Pilgrimage to SuzAnna’s

I've been dying to stop in and check out the finds at SuzAnna's.  Yesterday was finally the day.  Business took me to the southwest corner of Virginia and I took the opportunity to visit with my mother in Johnson City, TN.  I specifically too the NC route home so that I could swing into Raleigh and have a stop at SuzAnna's.

Thanks to Mary at Across the Pond for turning me on to Suzanna's.

I have been on the hunt for a vintage iron patio chair and I had a feeling I would find exactly what I was looking for in Raleigh.  Suzanna's did not disappoint.

Despite the 99 degree weather, I had a ton of fun meeting the proprietor's Susie and Anna and well as their right hand gal Linda.

And I found my chair!


SuzAnna's is tucked back in here, back by the railroad tracks.




I love stuff arranged by color, especially turquoise!

And here is my chair.


Today was the annual yard sale at the Cat Corner.  (That is the cat rescue place in Hampton)  I found the perfect cushions to go with the perfect chair for $2.  I found a few other treasures too.


My favorite thing is the package of vintage mid-century furniture legs.  I should have my husband cut kidney bean shape from some plywood and make a cool table.  Hmmmm. 

(OK, Typepad is making me crazy with the type, I can't seem to get it all the same, arghh)

  1. Oooh, that looks like a fun day of shopping!! What a great place, looks like a person could spend a lot of time (and money) in a place like that!! lol Congrats on finding your perfect chair.
    Smiles, Karen


  2. Looks like a great place! It takes a certain skill to make a bunch of old crap look groovy and must-have…those two women look to have that skill. πŸ™‚ Glad you found your chair!


  3. wow, that looks like fun
    kudos to you for braving the heat – that is the metal of a true die hard junker! πŸ˜‰
    great turq finish on the chair


  4. That looks like a fun place to shop. Love the chair and the pad. I love when things are arranged in color displays too. Especially the red and torquoise stuff. Oh and yellow too. Love yellow!!!


  5. Hi Suzy,
    Ahhhhhh…that looks like such a fun place to ramble through!! Next time you go let me know and I’ll sneak in the backseat! πŸ™‚ I love that piggy bank sitting up on top of that cabinet! Too cute!
    Hugs, Bebe πŸ™‚
    P.S. Just noticed your new header and those gorgeous plants. Have you been feeding them Miracle Grow on the sly? LOL!


  6. Oh Suzy, I can’t believe I missed you. I should have called the gals that morning and told them that if you showed up (as you did) to call me and I would have popped over – I’m just 15 mins. away.
    Anyway, glad you found ‘the chair’ it’s neat looking, and that you enjoyed treasure hunting despite the awful heat. Those are just the best gals ever, aren’t they? Today it’s much worse and will be 103 tomorrow!
    I’m off to find a cool, shady spot – perhaps the front porch – and pour a tall cool drink. Have a fun weekend.
    Hugs – Mary.


  7. Oh fun! The thrill of the hunt during yard sale season. I can’t wait to start “saleing” here! The colors in that chair are perfectly in style again. Excellent hunting and gathering skills Miss Suzy.


  8. The chair is awesome, but the turquoise is perfection!! I just nabbed a pyrex chip and dip set in the turquoise hot air balloon pattern, and I cannot quit looking at it!


  9. I just love all those yummy colors together in that cabinet…aqua, green, yellow, red…those are my colors. Cool chair! Are those little lamp figurine finials? Too cute.


  10. Isn’t it great when you anticipate finding the ‘perfect chair’ and then meet it face to face? Lucky you! And I have the match for those red Swedish candle holders :).


  11. WOW, I think I would have to show up with a U-Haul trailer if I went shopping there…I see so many things I would like to have!!
    Great finds!
