Booth 96 & Scary Mannequins...

Yesterday, I couldn't resist visiting a few antique shops...there's one in Scottsdale that seems more like a museum than an antique shop.

It has a lot of taxidermy animals, mannequins, and interesting collectible artifacts or "higher-end antiques"...just bizarre things.




Look at these wax heads from the Madame Tussaud's wax
museum of the Last Supper...very lifelike.


These figures were in the back of the store behind a bunch of picture frames...not something you'd normally see in an antique shop.

I have to admit that as much as I love wax museums, that I was a little creeped out by this display...yes, I know it's based off of Da Vinci's Last Supper, but....

Wouldn't you feel a tad scared being in this antique store all alone at night?


Here's a booth with antique telephones...not scary like the mannequins and various animal heads that adorn the shop. I think it's neat how much technology has evolved.

These telephones look like they have faces, don't ya think?


Here's a current photo of my booth..."Booth 96" at the Brass Armadillo in Phoenix.

The Brass Armadillo is one of the largest antique malls in the Phoenix area. I think it's about 40,000 sq ft and could take hours to wander through.


I just added a ton of Vintage-style scrapbook papers (12 sheets for $3), ephemera, vintage Bingo Cards, Shabby furniture, and other paperie curiosities. Great prices!

It's almost like a little mini Scrapbook store!
Be sure to visit if you are in the Phoenix area.

Oh yes, creepy indeed. When I first looked at the picture I thought they were people all lined up for something. They'd be good for security though.
