On Monday I gave you the tour through Daddy O’s Vintage Sales in Lubbock, Texas. While I was there I asked the store owner if she had any 9 drawer midcentury dressers because that’s what I’m in the market for right now. She told me to go down the road to As Time Goes By and look there because they have lots of midcentury items.

Well, I looked it up on my GPS and headed down the road. And then realized that this place was literally two blocks from where I used to live. See, I really never took note of it because here’s what it looks like from the outside. (Forgive my Google screen shot)

Yep, it looks tiny and it’s in a strip mall with Ace Hardware and a gas station. I knew it was there because I’ve been to that Ace Hardware multiple times. Honestly, from the outside is SOOOO deceptive. Also, the sign above the doors say “ANTIQUES” really large and then the name. So, I thought it was just a small antique store.

Oh no, it’s surprisingly large and packed with tons of midcentury and vintage beauties! There are booths being rented out so it’s not all MCM but there are multiple booths with some really great finds. See, here’s an aisle shot from one of four aisles.

The ceilings are very high. Here’s the booth that I realized every single item in there was something that I want.

Do you see all of the goodness in there?! There were a pair of those awesome green chairs. Look at that orange and black stool, those textiles, that awesome rug, and OH that lamp! It’s all so pretty.

Just down the way from that spot was a booth containing this…

Amazing, right? There wasn’t a scratch on it and it was $575 firm. I think it was an RCA Victor but I can’t remember the style. I can’t believe it’s been preserved so well.

In this same booth stood this awesome lamp.

It was so tall and so sleek. Also, in practically perfect condition. The price was about $250.

Right when I walked in the store, this chair greeted me. Isn’t it unique?

The upholstery was in great condition and look at all of the shape this chair has while still remaining sleek. So pretty, right?

I can’t believe I’m just now discovering this store. If you’re in Lubbock you must stop by here! So many unique finds. Oh, and I didn’t even tell you about all the MCM lamps. They were everywhere and super reasonable. I told Brendan that the next time I go back to Lubbock I’m taking a trailer and loads of cash. You know, in my dreams.

That wraps up my trip to Lubbock and I really enjoyed finding these great shops! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
