Anyone who has watched the HGTV show "Fixer Upper" knows how Joanna Gaines loves to utilize shabby chic furniture. She mixes it with unique pieces that make each home a place of comfort as well as easy to live with items that are simple yet timeless. She would love shopping in this store!

There a great selection of different pieces that she would undoubtedly find of use in her decorating scheme. How the massive inventory is displayed looks as if a designer had a hand in putting these vignettes together.

It doesn't take money to have style, it just takes a really good eye. Sometimes you can find amazing culinary antiques that will make it feel like an old French kitchen.

Displaying of the Merchandise

What is most appealing as one wanders through this two-story edifice looking at the different display areas, is the use of space.

We have visited some antique stores in which there was little wiggle room to navigate between the items on display. It made it difficult to really appreciate what was on view and for sale. The Red Queen's Attic is spacious with wide aisles and walkways.

Though there are a variety of vendors selling merchandise, the appearance of what is on display looks very much edited. For the most part, toys are separated from teacups, and the majority of the books are located in one area as are vintage wedding garments.

Continual Changes in Inventory

It would take many visits to appreciate all that there is to see in this fabulous antique, collectibles, and gift store. With the ever-changing inventory, it must be fun for visitors to do their shopping there.

Pricing seems to be very affordable. One of the owners told us that some antique store owners in the Houston Heights actually shop here to then offer the items at higher prices in their stores.

Memory Lane

Visiting stores like this is similar to taking a trip down memory lane.

In one room dedicated to primarily showcasing vintage children's toys, I spotted a box with paper dolls. A fond memory, when I was a child, is sitting at our kitchen table with my mother playing with paper dolls. I think that she had as much fun as I did in crimping the tabs and changing outfits on those dolls. Spotting things like that can instantly zap one back to earlier times.

Handmade Cards

While most items are vintage, there are also some new things for sale at Red Queen's Attic. The handmade cards pictured above serve as one example. We found a couple of thank you cards to our liking that we purchased. Seasonal cards such as those for Valentine were also on display. They were suitably on display in an old Ferry-Morse Seeds container.

Antique Store With Bar

When is the last time you have visited an antique store that had a bar? Jeff Messer, who is one of the owners, told us that they find the bar of use for various functions held in their store.

By now, you should have an idea of why we found the Red Queen's Attic such a delightful place to visit.

        Hi Ann,

        It is fun dreaming about how items that end up in stores like this were once used. For me, it is often like taking a trip down memory lane, seeing some items that my grandparents would have used at some point. This store is so nicely laid out that it is a pleasure to shop there.

        Hi FlourishAnyway,

        I once knew a woman who took old dressers, and the like, and painted the most beautiful embellishments onto them. They looked like a million bucks after she was finished!

        Now you've struck oil with me. I love old antique stores. I'm not into antique furniture, but I love old dishes, etc. My sister Ava loved antique furniture and had it throughout her house. I have never seen an antique store with a bar, how unique is that? Great photos, you captured the display beautifully.

        I would love to wander through this store as it has so many unique items. Your pictures are terrific, as always, but you do give us a good look at numerour aspects of this store.

        I hope this article posts as I have written comments on two other articles that have not shown up. I don't know if I do something wrong.

        This looks like a great store. I love rummaging around in places like this, though I'd probably spend far too much!

        It's so well arranged, isn't it? Like you say, at least there is room to move about and see everything.

        I often spend hours in such places or at car boot sales. Just imagining the history behind many of the objects is fascinating.

        Thanks for the tour, Peggy!

        What a treat. People like this are so creative. Stuff I would donate they paint white and dress up as shabby chic. I’d definitely buy it. So beautiful.

        Hi Liz,

        It was a pleasure to browse in that store. We came away with some homemade greeting cards on our first visit.
