Antique Shopping in Greenville

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was both fun and productive {both things that always make for a good weekend, right?}.

Saturday I actually got out with one of my new friends here in Greenville and did a little exploring of the city and perused some local antique shops. Thought I would show you some of the fun finds I found while out and about.

One of our first stops was Antiques on Augusta. Even before I moved to Greenville, I had heard about this place. Seems to have a very good reputation in town. And they definitely lived up to that reputation.

I loved this beaded turquoise chandelier in one of the booths.

Sunburst mirrors have been all the rage for a while. But, I’ve yet to see one made out of pencils. This would be such a cute gift for a teacher don’t you think?

We all know I’m obsessed with grain sack and I loved this little grain sack ottoman. Served as some possible inspiration for a grain sack I have waiting to be used.

I also loved this funky antique brush display. For the avid DIY’er this would be a cute accessory for someone’s office or workshop.

And this branch chandelier in one of the spaces I thought was gorgeous! I can just envision it over a long farmhouse style table in a dining room. Maybe my future dream dining room?

Antiques on Augusta not only had great pieces but some of the booths had amazing backdrops. I loved this unique fabric backdrop display.

Our second stop was Consign and Design on Augusta. They had a smaller selection, but the prices were a little bit less than Antiques on Augusta. Loved this industrial wood coffee table. Would love to one day have something like this in my home.

Lately I’ve been gravitating towards metal stools. They had a few really unique metal stools that I liked.

Our third stop was a place called Palmetto Home and Garden. The store is broken up into booths/spaces that are rented by different people (similar to some antique stores). But they have a large variety of different items. Some booths have jewelry, some have unique gifts, and then there are booths that have custom furniture or decor pieces. There is also a booth that sells Annie Sloan chalk paint as well as Miss Mustard’s new line of milk paint.

I loved this cut out metal sign in one of the booths.

And I just loved how colorful and fun this booth was overall. Loved the hanging pom poms as well as the colorful pieces they were selling.

And lastly I loved this unique furniture piece. Loved all the colorful drawers and pulls. Would never have thought to do something like this myself.

I didn’t end up buying anything. Didn’t really need to buy anything for my new place, just wanted to do some fun window shopping. Looking forward to my next antique shopping excursion.

And on another note, today is actually an exciting day for me. It’s the first day at my new job here in Greenville. I am working at a local interior design/home furnishings company helping them launch their ecommerce site and help with some of the marketing. I am so excited to not only use my marketing background in a new industry, but also excited to learn more about the design industry and hopefully learn lots from some of the designers. Here’s to a new adventure! Wish me luck!
