Fun shopping at Rink Gallery

Over the Christmas holiday, we did A LOT of driving!!!  We went thru 4 states - Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.  We had great weather and a great time visiting family.  Hope each of you had a joyous holiday!!! I am looking forward to a fantastic 2012.

While in Oklahoma staying with the in-laws, I happened upon a fun shopping excursion - Rink Gallery.  Housed in an old ice skating rink, Rink Gallery is a collection of suites with vintage, antique and re-purposed finds. You can find vintage signs, antique chests, old records, framed art, memorabilia, funky accessories, refinished furniture and everything in between.  This is MY type of place!  I love shopping in places like this not only because of the history and nostalgia of looking at old things but the inventiveness of folks in how they upcycle these items into something current and fresh. 

Here are a few pics of my shopping trip, too much great stuff to take pics of it all.  You will just have to check it out for yourself!

 I loved this shelving - would be great in a playroom with baskets for each nook.  Attach a little chalkboard tag to label each basket {legos, barbies, etc} so the kids can put their own toys away!

I LOVED this side table!!! I really, really, really wanted this table.  Did I say I loved this table???  Where would I have put the table for the car ride home with all our luggage in back?  Strapped to the roof was not an option....sadly....but I did consider it...for a minute or two.

 This vintage bowling team picture cracked me up! Wouldn't this be a fun addition to a gameroom?

 Loved all the color of this space!  Especially the bright and graphic painting technique on the back wall.

This high-gloss, blue tray table was so cool! Fun and funky!

  I couldn't walk away without buying one of these.  An old bike wheel, re-purposed as a photo holder with clothes pins to attach your favorite photos, notes, cards, memos, etc.  It has hanging hardware attached to the back.  Love this idea!  

And of course, I am always on the look-out for my favorites - silver and pewter pieces.  I had to have these -  love the curves, shapes and patina. And since I love all things in turquoise - had to nab the wire tray too!!

If you are ever in the OKC area {Bethany}, check out Rink Gallery.  Great way to spend an afternoon browsing.....and buying!
