Shop Birmingham: Urban Suburban

This is the first of a new series of posts I'm starting about where I love to shop for furniture and items for our home or just browse for inspiration.  For my first post in this series, I'm starting super close to home.  In fact, one of my new favorite shops is Urban Suburban in the heart of our neighborhood, Crestwood.  It just opened on August 3rd and has already found a special place in my heart.  It's full of great furniture pieces...

(I adore that rug under the antique French chair!!)

Urban Suburban is not your run of the mill antique market.  They've got a truly unique atmosphere and besides all the great antique and vintage finds like these amazing vintage suitcases that clearly have a story to tell...

or this entire booth of awesome vintage signs...

Check out those AMAZING light fixtures!

They also rent booths to local artists to display their work...

And it also doesn't hurt that it's right next door to Crestwood Coffee Company where I've become a regular.  Nothing puts me in an antiquing mood like an iced coffee and a homemade peach muffin.

So, if you're in the Birmingham area and looking for a new place to treasure hunt, I highly recommend you take a Saturday afternoon to browse Urban Suburban!  You'll probably see me there!


  1. Will definitely have to check this place out! That peach muffin doesn't sound too bad either... :)

  2. Great find! I love this kind of stuff! Let me know the next time you want to go to some garage/estate sales!
