It's Friiiiday! i.e.-The Big Reveal

I know we've been teasing you for days, and don't think it's been all fun and games 'cause we have been seriously working our tushies off, but finally, I can spill the beans. I'm thrilled to pieces to introduce a project, a dream really, that has been in the works for quite sometime. Susie, Jenny, and I have been scheming and plotting and arm-twisting to birth this baby and here she is. Introducing MINTY, our little "shop" that could.


We willed her into existence and here she is all brand spankin' new and shiny, just waiting to be explored. Housed in Antique Factory, a wonderfully quirky, eclectic warehouse-cum-storefront here in Atlanta, MINTY is your destination whether you are on the prowl for that must have piece to add to your collection, that show stopper item that will make your space dazzle, or a special gift for a design-obsessed friend. Be sure to visit our little corner of Antique Factory often for an ever-revolving selection of wonderful vintage furniture, beautiful accessories, unique art and gorgeous textiles.

We are just getting the ball rolling on our MINTY site, but MINTY is now open at Antique Factory. If you are a local, a southerner, heck, if you reside anywhere in the continental United States, drop by and see us at:

5505 Peachtree Road
Chamblee, GA 30341

770.455.7570

Hours are: Monday-Saturday, 11-5

We are currently selecting pieces for our online collection and MINTY will soon be offering online sales. In the meantime, in stock and ready to go home with you, we have everything from Bertoia chairs to Eames eiffel chairs, paintings by the inimitable Jenny of mfamb, lacquered pieces and vintage art, a fabulous brutalist headboard and the most amazing brass, glass, and lucite tables you've ever laid eyes on. Oh, and don't even get me started on the lamps. So all you faithful and ever-so-stylish readers, let us satiate your design cravings. Shop, MINTY.

A huge thank you to everyone who has already reached out with kindness and excitement merely in anticipation of our announcement. So much of our success in this venture will depend on the word of mouth of friends. We hope you will spread the word, friends.

This is so exciting! I can't wait for my next visit to Atlanta. People will ask, "What' the purpose of your visit?" And I'll say, "I'm here to visit a booth at an antique shop. Oh, and I'm here visiting family too, but first I'm headed to Minty." Can't wait!
