Relics


Relics is a new antique mall in Springfield, which has been a while in the making.
Opening in mid July it has gotten off to a great start.
 As you will see from the following photos,
they are an antique mall in every sense of the word.
They have a lot of variety and diversity of merchandise
 from primitives, retro, to vintage shabby, and everything in between.
There's a lot to see.








They have some policies about what they allow in
so I think that will keep the quality up
and the 80's and 90's garage sale out.




Nothing wrong with that,
I just don't want to see it in an antique mall.
ya know what I mean?
I'm not interested in a used toaster or toilet seat cover.
thanks but no thanks.








This set is really incredible!
a metal dresser and chest.
too cool!







Like I said they have a great mix,
with some "industrial" thrown in.




If I had a spot for this I would have brought it home.
The paint is wonderful!






Wonderful gray armoire.








These spaces are the design work of Robin Gilmore.
She's a super talented gal
and has a fabulous turn of the century mansion here in Springfield,
which she has turned into an event center,
called Ms. Gilmore's.


I just go in here and soak up all the inspiration.



































These next few photos are of two spaces of Teresa of Bluebird Vintage,
who not only has mall spaces around the area,
but she hosts a wonderful barn sale each spring on her property.
I've been trying to twist her arm to have a fall show.
















I always find great things in her booth.
AND she has wonderful prices!
Thanks, Teresa!


Relics has plans to open a tea room within the mall next year.
I hope they do.
This is a really promising place,
I hope they do well.

Off to water the sad little flowers.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
love,
Debra

That all looks so wonderful. I wish I could have hopped around town shopping with you, I'm sure that would have cured the funk I've been in of late.

I'm still here...

Oh, wow! So many wonderful things to look at! I would have a hard time leaving, let alone leaving without a car fun of treasures! I especially enjoyed all of the wire goodies, and that gorgeous large mirrored armoire!

I would sure like to come to Springfield!! Several years ago when I'd go up to see my grandma in Kansas every 6 months or so, I'd take off in a different direction and antique my way home. I found Missouri to be a great place to antique! Those were the days!!

Your pictures give me more ideas for displaying in my booth. We have a new antique mall within a mile of the house. It is already filled to capacity with a waiting list to get in. What I love about it is that it is wheelchair friendly. My husband can go and sit in his chair while I work on my booth. It is a learning experience. I do hand embroidery work so I have tea towels, pillowcases, lap quilts as some of the things. My friend has added some furniture to sell and use for display. They opened the 2nd week of August. Have a great day.

What a great antique mall. I agree with you on the bedside commodes and walkers at the antique mall. What great finds!!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Oh Debra,
I love it all! Thanks for this field trip, I can see why you go for the inspiration. Happy weekend!

Hayley said...

Thanks for the peek inside...I haven't been in there yet and thought it might be too fancy for me with the title "antique mall." But I see lots of lovely things, so I will have to check it out. Maybe tomorrow! Have a good weekend. I'm feeling the tiniest little nips of that fall weather you love so much...

David said...

Thanks for the tour! I like those cool old signs!

nancarts said...

Hi Debra, thanks for sharing this amazing mall. I could really have a great time here. I would need a large truck to bring it all home! and then I would have to find some place to put it all! Love the pics, you did a great job.
Have a great weekend.

Smiles and Blessings,
Nancy

What an Amazing Place ~ I so wish I lived closer, I am in Love with that Long Drafting Table (at least that's what it looks like).... Heart Be Still!

Olive Cooper said...
