While vacationing at my parents beach home, I almost always try and make time to drive into Fairhope. It's just one of those quaint little towns that offer so much. On this day, as my mother and I drove into Fairhope we happened onto a business called Pat Norton Interiors and Architechural Consignment . Lucky for us! Pat Norton's IA@C is located just off of Highway 98 at 8081 Twin Beech Rd . The staff both knowledgeable and friendly, willing to help you find that perfect piece for your home. Which is what I love about architectural finds, they really personalize a space and can add instant charm and history. It often comes with a story.
They specialize in all kinds of old and new architectural items for your home. Just look at what they carry in their shop...
They have doors, windows, shutters,
(Love the shutters made into a dining table)
(I really wanted the Gothic door, it came off of a local college...and was sold. :( )
....columns, mantels, corbels,
wrought iron, fountains, fancy basins, tables
(I really wanted this one and the price was really right)
and chairs, cabinets, dressers,
(They have a man who custom creates one of a kind dressers and cabinets from found items...)
(This cabinet below was created from old bead board, an old bed, etc.)
(These below are all made from found objects....antlers, an urn and an old pottery jar)
paintings, banisters, wicker furniture, outdoor furniture, and so much more.
($1.00 each per tile. Imagine the projects to do with these!)
I heart this vintage prescription case $35.00...
I really wanted to put these puppies under my arm and walk out the door. Not only to they look like my (three) puppies, but they are also my favorite color...Be still my heart....
LOVE. Real LOVE.
You can visit Pat Norton's too.....and I suggest you too.
Hours: Monday- Saturday 10-5, closed on Sunday.
