Where The Heck Have We Been?

The Dresser !

The Store!

As we ( Mom and I ) have been spending our weekends shopping for merchandise to sell at the antique booth ( Harpeth Antique Mall ) , eBay and Etsy..we’ve found ourselves gravitating towards the white cream and roses , shabby looking merchandise. It sells well, and so much fun to find!

As most of you know, our downstairs flooded during the Nashville flood in May. We are finally to a point where we can start painting rooms and thinking about putting the house back together, decoratively! For the most part, Mom isn’t changing much in her downstairs colors on the walls, a few more black pieces of furniture in her living room....but the bedroom....well, that is all going to change! Shabby vintage, here we come! ( it rubbed off on us! )

After making the decision to change out that bedroom, we have been hunting for furniture and all the fun accessories . Mostly shopping at garage sales, and through Craigslist. Yes, my Mom has a fetish for both! She loves to wander  through the ads on Craiglist for any unique piece, and finding a bargain is half the fun ! We have purchased many pieces of furniture on Craigslist in the past few years. Always have had a great experience and have met some wonderful people along the way!

So far for Mom’s new room, we were able to find  a wonderful iron headboard  and a flip top desk. We’ve not been able to find a dresser.... until yesterday. Mom found one posted on Craigslist. It was a dresser that was on consignment at a store in Spring Hill , TN ( about 20 minutes outside of  Franklin). Neither one of us were familiar with the store, or knew anyone that had shopped there before! Wow, something new to explore!
So, off we left this late morning to see this dresser that had caught Mom’s eye. We arrived at the store, and found several rooms of furniture, clothing, toys and everything in between...even fabric!

Mom found the dresser tucked in one of the back rooms , she checked it over with care and with a gleam in her eye, “ripped” that ticket off of the dresser to present it to the owner at the front desk! The hunt had ended, at least for the dresser. We have more finds on the list, one of which is a dainty chandelier. Wonder where we will find that, and what kind of a bargain will be had!? Fun fun!!

For those of you that live in this area, please check out Like New Consignment Store. Located at 106 Walnut Street - Spring Hill , Tennessee! She said she has been in business for 10 years! Where the heck have we been? LOL !!!

Stay tuned, I have another fun (antique mall) shop to tell you about in Spring Hill!
