The Best of the Best!


Does your “heart of hearts” want true antiques?  You need to stop by South End Antique Mall!   We try to find the best of the best out there to provide you with authentic, quality antiques.  There is nothing like those sturdy, solid wood pieces that last for generations but still retain such beautiful style and functionality.  They range from dressers to antique trunks for decorating and storage ideas.  Take time to stop by and enjoy a spacious and comfortable shopping experience!

Old trunks make great coffee tables!

Take a Deep Breath and Step Into Fall

Can you believe it's already fall!!  We here in the Pacific Northwest have had a traumatic end to our summer and I feel like we missed a nice chunk of it due to smoke from wild fires.  Now, it is time to take a deep breath of our clean fresh air and look at all the fall colors that seem to be appearing everywhere.  It is time to reclaim our decorating spirit for the upcoming holidays.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up fast.  Start bringing those glorious fall colors into your home!  Be sure to stop by South End Antique Mall for a preview of all that is fall.  Make it this weekend as the Aurora Colony Visitors Association is hosting an outdoor Farmers Market and Antique Sale Saturday, September 26th.  There will be lots of treasures available for your decorating ideas.  South End Antique Mall will have some vendors offering great discounts so be sure to stop by!

Don't Look Now........!!

Can you believe it?  We are heading into fall already!  Where did the summer go?  I think we have been a bit distracted this year and fall is sneaking up on us quickly.  We are slowly transforming into fall décor here at South End Antique Mall.  If you look closely, you will even see a bit of Halloween making its way in.  I love the fall colors and the opportunity to flip around our colors and themes.  Don’t waste time making your way to our antique mall!  The fall décor and Halloween inventory moves out fast! The Aurora Colony Visitors Association will be having another "Autumn Outdoor Antiques & Farmer's Market" on September 26th.  This happens in downtown Aurora.  Don't forget to wander on down to South End Antique Mall and check out or treasures.  We are located just a few blocks south of the downtown core area (heading towards Woodburn).  Our next store wide sale will be in November so watch for the date!

Bring On The Small Stuff

A trip to your local antique mall can be an adventure!  You might be looking for just the right piece of furniture, a special lamp, the perfect china or just about anything from your childhood.  The one thing a trip the mall does NOT have to be is expensive!  There are so many ways to add interest to your home décor with just a few smaller pieces. Those classic old salt and pepper shakers look great on a shelf.  Antique linens on a towel bar, ceramic flower frogs that don’t even need the flowers to look terrific. I could go on and on but you need to make a trip to Aurora and visit South End Antique Mall and check out these treasures for yourself!  We are gearing up for an outdoor sale August 7, 8, and 9th.  We are offering everything inside and outside of the mall at 10% off with many vendors offering even deeper discounts.  Aurora Colony Visitors Association will have an outdoor Farmers Market and Antique Sale on the 8th so you can combine your trip!  Take time to put your shopping shoes on, tuck a mask into your pocket, practice your social distancing and check out all the neat treasures you will find!

It's The Small Things That Count!

With all the uncertainty whirling around these days, it seems to me it is time to start focusing on the “little” things.  Sometimes just a small change in what you normally see can be soothing and give you something else to focus on.  I love the pops of color that vintage treasures can provide to spruce up a small spot! It can be pictures, china, salt and pepper shakers, signs, etc.  Just tuck something old in a small space to give it fresh interest.  Now for some NEWS!  The Aurora Colony Visitors Association will be hosting the “Aurora Outdoor Antiques & Farmers Market” on August 8th.  There will be vendors setting up outside so you can browse through a selection of treasures!  South End Antique Mall will also be hosting an outdoor event August 7th – 9th.  We will be setting up tents in our parking lot and the field beside the store.  We will be spacing things out a little more than usual to help with social distancing.  If you feel like a visit to the country be sure and mark both events on your calendar!
