My friendÂ Erika and I went over to the Sleepy Poet Antiques Mall on South Blvd before the Panthers game. Thanks Erika for wandering around throughÂ 55,000 square feet of antiques, you were very gracious! And thanks againÂ to SarahÂ at Matters of Style for recommending this place.
Wow, what a place The Sleepy Poet is! It is an absoluteÂ must visit. Don’t be surprised if you go and you’re able to furnish an entire room or check manyÂ things off of that list of needed furniture.Â In addition to a plethera of antiques and vintage furnishings, there is also a big selection of vintage clothing, fabric,Â jewelry and vinyl.
I snapped some photos with my Iphone so they aren’t the greatest but you’ll get the idea.
painted a beautiful dove gray, cottage/farmhouse delight
one vendor clearly knows whats up
liked the arms
Hey Betsy haven’t we seen this before? Something similar at the Rose Bowl
this ceramic horse was a fun accessory and beautiful color of celadon green
A Parsons-style walnut dining table, love it for a modern space or mixed with a more traditional chair
Note to self, buy children’s desk at West Jefferson antiques mall and paint inside blue for DC’s room
Another beautiful desk, reminded me a lot of WS Home
Alabaster horse bookends, why didn’t I buy these and the box they are sitting on?
a pair of great brass lamps with a timeless shape and great scale
an interesting accessory maybe for a bookshelf in a little girl’s room or it could hold your pens/pencils on a desk
$24 bucks a piece, there was a coordinating pair for over the twin beds MOM!
another scouted item for my Mom, this table was $40, lets paint it
already painted but the price was still right
Wishbone chairs made me think of Kristine, don’t fret I think they were overpriced
cool oversized basket overhead
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!
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
