unexpected finds at The Old Barn Antiques

We hadn't even planned on giving the Ol Barn a visit. In fact, we had made the drive down to San Juan Capistrano because my mom had intended to show me this fabulous home decor warehouse she had recently discovered. However, when heavy traffic became our enemy, we ended up arriving only to discover doors closed to business. Wondering what else was in the area, we quickly did some research & found The Old Barn was just 3 minutes up the road.

The Ol Barn sure rang true to its name. We walked in through these big barn doors & began our browsing beneath its beams. The first section of the Barn definitely played a homage to the Wild West with a sort of "Cowboys & Indians" theme. Vendors in this section hyped up their Native American relics & threw out a few authentic cowboy boots here & there..

But once we passed through the archway, onto another section, we began to spot a few items more geared toward our aesthetic..

As the Barn kept extending back further & further through each new archway, we discovered that there were more sections to this place than I had originally imagined. {I guess that's why they call it an Antique Mall!} Throughout each section, I was determined to keep my eyes searching..

Between all the nooks & cranny's & beyond mass amounts of doilies & tiny trinkets,
I was able to spot these beauties!
Stacked up behind an armoire were these salvaged, vintage ceiling tins. I have always loved the idea of hanging a few of these on a wall to add texture. But every time I'd begin my search for them and ask around for them, I'd get the response that they were extremely hard to come by.. Who knew the Ol Barn would have such a handful!

And then add an industrial, pearl gray cart into the mix {i adore the exposed wood on top} and I left the Old Barn that Saturday afternoon with two very unexpected treasures.

I can't wait to polish these finds on up and load them in the car to head back to San Francisco!
