Shop Local-Abode

As I get going on my business I’ve been spending a lot of time hunting out local decorating and furniture businesses. I grew up in Provo so Salt Lake feels a little daunting to me. I am still learning how to get around and I am slowly finding great local little shops. I’d love to share them with you on this blog. Even if you don’t live in Utah I’m sure you can still get a lot of inspiration from these great places. 
Last week I stopped into Abode. This home and garden consignment shop on 900 E. in Salt Lake is seriously filled to the brim with treasures. Everywhere I looked there were amazing finds.  

Plus one saturday of every month during the summer they have flea markets in their parking lot! But, even if you can’t make it to a flea market you have to stop by the store and search through the array of vintage items. 
Here are a few things I enjoyed while perusing Abode. 

If you are local head on over there and tell them I sent you! 

1720 South 900 East

    I love little shops like this where you can find unique things. We have a bunch of these here in Brooklyn that I frequently stop into & never leave empty-handed.

    If you like Abode you MUST check out Emilie Jayne. They are also in Salt Lake and worth every trip. My favorite consignment shop hands down!

    Great store! Salt Lake seems to have such cute shops, so I know I'll enjoy the virtual tours. I'm trying to do the same in my town and discover more local treasures.

    Looks like a great place!!! I have found a few places like that where I live, but they don't do well around here 🙁
