Orange Blossom Square

While on vacation we always take time out to head to the outlets in Foley, AL. This year was no exception but unlike years in the past it was crowded and we didn't need that much so we were in and out in less than two hours. That left us some time to kill. I so wanted to head over towards Mobile and visit one of Linda's from Coastal Charm spaces. She has a space at a place called Cotton City Antiques and from what I read it is over 12,000 sq ft of vendors!! I would have been in heaven but sadly enough it was just to far to drive. Next year though I told The Hubster we were stopping on the way in! 
I was determined to get some treasure hunting in though so I drove down the road aways and came across a place that had some true eye candy! The Nana actually spotted it.
Orange Blossom Square takes up an entire block! How I ever missed it on the way in I will never know. We have driven by it for years.
It is pure delight from the moment you step inside! I fell instantly in love with that chandy and would love to have it in our foyer even if it is a little over the top. It is gorgeous!
I had take some pics of the window displays. The walls are made from you guessed it pallets! Again more yummy chandys! Pardon the cutie patootie off to the side there!;)
I almost purchased that vintage watering can.
This side board was just gorgeous!
A beautiful plastic picture frame dressed up with what I think is chalk paint and some wax.  
I thought long and hard over that bread bowl. It was in great condition but alas the $140 price and the lack of space deterred me. 
I loved this roo pillow but at $38 I figured I could attempt my own version.
They had room after room filled with goodies. This room was their mark down room. Can you picture that armoire painted in some frenchy goodness!? 
Another awesome set marked down and I know if it had been painted it would have sold right away. Just look at all the ornate detail on the table! 
This mirror was HUGE and half off. Again lack of space. 
I spotted an area where all lamps were just $20. I will get back to that in a moment.
This vintage sled was just $60 and if I had had the room it would have come home with me. I already have my moms old sled she had as a child but this would have been great addition.
I liked so many things in this picture. The ladder type table and the old scale. Now that I look at it I even love the old fishing basket there that I didn't notice at the time.

Orange Blossom Square is a must visit if you are heading to the Gulf Shores/Perdido Key area. It is two stories of fabulous! Also if you get a chance stop at any of the three spaces Linda has. You can find them on her blog sidebar! I am sure they are just as dreamy!! Funny thing is is that when I told Linda I stopped at Orange Blossom she said she use to have a space there several years ago. Maybe by next year she will decide to open one up there again if I am lucky!:)
And of course I couldn't leave there without getting something! This lamp was just $20!! I had to dig to get to it and was not sure it was even suppose to be in that section but the gals said yep and I said SOLD! Its not vintage or anything but I really like it. The shades need a makeover because they are dirty but otherwise its perfect. I also purchased three matching blue mason jars with zinc lids. I can't find my pic of those right now though so I will have to share those once I put them wherever it is they are going to go.

  3. Love that lamp, Pamela! Great find and price! It looks like they have lots of great stuff. I'm finding that antique and flea marts are just like any other store now ~ sometimes the prices are good and sometimes you have to wonder where they came up with the price.
