I think the most common question I am asked is ‘Where did you get that?’ So I thought I would share where and how I shop for furniture.
Of course some of these are local sources and others you can order from all over the US. Ready? Here we go.
Yes I have found some amazing things on Craigslist, seriously! This piece was found on Craigslist for example, and the crib turned settee on my front porch was also a Craigslist find. This is not a sponsored post but has one affiliate link.
I found my desk at the auction house. This one I got at Morton Kuehnerts in Houston.
These pieces are from Gallery Auctions in Houston.
The headboards are from Target. Can you believe it?
This chair is from StillGoode in Houston.
A & G ANTIQUES
The black chairs are from A&G Antiques in the Houston Heights.
The table is from Chippendales in the Houston Heights. (No there are no naked men there, sorry.)
This table is also from A&G Antiques.
The table and console are from Restoration Hardware.
The chairs below are also from Restoration Hardware.
The desk below and the table are from Marburger in Round Top.
The ottoman and the Gustavian bench are from Lauries in Tomball.
This chair is from World Market.
HEIGHTS ANTIQUES ON YALE
The desk below is from Heights Antiques on Yale in the Houston Heights.
Okay I hope that answered any questions you had about where I find things.
When you buy on Craigslist, what do you search for? I never seem to have any luck finding things.
Amazing sources, dear friend!!!
It must be a “sign of our economic times” as many of the Antique Shops have closed!!!
Yesterday, “Mr. Ed” and I made a trip 30 minutes South and all but one of their shops had closed!!!
I have yet to attend an Auction, but have it on my “To Do” List this Spring!!!
My daughter~in~law hope to make a Round Top visit in the future, as well!!!

I always love to see where people shop. You have so many beautiful pieces which work so well in your home.
You should check Rummel Creek Village Antiques at Memorial and Wilcrest. A lot of antiques at good prices!
