Hunting for Vintage Furniture

A couple weekends ago, Stephen and I packed up the babe and headed up to Wheat Ridge, CO to check out a vintage dresser we’d spotted on Craigslist the night before. We didn’t know much about Wheat Ridge beforehand, but a quick internet search for “vintage furniture” in the Denver area showed that this unassuming city was a treasure trove for antique and vintage furniture lovers like us!

We hit up four shops on our way: Garage Vintage (in the Denver Arts District), modmood and RETRO Consignment, Mid Mod Vintage Furniture, and Wheat Ridge Used Furniture.

We had a great time soaking up the midcentury goodness even though some of the pieces we found were completely out of the budget. Let me tell you, walking through rows and rows of vintage furniture is my kind of heaven!



What’s even better, our shopping trip was a success! A random stop at Wheat Ridge Used Furniture yielded this rock-solid butcher block kitchen table.

Plus, we decided to pull the trigger on this midcentury dresser in excellent condition.

We were in desperate need of a kitchen table, and since our master closet is tiny, the dresser has added tons of storage in our room. I snagged the dresser photo from the Craigslist post, but I hope to give you a peek of it in our bedroom soon!

Where do you go for great furniture? I think we might be making more treks to Wheat Ridge in the future!
