First Antique Store Visit of 2017

1.15.2017

After staying cooped up during the frigid temps last weekend, wow what a difference a week makes with spring like temps this weekend, I ventured out to the antique mall just to get out. I took lots of pictures with my phone to share with y'all.




This was a large piece and someone removed the upholstery, but left thousands of nails for someone else to have fun removing. Wasn't that nice of them?

The desk sitting in the frame of that piece was quite nice.

Cute pennant pillows.





Plenty of ironstone and blue and white pieces to be found.





There was a pair of these chairs for sale that truly looked like they were ready for the trash pile and they weren't cheap either. I was surprised at the price. 

Really, for two chair frames that are broken and rotting? 



Clocks, anyone?

Look at this very ornate beauty.





This is a fully restored rocking horse toy. I want an old rocking horse toy, but not this style or this big. 

How about an old bed, cot, whatever it is covered in layers of paint and a rotten piece of plywood. You just never know what you will find next.

Beautiful piece.

This was a large round table with fancy carved lions with wings base.



I almost bought this nice cutlery tray.

There is a closet full of silver pieces.

Headed to Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta today since we have spring weather.

Happy hunting!

  4. After spending the last two weeks in the house because of bad weather and a awful cold it was so nice to go shopping with you. And I didn't spend any money. Can't wait to see what you took home.

  6. Lot's to look at there! We went to the Tobacco Barn yesterday and I picked up a French front door flower basket. Can't wait to use it on my new house, if they ever start it!

  7. Kim, was this at Queen of Hearts? Love that place. I have you to thank for spotting that awesome Fox Hill crate last year. So many comment on it when in our home. And, they love the story behind the name (the house I lived in when we got engaged).

  11. Instead of WTS that sign should have been WTH!!! LOL. LOVE that round table with the lion legs! Gorgeous. Did you get anything?

  12. seeing the condition of that pair of chairs and the price reminds me of something my husband says: "An @$$ for every seat!" If someone sees them as beautiful they'll be willing to pay that and that reminds me of something my mother used to say: "They're laughing all the way to the bank!" on that sale. I say to each his own!

  14. I spied some things that I liked such as those green lamps in the 2nd photo! I have a very unique rocking horse that I've had since the 80s that I have been thinking of selling. I have never seen another one like it and can't find one online. I'll send you a pic if you're interested.

  15. I enjoyed strolling through the antique stores with you. Yes, you never know what you will find that will be perfect in your home. I do love the thrill of the hunt! Most of my favorite things have come from antique hunts or yard sales. Thanks for sharing!

  19. I live in metro Atlanta too and am trying to determine if the store was Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta or Buford or a totally different store. I would love to know what store it was. louiseadkins1@gmail.com

  21. I love to visit antique stores, but that's something I usually do to get inspiration because their prices are always out of my reach. They have great furniture pieces!
