Shop at The Rink

This post is for all of my local friends.  Looking for a unique gift or accent for your home?  Have I got the place for you!  


The Rink Gallery is located on 32nd and Rockwell in Bethany.  It's actually just a few blocks from the house I grew up in and literally used to be an ice skating rink.  I think the old Zamboni is still in there somewhere!  They have divided the space into individual booth areas which have such an interesting mix eclectic, vintage, and antique goods, furniture, and clothing.


My parents rent booth space here.  Mom is the master shopper and Dad is the master fixer/painter/cleaner-upper of whatever she finds.  Here are a few pictures of their booth:

All of the grandchildren call her "Bree."  Her name was going to be "Grammy", but when my son tried to say that it somehow sounded like Bree.  She loved it so much better than Grammy, so the name stuck.


 My dad PAINTED that brick floor-I think it adds such character to their space.


They have a little bit of everything in their booth.  Just look for the brick floor straight down the middle of the building.


A few other spaces throughout the building that I thought were interesting:










Charming memorabilia...


Can't you just see these chairs re-done in a fabulous print?  I like the oval clock on the table, too.


And a few unique items:










I saved the best for last...metal, green, drawers...love!


The Rink is open every day from 10 am-6 pm, Thursdays until 8 pm with live entertainment from 5-7pm, and Sundays from 12-6 pm.
