Antiquing Adventures in Little Rock

Antique Hunting in Little Rock | Rosemary on the TV #arkansas #vintage

VintageMarket1A couple Saturdays ago, I got up early and decided to hit up a few of my favorite local spots for antiques, since I’m on the hunt for the perfect credenza. It wasn’t my day for the credenza, but that didn’t make the hunt any less fun! I was in luck, because the South Main Vintage Market was taking place over at Bernice Gardens, so I stopped there first. This monthly market has vendors from all over peddling vintage (20 years old) and antique (50 years old) items as well as recycled and upcycled items.

Next up, I couldn’t leave SoMa without heading across the street to my favorite Little Rock shop – Clement/Sweet Home, where the curiosities and stacked-to-the-ceiling vignettes make browsing as much fun as shopping. I love love love the gold  ship pictured below.

From there, I headed north to Roy Dudley Estate Sales, which is always a good spot to find high end antiques, silver serving pieces and imported items.

This place is piled high with tons of mid-century furniture, housewares and general oddities. There’s more to look at in this place than you’ll ever have time to sort through. They had a few mid-century dressers and even some credenzas, but none were the perfect piece for me.

So even though I came home empty handed, it didn’t even remotely feel like a wasted Saturday. Where are your favorite places to shop for antiques around Little Rock? I need as many recommendations as possible!

Fashion Friday: Anthropologie VIP Opening

What do I love more than shopping at Anthropologie?

How about shopping at Anthropologie in the city where I live, with friends, while sipping wine and eating hors d’oeuvres from YaYa’s, and at the end of the night, knowing 10% of proceeds went to Heifer International? Well, I’m a lucky, lucky girl because that is exactly what I did last night.

Anthropologie Little Rock is officially open for business, y’all! Yes, the Promenade at Chenal is sort of ridiculously far away (unless you reside in Chenal, I suppose), but it is 100% totally absolutely worth the drive. I received a very nice invitation from the corporate office (someone from their PR office stumbled across this) to attend the VIP opening party last night, so accompanied by my friend Elizabeth and with camera in tow, I went to check it out.

Anthropologie, Little Rock edish

In all her glory

This little, uh, shack housed lots of adorable kitchen supplies (and a tiny hidden bird's nest in the wall).

Loved the carpeted deer head with branch antlers.

Mmm..loved the book vignettes. These were found throughout the store.

Friends!

It should be noted that my friend Mark, pictured above, is a very talented artist and part of the visual merchandising team at Anthro.

Elizabeth saw this jacket on my recent post and had to have it (ok, maybe I pressured her a little...)!

I wanted to just roll this entire cart home with me.

Yikes! This was moments before the nice sales lady awkwardly informed us that, um, they were preparing to close, so we should probably start a dressing room. Ha!

I kept my purchases at a minimum last night for two reasons:

1. I’m going to NYC this month, y’all!

2. Notice that beautiful ring on my middle finger? Yeah, I’d purchased that earlier in the day.

However, I couldn’t leave without this lovely lady that has now been added to my closet:

The Facile Camp Shirt which I can’t wait to pair with some black riding pants and brown over the knee riding boots. These in particular. Gush.

NOW GO SHOP!
