Adjectives Market and Unhinged

 If you live in Orlando or you're just visiting, be sure to stop in at Adjectives Market.  This shop has over a 100 dealers in 20,000 square ft.  Featuring the best in Vintage, Antiques and Art.



It is one of those places that I Feel Cool walking in the door.....Heaven knows I'm not cool, but it's great to feel that way for a couple hours.   They have all different styles and era's of merchandise.

So, here's my biggest decision....Should I start shopping upstairs or downstairs?








Adjectives Market is one of the Polka Dot Flea sponsors and this last weekend I was busy handing out Polka Dot Flea postcards at the grand opening of their new venture across the street.  

Adjectives Unhinged


Unhinged is a great, unique concept  

It's a place where vendors can rent storage units with roll up garage doors.  The doors are left open during store hours


 The units are filled with mostly unfinished furniture which customers can purchase, or they can pay more and have the piece customized with a paint finish of their choice.


 Here's the really cool part..If you rent a space at Unhinged you can use their fully equipped work room.... 



......With all the tools you could possibly need for furniture rehab. How great would this be if you lived in an apartment or simply wanted the mess out of your garage. 


I'm comforted to know that when It's time for me to move into a nursing home, I will still have a place to get my junking on (lol!)

Adjectives Unhinged also has 2 huge classrooms for teaching classes to the public on everything from paint techniques to upholstery

Adjectives Market....Another place to visit in Orlando besides Disney World!

Happy Creating!
Carol

They must Love you - this is a wonderful shout out, Carol! Oh, the places and people you know makes my heart sing of envy.
I went to an antique fair this weekend but I tend to get lost among the antiques and just odd things. I wish I had you nearby to help me going through. I wish I was in Orlando - Talk about respect for things and people.
Thank you for sharing,

Looks like an all day excursion, Carol! : ) We have a place here like that in size {upstairs/downstairs} about 40 minutes from me. I haven't been in awhile. Now that the weather is nicer I think a trip is in order!

That was a fun tour...Thanks for taking us along!!!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What a great concept, but I'd never get anything accomplished...it would be more like a social hour for me, lol. Thanks for sharing with us Carol.

Donna said...

I would be in heaven shopping there, Carol! I love the idea of having a work space and shop, how fun would that be! It could be dangerous if I lived closer, I would be spending all of my money there:) Bet you are getting super excited about your upcoming show!!

Debbie said...

I just know I could get lost in that place, and it would be a GOOD getting lost too.

Loving the idea of the Unhinged part. That's the kind of place that our town is too small to support. I wish they had something like that at least in Savannah. What a great concept.

Kathy said...

What an amazing concept!! Loved hearing about it and wish we had something like that up here in Portland.

Cynthia said...

What great places and yes, Carol, you are cool. That Unhinged is a great idea for people that want a space but don't have a lot of inventory.

what a neat place to rent a space, never seen so many benefits before. I would also like to shop there,
The green stand with painted silverware on it would make a great hand towel rack or jewelry rack that caught my eye
