MITCHELL ROAD ANTIQUE AND DESIGN CENTRE reopened Saturday 23rd July as posted previously, but sporting a new name. However! it's still the same great space it always was, although one could say it's much better now with new things happening every day. We are all very excited by the freedom we have now to do what's best for the Centre and its customers.

Apart from another generous feature of our items on Channel Nine "Top Design" show last Wed night, we have been moving furniture around, cleaning the kitchen area, toilets, scrubbing foyers, removing mountains of rubbish, paper and glass, and painting. Walls have also been taken out to create more stallholder space.

Our freshly painted building now sports a new red sign signalling to all the regulars that upstairs is open despite what previous wall graffiti may have said.

Filip is our master of art lighting. They're his steampunk style lamps in the previous post. He's also a painter by trade and here he is painting the outside a more subtle yellow. A job well done and very much appreciated Fil!

We have great things for sale at Mitchell Road Antique and Design Centre--something for everyone....
wine glass chandeliers even!

Quirky art deco lighting.

Fun and funny toys. The things they thought of!

Cheerful art glass.

Vintage leather clothing.

Hawaiian standard lamps, of all things!

Beautiful jewellery.

Antique plates and Oriental wares.

So come on in and have a look to see what we've done and take a good look at things you may not have seen before....we're open 7 days 10am-5pm--sometimes longer. Another issue the manager is toying with is opening a little longer for the after work and after beach customers.

MITCHELL ROAD ANTIQUE AND DESIGN GALLERY in Alexandria, Sydney is closed for a short time currently and will be reopening on Saturday 23rd July, 2011. That's just over a week away!! So not long to wait really.

It will reopen with a name change to "MITCHELL ROAD ANTIQUE AND DESIGN CENTRE". It will still be the great old edgy warehouse space brimming full of amazing inspiring things but will be bigger and better as time goes on. Plans are for extra stallholder spaces, greater ease of service, new paint jobs and reinvigorating some areas. Oh, and maybe even a coffee space soon---crossing fingers here!

Our service as always will stay down to earth and helpful.
We have:-
* payment via cash, EFT, Credit Card including American Express
* 4 week lay by
* 24 hour hold
* gift vouchers
* a stylist's hire service that is very popular.

Don't hesitate to ask for help though--it's easy to be overwhelmed in such a huge space of amazing items. Stallholders are often there topping up and reorganising so you can have a chat to them too.

At present some of our items are featured on Australia's new TV reality show, TOP DESIGN, running on Channel Nine at present Wednesday nights at 8pm, with the fabulous Jamie Durie as host. The link to the website states the place is closing--this is the Auction Centre being referred to, NOT the upstairs Antique and Design Gallery. Top Design last night featured some of our dealers' retro 50s/60s woven plastic cone chairs--also some relaxed style painted shabby chairs and tables.

So have a look at the photos for a tiny hint of what's there. Tell your friends and make a great day of coming in the weekend of our re-opening on 23rd/24th July for some rather different decor and fashion inspiration. We will be welcoming you.
