Hunting for fun pieces of furniture and accessories is one of my favorite things to do when traveling. It's nice to find some new spots to "dig," and I always seem to find more than I find at home. Of course, when our family of four plus everything we need for a week is piled into one car, it just isn't possible to buy on vacation. But I still love to look.
The beach is a great place to check out re-sale stores. People don't seem to re-decorate their beach houses as frequently as regular houses, so you can find some great vintage pieces from the 1960's and 1970's in re-sale stores at the beach, whereas re-sale stores at home are full of 1980's and 1990's junk that I swear I will never like. (Did people say that about the 1960's and 1970's?). There were about 8 re-sale stores within a couple miles of each other not too far from our beach house, so I decided to check them out.
Here are some highlights: (and now looking at the pictures again, I am kicking myself for not buying everything!)
Pair of Burled Veneer Moroccan Mirrors
Faux Bamboo Nightstand
Patterned Seagrass End Table
Brass Pelican Bookends
Faux Bamboo Breakfront that had been re-finished with some hideous "distressed shabby chic" finish
Chippendale Planter Box
Large Brass Tole Birdcage
Faux Bamboo King Size Headboard
Trio of Cast-Iron Mermaids
Oxidized Copper Headboard with fabulous lines
Yellow Campaign Nighstand
Mid Century End Table
Mid Century Dresser (exactly what I have been looking for for my tv downstairs)
and the matching nighstand.
My dad joked that I need to buy a Featherlite trailer. Now I want one.
Do you think Featherlite has any options in a David Hicks design on the exterior?
