After visiting the North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville on Saturday to find some jeans for my girls (half price clearance sale at the Levis outlet), I decided to stop by the Queen of Hearts Antique Mall in Alpharetta on my way home. Wow! I have heard other bloggers talk about how great this store is and I have to agree. They had a mix of stylish home decor along with some very nice antiques. I’d say it was probably about 65 percent new and 35 percent vintage and antiques. While I prefer those numbers to be reversed, the inventory was gorgeous. The booths were full of beautiful home decor and there were some very high quality antique furniture pieces including desks, buffets, and bookcases.
If this is the year you have decided to redo your bedroom or living room, or if you are looking for inspiration on how to use an antique piece in a new or fresh way, Queen of Hearts is a great place to start.
There was lots to see that day. This booth was loaded with farmhouse decor. I especially like the sheep on the back wall.
There were so many antique dress forms in the store that day. I like the way this one was displayed with a wreath on it.
I always like vintage tole trays.
Nice set of transferware.
And old boxes/drawers.
Such a pretty shade of green on this desk and chair set. The paint color really brings out the details on this desk.
This small buffet was a nice shade of green too.
Another dress form mixed in with some pretty pieces.
Nice natural wicker lamp shades.
Cute little desk in white.
An extensive collection of old cameras.
Closeup of a fewof the prettier ones.
Some primitive looking dolls.
Vintage doilies and embroidered pieces neatly displayed.
A pretty tole-painted canister and a charming blue lamp. I would have liked to have taken them both home.
A pretty secretary filled with some eye-catching smalls. This whole booth was just lovely with its whites, greens, and a few silver pieces.
And one of my favorite pieces I saw that day. Isn’t this an absolutely gorgeous bookcase? I would have loved to have taken it home that day. The wood had a rich patina that beautifully showed its age.
Here is a closeup of the details on the doors. Even though it has a crack going down the front, it still looks incredible. Such a solid piece.
Well that’s it for today. I will post more photos later this week (and show you my other favorite piece). Visit Queen of Hearts if you get the chance. It is definitely worth the trip.
