George Street Antique Mall, Alton Illinios. Don't let "Antique Mall" put you off. Status: Hidden Treasure.
Yet another great stash of Mid Century furnishings looking for a new home. Plus the place is right in the middle of "antique row".
There are maybe a dozen more shops and "malls" within walking distance of the George Street joint. Some look like junk shops (but don't expect junk shop prices) others are very nicely kept and well lit. Plan on making a day of it! Just down the road about a half mile is the world famous Fast Eddies Bon-Air bar and grill. This is THE place for lunch. I'd waste half a paragraph talking about it, but you can Google it.
Anyway, so check out the Vladimir Kagan by Chromecraft dining set! Cool huh? Who knew you might find something that Mod in a pretty little town known mostly for it's patron Giant? Oooh, and that Russel Wright dining suite is uh...sweet! Call Sharon @ 618-463-1693 for pricing and availability on anything you see here. The hours are Noon to 5pm (I think...don't hold me to that!).
