Queen of Hearts Blogger Brunch

Unique Finds

If you are from the Atlanta area, or a visitor, most likely you know about a local store called “Queen of Hearts” Antiques and Interiors.  Over the weekend I joined a group of Atlanta bloggers before opening hours for a lovely brunch there. We also had the opportunity to spend some time meeting the owner, the dealers, and had free time to shop.  I have to tell you there is something pretty exciting about shopping when a store is closed! 

Living in Georgia for 6 years, I heard so much about the Queen of Hearts, but never had the opportunity to make it there.  (It is over an hour away from where I live).  One of my dear friends that lives in Minnesota said I had to check it out – that I would love it there.  Boy did I!  Shopping in this store is like being a kid in a candy store.  It has it all, and not to mention, everyone is so friendly! 

Upon arriving we were treated to a brunch and given “Queen of Hearts” Swag Bags with goodies from the dealers.

I love how they personalized all of the bags with a painted initial letter.  It truly made me feel extra special that they would take the time to do that for us. 

Before peeking inside the Alpharetta store, I want to tell you a little history about Queen of Hearts.  Stacey Anderson and her husband, Jim, currently own three stores and opened doors to their first store in Alpharetta in 1998.  They wanted to create a one-stop shop for those wanting to update their interiors with unique finds including antiques and new on-trend items for the home.  They have a very friendly staff and it seems that Stacey and Jim’s “hands on approach” really creates a desirable place to work, shop, and be a merchant dealer.  It seemed to me as though they are a family and treat their customers as though they are part of the family too.  I noticed this immediately… they are a close knit group. 

Every aisle in the store is uniquely named after streets in Charleston, South Carolina.  As we peruse down Broad Street and over to  Bull Street let’s take a peek here first, shall we?…

I am always blown away by the creativity of the dealers and

how they merchandise their spaces.

The dealer for this space has two booths, Sassy & StashDon’t you just love the “Stash” sign?

Here’s another creative greeting from Under The Garden Gate.

I had the cutest picture of the dealer and her beautiful pillows, however, her eyes were closed in the picture.  Bummer! 

I sure know I wouldn’t want my picture shown with my eyes closed.  🙂

I am going to show you more pictures to give you an idea of what you will find

when you step inside.

This is just a glimpse of what I saw!  I am telling you there is talented dealer after dealer underneath one roof. 

I tried to give you links so you can visit the dealers Facebook pages or sites that I mentioned here.  For those I do not have links for, you will have to visit the Alpharetta, Queen of Hearts, to see it live.  You won’t be disappointed.

Currently Queen of Hearts is located in Alpharetta, Marietta, and Buford.  I am excited to check out the other locations as soon as I am able.

I want to thank Queen of Hearts for inviting me to this special event, and the sweet dealers that provided the thoughtful swag bags.
