Victory Antiques in Savannah, Georgia

As we were driving to Savannah from Tybee Island last week, we passed a charming looking little antique store. I quickly turned the car around and we spent some time exploring Victory Antiques. As we entered the store, we were almost immediately greeted by the store’s friendly owner, Liz. A friendly shop keeper makes a huge difference and she was very helpful without being overbearing.

Victory Antiques is located in an older home on East Victory Drive. We entered the store and there were beautifully furnished rooms on each side. The store has more than 40 dealers. The main hallway was certainly well lit with some beautiful antique chandeliers.

This Art Nouveau chandelier was unique and made in greens, golds, browns, and creams.

This alabaster lamp was in one of the first rooms we visited. It was gorgeous and very heavy.

It was displayed on this beautiful dresser topper.

5261

I liked the way they decorated this drawer with fake grass.

5263

Pretty corner cabinet.

5264

This was an absolutely beautiful display piece.

5265

They had a large collection of colorful oyster plates. And some nice fish plates.

5266

A pretty lingerie chest on sale. These always seem to sell quickly.

5268

This booth was full of clocks.

These prints of the ladies in their fancy dresses were very nice.

A Victorian magazine holder.

A very pretty Victorian mirror.

The tole tray on the back of this display was huge and very pretty. There were lots of nice serving platters too.

5278

A beautiful oil painting.

5280

A petite French side table.

Another one, this time triangular.

And here is the piece that I almost brought home (behind the chair). It was a small bookcase. Unfortunately as I began to remove items from the shelves to inspect it more closely, I realized it was very wobbly and probably not sturdy enough for frequent use. I really liked the carving on the sides. That pretty floral needlepoint leaning on the bookcase would have looked good with the rest of my needlepoint display. Oh well.

I think one of the things that I liked best about this store was that it was a true antique store full of vintage and antique items. It wasn’t full of the farmhouse decor or other new-made-to-look-old pieces that you see in so many antique stores today. I would definitely want to shop here again the next time we are in Savannah.

    I, too, enjoyed the tour. Although I like repros, upcycles, and farmhouse decor, I am not tempted to touch, i.e., feel the smoothness, worn from generations of use, the new stuff. The new wood is rough, glass is not as heavy, patina is chemically induced; the only history it will have is when you bring it home. My favorite furniture is all “hand-me-downs” or vintage finds. Actually, a lot of my favvorite belongings are vintage treasures! Not valuable antiques, just special to me!

  4. What a charming shop! Thank you for bringing us along & for sharing at Vintage Charm!
