Rusty MAGNOLIA's

This store is SO MUCH FUN! They have over 40 vendors with antiques plopped all over the place. From the outside it may not look so appealing, but one step inside Magnolia on 310 E. Whittier Blvd in La Habra, and you will be convinced.

There is a huge "backyard" to this store with a lot of (sadly) deteriorating treasures. The above assortment pretty much sums up the back area.

How great is this table?! Made with large chunks of wood and branches, the bottom is a little awkward, but the painting on top makes up for it.

Here is a close up of the hand-painted flowers.

I can't even stand how much I love this painting and frame. If only I had $200 for it...

I've never seen anything quite like this little guy.

What a cool store! It reminds me of this little place we found in Cairo that sold all kinds of funky art. I just wanted to stay there all day and inspect everything. This is inspiring!
