Oh, the places I’ve been! A new friend from church took me to a wonderful antiques place in Pell City, which is outside Birmingham towards Atlanta. She’s been there several times and told me all about how great it is with good prices and pretty pieces. She was SO right! David Tims Antiques is a wonderful place to find imported furniture from Belgium, England, and Argentina (of all places!). I’m not an antiques expert by any means, but I know what I like and I know I liked a lot of things there. David was written up in Southern Living magazine and has been selling antiques for over 30 years. And twice a month, they have antiques auctions, which I’d love to go to. We drove up and saw the shop which is housed in an old general store off the main road and I instantly knew I’d love it. I was right!
Nothing is marked with price tags, so you have to write down the numbers on the tag and then ask for prices. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable everything is. If I was in the market for any antique furniture for my home, you can bet this is where I’d go.
There is ornate things all the way down to primitive.
Many, many beautiful china cabinets and buffets.
Tiffany lamps and stained glass windows.
Big and small armoires.
Love these chairs.
View from the front door looking towards the old wooden staircase. Upstairs are oodles of oil paintings. They are pretty reasonably priced too. Doesn’t it look like an old and quaint shop? The hardwoods creak when you walked.
Oil paintings and the prices on those weren’t bad either.
View looking downstairs from the upstairs gallery.
And then down the street is the 2nd location, a big red barn that’s filled with more things.
My friend was interested in this piece, but didn’t get it the day we went. It was $650.
This pretty French glass cabinet was $850.
See anything you like? Yeah, me too!
This was pretty bed and nightstands.
Corner cabinet was $285.
This is the scene outside the warehouse barn, right next door was horses & cows.
And this old house sits next to it, which they also own.

Thank-you for a most enjoyable trip…..Blessings
Yes, I certainly enjoyed this excursion. Your photos and captions provide close-up views of the place.
After surfing here I now know I have to visit Alabama – the thing they say about southern hospitality must be thrue!

I could spend days in a place like that! Especially with some money in my wallet! How much fun.

What a great selection of beautiful and unique pieces. It kind of reminds me of walking through my mother-in-laws house. She used to deal in antiques so her whole house is decorated in beautiful solid yet worn/loved pieces of wood furniture.
