Atlanta Antiquing

I've recently returned from a fabulous vacation in charming Georgia. My daughter moved to Atlanta two years ago and fell in love with the city and a fabulous guy! They were married one year later and just celebrated their first anniversary. So it was time for a return trip to Atlanta to see their new home-and do a little shopping! 

Megan and Brian now live in Marietta and it was fun to explore their neighborhood and see what treasures I could find on afternoon outings. My favorite antique store in Marietta was the Queen of Hearts. It's a large antique mall with many fabulous vendors. So often multi-dealer shops can look cluttered, cramped and messy. This place had beautiful displays and vignettes throughout.

I really wanted to put this Country French sideboard in my suitcase. 

Loved the lace ribbon garland!  

So clever, I wonder if I have enough small pots to duplicate this whimsical wreath... 

This was just part of a Fiesta ware display. 

I bought this Italian serving platter for Megan and it is now hanging in her dining room along with several others.

I do love Frenchy pillows! 

I had such a  great time browsing and bought a few small things to tuck into the suitcase. If you're looking for something unique I highly recommend Queen of Hearts on Sandy Plains Road in Marietta! I also spent a great evening shopping at the Cobb Antique Mall in Marietta. Put them both on your list!
Next post I'll share with you what I bought...


  1. Good Evening Karee, My daughter lived in Dunwoody, Atlanta before she moved to India and I visited quite a few times. I do love it there.
    The Baker's rack took me my surprise as it was painted turquoise, not a colour I would have expected and the ribbons and lace are just fabulous.
    My favourite items are the blue and white dishes, they look familiar, but I cannot quite place them. I would be happy to use them in conjunction with my dishes.
    Enjoy your evening.
    Best wishes

  2. I love your blog! Love the blue dishes too! I am new from southern charm. I would love for you to check out my blog and hopefully follow me back. Nicole

  3. I have never been to the Marietta store, but love the Alpharetta one. Marietta is a bit far for me. Love those blue dishes.

  4. Hi Karee, We lived in Atlanta for 20 years and I do miss all the great shopping...especially the antiques.

  5. What a fun looking place to shop! I am in love with that cute wreath made of pots, and the aqua baker's rack is gorgeous!

  6. Thanks for the visit Karee! So nice to meet you! Following you now : ). ~Ann
