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.
Here is a highlight of my favorite places to visit:
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.
