I have memories of when I was a little girl spending weekends with my parents visiting antique stores and pawn shops discovering the most awesome little treasures and pieces of furniture for their house. I even remember the stall where my mom bought me my first antique tea set, which still sits proudly on my kitchen shelf (and woe betide anyone who dares to actually use it!)
Since moving in to our new apartment a few months ago we’ve had way more space to fill our home and decorate the crap out of it. It’s safe to say I’ve been spending my fair share of time in antique and second hand stores scouring for goodies. One of my newest discoveries is The Collected Works in Linden.
The Collected Works has a great balance between furniture and bits and bobs and super old pieces and quite a few mid century beauties. Also if you’re looking for a set of that beautiful outdoor wire furniture that have come back into style the store has a great selection of them. While I was in the store quite a few people popped in to drop new goods off so it looks like the store is constantly getting new pieces in.
Where are your favourite antique stores and markets, please share them with me so I can discover more!
