Queen of Hearts Alpharetta: Part 2

On Monday I shared some of the photos I had taken at Queen of Hearts Antiques from the previous weekend. This is a continuation of that post. It really is an awesome store. I definitely want to go back again by myself (my children were good sports about going to an antique store but I didn’t want to spend too long there because I know they don’t enjoy it as much as I do). The store is huge. You could easily spend several hours there. I like that they seem to carefully screen potential vendors. I don’t think I saw any junky booths. Everything was clean and well decorated. The booths showcase the latest decorating styles while incorporating lots of lovely antiques.

As we made our way through the store on Saturday, we came to a huge room in the back corner of the building. It was full of some gorgeous pieces. It had beautiful pieces of furniture and lots of equestrian/hunting smalls (artwork, derby hats, antlers). It was so well decorated.

This double secretary/bookcase was my favorite piece. You would need a large wall space to use it, but it was gorgeous.

A pretty antique platter. Is this a moose, or elk, or caribou?

As we made our way back towards the front of the store, we saw this booth with a nice display of lavender.

On the opposite wall of the same booth were some pretty copper pieces.

Another pretty booth at the front of the store.

And then we came to this huge display of transferware. There was red and white, blue and white, and brown and white. So many beautiful pieces. The prices were a bit high but they seemed to have what I would consider hard-to-find pieces and unique serving pieces.

Look at those gorgeous serving platters.

And the coffee and teapots.

One final picture from a booth somewhere in the middle of the store. I just thought this secretary looked so pretty and fresh painted in this cheery yellow color.  I don’t know if I would have painted such a nice barley twist antique secretary, but whoever did it certainly picked a great color.

Well that’s it for today. I am heading to Scott Antique Market this Friday. It’s not in my budget to buy anything this week, but I still enjoy looking and taking photos. Scott Antique Market is open the second weekend of the month. Dealers from all over the southeast come to sell their vintage and antique items and it is a great place to go to find some beautiful and unique items. I definitely recommend visiting it at least once (or every month if you can).
