If you've read the New Century Collector, or have taken a look at our blog, you know that our motto is: If you find antiquing to be a religious experience, the Collector will get you to church. Well, this past Sunday, services were held outside, at the Capital City Antiques Mall, In Salt Lake City. We arrived a little bit late, but the place was still teeming with religious artifacts.
The Capital City parking lot is put to a much better use, than parking cars
This is surely what the god's intended antiquing to be. Fresh air, tables laden with goodies, and a truck loaded with sustenance, all basking in warm spring sunshine. I looked around and noticed Lyn hadn't waited, she had already made one purchase and was working the tables like a pro.
So I walked around, talked too much, and shopped too little, but still managed to nab a great peach mirror GE/Techron table clock for a paltry thirty bucks. Since the clock satisfied my craving for stuff, it seemed like a good time to check out the food truck.

Carrying a diet coke in place of the Hershey bar, we headed back to the car. I had a new clock, Lyn had a couple of new artifacts, and my wallet was still substantially intact. All in all, a great Sunday service.
On the way out, we encountered Capital City Antiques owner Monica Zoltanski, who was sporting a smile and a great hat. We told her we had a terrific time, and would be back for her June 3rd sale. Looks like We'll be regular members of her Sunday flock.
Is it proper to wear a hat at church? hummm
