Number 83: Antiquing

Number 83: Antiquing
This one was super fun. (I think I've said that about them all but I don't care they really have been super fun so far!) Instead of heading to the Exchange District though, I went to The Old House Revival Company which is right behind my office. They have 4 levels of some seriously cool (and old) stuff. I went with my dad a few weeks ago and we were there for a good 1-2 hours, but just went back recently so I could get some pictures to post and I spent a solid hour in there, again.

Seriously, I can't express how much of a grandma I can be sometimes, but this must take the cake. I think I was born in the wrong decade. They have everything you can possibly imagine: chandeliers, typewriters, books, dishware, clothes, lamps, furniture of all kinds and the list could go on forever. I also love that they have a variety of doorknobs, hinges, locks, and a number of other vintage parts. They are perfect for giving your cottage/cabin that old time feel or even your home.

I was pretty close to buying that dress

If I had a garden, this would be in it

I took this picture because I swear to Zeus I have the same set at home!
I told my parents it meant they are ancient. 

My absolute, ultimate favorite part of this store is the books. OH THE BOOKS. The bibliophile in me almost stroked out when I found a 1910s printing of Treasure Island. 

I have very little experience with antique shops, but this one has instilled in me a love of all things retro/vintage/downright OLD. Love love love. I could spend hours in here. 

You can find The Old house Revival Company at 324 Young St. 

Here's there website if you were interested in checking them out (which you definitely should!).


  1. So funny! I have lived in Winnipeg for less than a month and already been to AAA Consignments twice in Osborne Village. I didn't think anywhere could top it, but now it sounds like I have to check this place out. Thanks for the tip!

    1. No problem! I hope you enjoy Winnipeg. If you ever want any tips or advice feel free to contact me I'd love to help :)
