City Antiques in Roswell

Our Atlanta group of bloggers has grown tremendously since I moved back here 3 years ago and we recently had a meet-up in Roswell for a business meeting. A local well-known photographer came out to share with us and we  held the meeting inside City Antiques building.  It’s been great to get to know this group of local bloggers and  I’m glad that Erin put this Facebook group together. If you are a local Atlanta blogger and don’t know yet about the Atlanta Facebook group, click over and join.  It’s a great way to connect with other Atlanta bloggers and learn and share too.

After our meeting, we all went next door to the large City Antiques mall, set up with different vendors as most antiques malls do these days.  I had never been in here before, although I had seen the sign as I passed by many times on Holcomb Bridge Road.  I had no idea this large building was hiding behind the street storefronts, but this is definitely a fun place to browse.

City Antiques

It’s definitely a fun place to browse, so if you want to check it out, they are right on Holcomb Bridge Road (on the left) heading East before you get to GA. 400.

Now here’s my spot of the deal of the day.  This is an old oak table and chairs.  The top definitely needs some TLC, but check out the price.

I thought this was a fabulous deal for this table and chairs.  The table could be sanded down and the to restained and the base would be pretty painted black or white (or stained too).

Not the best pic with my point and shoot, but you can never go wrong with beautiful dark stained traditional pieces.

They do lots of estate sale furniture too, so there might be some bargains here.

If you get the chance to browse City Antiques, I would definitely recommend it!

  1. Hi Rhoda! Oh, what a wonderful place. I see so many things I would love it have. My aunt and uncle lived in Roswell but have both gone home to be with the Jesus.
    I’ve been loving your pictures on FB too. Y’all were really cute on the bikes.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  2. Oh, fun! My husband is taking me to Atlanta next weekend for a Valentines Day present. I was thinking that I need to research your blog for all of the Atlanta places I have wanted to visit because you blogged about them.

  3. Looks like a great place…will have to place it on my “must visit” list!!! Glad you all had a great time!

  4. Next time I come to Atlanta I am using your blog as a reference on where to go for great stuff! Thank you for sharing all of these great places!

    • Lots of great antique shopping in Atlanta- don’t forget ‘The Board of Trade’ and ‘Classy Clutter’, both on Alpharetta Street in Roswell.

    I could do some damage here! What a difference great displays make, too!

  6. Heading down in March on a girls trip from Indiana. Will definitely have to make this stop! Can’t wait, you all got just a taste of what we’ve been living with this winter. Can you say “Cabin Fever”? Thanks Rhoda for all of your insight and knowledge, and for sharing it! Love your Blog!

  7. Thanks for the shout-out Rhoda! So glad to have you in the group. I’m going to have to head back to City Antiques soon! I had to hurry home and get ready to move to our new house so I wasn’t able to shop after the meeting. I did head back and buy a table in the estate sale building though. Love all your pics!

    That was fun and I can’t believe the deal on the round table and 4 chairs…Loved!

  9. City Antiques in Roswell is great, the staff is so nice and they have a great selection of merchandise. Do you know about A Classy Flea in Marietta? They have a great mix of antiques, & vintage furniture & home décor. They have great prices & bring in new (old) merchandise just about every day of the week. You might already know about this place, but I wanted to be sure.

    Also the Green Bean Exchange on Hwy. 9 just about 4 miles north of Holcomb Bridge Rd. Same setup as City Antiques; individual spots rented by sellers. Just past Red’s Liquor Store on the right in a cockeyed situated strip mall.

  11. Thank you for showing off all the lovely pieces. Living in CA where the cost of living is high, it’s interesting to compare prices on furniture in antique shops and from estate sales. The items you mentioned are comparable.

  12. I would get in trouble in this place! I wonder if I have time to check it out in March when I’m in Atlanta for the Design Bloggers Conference.

    I’m actually gearing up to sell my vintage treasures in the new Newburgh Vintage Emporium that’s just like this, with 50 vendors, in New York! It’s a lot of work but I’m so looking forward to style and stock my booth. Going to be a lot of fun.
