Weekend Review...

While visiting back home this weekend I was able to get together with one of my best friends on Saturday to search all over the city looking for some items for her new home. Here are some goodies we saw along the way. The first stop was new place she introduced me to call Consigning Interiors, located in Pelham, AL. With over 85 vendors, there is plenty to look through.
Our next stop was the Hoover Antique Gallery where she found the perfect shelf for her master bath {I should note that her new home is on Smith lake}.

I wouldn't have minded taking home this drafting table, scale, or large tin Coca Cola box.


The next location was called 'On a Shoestring'. I will say that I think this place has some wonderful treasures to be be found, but if you don't like small, narrow spaces, and dust, this wouldn't be your favorite spot. But I totally recommend checking it out, it has some pretty great finds {a whole room is devoted to jewelry}. We will be sure to visit again.


Our last stop {because all the others had closed} was Treasures, Antiques & Uniques. It is a cute little house in Cahaba Heights with a blend of new and antique items. I found two old ceiling tins at a great price {and of course forgot to photograph them}, and ended up leaving them at home. I can't wait for round two.

Alicia said...

The dusty place that everyone stays away from are my favorites. I'd say why but then I'd lose my foothold on the finds. :)
Seriously they hold the best bang for your buck!!!

I'm with Jennifer and Paula--- thanks for informing us about places in our town! I have been to the last place... it's not far from my office.

I LOVE those wire baskets from the Hoover Antique Gallery. Did you happen to look at the price tags? Just wondering... if I could swing purchasing a few- I might just head that way!
