{Miniature handmade German grocery store ~ love the meat cleaver and chopping block!}

More antiques from Antiques on the Common ~ once again, I ended up with groups of items that kind of work together ~ I rarely plan to take certain themes, I just end up noticing them when I get my photos downloaded. Yesterday's post ended up leaning a little towards the feminine ~ with a focus on paper goods, sewing items, and bead work. Today's post tilts towards the masculine ~ machinery, toys and typography. I do try to get a variety of items that I find interesting or inspiring in some way ~ after all, I don't want to end up like the guys on American Pickers who only seem interested in oil cans, decrepit bicycles and not very appealing rusty signs!
