If you follow me on Instagram,( @designThoughtsInteriors) you have seen my feed explode with what I think, are amazing finds!!
In the last few months, I have explored most of the Nashville Antiques scene, and continue to be blown away by the treasures just WAITING to be discovered!! Don’t be fooled though, Nashville has a list of unwritten rules when it comes to designers and amazing finds. For instance, if you happen upon an awesome set of chairs that just may be Eames inspired, and you are trying to decide if they are real, or not real, because the price is just in the middle and its hard to tell, you better dive in if you like the color the style and the overall “feel” or those little babies will be swiped RIGHT out from under you by a perky little girl with a big smile and a bright yellow sweater ( Damn it!). Also, if you are in the “Know” or part of the secret antiquing designers/store owners of Nashville, you may be led to super special, not talked about places like Madison Flea ( ooops..I guess your in). Its so much fun, and I am falling in absolute love with scouring this town for the next great piece!! Here are a few things I have picked up!
I mean, SERIOUSLY!! this gem of a mid century desk, was being stalked by whom I later found out, was the set designer for the show Nashville, fortunately for me, I know the rules!! I turned the corner, saw this desk and stole the tag, paying zero attention to the fact that its a lefty!! I love it so much. Guess how much….$50 !!!!!!!!!!! say WHAT!? MINE allllll MINE!!! ( Nashville Antiques are the new black)
About a month ago, My friend Lana and I ( you may know her from Makingahouseahome and RichHippies ) went on the hunt for great treasures, I found this AWESOME little flowered tray, and finally put it to use on my dresser top this past week.
If you didnt know, Nashville has a flea market each weekend that rates number Seven in the entire United States! Well, this last weekend we decided to brave the 100 degree heat, and see what we could find. We left with a huge bag of Legos for Liam the “Out of this world” fabric below, and these ADORABLE wooden pins for me!! I love them so much! they stand approx. 3″ tall. Ps. The fabric..$7 for 3 yards!! Stay tuned in the future to see me make killer window treatments out of it, for my office that now houses my new desk!!
SO if you are in the area visiting, or live here, holla!!! I would LOVE to take you around to what I think, are the best spots in Nashville for Antiques!
Enjoy your week!!
