Discover Your "DIY" Self

Summer is definitely DIY time!  It is warm out and you can throw open the windows and doors and make some great changes!  Changing the look of your home does not have to be super expensive.  Just changing paint color, decorative touches, accessories, etc.  Making changes like this are so rewarding to both you and those who get to see the results.  Take time to wander South End Antique Mall for some great ideas on sprucing up your home, both inside and out.   Discover your “inner decorator”!
New artwork on the walls

Start your own collection of yellow ware pottery

Bring a pop of color to a blah shelf or window sill

This would not only add a theme to your kitchen but give you more storage!

Little pops of color can add interest to a buffet or shelf

Red!! This will brighten any room!

Signs are a great way to fill empty space on walls

Change your door hardware or put up some vintage clothing hooks in the bathroom

Happy Birthday To Us!!!

 Our little building has been around since 1919!  It has had many lives such as a bag factory, a pickle factory and a turkey hatchery.  They added the lower level of the building (where a lot of our antique mall spaces are located) in 1966 and the front entry and counter area in 1977.  Memorial Day weekend marks our 14th birthday!  We always celebrate this in a big way and that is coming up this weekend!  Our vendors are already packing their treasures
into the mall.  The sale runs from Saturday through Monday so plenty of time to stop,  shop and have cookies and coffee.  Everything inside and outside the store is at least 10% off with many vendors giving even deeper cuts. We have many vendors setting up tents in the field next to the store so our inventory explodes!   Make sure you mark your calendar to stop by and wish us a happy birthday!

Start Your Mother's Day Shopping Early

OK, now it is time to get serious about your Mother’s Day shopping.   Celebrations for Mother ‘s can be traced back to the ancient Greek and Roman times, but it officially began for the U.S. in 1914 when Woodrow Wilson signed a measure setting aside the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.  It does not matter if you have a mother or not; you can celebrate the special women in your life on this day as well!  Today’s women have such a wide variety of collections and interests that you need to take time for a dedicated shopping trip.  We have something for all of them!  From the vintage clothing collector to someone who loves fishing.  We cover the entire gambit!  We can even provide you with a gift card for South End Antique Mall if you can’t make up your mind.  Take time to visit Aurora this weekend and make South End Antique Mall your destination for gift selections!
