Have you been to Cherokee Antique Row? While shopping in St Louis this past weekend, my MIL and I stumbled upon 6 blocks of shop after shop of antique shops, diners, cafes and vintage clothing stores. A second hand lovers (such as myself) dream street.
We parked the car and just walked (really fast, it was snowing and freezing cold!) to each store that held the promise of my next "find".
This was probably the best antique shop I've been in of late. Some really amazing pieces of furniture....consoles, buffets, tables, chairs, china hutches...whoever the buyer is has a great eye and style. While most of it was not in my taste, I can still see the value of everything selected for the shop and I was really left wondering where was it all found! It makes it easy though to have it all in one location and if you were searching for a particular piece, I bet you would find it here. I fell in love with a blown glass chandy and a pair of chairs, neither of which came home with me, maybe next time. ;)
I was also in heaven when we entered A Light Above, a spectacular collection of stunning chandeliers from every era imaginable. Any style, finish and size could be found here, oh and sconces and mirrors too, all vintage, all divine.
China Find, a source for dishaholics everywhere. Sets of dinnerware galore from the 1940's through today...Lenox, Noritake, you name it, they had it. I loved this vintage green glass.
The Purple Cow, yes you read it right, that's the name of this next store, I loved this mid-century beauty:I love this iconic chair too, I was totally channeling my inner Kelly Wearstler!
