One of my favorite things to do is to antique. When I was growing up, my grandparents collected antiques and were always displaying their new finds around the house or the yard. When I was in middle school, I asked my grandmother if I could one day have a crocheted bedspread she kept in my mom’s old bedroom. She used to tell people at the local restaurant that she couldn’t believe I’d want such things being as young as I was.
When DG and I started dating, we started making weekly trips to antique. We don’t do it as religiously as we used to, but it’s something we still enjoy doing together. When I stumbled on Antiques Emporium in Cameron Village, I was over the moon! I usually think of Cameron Village as the place to shop for fashion or to grab a bite to eat with friends, but never to antique. My opinion instantly changed when I walked upstairs to Antiques Emporium. At the top of the stairs, to the right, is an eclectic mix of furniture, jewelry, but also tea cups, glassware, and dishes. I love looking at China patterns and have a mix matched selection of glasses in our house, so this really peaked my interest. I love hobnail glass, milk glass, and anything with gold detailing.
To the left of the stairs, there is a gorgeous selection of jewels, furs, chandeliers, furniture, dishes, artworkand other unique finds. Antiques Emporium has a beautiful selection of vintage costume jewelry, the biggest in the Southeast! Also, there are some gorgeous engagement and wedding band choices. The staging of the products is swoonworthy.
I mean, how gorgeous are those dishes?
