Second Chance, on the Ingrimstraße, is one of my favorite shops in Heidelberg.

I always find interesting bits and bobs…

Baubles and trinkets…

Doo-dads and bric-a-brac.

A lot of people may not like the idea of buying used or old things…

But I say…

Some things get better with time.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

And, they certainly don’t make them like they used too.

Choose whichever idiom you like…

Either way, I find it a lot more gratifying to purchase something that can be re-purposed for another use…

Something with a history and a soul…

That wasn’t made in a factory in China.

So, in honor of second chances everywhere, I decided to photograph all of these wonderful treasures and share them with you!

By the way, this is just a glimpse.  As usual, there are more to come.

Enjoy!
