Shiny Silvery Sparkly things on King

Last night's walk took us up and down King Street.
I do love studying, admiring, and photographing all the architecture, doorways, gates, and windows downtown. There are so many interesting things to see!


This was an upstairs window so I could only use my zoom and hope for the best. Its not real clear...but you can catch a glimpse of a beautiful chandelier up there!



the colorful inlaid flooring outside the old Riviera movie house



old fashioned inlaid tile floor in front of the door to what used to be the five and ten cent store. Guess there aren't any of THOSE around anymore, are there?



Let's see what's in the window at Palm Avenue....

something bright and pretty!!

Fun fall fashions......I saw lots of gauzy floaty blouses, lots of fringe, tassels, beads, leather. What trends are y'all liking?



Let's check out the cute kid's things at the Pink Chicken!... (love that sweet little poncho)




Kids on King has some neat things in their window:


Next stop...........chandeliers!! Let's go look, shall we?
this picture is blurry...........but still very "sparkly". So I still like it







Teensy little areas squeezed in between bigger buildings:







Oh I just love this little green and white plate..........isn't that so sweet??



Lots of beautiful, heavy, golden, gilt encrusted items in this shop:





the mirrors, the heavy old frames, statues, door stops, that old antique dresser, all the candelabras...........

Whats in the window at Joan Crosby's??
.............all kinds of fun things, and they don't look too  "fallish"...........its still summer here!

oooo......love those hot orange patent leather pocketbooks!!






It was a perfect evening to stroll King Street!! Do y'all love window shopping as much as I do??

  2. I love the brigjt colors of all the clothes. Here in the north, we put those away in fall, and bring out our drab black and brown outfits. It is better to live in the sunshine.

  6. The fashions looked so much like the 50's and 60's. The colors, prints and styles ...not the handbags though. Very much today. The Chandeliers were gorgeous. I will never have one of those. Much too small of home..but I love looking at them. Yep...another interesting post! :)
    Big HUGS for all that work!
