Why didn't I know about this place!?

Why haven't I heard of this place!?  It's right down the street from Class and Trash and I've never been in.  It's definitely a hole in the wall kind of place but WOW is it full of treasures!  I could have spent all day in there! 

It's called Billy's Dodge City Antiques and it's located at :  12083 S. Washington Hwy./Route 1in Ashland.

Here's a shot of the inside...jam packed with goodies!

I found this mid-century coffee table for $35...I'm totally into the  mid-century stuff!  Wonder if it has to do with my Mad Men obsession?!  Would love to paint it and spruce it up!

They also had a bunch of these tobacco baskets with I think are so neat! 

 And they had a slew of candlewick glass items, so beautiful! 

 These ducks caught my eye after Young House Love's Sherry and John's goose find.  I think they would be fun spray painted some funky color.

 I thought this was so pretty! $12- It's called a Fire King dish

 They also had a bunch of beautiful ornate mirrors.  Love what darling octopus did with hers here.
This one was $29

If you are in Richmond you should definitely check this place out!  Such neat stuff!

You all HAVE to come back tomorrow.  I have the craziest, thriftiest decorating advice EVER!  I am still in shock myself! 
 It is going to knock your socks off!
Can't wait to reveal it to you!

And don't forget to come on over to my new facebook page!

  7. Yes Melissa, its right near Class and Trash! A little past it on the way to the Ashland Goodwill. If you are going North its on the left hand side, kind of tucked in the back. Looks like an old run down motel used to be there or something. I added the address above!
