Wonderful Wood Antiques at The Snivling Sibbling

The Snivling Sibbling storefront

Last weekend while wondering around Eagle Rock, I discovered a wonderful antique store called The Snivling Sibbling.  The hubby and I were out and about, and decided to head down to Eagle Rock to find a little lunch joint. When we were done we did a little exploring by foot. Of course I have driven by The Snivling Sibbling many times and have been curious, so I was excited to walk in and see what this shop was all about. Low and behold, it was filled with treasures!

When we first arrived, we were greeted by small sampling of what the store has to offer, lining the sidewalk out front. Something about the entrance also reminded me of the charming old antique stores you might find on a road trip through the small towns of West Virginia.

The shop is not big in size, but it is packed with wonderful antique and vintage furniture, all very reasonably priced and in fantastic condition.

some treasures at the front of the store

You can find everything from chairs, to tables, dressers, mirrors, and bookshelves. There is even this beautiful art deco bed headboard and foot board (which I definitely would have snatched up if we had had a full sized bed in the house anywhere).

Delightful accessories have homes all around the shop, peppered over the furniture until someone joyfully takes them home.

And when you go, don’t forget to look up! Hanging from the ceiling are accessories, furniture, and art, all worthy of snatching up.

In fact we took this chair home, which we found hanging up above. It is the perfect antique addition to balance out some of the more modern aspects of our living room, and looks great in front of our Bachelder fireplace. This chair is probably more similar to the age of our home than most of the furniture we’ve decorated with, and I feel like it brings a bit of nostalgia into our sitting area.

The shop was also filled with beautiful mirrors. Some were hanging on the wall, others on the floor propped up against something else. I fully plan to go back for one as we continue decorating our home.

Jeff, the store’s owner and operator who we met while we were there, had just gotten a few new antiques in and I found his team out back polishing and preparing them for sale.

I fell in love with this chair, being polished up out back.

Before we left, we decided to also pick up this end table. By its original design, it was probably meant for a sitting room. (The little door on the front has a small cigar rack built into the inside.) But I decided to use it in the bedroom. It has a beautiful femininity to it in the wood carving design and the top border, but the rich warm wood makes it elegant and mature.

another treasure we delightful snagged, now our bedside table

And again, much like the chair, this end table is about the same vintage as the house, so it keeps with the charm of all the lovely vintage details we love so much about our house.

What’s your favorite antique store find? Do you have a favorite antique store in the LA area that I should go check out?
