Considering how often I go junking with my family, I really don’t post about it too often here on the blog. Well, let’s change that. I mean who doesn’t love getting inspired by gorgeous antiques and repurposed furniture, right? So today I’m starting with a local St. Louis find that I stumbled across this past weekend: the Chesterfield Antique Mall.
And what’s funny is that I pass by this one almost everyday and never popped in. Now it’s only been in business since last December so I don’t feel too bad about that, but seriously… this is 3 minutes from my work and I probably pass by it 5 times a week.
Chesterfield Antique Mall features about 60+ different vendors from the St. Louis area. Each one has its own little nook in the building (and it’s amazing how big this place really is on the inside!).
This place is also very selective of their vendors. One of their employees was actually telling me that there’s a waiting list to get a booth in here, plus there’s an “interview process” that the applicants have to go through. So you know the stuff in here is crazy good, right?
There were some really amazing pieces in here, including some furniture that I was totally drooling over.
Ben really wanted this black buffet and hutch (below) for our breakfast room area. It was priced at $700, but it was the wrong color for the space. But man, it was a beautiful solid piece.
I also really loved these Fall and Halloween signs that were painted on old cabinet doors. LOVE this idea! Makes me want to stencil or buy a vinyl cutting machine.
And these other signs made out of scrap metal spelling out words like “love” and “faith”… super cute. I just love going to thrift stores or antique malls and getting inspired.
Oh, and if you’re from the St. Louis area, they had a bunch of Cardinals items too. The baseball USA flag artwork would be too cute in a little boy’s bedroom or a finished basement.
Overall I completely loved the Chesterfield Antique Mall. I’m going to have to check out this place about once a month to see the new inventory they get in. And I can’t wait to see what they get in for Christmas season!
And if you’re in the St. Louis area, the STL Vintage Market Days is this coming weekend. The Chesterfield Antique Mall is having their own little outdoor market on October 10th from 8am to 4pm. Plenty of vendors, food, pumpkins, gourds, hay, mums and cornstalks. Stop by and let me know what goodies you find!

Thanks so much for the info. I will have to check it out. Looks like some great stuff.
So glad you enjoyed the antique mall. You will also need to visit the shop across the street. It is called Fleur de Chic and it is in one of the bungalow houses. It is more of a boutique shop rather than antique. We have painted furniture, repurposed items, handmade items, as well as a lot of brand new home decor product. From what I see on your blog, I know you will love it! A friend and I have the room in the back which is called The Tended Nest. We have lots of Fall merchandise and will soon be bringing in Christmas!
Oh, thank you for the comment Laurie! We spotted that place when we were leaving and almost popped in. I’ll definitely swing by soon and share some of my finds on here 🙂
Very cool place!!
I’ve been wanting to go there since it opened! We go to the valley at least twice a week, but never make it there.
I wish I lived closer! I would love to go there!!
