Pinterest is starting to give me a serious design identity crisis. I’ve been looking into mantels to add a some of that real grown-up feel to my place, you know, because I’m adulting now. It’s just a sea of white. Yes, I get it – white is super chic, white is a blank slate, blah, blah, blah.. White is boring. I needed something more. I will not conform to you, Apartment Therapy!
It took a good bit of exasperated searching and mainlining of caffeine, but I finally came across a picture of an earthy colored dark mantel. I mean an earth tone, marble mantel.
These pictures took me back to Cruel Intentions where they show the first shot of Kathryn’s bedroom. I remember seeing it and gasping out loud to no one in particular. It was so chic, I don’t feel cool enough for it. That room has always been my design Everest.
Having left NYC two months ago, I now have the financial ability to buy things and make it happen. I overheard some talk of mantels going on sale today at OGT. Nothing too concrete as far as I’d gathered, so I took the initiative (mostly because mantels are my one and only mission at the moment) and asked if it was possible to get some dark preferably brown colored mantels at the forefront of said sale. BAM!
HALF. OFF. MANTELS.
I’m not exactly sure how I made it happen, but I don’t really care. I’m running down in a bit to check out what they’ve got and making it happen before I leave work today. I may go back down tomorrow and take you all with me on Facebook Live. I’ve found two on the site that I really dig – let me know your thoughts.
Ugh, these are so perfect.
You need to check this sale out. If you’re in Pennsylvania (or anywhere close, honestly), I highly suggest taking the drive out to Scranton. There’s so much more in the warehouses than is posted online. Like waaaay more. Like Overwhelmed Intern too much.
Welcome Spring 2017 with Olde Good Things by attending these outdoor shows where we are set up this weekend.

Renningers is celebrating 32 years of Extravaganza events. On 117 acres of scenic rolling land in beautiful Lake County, the heart of Central Florida, is Renninger’s Twin Markets in Mt. Dora. This show houses a wide variety of dealers from produce stands, clothing shops, and oddity vendors, to high quality antiques and collectibles. We actually showcased our unique architectural and altered antiques last month as well.
Open Friday February 17th – Sunday February 19th 8am – 5PM
Admission Friday $10, Saturday $6. Sunday $4 or get a 3-Day pass for $15.

We are located at booth 2067.
When the producers for GEICO needed to find an interesting antique store to film their latest 30 second commercial, they decided Olde Good Things was the place to go. In early fall 2016, they contacted us and made their request. We thought it was a fun idea, and the next thing we knew they brought in their huge crew and took over the whole place for an entire day. For a 30 second commercial it was quite a to-do. Here’s a mother and daughter inspecting our antique door knobs. You can see the same wares today at our 10,000 square foot location where this was filmed, but sadly not the cuckcoo clock that they brought in with remote controls and voice-over actors. Nice job GEICO and thanks for the fun moment at Olde Good Things.
