Last weekend I hit up two antique stores in Syracuse, NY, and I thought that I would show you some of my favorite finds. Overall, I was very good...I think that I took $40 with me, and spent less than $25. I was on the lookout for a “new” dining room tablecloth because I still had my Christmas one up. I am also interested in starting a collection of vintage Christmas ornaments, so I was keeping an eye out for those.
If you’re ever in the Syracuse area, there is one place in particular that you should definitely check out. The Syracuse Antiques Exchange is in this huge old building, and it has four (4!) floors packed with the most amazing eye candy ever. It’s also located super close to the Carousel Mall, which is quite the bonus. (This is actually where I got my blue lamp base before) Check out some of the cool stuff that I found:
Mod candle stick...which, priced at $85 was definitely outside my price range! But I love it's unique shape.
Another mod chair...if you were to recover the seat, I bet that it could fit just about anywhere in your house. And it was only $50, which is fairly reasonable. Bonus: it was also super comfortable!
Stained glass was randomly placed all over the store. Smaller, less intricate pieces could go for as little as $80, whereas the bigger, more fancy stuff could cost you several hundred dollars. Wouldn't it look pretty hanging on a wall or over a doorway though?
The store also has a fantastic selection of antique lamps and glass lamp covers. Sorry for the bad picture quality...it was dark in that area, ironically, considering all the lamps over there ;)
And lastly, these cute little guys were sitting up in the front of the store. At $295 apiece, they were pretty expensive, but hey, a girl can dream, right??
