Recently, we did a little antique shopping in Pensacola, Florida and I thought you might enjoy following along on a virtual visit!
One of my favorite places to shop on the Gulf Coast is in Pensacola. It’s a great vintage and antique market called Oooodles Antiques! Pensacola is only about an hour drive from where we live, so it’s easy to visit often, and I believe that it’s one of the best places for antique shopping in that area.
I saw so many beautiful things including this gorgeous bust and cherub wall sconces. Of course, the antique crucifix drew my attention as well.
I could have easily filled my car to the brim! I’ve been buying and selling vintage and antique pieces in my online shop for almost 14 years, and I have a few places locally that are my favorites to visit. Oooodles Antiques is always on my list, and I try to visit on a regular basis to see what’s new.
I love Italian Florentine and I was so excited when I saw this set of Florentine nesting tables. I hurried to them, but was disappointed that they were the newer plastic version instead of the highly sought after wood, so unfortunately they didn’t come home with me.
Oooodles Antiques boasts over 12,000 sq. ft. of treasure hunting. You never know what you’re going to find there. They have some wonderful vendors that carry quality antiques, as well as jewelry, sterling, china, crystal, linens, and artwork.
There’s also an abundance of books, clocks, vintage clothing, furniture, and so much more!
I’m not really into mid century modern, however I know many people are. There’s several vendors at Oooodles that carry some amazing pieces of mid century modern.
I love this “big girl” dress form! Many years ago, I actually had one in this size, and ultimately ended up selling it. Part of me wishes that I still had it, even though I have no idea what I would do with it! However, it would make a great conversation piece!
Oooodles Antiques also has an outdoor garden area that offers outdoor furniture and accessories. In the garden area I saw this amazing bust that was made of solid cast iron. It had such a great look to it and was perfectly (or imperfectly) weathered.
I would definitely display this piece inside on a chest, buffet, or foyer table. What an amazing, one of a kind, look it would create!
It’s easy to find the perfect gift or an accent for your home at Oooodles! They also offer contemporary treasures and their vendors bring in new things quite often so their inventory is always changing.
I don’t know about you, but I adore finding these miniature Eiffel Towers. Most often these diminutive La Tour Eiffel were purchased as souvenirs in Paris. They are so much fun to collect in different sizes and display in a grouping!
Are you a lover of antique trophy cups? This silver-plate trophy was awarded to the winner in a beauty contest in 1935!
It would make the perfect vessel for a small flower arrangement, and would probably spark an interesting conversation!
If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know that I love vintage religious pieces, so this vendor always gets my attention.
Beautiful antique majolica, and grain sacks…….
Of course, this pair of cherubs grabbed my attention as soon as I walked in the door. Sadly, they were out of my budget.
I hope you enjoyed doing a little virtual antique shopping with me! And I know you’ve seen something that has caught your eye! If you’re close enough to visit Oooodles Antiques in Pensacola, FL, you will fall in love with their wide selection of vintage and antiques!
