Vintage Furniture Finds in Charlotte
You just bought your dream home, and it’s time to decorate. Avoid the big box stores, and find the unique piece of furniture that defines the room. The one item that, once it enters your family, instantly becomes an treasured heirloom. Fortunately, in Charlotte, we have plenty of options when it comes to quirky thrift stores and consignment shops. Perhaps none, though, as expansive and diverse as Sleepy Poet Antique Mall, located on South Boulevard (just a stones-throw from the new Southend distillery, Great Wagon Road if you need to stock up your new vintage bar cart!)
So skip the meatballs. Spend a day perusing the aisles, and take in each booth’s vignette of a story. You’ll be sure to fall in love with something along the way. Oh, and make sure you dig into their vinyl album collection too!
Savvy Pro-Tip: Take a trip on a Friday and check out the highly fashionable Kitch-y-Cool Vintage (attached to Sleepy Poet). They bring out new items on Fridays!
