West Palm Beach Antiquing!

I somehow managed to escape New England for this massive storm and spend the weekend in Florida with my brother who perhaps smartly, moved towards the equator.  I was excited to get to finally visit two West Palm Beach antique shops that I have been sourcing from via internet for a while- Palm Beach Regency and Circa Who.  They are both chock full of kitschy, fun vintage wares perfect for a little elbow grease fix up.  Take a peek at what a saw:

PALM BEACH REGENCY: To say I was overwhelmed is the understatement of the year.

I love this chair. LOVE. My brother hated it. With a new cushion it would be so awesome in my living room!!!  How about those fun  yellow lamps?? Love the shape.

Under that camel is the cutest little settee ever- and I loved the carvings on this little table to the right.

Faux bamboo EVERYWHERE- the pair of little headboards would be DARLING painted and put in a little girl’s room (we actually bought some from one of these stores for that very use a while ago for a client!)

An cool sofa for a sunroom!

These brass caster chairs are SO unique! Fab for an office or dining- and the dramatic backs of these other dining chairs are so fun.

I would die to gild these frames and upholster in white linen. And heeeeeeyyyyy there little poodle.

This little lacquered chair needed no repair and these brass whales were way too cool for a beach house.

I spotted these arrow sconces and hemmed and hawed about getting them.  I did not.  And then when going through my pictures and I thought “You IDIOT, those were so cool!”  Good thing when I called yesterday they were still available. SOLD!  I have no idea where they will go but they are too good to pass up.

CIRCA WHO: Fabulously curated goods.  Could have spent a small fortune.

That brass console. That’s good stuff.  And those green side tables (color of the year!)

I loved the shape of these lounge chairs and this little brass lantern (oh, and the metal chairs they sat on- which happen to be the same chairs and table I inherited from my grandmother I need to refinish for my patio)

BAM. So good. I scored a set of these a few years ago for my client (the pink/black place featured in In Style last month).

I LOVED LOVED this armoire with it’s chicken wire lined glass doors. Country meet Hollywood Regency glam.

This chandelier was sold, sadface, And I died for these glasses. Slightly tarnished and so chic.

Another amazing cabinet and some brass bookshelves quite loved.

Little elephant side tables atop another cool side table- and some vintage glasses that I think personify Miami.

I spent the afternoon like this with Oscar, my brother’s Goldendoodle by his pool.  I live in Boston why?

Back in New England Oliver was confused by what was covering Nana’s back door.  And then I came home to THIS.  That would be my driveway.  Yeah.
