My grandparent’s basement storage room was always an adventurous place when we were small (and still is). So when my cousin suggested we scavenge the storage room last Monday, I took my camera in one hand and a hand sanitizer in another and started snapping away! And since I haven’t been inside for quite a while, it was so much fun looking at all the old furniture, chinaware, my mother’s closet, old books and some friendly creatures…
One upon a time, the storage was at least 3 times bigger than what it is now and had much more interesting items but most of it was either given away or sold.
Also, my apologies in advance for the misaligned images, I couldn’t fix them on wordpress!

don't know how they found this fabulous jacket. It used to be my grandmother's. My cousin of course snatched it!
loved it, stole it! And now it's carrying beautiful flowers in our living room
old quality street chocolate box
cute, little glasses
I have no idea how old this is!
according to my mother, the clear glass thing on the left was part of a blender machine, I still don't get how that is possible
