amazes me that once I’m thinking about something, or have just read about it, it suddenly seems to pop up everywhere (guess I just didn’t notice before!)
