Del Ray Consignment Adventures

My friend and designer Nancye Lewis, of Rabbit Runn Designs, introduced me to two fabulous consignment shops in Del Ray, a darling neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia yesterday:  Potomac West Antiques and Not too Shabby Consignments. Both are full of possibilities - I ran around saying "I want this, I want that, I love this, I love that!" I could have left with a wagon-full.

Take a look.

I want this, I need this, I LOVE this...pretty please.

I want a few of these too...

I sort of shrieked when I saw this...would be a fun, very over the top desk chair.

I had to click this photo for Tricia Huntley of Huntley & Co. - she has a similar one in her office, maybe it needs a friend?

A vintage map of my home state! This really thrilled me.

Hardware treasure hunt.

Bamboo + Cane = Lovestruck. Enough said.

Everyone needs a charming little Cotswold painting...

What I left with...

I have a thing for pitchers...this one "had to" come home with me.

My guest room "work in progress" will soon have a wall of frames and funky mirrors...these will be included. I'll post pictures once I tackle that project.


  1. these places are great! one of favs for asian antiquities is Banana Tree on King St in Old Town... maybe your next visit to Alexandria?

  2. Jenny - Just saw this post. I do love me a dragon!
