Elegant Antiquing at Midland

This past Friday was Veterans Day and our office had the day off. Thank you to all the veterans who have served this country! I do appreciate your service! My husband served in the military for about 8 years so I do understand some of the hardships that come with it.

With the day off my daughter at school and my husband working, I decided to take the day and go antiquing and finish up my Christmas shopping. One of the ladies that I volunteer with at Dress for Success told me about this wonderful antique store. But what I did not know was how big it was!

It was massive and quite extraordinary. One of the best antique stores I have seen....

Beautiful vintage rugs everywhere...

Pretty vases for great prices! This one was only $28 and hand-painted!

Large blue and white urns

Of course exquisite china!

Vintage gold door knocker. Gosh, I still want this! Look at the price!

UPDATE: I went back and purchased it! Yeah me!

These were extraordinary. Only $265 for the pair!

Love vintage screens!

 This piece was so substantial. I could see it in my home!

Art was everywhere....

Love the gilded mirror and toparies....

Chinoiserie inspired screens 

Loved this buffet....

Hitchcock Round Pedestal Table

Color rich pillows....

There were two of these....

Adore this blue and white lamp. Only $52!

I want this at the end of our bed....

Vintage chandeliers everywhere....

Details, details....

I left with this vase. It was only $15 and hand-painted. I am going to take it to the office. 

I really enjoyed this place and will be going back to visit soon. If you wish to visit their website you may see it here. It was a great day off!!!

Here is my small video of the chandeliers.

  1. There really are some great pieces in that antique shop! I love the blue and white large vases. That substantial bookcase would be perfect in a home library or office. So many beautiful chandeliers to choose from. I love the door knocker, cant wait to see a picture of it on your door. You scored with that hand painted vase, its going to look great in your office.

    1. I loved it Mrs. Shery! I guess it has been here in our city for a while. I have never paid much attention to it until now. I will be going back!!! Very soon!

  2. Dear Mrs. Shockley,

    What a wonderful place! It might be worth a drive from Cleveland for a visit. Thank you for sharing and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    Warmly, Kathleen
