Mystical Treasures Emporium

Mystical Treasures Emporium

Readers, we have done you a grave disservice. We have driven down Mulberry Street hundreds of times but only recently have we made our first venture into the Mystical Treasures Emporium. Perhaps you’ve passed it by as well. It’s the purple building on the left as you go toward the freeway from Carter Hill. We […]

Junior League Holiday Market

With Halloween still a few weeks away, it’s hard to get into the holiday spirit just yet. That is, unless you get yourself down to the Crampton Bowl Multiplex for the Junior League of Montgomery’s Holiday Market. There, Christmas is in full swing. We’d never been, so I wasn’t sure what to expect — maybe […]

Ten Things at the Eastbrook Flea Market

Ten Things at the Eastbrook Flea Market

By on 29 March, 2016 in Fun, Kate and Stephen, Shopping with 0 Comments

We’re noted junk store enthusiasts. We’ve written about our adventures in Southeast Alabama and elsewhere here, but the other day it occurred to us that we’ve (weirdly) never written a post about one of Montgomery’s great treasures – the Eastbrook Flea Market. Which is a shame, because Eastbrook is really a wonderful place and we’ve […]

Last week Carole King alerted us to the New South Maker’s Emporium, a pop-up shop full of goods by local artists. The folks at Helicity were kind enough to share some pictures from the store as well as a partial list of vendors here. If you haven’t stopped by, there’s still plenty of shopping time […]

If you enjoyed Montgomery’s first attempt at new innovative retail—the Pop Up Shop, Tallapoosa Street Goods—you’re gonna love this year’s holiday Pop Up! The 2013 Tallapoosa Street location was in business for less than three weeks and sales totaled $11,000, with 33 artists selling goods from a week before Christmas to a little after New […]

Back in September, Sandra Nickel reported here that local florist Al Cantrell was taking neighborhood development into his own hands by creating Al’s Antique Mall on Mulberry. The spot’s next to the closing Gun & Pawn shop and is destined to become a neighborhood fixture. We stopped by a few weeks ago to see what […]

Shattering Some Misconceptions about Homebuying

Shattering Some Misconceptions about Homebuying

By on 27 October, 2014 in Real Estate, Sandra Nickel with 0 Comments

It’s fascinating to me how stuff gets passed off from person to person “as the Gospel truth.” And fictions about the homebuying process are among the most widely spread mis-truths going around today. So if you — or someone you care about — is thinking about buying a home this fall, listen up! Misconception: If […]

On the Wetumpka Junk Trail

By on 17 February, 2014 in Kate and Stephen, Shopping with 0 Comments

It can seem like Wetumpka’s pretty far away. We have friends who live there, and sometimes they (and we) refer to them as living “in the country,” but really it’s just a few minutes up 231 to the greater thrift/pawn/vintage/antique zone. This fall, we had the opportunity to drive along Maine’s antiquarian bookseller’s trail – […]

Prattville Pickers

A relative who has just moved to Montgomery is looking to furnish the house he has purchased. He’s not really a “new furniture” type of guy. He’s more of a bargain hunter, looking for something classic and timeless and overlooked. He wants to furnish his home with treasures — but is on a budget. As […]

An eye for design was the starting point for Stephanie Moseley’s Midtown children’s boutique, born. And it shows. The crisp, modern interior of Moseley’s store is filled with designer-worthy decor for nurseries and kids’ rooms, fashionable (and functional) items for new parents and fun, stylish clothing lines for little ones. The colorful container of suckers […]
