It’s a fabulous place to shop for antiques… if you have a lot of money to spend. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any of the great deals that were present during Lauren’s visit. Naturally, everything that caught my eye was pretty pricey. Be that as it may, MAI is a wonderful space. Unlike most of the antique malls or stores I have been to, it seems very edited. There isn’t a whole bunch of junk to sort through. You can tell that the people who have booths here love design (they don’t just find old junk and mark it up for others to buy) and most have beautiful and unique merchandise that is displayed in interesting ways. Most of the booths are painted taupe or grey and have seagrass rugs. I spent a good while in there admiring everything. I noticed that they have a lot of gorgeous mirrors, cool lamps, a lot of shells and coral and some beautiful, carved salvaged doors. If you’ve never been, it’s definitely worth a visit.
This booth had so many cool pieces. I love the hanging clock, white mirror, and tripod lamp.

Pretty crystal and alabaster lamp bases
I’m not a big fan of toile, so I’d rather see these chairs covered in a more modern fabric, but I do love the Venetian mirror.
Did Fabian have them put this sign up especially for my visit? This booth had a ton of these signs made from vintage flashcards. I though they were cheeky and clever.
Same booth- cool chair and some sea shells
MAI has so many beautiful mirrors! I love this starburst.

Courtney, this antique Bingo set reminded me of you! It was probably the cheapest thing in there at $75.
I love these antique religious articles, especially the Spanish Santos. You see a lot of this in Spain and in San Miguel. I have to go back!

I really liked this booth…lots of good stuff

I’m just gonna put it out there. If anyone would like to finance a career in antique scouting for me, holla at your girl as the one and only Tim Gunn would say. Your responsibilities would include sending me to France, Belgium, England, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Buenos Aires, and other fabulous destinations on a regular basis in order for me to return with some amazing finds. What a life! Can you imagine?
