Just a quick introduction to a new series that I am starting today… Market Nine – The Hunt! It is no surprise, to those who know me well and maybe to those of you with whom I am just getting acquainted, that I love to shop for all things home. Be it a newly created market find, a flea market bargain or a roadside treasure, I love it! It’s really the thrill of the hunt and the inspiration infusion that I love the most. And, every time I am out hunting and gathering, I think of you and wish I had my camera so that I could share the adventure with you. So, here it is… with camera in hand and a focused mission… Market Nine – The Hunt! You can think of it as a shopping guide for all things Deep South and Wild West!
The first stop is close to home… Golightly’s Gallery and Antiques located at 5505 Davis Blvd., North Richland Hills, TX 76180.
I found out about Golightly’s while shopping the drawer hardware isle at Hobby Lobby. I was searching for vintage looking drawer pulls and met a fellow “vintage” shopper who told me that, “Golightly’s is a place you HAVE to go to!” So of course I went! She was right on… Golightly’s is a treasure trove of old and new home love goods! Today I will show you one particular booth that is located to the far left of the the store as you walk in.
This particular vendor carries a nice selection of old white linens. White bed linens are classic. In my home every bed has at least one basic set of white bed coverings. They are so versatile: you can dress a bed in all white for a light airy look, add in gray and natural linen for a soft comfortable feel, or add a pop of color to bring vibrant energy to your space.
If you are in the market for an old chandelier, she has it. She has done a nice job of updating them with real wax candle sleeves and silicone dipped bulbs. They add class and richness to a light fixture. You may also have noticed that she carries burlap product as well. I love burlap because of the texture and warm color it brings to a space.
She also sells the candle sleeves and bulbs individually, so that you can embellish your own chandelier or replace a burned out bulb. I purchased a set of these while I was shopping. I will show you what I have done with them before long.
This is Golightly’s store front. I love the charm that the awnings add to the drive up. And the dormers with their flowered window boxes are adorable too. The best part of the shopping experience is the friendly, helpful service. They definitely have the Friendly Texas Welcome thing down!
