Travel along Orange Avenue in Orlando and you are certain to find something special. I posted last week about my visit to Art Angels Arts & Antique Mall, they are located on the south end of Orange Avenue. After leaving I headed back north on Orange to find a couple more stores.
First a huge thrift store called, Community Thrift Store located at 5456 South Orange Avenue. I stopped in here. They had a huge selection of clothing. This store reminded me of the salvation army. It's not a pretty, pretty store but worth the stop.
My next stop would be the Bargain House, located at 3301 S. Orange Ave. You can't miss this one. A bright little yellow house, packed full of antique furniture. The owner Jim was very nice and let me take some pictures.
His store is packed from floor to ceiling with furniture. There is also a garage in the back that is overflowing with antiques. I didn't go all through the garage....that will be on my next visit :-)
The piece below just arrived and was priced to sell. It is gorgeous with such detail. Love it!
After leaving The Bargain House. I drove for a while to the North end of Orange Ave. I came across Something Different, located at 1618 N. Orange Ave. This was such a fun store offering midcentury to modern furniture. So many things here from 1960's and 70's. The colors are fantastic. As soon as walked in, it was a flash back to my childhood.....(oops showing my age now) Well have a look!
There are many more stores along Orange Avenue that I didn't get to on this day. The rain was moving in fast on me which rushed my visits. I can't wait to go back and see what I find! If you need directions to any of these stores click on my Store Directory.
I would like to welcome a new store to Thrift Happy.....
Art Angels Arts & Antique Market, located at 5515 S. Orange Ave, Orlando 32809.
I know you are going to love this store.....
After being in business for over 15 years in Orlando, Art Angels Arts and Antique Market has moved to a new location to expand their business. Their larger store now offers a florist, gifts, collectibles and over 35 antique vendors. You will find a selection of both new and used items.
Have a look at my most recent visit......
This small sofa was my favorite thing in the store.
It would look wonderful in my house.
I may be going back soon to bring this one home.
This vendor had a great collection of vintage decor.
The yellow is so vivid.
This vintage bar ware would make a nice gift for someone.
This desk and chair is so shabby chic.
I just love them....and look at this bed another vendor is selling
. They would look great together.
Every corner you turn something else to catch your eye.
This dresser is such a beautiful piece.
Sitting on top is collection of decanters.
The suitcases below are great to use for storage.
Stack a few on top of each other to make an end table.
It's a fun look...especially in a guest room
This 1950's desk is just $60 ....what a great deal...look at the detail.
These two pictures are Chinese Paper Cuttings. They are unbelievable....
I hope you all will visit Art Angels Arts & Antique Market soon.
If you see something you like here don't hesitate. The owner told me the merchandise moves fast....but not to fear she goes on monthly buying trips out of state. So you are sure to find something wonderful when you visit. Remember if you need flowers, they have a floral designer on staff. She makes gift baskets and beautiful flower arrangements.
Stop by soon and tell them you saw their store on Thrift Happy.
Thrift Happy continues to grow daily. All states are in the process of being added.
