Crown Point Antique Shops~ A Connection to the Past

I recently took some dear friends to Crown Point to browse around and go antique window shopping.  Downtown Crown Point is home to a wonderful little community with a vintage feel.  

I love antiques and walking through the many stores is like walking through time and seeing all of the wonderful little knick knacks and goodies that once held a special place in the heart of the owner. 
Since I've been a kid,  I've always loved antiques.  
They give a sense of connection to the past.   
As much as these fancies tell a story, they also leave much of the story untold.  
I can't help but wonder who it is that owned these wonderful little treasures!  

Where could these have been worn?  A dinner party?  A ball?  A night at the Opera?
I wonder where this little gal sat in a house and if she was once a special gift.
This sweet girl in pink is one of my favorites from the day.
This hatbox is faux~vintage but still adorable nonetheless.

From Europe?  Perhaps these Delft knick nacks were hand carried over from Europe?  
If you're like me,  
you can't help but wonder about the stories they could tell!  
If only they could talk!

This picture of the Crown Point County Courthouse was taken a few years back in the harsh cold of winter.  I nearly froze to death in getting this shot!
