This week I stepped back in time and went to Burnaby Heritage Village….in Burnaby, BC. I have decided yet again, that I love the 1920’s!! The houses are just my style….with running water and electricity of course!! LOL!! If you have never been to the village before, I would highly recommend you go!! They have it set up like a small town, and you go into homes, stores, a school house, movie theatre, real estate office, barber shop, ice cream parlor, post office, etc. They also have a trolly to walk through and a carousal for the kids (and adults) to ride!!
Here are some pictures that I took along the way….
Isn’t this the cutest house?? It was originally built on this site in the 1920’s and was deemed quite fancy as it had electricity and indoor plumbing.
I love all the built in cabinets in the dining room and living room! This was considered a formal dining room. The men had to wear a suit and tie, dresses for the woman and the children had to wear their best clothes to eat dinner in this room.
What a bright and cheery bathroom!!
The wood table, chair and counter look so nice in this white kitchen.
I love this butter churn too!!
Here is the General Store….there are some wonderful items in here!!
All the tins in different shapes and sizes look so cool lined up together!
I am sure a young child had that rocking horse on their wish list!!
Look at all those wooden cheese boxes!!!
What would your favorite item be?? So many great things on these shelves!!
Crocks, crocks and more crocks!!
Here is the Newspaper print shop.
What a beautiful desk!
This classroom would have children from Kindergarten to Grade 7!
Don’t forget to stop into The Ice Cream Parlor for a cool treat!!
Walking through all the shops and homes in Burnaby Village has gotten me so excited for The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market!!! I can not wait to see what wonderful treasures all the vendors are bringing with them!! I know for sure that I will be doing some shopping myself, to add to my favorite collections at home. Do you have a collection of something at home? What will you be shopping for on September 28th??
