Antiques in Charlotte, The Sleepy Poet

By Posted on 0

My friend Erika and I went over to the Sleepy Poet Antiques Mall on South Blvd before the Panthers game. Thanks Erika for wandering around through 55,000 square feet of antiques, you were very gracious! And thanks again to Sarah at Matters of Style for recommending this place.

Wow, what a place The Sleepy Poet is! It is an absolute must visit. Don’t be surprised if you go and you’re able to furnish an entire room or check many things off of that list of needed furniture.  In addition to a plethera of antiques and vintage furnishings, there is also a big selection of vintage clothing, fabric, jewelry and vinyl.

I snapped some photos with my Iphone so they aren’t the greatest but you’ll get the idea.

I bought DC a big girl bed! Great Jenny Lind style headboard and footboard with side rails for $150. Sold, now I need to enamel it white and Dan says we have to do it. I wanted to send it to the furniture refinisher, Oy!

I cannot wait to go back!

    Will you please take video footage as you enamel that bed? I need a good laugh.

    I would consider the video except for Dan and I will not be at our finest! I smell an argument.
