Antiquing In Pampa, TX

Yesterday my son wanted to go to a town about an hour from here and check out the antique shops.  We were a little disappointed, but it was still fun to have a day to spend together. 

We found abut 5 shops and one thrift store.  I only got photos of one antique shop.  It was really unusual.

A nice older man owns and runs the shop.  It had a few items like old bottles and pottery that I liked, but it was mostly rocks and fossils. 

Hence the dinosaurs out front.

My son found a 1996 Coca Cola bottle for $1 he bought.  I think he wants to drink it, but I really don’t want him to.

In another shop, I found a printer’s tray.  One of our antique shops has some printer blocks that I think I will add to the tray.

I grouped it with my new printable I made (click here to get it)

I also found a Wallace ironstone small white pitcher.

It will be great for fresh flowers. 

We had lunch in the popular Coney Island Café that has been open since 1933.

I loved the red stools.

I ordered a hotdog and my son wanted a cheeseburger.  He was content sucking down his Coke while waiting for the burger.  He is addicted to them and I have to limit how many he gets.  That’s why I think he wants to drink his 1996 bottle of Coke.

It was just a fun place to sit and look around.


Thanks for stopping by.  Do you have any big plans for spring break?
