MCM Love: Attic Treasures on Commercial Drive
The last time we were in Vancouver we took a little time to wander and check out some different shops… from Thrift Stores to a Mid-Century Modern specialty boutique.

As you step through the door you are greeted with MCM eye candy that doesn’t quit!
From George Nelson inspired starburst clocks, retro table-top fans, to whimsical kitchen pieces like this apple canister set…
And lighting, lighting, lighting galore.
Look at all those fibreglass drum shades. And the fab pendants. We could easily have brought the plain white one on the far right home with us!
How about that funky dome shaped stereo? I didn’t investigate, but I think it’s a Bradford radio/record player. Doesn’t it remind you of a space ship?
As you turn the corner you are drawn in deeper by the collection of furniture before you.
Look at this wall-to-wall mix of teak and leather!
Seriously. Everywhere I looked, I darted off to!
It was just way too hard to stay focused on one thing… And did I mention the lighting? Oh, right. I did.
Oooo, and I love this coffee service. Hhhhh.
What’s a girl to do? I just had to touch 😉
The colour and grain in this teak ice bucket was so beautiful… but it didn’t come home with me.
And then there was this wall of pottery vases. Temptation, much! Oh, I was so dying to touch…
But did dare?
Of course! I couldn’t resist!
Being in this store was like being in the middle of a Mid-Century exhibit, only better because we could touch! And even better, because we could buy any piece we wanted to (assuming money was no object)!
For this visit we were just happy to have made the discovery.
Since then, I’ve had a chance to soak this store in. Now I can’t wait to return. Who knows what we’ll discover next time? Maybe our home will become the new home of a fabulous treasure we find inside 🙂
Have you been to Attic Treasures? If you don’t live nearby, do you have a favorite MCM spot to shop?
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
