Fairburn Antique Mall

I enjoy shopping at antique stores and I try to visit antique shops in other cities when I am travelling. When I am home though, I like to visit the Fairburn Antique Mall in Fairburn, Georgia.

I used to work in Peachtree City and would drive by this store on my way to work almost every day. I never shopped there though until my friend Anne opened a booth in the store. She took me there one day and I was hooked. It is my kind of antique store with beautiful china, lots of depression glass, colorful Pyrex, and all kinds of other odds and ends.

When shopping there you can park on West Broad Street, which is the main thoroughfare through downtown Fairburn, or, you can drive around the corner to West Campbellton Street and park behind the store and go in that way. I like the back entrance better because the parking lot is easier to get in and out of and you get to enjoy their pretty outdoor garden decor.

My youngest daughter loves this goat family.

And I always like flowers in an old wheelbarrow.

The store is located in a building that is over 100 years old. It was originally a Ford dealership and later became a hardware store. Linda Hitchcock, the owner of Fairburn Antique Mall, opened the store in its present location in 2010. She has been in the antique business for more than twenty years and originally had her store down the street prior to moving to its current location. Here is the front of the store.

Since my friend Anne introduced me to the store, I will show you her booth first. We shop estate sales together and she has a great eye for vintage pieces.

I always love a table set with blue and white china. I also like the pale blue table.

I really like the way this vintage costume jewelry is displayed. Doesn’t that toy car look cool with the necklace draped across it?

More colorful Pyrex. These pieces are so popular these days.

A great set of Hardy Boys books. I remember reading these when I was a girl. First I read all of the Trixie Belden books (my favorite), then Nancy Drew, then Hardy Boys. We made lots of trips to the public library.

Interesting collection of letters.

Ducks, canoe shelves, and taxidermy. I think this is the man section.

Wouldn’t these quail salt and pepper shakers look good on a Thanksgiving table?

Linda also has a huge section full of mid-century modern furniture. It’s not my style but I know it is popular and appeals to many people these days.

You should stop by the next time you are in or close to Fairburn. Spend some time at the antique store  and then walk down the street for some great pizza and salad at Oz’s Pizza.

It’s a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon.
