A New Boutique!

Meet Candi. Can you see her there in the back? I met her yesterday when I stopped in her Inman Park boutique appropriately called "Authentique". Isn't that the cutest name??

I was getting lunch with my sister at Pure Taqueria (if you love Mexican food, live in Atlanta, and haven't been there, you're missing out! DELICIOUS fish & shrimp tacos!!!!) and saw her shop across the street. She was so nice (and approachable!!!) and has some great stuff in her store, some sourced and some refinished. I like that it's small with a casual vibe and reasonable prices, especially compared to some of the more well-known spots in Atlanta. Candi even let me in on a few of her secrets--I love it when owners are down-to-earth and approachable!!! But enough about that, let me show you around . . .
Here's a closer look at some of the things I really loved.
LOVE these factory carts, and they're just like the ones at Restoration Hardware, but without the crazy price tag. Lakeitha @ Swoon Worthy Boutique was just talking about busts yesterday! Here's one I really like.
Hello, gorgeous!! These lamps reminded me a lot of the ones I refinished, but these are fly!
LOVE the bamboo lamps--LOVE. The shade, the style, the shape--everything. Pure perfection. I also love the stripped wood lamps, and I loved the black & white lampshades and small brass tables. (notice I keep saying "love" . . . are you picking up the fact that I really liked this store??) When I start sourcing for clients, which is ultimately one of the things I would like to do, you can bet I'll be pulling stuff from here. If you stop by, please let her know I sent you!

**Also, as a little teaser I'll let you know that I should have some very cool news next week, and I'm hoping that you all will be as excited as I am!!! Betcha' can't guess what it is . . . . :)
