I’ve been buying up a storm lately for my new home since there were so many things that I didn’t have to begin with when I moved.
I didn’t even have a dresser! (and lots of drawer storage is a must in a house this small, with no closet space) I am always on Craig’s List looking for vintage finds (which can certainly be hit or miss), but a few weeks ago I tried typing in the search term “regency” juuuust to see what would come up. Turns out, there is a whole booth at White Elephant Antiques in Dallas that is Kelly Wearstler-esque! Most of the booth’s listings were on Craig’s List and I was pleasantly surprised to see furniture pieces that stylish on there (no offense Craig’s List, but you can get pretty outdated looking at times).
I joined the booth’s email list and got the sweetest email from Kristen, the owner and buyer for the booth at the WE. She asked me what I was looking for and of course, I proceeded to tell her my entire house list! It turns out, she had just the pieces for me. I ended up buying a white bamboo dresser and four cane back dining chairs (and I didn’t even desperately need dining chairs, but who could pass up such a good deal!)
Kristen sells out of her finds very quickly (her prices are very reasonable), so it’s best to hit up her booth before the weekend. She has done so well at White Elephant, that she is now acquiring the booth next to her existing one, so she will have double the space (and double the goods!)
Below are some of her current pieces in her booth (but I guarantee they won’t be there for long!)
I had to admit to Kristen that I’ve been to White Elephant for the past four weeks in a row (and multiple times in one week). Antique shopping really has become an addiction. I felt better when she admitted that she was a consignment store stalker too and am pretty sure there must be more of us out there!
