On Our Way East Toward New York State We Made A Pit Stop In Columbus Oh. You Know I Can't Stop And Not Shop! Revue - Columbus OH. Status: Oh Yeah...They Got GOOD Stuff!
Nice pair, dontcha think?! We were barely into the first aisle in Revue - a Columbus OH antique mall and consignment shop - when we ran into this pair of Knoll Barcelona chairs. Oh how I loves me some Barcelona chairs! That got the camera out and it was well worth my time to do so. There was plenty there to photograph. If you live in or near Columbus OH you have a little of my envy! From the little we traveled through, we found it quite nice!
I can't speak to the prices here at Revue, but they definitely have the good stuff! Once I get the
camera out I pretty much quit "shopping". The Girlfriend LOVES this...even though it then takes
me forever to get through a shop or antique mall. At least I'm not filling the car.
And I know you all love to take a virtual tour of some of these places that might be a little too
far for you to visit yourself. Heck, I might even be introducing you to a place near you that
you've just never been too! This place was well stocked with vintage modern enough to have
THREE Eames lounge chair knock offs! Four, if you count the Homecrest wire frame lounge
I really had no idea what Columbus OH was all about. We had stopped for the night just out
of town and when we got going again I Googled "antique mall Columbus OH" and this was one
of the places close by. I couldn't resist. We drove up High Street and were duly impressed
by what seemed to us to be a thriving downtown. St. Louis is a great place to live but it's
downtown is more Ghost-town unless there is a baseball game happening.
Looks like I could do some serious pickin' here in Columbus! Remember, this is just ONE
shop! It's not even a Vintage Modern-centric shop either. There was plenty of fine antiques
here...but I know what you wanna see! I'm gonna have to take a peek at the Columbus OH
craigslist once in a while and see what I'm missing. I bet they get good estate sales too.
Check out those Salterini chairs! THOSE were pretty pricey. Those were one of the few things
I checked the price on. I WOULD have found a way to take those home with me...but I couldn't
afford them. ::pout:: The Girlfriend ALMOST pulled the trigger on the three rocket wing candle
holders, but we were just getting started on the roadtrip and it's hard to load yourself up right
away when you have no idea what's over the horizon.
Did ya see that little bitty danish / Pearsall style rocking chair up there? How freakin' cool is
that? Oh, if only it was full size! Too much cool stuff. It's like vintage modern Overload! And
lately I've got a thing for Bull statues. I know...it's not a bull. Water Buffalo? I dunno, but I
We spent way too much time poking around Columbus for it to not actually be on our list or
itinerary! I probably spent more than an hour in here alone. It's a big place. Even though I
took lots of pictures I'm sure I missed lots of good stuff. There's no way I could shoot all the
smalls that I would have loved to load up and take home with me. Don't get me wrong, I've
loaded Frank (the Focus Wagon) up for our return trip to the StL! I'll, of course, be sharing
that booty with you soon enough.
Two different sellers had vintage Brown Jordan patio furniture available. This style is really
growning on me. I'm a little concerned about the strapping and it's durability. I've never bought
any of it but I've seen a number of sets on the St. Louis craigslist. I might have to start picking
it up. I wouldn't mind having a few pieces to sprinkle around the patio at home.
If you live in or near the Columbus OH area and are in need of some very nice Vintage Modern,
Revue on High street might be a good place for you to check out. I was impressed by the on hand
stock as well as the diversity of what was to be had. Obviously there are cheaper ways to go but if
you don't have the time to hunt and gather or the time to wait for a particular piece to fall into your
lap, it's sometimes worth what you gotta pay a place like this (or more specifically, it's vendors) to
do the work for ya!
