Urban Relics Consignment

I'm back in Georgia and had to stop in at one of my favorite consignment stores
Urban Relics.

What exactly is a consignment store and how does it differ from a thrift shop or antique store? Well, a consignment store takes items from clients on approval to do the selling for them. So if you are moving or remodeling and don't want the hassle of having your own garage sale or using ebay or craigslist, that's where a consignment store steps in . They can tell you what your item is worth and how much you might get for it. Most consignment stores take 50% of the sale price. Consignment stores are a great place to shop for gently used items. They will NOT take all of your broken, cast off and outdated items. 

So, back to Urban Relics...

 Debbie Greene has had her shop for about 5 years now.Consignment stores are very eclectic but she does an amazing job of making everything look put together.

The front of the shop has some great displays, 
very Farmhouse Chic

 and Martha's Vineyard Nautical .

In a consignment store you can find anything from charming sets of vintage children classic books, 

to gleaming copper, 

 and my favorite, ironstone!

There were lots of baskets,  

a wonderful antique tiger oak  sideboard,  

and a contemporary mirrored dresser. 

At Urban Relics you won't find clothing, but there are gently used designer handbags, 

and lots of fun jewelry. 

 Of course, I found a couple of fun things to take home with me. I know I'll wear this beaded necklace with my lavender and turquoise t-shirts. And I love these new aqua tumblers from Pottery Barn at a fraction of the original price.
It's well worth a stop in to Urban Relics whether you're redecorating or just browsing!
Located at 4651 Sandy Plains Rd, Roswell, GA
