{Browser Window Shopping}: Summer Avenue Antique Mall.

I'm back for another installment of browser window shopping! Last weekend I went to my favorite antique store within reach, Summer Avenue Antique Warehouse (I love Sheffields but it is TOO FAR out there).  The last time I did a post about them I found all sorts of goodies. I love Antique Warehouse because it is big enough to find lots of treasures but small enough to be manageable for a quick antique fix without spending all morning.

So what did I find this time to lust after?

This side table/coffee table would be so fun with bright legs -

This library cart actually went home with me! I've been needing another bookshelf for the books I brought over from my room in the parental units' house. This one is two sided and on casters. So cool.

I spied these neat barstools, perfect for someone with a retro kitchen. How fun are they?!

Then next to them was this great chest of drawers that had been painted and refinished. It was very nice looking and a reasonable price.

Lurking under all those dishes is a really fun laminate retro table. Gotta love turquoise.

And this red cabinet? Ah - I'm in love. Narrow enough to fit in most spaces, glass front doors? LOVE.

Spied these Mae Sibley pieces for $75 a piece hanging on a wall. Very beautiful.

Down the way a little bit I saw these neat winter scenes for $25 a piece. There was a third one unframed for $15 as well.

These tupperware measuring cups found a home with me - they remind me of the yellow ones my mom has and still uses. You can never have too many measuring cups. We have some stainless OXO ones but seems the one you need is always dirty!

This same booth had some fun Pyrex pieces. I went home with two bowls, a casserole, and a refrigerator dish (on the 2nd shelf):

Also in that booth (where the winter paintings and Pyrex were), there was a stack of unframed art. This is where the 3rd winter painting was. This ballerina print would look so classy framed in a little girl's room!

All in all, it was a good day for the Summer Avenue Antique Warehouse. Such a quirky, fun little spot on Summer amidst some sketchness!

Until next time, there are treasures untold.

In antiques and treasure hunting,

SO does my mom! I need a set. I hate the ones I have!

OH I want that table! Do you remember how much it was?
I may have to go visit Summer Ave again this weekend!
