We are constantly getting asked where we find our unique pieces for the shop, what’s our favorite pickin’ place?
We just got back from a buying trip to the South
to one of our all time favorite places to “pick”.
It’s located on the Alabama Gulf Coast in Mobile, Alabama. A wonderful
place to visit and a chance to not only find some great vintage pieces, but also to eat some amazing seafood!
The first weekend of every month, the folks at Olde Mobile Antiques Gallery (www.oldemobile.com) hosts
one of the premier estate sales in the Southeast,
if not in the entire country!
The sale takes place in a 25,000 sq. ft. warehouse the first
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of each month.
You can literally find everything and anything!
From antique linens, books, dishes, ephemera, furniture, and artwork
to crystal, jewelry, french collectibles, garden decor,
and everything in between!
They offer the best selection of antique and vintage items from estates
that they bring in from all over the US!
And they always…….
have approximately 30,000 items priced $25.00 and under!
Olde Mobile Antiques Gallery offers a vast and varied
selection and is a pickers dream
with everything priced to sell on Friday, 30% off on Saturday, and 60% off on
Sunday (excluding furniture)!
It’s one of the few places that I will stand in line for two hours to get in!
If you are going on the first day, get there early, it’s not uncommon
for there to be a line at the door well before the opening hour of 8:00 a.m.!
Yes……I’m usually one of them! It’s that good!
It is well worth the trip to attend this amazing once a month event.
We have never been disappointed in the selection…….
come home with a car load!
We found some amazing pieces for the shop this time as well as a special item
that I bought for myself…..more on that later!
We are showing random photos of the sale today just to
give you a “taste”……
Next time, we’ll show you some of the things we
brought home with us!
