Antiques browsing

The latest in old technology! A peek inside The Tomato Factory, an antique haven in tiny Hopewell, just a 20 minute drive away in the Greater Princeton area.

Now doesn't that look 1000 times better than its modern counterpart?! Did you leave the store with a souvenir???

It's pretty enough but I'm not nostalgic!

(I wouldn't mind meeting Colin Firth's mum... :-))

Inspiration for the Iphone?

Would I just love to browse around that place. That phone is so neat. What was the price on the tag, Lulu?

The Tomato Factory could so use this shot as a promotion image Lulu, it's gorgeous. Really enjoyed the link thanks.

Thanks so much everyone - yes, it's a true treasure-trove here!
@LOLfromPasa - I couldn't remember the price but Mr. L is pretty sure it was about $500 (about the equivalent of an iPhone if you don't sign up for a 2-yr commitment with a company!)

It looks too shiny to be as old as it should be.
or else someone has spent a career polishing the brass :)

Randy said...

I love antiques.

LONDONLULU said...

Andy - haha, it's very ancestor!
PerthDailyPhoto - aw, thank you!
Tanya - we tried mightily to resist!:)
