Stop #3: The Consignment Galleries

13 Apr

Hi everyone!  Hope you’ve been enjoying the virtual antique store tour!

Tired yet??

Stop #3
The Consignment Galleries
363 Highland Ave.
Somerville, MA
www.theconsignmentgalleries.com

The Consignment Galleries was third on our list, and it definitely was the biggest store on our trip. This almost 30 year old shop has a wide variety of gently used, mostly older furniture and accessories.  I can’t lie – there were a lot of “my grandma would LOVE this” pieces  but also a few gems… so well worth the trip!


Buyer beware… you could spend hours in here!

These cute dishes would look great as ring or small jewelry holders, on a shabby chic dresser!


Ok so as tacky as it may be….I have a little thaang for cool salt and pepper shakers!

.
End of the bed “clothing collector” ottoman?  I think SO!

I loved this porcelain bowl/vase/urn???? And if I remember correctly – it was pretty cheap!

A lot of the furniture was a bit dated for my taste, but this large buffet piece had a nice contemporary feel!

Cooper: “Is this necklace too flashy?”

Your turquoise, so obv I dig ya.

It was seriously a jungle in there!!!  If you collect animal figures (of any type) this store likely has something for you!

And the purchases….

Jo was on a mission to find a tray for her contact stuff.  Antique meets modern!!!


And here it is in action!

And our clever friend Cooper turned this pin into a necklace!


And picked up these sweet earrings.

Ok people, we’re almost done!
Next and last stop…
Sunshine Lucy’s!

Stop #2… Toni and Ana’s

12 Apr

Welcome back to our little Antique shop hop!

Stop #2
Toni & Ana’s Furniture
864 Broadway
Somerville, MA 02144

Toni and Ana’s is an independently owned furniture shop, right by the big rotary in Somerville. They specialize in paint and reupholster jobs of recycled furniture, and if you’re looking for color in your home – this is the place to go!   Toni told us that the inventory is always changing, so what we saw might be totally different next week.  Every piece is absolutely unique, and they have a real knack for knobs (hello Anthropologie), which is one of my personal favs.

Yes, that’s Toni in the flesh!!!

This sign pretty much sums up what each of our significant others was {NOT} thinking that morning.

I just can’t get enough of this turquoise!  Click here to see more!

Knoberific.  Yes, that’s a word.

I think this was everyone’s favorite piece!  I’ve been seeing lot’s of these funky fabric dressers around the blogosphere lately…


Design Sponge

Maison Douce

Ikea Hackers

But as far as I know, the one at Toni & Ana’s is still around – so grab it while it’s hot!!!

And while no one in our group picked up a jazzy piece of furniture, I did snag this “little” item for our kitchen.  For $15, I couldn’t resist 🙂

and here is it’s HFoP kitchen debut!

And our journey continues….
