Cooper City Antique Mall

*Thank you so much for your kind comments on the playroom post.  I wanted to add a note about the wall art from Stick Art.  They have a wide selections of stickers but they also accept custom orders.  Ruth had the ones she used specially made.*


On Saturday, one of the local antique stores I frequent, Cooper City Antique Mall, had a storewide sale.  They also had a 250 sq. ft. room set up to show how the pieces in the store can be incorporated in a house.  It was also their intention to keep things "green" as much as possible.  Incorporating antiques, repurposed and up-cycle materials keeping them from filling up our landfills.  Kevin Alden Reed, one of the resident designers, included at least one item from every single vendor in the Mall.    

Not only did I love the doors, but also the hardware.  Sadly for me, they were already sold.

This gorgeous stove and matching oven are made to look antique but with modern-day conveniences.

The sink and flooring were both from Habitat for Humanity's ReStore.  The mosaic counter top was handmade by one of the Mall's artists, Sharon Hershkowitz.



My absolute favorite piece is the island.  Although I tried, the pictures really don't do it much justice.

I'd like to send a shout out to one of the store's owners, Claudia, for taking the time to chat with me and allowing me to snap away.  She was so fun and a delight to be around.  Thank you again, Claudia.  We'll be getting together real soon.

Holy Schmanoly! I need to come to Florida! I would have snagged all that enamelware that I seen, along with that blue pyrex dish in the hutch! The green island is to die for, as is the stove and oven! Last but never least, the high chair! I want it! SO adorable! And of course the chandeliers and those gold frames! I would fix those up in a heartbeat!

Okay, I have to stop swooning and get to work! Have a great day!
