My Favorite Finds

I read an interesting post about Antiqueshopping and so I wanted to share a post reflecting my favorite ways to shop for home decor.  I like home interiors that reflect lifestyles and life experiences which leads me to loving the search for accents to enhance interiors that highlight home owners personal interests.  I also do not tend to favor rooms filled with everything “brand spanking new!’

That being said you are more likely to find me in out of the way vintage and antique stores where I will search out the perfect accent to add a bit of interest or reflect a personal favorite.

An exterior like this will pull me in every time…

Unfortunately for me this alluring spot did not open its doors until later in the day so I satisfied myself with perusing the outdoor offerings scattered about the porch and garden.

metal carts were abundant and I could easily find many spots for tucking one of these in around the garden …

I’m a sucker for a vintage watering can…

This little shop in Bar Harbor, Maine, is the perfect place to find a special piece and I will definitely be back…

I also loved a southern inspired shop, South, that I discovered on a trip to Beaufort, South Carolina, earlier this summer…

Everything in the shop is sourced from southern vendors…

I loved the pagoda lantern but Mr. Doctor was shopping with me and so the Veuve Clicquot tray was what found its way into our bag…

Ah, the bamboo chairs would definitely be welcome here OPP…

Love the antique mall in downtown Nashville and it is a to-go to spot each time I visit daughter!  I’ve got a fireplace mantel on the brain and liked the lines of this one…

image

Industrial table for an out door space is also on the brain and I found plenty of inspiration here…

This little banquette caught my eye…

And so the answer to the question “what is your go-to place for finding antiques” is a multifaceted one for me!  I do love a flea market, am lured in to antique shops and also love looking around home decor shops.  Oh, and doing all of these while traveling is twice the fun!

you just never know what you will find…
