Yesterday I needed a fix! A serious thrifting/antiquing fix!
But today my fix was more specific - I needed to visit Jackson Square Mall!
The building that houses the mall has a long history. The original structure of 10,000 sq. ft. was built in 1907. In 1920 an addition was added to bring the building to 47,000 sq. ft.
The design was based on Portuguese and Moorish stylings, and was used as a warehouse storage unit. A cool fact of the building is it's freight elevator was large enough to allow the horse drawn vans to be loaded and taken up to the other 4 floors where the goods were loaded.
The antique mall is housed on the 1st and basement floors.
There are 45 booths in the mall - one on the first floor.
Always looking for blue plates in this booth, great dish collection!
My favorite booths are downstairs, so off we go!
Coming off the stairs, you can see a bit of that huge elevator on the right,
This booth always has great industrial pieces - see that metal tool cabinet , if only The Charmer was larger!
same booth, other side
another area of the booth, I so wanted the locker bin, not my price point!
A booth that always has a nice stash of linens..
Another great booth, lots of cute pieces...
All the booths are nicely staged...
If your ever in the La Grange, IL area, make sure you stop at Jackson Square Mall!
La Grange also has some a really great venue of restaurants to choose from.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
What are some of your local favorite malls?
