If the taxidermy goose doesn't get you than the hodge podge of random china and chandeleirs will draw you into Old Times Antiques. Located at Queen and Portland, Old Times is jam packed with odds and ends. On a strip offering mostly modern designs for the young hipster crowd, this store sticks out for its weathered random offerings.
Like most estate/antique stores, some items are striking enough to call out for a wandering decor freak to purchase them and give them a home, while others remain other people's junk no matter which way you look at them.
The lovely array of tea cups and saucers caught my eye, but my personal favourite is the black globe ($95)
The 'grow with love' pillow was majorly hippie dippy yet strangely endearing and I enjoyed the scalloped wore chair it sat on as well (the hideous blankets not so much)
I have to say the array of lighting fixtures offered was thoroughly delightful of not totally bizarre. I loved the red glass chandelier, but sadly it was missing one of the funny looking bulbs.
If you look beyond the scary dead birds, you can see the mini spoon and fork placecard holders. So juvenile but charming!
To check out these wacky yet potentially wonderful treasures yourself, head over to Old Times Antiques at 607B Queen St West.
