Badge Hunting in Madison

Badge Hunting in Madison

  The Antiques Mall of Madison was crazy good. That place is jam packed. I keep finding that the smaller the town, the better the ‘tiques. Wichita had a great shop as well, just not a big. This place was a honey hole with over 100 dealers. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the...

  So Saturday night I was hanging out at Workhorse/Spindletop with John, Jen and Tyler. We were planning on going badge hunting in Houston Sunday morning. I brought up the fact that in Minneapolis you really have to get a little bit out of the city to start to find the good stuff. Jen said...

Badge Hunting: Aviation Museum

  This should make up for the lack of recent blog posts. Here are about 50 shots of vintage type. There’s everything from vintage packaging to military type to actual badges. Everything was shot down in Alabama at an aviation museum I visited with my family. If you’re ever down there on vacation, you should...
