If you have a love for antiques and happen to be in Atlanta one of my favorite places to visit is Atlanta’s 14th Street Antique Market. It’s 50,000+ square feet of exquisite fine antiques, unique period pieces and one-of-a-kind items. For people who love antiques the 14th Street Antique Market is a well curated collection of the beautiful including furniture, lighting, jewelry, and collectibles.
The 14th Street Antique Market is open 7 days a week.
You don’t have to decorate in a traditional style to incorporate antiques into your decor. An antique or vintage piece such as a mirror, chest, rug or table can compliment almost any decor style. A major attraction to antique shopping is hunting for that perfect treasure that will add personality and interest to a room. Other reasons people collect antiques are:
- Decorate in a favorite style of antiques.
- Collect antiques as a hobby.
- Sentimental value.
- Love to hunt and acquire to build a collection.
- Restore and resale.
- It’s fun.
Also, I enjoy learning the story behind treasures I find when antique shopping. Here are some finds from my visit to the 14th Street Antique Market.
The desk has a tan leather inset and gold leaf patterned decorative finishing – I can see me sitting at that desk!
An eclectic mix of vintage and new items can be found there
So, if you find yourself in downtown Atlanta especially on a Sunday afternoon you just may run into me at the 14th Street Antique Market. It’s a great way to spend a lazy Sunday. But here’s a warning I can be a take no prisoners shopper when I have my eye on a piece. See you there!
