Snap 13 - Museum Artifacts, Bells & Antique Mall Booths

Joining in today with Helena's meme - Snap - a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images.  The set can be based on colour or shape or subject. I'm actually sharing three sets of snaps from my long overdue outing with my friend Rita last month.

This first set of five snaps shows some of the larger artifacts found at the Canton Plaza Museum. There were quite a few nice pieces in this small one-room museum.







This second set of snaps shows just a portion of the large collection of bells that were on display at the museum. We were told that these were only a portion of a local resident's collection!





My final set of snaps shows the diversity of items available at the various booths in the local antique malls that we wandered through after our visit to the museum.





All in all, it was a fabulous day with a dear friend!

Wow! So many things to look at. It's lovely to have photos to bring home and enjoy..round here we aren't often allowed to take pictures in exhibitions (Though I guess the advantage is that I get to feed my postcard habit)
