Scoping out the Britton Street Mall

Last week I was perusing Craigslist, as I tend to do, and found a handful of listings from the Britton Street Mall, a large antique shop not far from us. I’ve driven by it hundreds of times, probably, but hadn’t yet ventured in. I finally found the time, and thought there was some good stuff. Definitely some great values, that’s for sure, especially if you’ve got an upholsterer (is that a real word?) at your beck and call.

How ’bout a giant upholstered ottoman? It just needs fresh fabric to make it work.

This midcentury buffet was gorgeous. It was next to an equally gorgeous midcentury dining room set. I can’t remember the price on this one, but it wasn’t ridiculous.

I love love LOVE this little red desk. It was repainted from the original beige (actually, I HAD this desk when I was a kid!) and really well-done. Sometimes when things get repainted, they don’t look too hot. Not so on this one. I really wish I had somewhere to put this little beauty, because I loved it. $195.

A pretty wood dining room set. It would be lovely painted in dove grey, non?

This big mirror? $25.

WOW. A seagrass chair? Yes, please! At $290, it’s not dirt cheap, but it’s got great potential. You can’t tell from this photo, but it even had nailhead trim. Just switch out the fabric on that cushion (maybe a heavy linen).

If only Jude were smaller! This vintage child’s rocker would be perfect in any nursery. Somewhere around $35, I think.

A Drexel campaign sidetable. This was a STEAL at $45.

There was also an X-bench that needed reupholstery, and I didn’t get a photo of that.

Well, so, there you go. I’ll definitely be heading back. If you’re in the OKC area, you should check it out! OKCers, anywhere you like to go to find some great steals?
