Even though this past weekend was a whirlwind of family, friends, and football games I did manage a stop at Circa 1857. I love this store and try to stop by everytime we go back home to Baton Rouge. They have tons of architectual salvage, art, food, music, parties ect. There's even a yoga studio! I get inspired everytime I go.
I love to just wander around see what I can find. I don't know what it is but I love this old stuff!
A pile of rusty table legs! How cool would these be with a piece of wood or stone on top?
Lots of old window bars like the ones I made my end tables out of. (I got mine for free though..;)
Oh a whole row of chairs like my red vintage chair on our porch! I couldn't convince the hubs that we needed a whole set.
These things are so cool but I'm not sure what they are. Old biscuit baking pans? Jello molds? Who knows but I love the patina and there are a ton of them. Maybe they could be fitted together for a table top or something.
Another odd find. Metal traffic cones? The large one is as tall as I am.
Drawers full of rusty odds and ends!
Another great thing about Circa is the art you can find there. A lot of it is made from materials found from the store. They have paintings, sculpture, and antiques as well.
The outdoor space is so nice. You can order lunch and sit out on the patio. They have bands and events here on occasion.
I have not been able to find such a place in San Antonio yet, if anyone has any clues let me know!
Does anyone else have a favorite junk spot they like to frequent? Where do you go to just browse around and get inspired?
