Photo Essay: Goodnight Moon

We wrap up our photographic safari to The Purple Moon with four last shots that show some of the cool glassware and other sundry knick-knacks available at the only retro lifestyle store in West Virginia.

Upon entering the store, you’re greeted by a ceramic sampler of cruncy retro coolness with vases, creamers, butter dishes and more examples of post-war crafts.

This cozy little corner is packed with so much great stuff that I couldn’t single out any of it. Click to enlarge and explore.

A working turntable–gotta love it! I think this item is already spoken for.

Finally, we bid farewell to The Purple Moon with one of my favorite photos from my visit–a vintage Rat-pack-era bar set, complete with shot glasses, tumblers, and a Martini shaker.

Since The Purple Moon has so much cool-looking stuff, maybe I’ll take the camera back up there in a few months and see what other cool items they’ve harvested from the recent past.

    Cool-o daddio – Why is it I suddenly have an urge to play some jazz and sip a martini. What a great shop! Thanks for giving us a peek!
