It’s Nicole, Annette’s web-manager and friend here today to introduce something near and dear to me: my side-hustle, Grandmillennial Shop. For nearly two years, I have been perusing estate sales, thrift shops and antique stores for the very best grandmillennial style items. Then, I sell my goods during my weekly sales on Fridays at 9 AM, EST and Sundays at 5 PM, EST.
Are you familiar with the term grandmillennial? It was coined by former House Beautiful editor, Emma Bazillion a few years ago, and it has stuck as the definition of those of us who love great antiques, spend time needlepointing, and can never pass up a vintage floral fabric. Basically, it’s me. And no, it’s not granny-chic. It’s more than that.
I have always been an old soul. I bought my first antique in 2007, and have been stocking my house with them ever since. I love chintz and chinoiserie, and I have a sterling silver collection that might rival your grandmother’s. Ironically, my great-grandparents owned a furniture store in Montgomery, Alabama. I never knew them, but I like to think that their spirit lives on in my love for old things.
Plus, you simply cannot beat the deals and the quality found in vintage and antique pieces. I’ve even convinced my friends and sister of it! For example, the below rug is a vintage, Chinese rug. It’s handwoven, and my sister scored it for $35!!!! It’s a lifetime piece, and it’s fabulous! The next photo is of my Brunschwig & Fils scallop black-out drapes. All 6 panels were $300. WOWZAS.
I get most of my finds at estate sales. They’re so fun to peruse because you get to see how people used the items for sale (hello inspo!), plus who doesn’t love a house tour? My number one tip for finding estate sales in your area is to use estatesales.net. It’s such a great website! You can see how far a particular sale is from your location, as well as see photos to see if it’s worth the trek. I even used it last week while on a buying trip to central Florida! I pulled it up, found a sale a few minutes away, and left with some awesome goods!
If you’re in Atlanta, you can shop with me at Westside Market Toco Hills. But if you’re not local to Atlanta, you can shop with me via Instagram. I sell everything from vintage P. Kaufmann fabric to mid-century barware and even contemporary Grandmillenial finds like tassels that match the overall aesthetic!
I’d love for you to follow me over at Grandmillennial Shop on Instagram. It’s a fun, vibrant follow, and it’s quickly become my pride and joy! Thank you, Annette, for letting me share my shop here. I can’t wait to go thrifting with you in Italy!
