Get Your Holiday "Vibe" On!


Halloween has come and gone, so now we need to take a deep breath and head into Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Our vendors have stocked for both holidays!  I found beautiful vintage turkey platters and tureens as well as some outstanding Christmas décor.  Our horse, “Ambassador”, is hooked to his wagon and is just starting to get his holiday vibe on!  November is a busy month for us here at South End Antique Mall.  We have our Holiday Sale beginning Friday, November 24th and running through Sunday, November 26th.  The entire store is 10% off with many vendors giving even deeper discounts.  We are gearing up to meet your holiday decorating needs!  Be sure to mark your calendar now for this event!  The Aurora Colony has some terrific special events coming up as well!  Watch for a full list!

Just Give Me The Blues!

Color! Who doesn’t love pops of color in their kitchen!  Some of that mid-century china has done a wonderful job of giving you just that.  Those pieces of blue china from Hall China Company, Oxford, and Shenango are great examples of this.  They have outstanding shades of blue.  I especially love the more utilitarian pieces.  Consider the pitchers, bowls, refrigerator dishes, and tea pots as prime examples.  They are still perfectly good to be used, but can also be stashed on a shelf or cabinet for that special pop of color.  Stop by and check out the selection at South End Antique Mall.  February 11th – 12th would be the perfect time to do that.  We are having our first store wide sale of the year!  It is our Sweetheart Sale.  The entire store is 10% off with many vendors offering even deeper discounts.  The Aurora Antique District will also be having sales February 11th – 12th so Aurora is definitely the place to be for the weekend!

The little blue teapot was made by Lipton!

This little refrigerator dish was made by Hall for Westinghouse

I don't know if I could actually use this bowl!  Too beautiful!
