My name is Serena and this is my store Second Thoughts. Approximately 12 years ago, I began collecting Coca-Cola items to decorate my dining room and kitchen. This involved poking around in some antique stores, which over time I learned to appreciate for more than just Coca-Cola. There were certain items such as figurines, pictures or books that just pulled me into the past. It was always in the back of my mind to add some of these little bits of history to my home over time, and someday have a store of my own. Well over the last couple of years, due to an unexpected break in employment, I was able to start earlier than planned! I searched (and still do) a variety of sources to try to find vintage items, unique items and of course inexpensive items. It should not be extraordinarily expensive to want a beautiful item, a small piece of history for yourself.
Even though I have studied the price guides, researched the internet and talked to a variety of dealers, I do not consider myself an antiques expert (except maybe Coca-Cola!). However, if you have a question, need assistance finding a specific item or need some advice, please do not hesitate to contact me. I love browsing, rummaging or picking through the past.
I hope you enjoy looking through my store and hopefully something will catch your eye and “pull you in!”
