Double Take had the most fabulous selection of bakelite I have seen in a long, long time. I spent a good chunk of time standing over that case, daydreaming about walking out with every single horse head brooch and a stack of bangles on my arm. Nothing quite lights my fire in the antique stores like a case of brightly colored bakelite!
There was also an incredible selection of vintage clothes (mostly Western), which I unfortunately forgot to photograph, because I was too busy pulling things off the rack to try on (well, that and trying to chase around a very bored two year old!). I tried on a few beautiful squaw dress sets, and was ogling over the stunning selection of hand-painted Mexican skirts, but I ended up leaving with only a sweet little dress for Lucy.
The upstairs in Double Take is devoted to the house wares and furnishings. I had to speed through this section, because Lucy refused to get back in the ergo, and letting her off the leash (so to say, we do not actually use a leash!) would be like a bull in a china shop. There were some incredibly pieces upstairs though, just look at all that Fiesta ware! I was also excited to see the Red Wing dishes, which I featured a while back in one of my vintage dinnerware posts.
If you ever make your way to Santa Fe, New Mexico be sure to check out Double Take, it is a vintage/western lover’s heaven!
