2013: Florida Spring Break Trip 2013: Antique Archaeology

One of the TV shows that we enjoy watching is “American Pickers“.  I knew that the guys had a new Antique Archaeology store  in Nashville, TN and that it would be a short 5 minute detour off of our route to get home from Spring Break – so we stopped by.  While we had a great time, and it was fun to see some things that we had seen on the show (See the pigs head above), it was not at all what we expected.

It was more like a gift shop that an antique shop.  They didn’t have that many antiques, and the ones that they did were way out of my price range.  They did have a lot of new books, t-shirts, and other souvenirs.  We had to stand in line for about 30 minutes before they would let us in.

I did purchase an old print block with an advertisement on it, and it was fun to see the guys purchase the lot on a show that we saw after we had visited the store.

We walked around behind some of the other buildings and found one of their trucks and got our picture with that which was fun – we were hoping to see the ones that the guys ride in – but it was nowhere to be found.

This was a spread that was a challenge to create.  I only had these four photographs, and did not have enough ephemera to fill two pages. It was also the end of our vacation, and I didn’t want to start a new event on the right hand side.  So instead, I chose background paper that fit the antique theme that was very busy to fill the space and represent the theme.  I then centered the four pictures on the full spread, rather than on each page, and the result turned out well.
