Weekend vintage shopping


Houston has some really great vintage and antique shopping. This past weekend, I went exploring. Thought I would share a few of the best!

This was a great armoire. Sorry the angle is bad, the place was FULL. The girlfriend I was with loved it too! Think it would be perfect in her master bedroom.

Close up of the detail.

This vase was in a mid-century store. I bought this exact vase in Tulsa two years ago for a bday present for my mom. Didn't want to tell the owner I paid less than half what he was asking for it. Ha! Looooove me a deal.

Contemplated bringing these home. I found it at the Guild Shop. The BEST antique store in Houston. Omg. The best. Decided against it at the last minute... seeing this picture I am re-thinking it. Chances are if I go back to get it tomorrow, it will be gone. That place is always packed.

Wouldn't this be perfect as a little bar? Wish I had a place for it. Also from the Guild Shop.

This was my favorite find of the weekend. There was a set of these AWESOME bamboo chairs. However, I am a firm believer that if you don't have a place for something, don't get it. That may be a lie... sometimes you might just have to find a place for something you love... I don't know.

So, what do you think... should I go get them??

  2. Margaux! I think you might be right. Those silver chairs are FAB!!

  3. oh my gosh, when did you make it to the Guild Shop??? I thought they obviously did not like shoppers since they close at 2pm on Saturdays!

  4. Emily, I am really enjoying your blog! I have been meaning to stop in at the Guild Shop, now I might just make that a thing for this weekend. I really like the chairs, snag them while you can!
