If you have not been following my blog for long, I would like to introduce you to a good friend of mine, Carolyn Pressgrove, owner of the fabulous shop, Mulberry Heights Antiques.  Her shop is absolutely stunning.

Nestled in charming Mountain Brook Village, a Birmingham, Alabama suburb, the shop has a collection of English and French furniture, accessories, art, lighting, pottery, and so much more. Her knowledge of English and French antiques is extensive.  You most likely have seen mention of her lovely shop in many publications over the years.

To learn more about Mulberry Heights Antiques, visit the store website here, and visit their great blog here. If you see something you love and can't visit the shop, please call 205-870-1300, and Carolyn or another member of the knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you find exactly what you are looking for. 

I have included some beautiful images of the shop below.  Don't miss the gorgeous paintings at the end of the post.   ENJOY!

Hi, Teresa - I'm SOOOOO happy you featured Carolyn's shop: Mulberry Heights Antiques. Now I know where to find more creamware, transferware and ironstone china. And all those toleware and papier mache trays. Fabulous shop, indeed!! Not only is Carolyn talented, she is very kind and gracious. Her shop exudes the same gracious hospitality. I am a big fan of her blog and, her Pinterest boards. A great way to start this holiday week, Teresa....Thank you!
Cheers from DC,

I Dream Of said...

Wow! What a fantastic shop! Looks like just the kind of place I'd like to go on a treasure hunt. I'm forwarding this on to my friend who is about to go home to Alabama to visit family - this looks like her kind of place.
Happy July, Teresa!

Thank you for the little stroll through Mulberry Heights. I had a design stores for eight years and while I loved doing the buying and merchandising, working the counter was something I couldn't make myself do in the slow times. I gave it up two summers ago. Lovely post as usual Teresa! Shiree'

The enchanted home said...

OMG........I would go BONKERS in her store...what fabulous taste she has!!!!! Amazing array of gorgeous things...I would have zero self control. Its worth a trip to Alabama! I will have to remember this when I take my southern road trip:)

Carla Aston said...

What a beautiful shop! Carolyn is quite the curator of lovely things, and a sweet blogger too! Thanks for sharing this peek into her world.

Hi Teresa, what a beautiful shop!! So much gorgeousness! I've always wanted to visit Birmingham & will definitely stop in when I do. Hope you have a great 4th!

Things That Inspire said...

One of my favorite things is exploring beautiful and unique stores - and exploring them virtually is great too! Carolyn clearly has a great way with styling too, as every vignette is beautiful.

The ICAA-SE is planning a weekend tour of Birmingham in the fall, and I am definitely planning on going - I have never been there, and everything I read and see about the city is wonderful!

What a beautiful shop full of my kind of treasures...gorgeous artwork!! Hope you have a wonderful 4th ~

Oh next time I go home I'm going to have to stop by this little gem. I've never been in, but have heard about it! I always stop in Homewood, but never make it to Mountain Brooke. I hope whenever you get to stop by in Mountain Brooke, you get to stop at Big Sky Bakery, they have the best bread, granola, and cookies! I'm obsessed with the toile, love, love them!!!

What a wonderful shop. So many of our little shops in our town are gone. Miss having shops like this.

Splendid Willow said...

Carolyn is very talented - just look at her many lovely vignettes! If I lived closer I would be hanging out in her store - all the time!

Happy 4th to you lovely Ms. Splendid! I treasure you.
