Antique Mart Inspirations!!

I am currently trying my best to complete and furnish the Twirl Vintage Co. main Headquarters ( AKA - our House) and by GOLLY the choices are just endless! The first challenge is that I don't know if I'm a "shabby chic girl" or a "retro modern girl". The hubs thinks that "shabby chic" is just a froo froo way of saying "old and tattered", but I much prefer the romance of it all and I find myself often inspired by my weekend trips to the charming little antique marts of the South. Infact, here are some pictures from a mart that I stumbled upon during a recent trip to Atlanta, Georgia....
This handmade table is just too delicious for words. I adore the white washed table legs and chairs. It is a bit too long for our dining room, but a "shabby chic girl" can dream....
Still not the size we are looking for, but equally as beauitful.  The white cotton chair covers are so grand...they give the room a romantically fresh and clean look.
More handmade gorgeousness from this dealer. Now this vanity would fit perfectly in my closet...
And then there are the other distractions when I find myself waundering the antique marts...there are just so many curiosities and inspirations that I find myself circling the mart at least 4 times before I leave....
 Classic lady vases....
 Beautiful early 19th Century Mother Of Pearl Encased Opera Glasses
Love, love, love this retro 1950s jewelry tray..so pink and dainty
Hubs says "N-O!" to the fringed lamps, but they kind of remind me of antique dresses!
Mags of the past....especially love the one with the Kennedy Kids...

Feel free to give a shout out to one of your favorite Antique Marts in the comments line, or share some inspiring pictures from one of your many visits...
