My style is based around being thrifty, simple, but pretty. I love spending Saturday afternoons searching thrift stores, antique shops, yard sales, or flea markets to find anything I can use to re-purpose for our home. That's why I was completely ecstatic when my husband agreed to take a short road trip for our anniversary to visit several antique and thrift shops. I've started planning our route and picking which places I would like to stop at but I also want to leave time open to finding those places that aren't mapped out!
That got me thinking - why not show you the places that are local to me and that I visit often?!
First up: The Pink House!
The Pink House Antiques is located in Williamston, SC and it is literally a pink house. There are two floors, 10 rooms, a huge porch, and yard all filled with great buys. This is the type of place you could spend an hour in one weekend and come back the next and spend even more time looking around. The owner, Joan, does a great job finding items to sell. There is a wonderful mixture of low-budget/needs a little work items and high-end antiques.
Make sure to look up, down, under the tables, behind the doors, and all around so that you don't miss out on anything. I've purchased so many things from here - old windows, antique chairs, kitchen items, milk glass, books, photo props, etc.
Since the items that fill this store are older, they all have a story. Joan knows those stories and if it isn't written on the tag already, just ask her and she'll tell you all about it. It makes purchasing those items even more special knowing where they came from.
This is such a fun spot to stop by - so add it to your list!
