Three remaining stops on my Midland day shopping for antiques, collectibles, repurposed and repainted furniture included Found Furnishings, Old Town Tiques and Antiques by Joseph. Be sure to check out the other Midland shops (links).
Found Furnishings is located at 428 Andrews Highway – a short walk and a few doors north of The Cat’s Meow in a strip mall on Andrews Highway. Found is a bit different than the other antiques shops in Midland because Found carries quirky, unusual, repurposed and painted furniture.
“We are always, always on the hunt for more dressers because we can’t keep them in.” Owner Jeannie Eads said. “Most of the time these dressers are repurposed for changing tables and television entertainment centers.” The 20 to 40 year old age shoppers like the quality of the vintage and antique furniture, but prefer repainted furniture that has been upcycled for a modern twist.

Found Furnishings: Eclectic mix of Repainted Furniture, Repurposed
“We don’t have a lot of shops like this in Midland.” Jeannie said they try to set themselves apart at Found Furnishings and offer fun and quirky items for sale. The store is stocked with a lot of mid century modern furniture and quirky items.
Found Furnishings is an eclectic mix of custom, upcycled, repainted furniture and repurposed pieces. They offer industrial and architechural, mid-century modern, upcycled, re-loved and vintage furniture.

Old Town Tiques: Repainted Furniture, Old and New, Boutique Items
The next stop for Midland day shopping was Old Town Tiques and this quaint little shop is located one block over and across the street from Found Furnishings at 306 Secor Street. Sabrina Edwards owns Old Town Tiques and she has 35 vendors who keep their booths stocked so the merchandise changes on a daily basis with a lot of repainted furniture that has been upcycled.
This shop has a little bit of everything – old and new, repurposed and repainted furniture. Items include antiques, new items, refurbished items, crosses, repainted furniture, chairs, repainted old shutters, doors, corbels, old truck door, jewelry, tables, repainted desks, essential oils.
