Antiquing: Orange, Ca

One of my more favorite Southern California antiquing destinations to is Orange, CA, a quaint, little town just northeast of San Diego.  The center of town, complete with a square and fountain, is home to a wide array of antique stores and antique malls, the number far larger than the size of the town would suggest.   I have sourced many wonderful pieces here throughout the years.  They have just about everything, from great primitive pieces at Down Home Antique Store to fabulous antique accessories at Country Roads; it runs the gamet and can often be quite funky.

This particular trip I was drawn to texture.  We purchased a fabulous collection of wicker mirrors and a pair of French Bamboo night stand for clients.

I often find on these trips that it isn’t just the goods that inspire, but also the surroundings.  I just love this trim detail and think it would be a beautiful addition to a library.

And of course, an antiquing trip is not complete without a fabulous meal.  If (when) you go, you must stop at Provisions and snack on their outrageous cheese selection and beers.

  1. I love antiquing! This makes me want to visit there for a weekend, or actually move there! And cheese and beer sounds like a perfect way to end a fun antiquing trip :)

  2. Amy,
    I always jot down your antique store recommendations. We live within 30 minutes of the Orange Circle and it’s been ages since I’ve shopped there. I’ll have to visit this winter.
    xo,
    Karen
