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.

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.
