My husband and I explored an antique mall that was new to us yesterday. When Saturdays are cold or wintry we like to ride in the car looking for antique stores in our region. We have discovered the best ones within a 50 mile radius. This one was in Belmont, North Carolina and is called the Catawba Antique Mall. The warehouse contained over 88,000 square feet of booth spaces. Vendors displayed rustic, retro, french inspired and repurposed antiques. Whatever your taste in decor, you could find almost anything you like. It was amazing! Here are my finds. The best item was a wooden ladder that I plan on using to display my newly restored quilt. Upon my restoration expert’s advice, I will spray paint it first with an acrylic spray to avoid any discoloration from the wood onto the fabrics. Stay tuned for the finished results.
