TOS Travels: Antiquing Jackson, MS

On a recent trip to the South, I passed through Jackson, Mississippi. I have to be honest; I didn’t expect much of the town.  But what I discovered was a beautifully restored downtown (Jackson is the capital of Mississippi), full of life, with good eats and great antiques.

There are several good shops with vintage and antique furniture and collectibles,  many centered around Old Canton Road.

Check out my top 5 pieces from my favorite French antiquities specialists at M. Nichols Collection.  (Apologies for the dark photos – photographing in-store is tricky!):

 {Louis XVI trumeau}

{a lovely settee}

{a 6-foot+ tall stunner – I’m referring to the mirror, not the guy!}

{Louis XVI daybed}

{and the pièce de résistance – a Louis XVI vitrine.  i’d use it as a jewelry display case!}

I have to say, Mississippi is jam-packed with antiques.  If you’re in the market, and fancy some travel, I recommend you head down.  Nothing is a steal, but the selection is remarkable.  We stopped in Vicksburg, Natchez and the Biloxi/Gulfport area, as well – all had good finds, but I would especially recommend Natchez.
