My husband is the type to sign up for a 4+ mile grueling obstacle course race. I am the type of person to tag along because there is good "junking" to be done on the way. My husband got a muddy medal and some scrapes and bruises. And while I'm not one to knock healthy living, I sort of feel like he got the short end of the stick on this trip.
Monroe, Georgia home of Cherry Hill Antique Mall - a 55,000 sq foot building of pure awesomeness. It's located in a 120 year old restored cotton mill and has over 400 vendor spaces. And I wanted one of everything!
I'm a sucker for lighting. The quirkier, the better. I also love, love, love industrial lighting. The above is a montage of several of my favorites.
I love this old fan turned lamp. The chippy piece it's sitting on ain't bad either!
Plywood circles, corrugated cardboard and some dowel rods look like a million bucks when paired with a light bulb. But this one can be had for just $110.00.
It's industrial. It's jute. What more could you ask for?
Seriously. I could've just moved in! Give me a cup of tea and it's almost as good as a trip to an English Country garden, no?
Entrance to the auction house. How fun is this?!
Even the bathrooms were awesome! Have I told you I love a good industrial look?
Old bread cart. I also love anything with casters. And wood.
I am going to be redoing my studio/office and I really wanted these card catalogs for storage. But there's so much left to do in there before shopping for storage. Loved these though.
There's a turquoise cart selling on IKEA for $49.99 that I've been dying to get. It's about half the size of this vintage one. I was determined to bring this one home until my husband convinced me we couldn't a) fit it into the car and were weren't b) going to strap it to the top of our car for the 3 1/2 hr ride home. Hrmph
You may not see it, but this door is amazing to me.
See that old egg basket on the left of the table there? Got it. See that ladder that goes all the way to the ceiling? Wanted it.
Not exactly sure what this is, technically. But I believe it's meant to be a cooler. That's how I would've used it anyway.
I'm thinking you guys don't even need any words from on this one.
Rice bin. I seriously wanted just about everything in this store!
This giant rolling cart was calling my name. Sure it was huge. Sure it was $500 but I was extremely tempted to load up all the stuff my husband said wouldn't fit on or in our car and push this bad boy all the way home!
Great, great, great old suitcases. Love the old window, too.
While this is meant to be a display of burlap and flower magnets, I'm diggin the whole set-up.
I love every little thing that I got and I can't wait to show what I do with it all. We managed to get it all in the car and still have room for all of us. Next time though, I'm going back with a trailer!
P.S. There were more great places right across the street from this one but I didn't get to stop there this trip. Who's game for another trip in the near future?
