Local Favorite: The Brass Armadillo

Perfect for treasure hunting and wiling away an afternoon– I’ve gotten lost for hours. Open 9-9 everyday. Prices vary as each booth is operated by different vendors.  I was able to completely furnish my first apartment between this antique mall, a couple of garage sales, and a few stops at the goodwill. Fabulous finds if you’re willing to dig a bit.

Modern Eclecticism

Mixing antiques with modern pieces can be a challenge… how to avoid the hodgepodge?

Older pieces, such as this persian rug and victorian trunk below, can easily be interwoven into a contemporary room by playing with size and scale. In this case, the lamp and trunk echo similar elements, merely varied in proportion.
