A Haven for Artists
It's hard to give a door as a stocking stuffer for Christmas... right? Well, you should be thinking of Southern Accents for your holiday shopping and know that we are SO much more than a store of large antiques. We are a happy haven for artists, decorators, and anyone who has a love for creating or using historical artifacts. Our store is FULL of small, one-of-a-kind items perfect for gift giving.
All of the items pictured are currently available in our showroom. Each of these items have been made from materials that would normally have been burned or hauled to a landfill. The rustic Christmas trees and picture frames are made from salvaged wood and bead board by a local craftsman, Leldon Maxcy. By salvaging the wood and repurposing it into something new and useful, we've contributed to the sustainability of our planet. Leldon also makes the lovely wood Christmas ornaments shown above.
The magnet board is made from old ceiling tin and salvaged barn wood. We gathered up small hardware pieces from around the store and turned them in to some really cool magnets for the board!
We love to partner with local artists. Local artist, Amber Stone uses old windows as a canvas for her beautiful paintings! Amber takes windows that would normally be tossed, cleans them up, and turns them into works of art.
This past weekend, we hosted an art showing for another local artist Mandy Maples Phillips. One of the art pieces that Mandy brought in is this magnificent cross. The cross, made from tree limbs wired with beautiful beads and stones, is mounted on salvaged barn wood.
While you are surveying your shopping list, we hope that you will keep Southern Accents in mind. In addition to the hand crafted items, we also have a great selection of small antiques. Each has a story to tell and is sure to be treasured by anyone on the receiving end. We also offer gift certificates which are perfect for that person on your list who may just be too hard to shop for! We truly appreciate our customers and are here to help you this holiday season with your gift giving needs!

As always, a visit to our NEW ARRIVALS page will reveal our latest store additions! We just posted some beautiful cast iron decorative pieces along with quite a few wood and cast iron pulleys.

We have two new pairs of tall stained glass panels as well as two blacksmith tools that we are very excited about!
Our Special this week is an adorable table that has been refinished with Annie Sloan chalk paint. The table has two small drawers and pull out arms. This cutie would be a great accent piece and is available to the first one to call or come by and claim her!
