Staff Pick

Step back in time to the music halls of yesterday!  This week’s Staff Pick is an extraordinary swivel piano stool with iron claw and glass ball feet, estimated to be from the late 1800’s (priced at $165).  If you’re thinking this stool needs to be sitting at a piano, think again!  This would make an interesting end table or a bathside stand stacked with linens.

Check out those gorgeous feet!  You just won’t find exquisite details like this on contemporary furniture.  Stop by Mimi’s soon to see it, along with our other great treasures.  You never know what you might find!

Oh, the Possibilities…

Gardening season is upon us!  Angie, one of our regular customers, came up with this ingenious garden border idea using Blue Willow dinner plates, saucers, and salad plates that she’d been collecting.

Angie said, “I hope this inspires someone to use any type of plates, cups, saucers to liven up their gardens around their homes this spring and summer.”

At Mimi’s, we have shelves full of affordable vintage and contemporary tableware that would make excellent garden accents.

What possibilities do you see?  Come to Mimi’s and get inspired!

Remember the Moms

It’s that time of year again when we all take some time to honor the mothers in our lives. Did you know that Mimi’s Attic is practically dedicated to moms?? It’s True! The ‘Mimi’ in our title is actually business owner Kelly Moreland’s grandmother! So maybe you can’t name a whole business after your mom this year, but you can probably find her something nice at Mimi’s!

Does your mom like to garden? We’ve got loads of garden accessories and vases for her to display her creations in (or maybe a nice bouquet you can pick up for her). Does she like to cook? Our kitchen aisle is filled with like-new appliances and gadgets to aid chefs of all skill levels. Does she light up at the prospect of bringing new life to found objects? Mimi’s is a treasure trove of inspiration! Does she like coffee? We’ve got mugs! Tea? We’ve got kettles! Do you have no idea what your mom likes? We’ve got gift certificates! To top it all off, we even have got gift boxes! Whatever you decide to do for those strong, beautiful, brilliant women, just DON’T FORGET IT’S MOTHER’S DAY!!! This Sunday May 13th, remember the moms!

Staff Pick

There’s just something about antique wood furniture, don’t you think? The craftsmanship, the intricate detail, the history; it makes you feel cozy.  At least that’s the way we’ve been feeling since this gorgeous entryway cabinet moseyed out of the past and onto our sales floor.

It’s simply glamorous! Twin candle holders flank its mirror, reminiscent of a time before in-home electricity. Its original hand-crafted drawer pulls still hang delicately from the facade. It is sure to add drama to its next home and at $300 it’s practically a steal. Come take a look!
