Antique Store and SO Much More!
Consistently, we have customers walk through our showroom door for the first time and their immediate reaction is "Wow"! After browsing the store for a bit the next comment we typically hear goes something like this, "we didn't realize you had all this other stuff". Being an architectural antique store lends itself to an image of large, heavily carved doors and mantels. We have those, but we also have SO much more!
We have seen a surge in customers looking for salvage goods to use on Do-It-Yourself projects. Pinterest along with all the fabulous DIY television shows has brought about a greater awareness not only of why to recycle but more importantly, how. They help by feeding those of us who are 'creatively challenged' great ideas on how to repurpose salvaged goods! Many used items can easily be given new life by turning them into something totally new and useful. If you follow our Blog then you've already seen our shutter transformation. We showed you how to turn an old dirty shutter into a beautiful, vintage wall piece used for displaying jewelry and pictures. We also recently posted a couple of magnet boards made from old ceiling tin and salvaged wood.
Southern Accents is SO much more than just an antique store. We have a genuine interest in preserving the past in any way we can. We love when customers walk through our doors and discover some worn out items and envision them repurposed into a new life. You can almost see the light bulb go off in their heads! We enjoy this aspect of our business as much as we enjoy restoring an ornate door, mantel or clawfoot tub to it's original beauty.
If you're within driving distance we hope that you will plan a trip to our showroom soon. Whether you are looking for that magnificent architectural antique to place in your home or small salvage items needed for a creative project, we would love to show you around.
