From Hattiesburg: Go north on hwy 49. Just outside of Florence, MS. you will pass Magnolia & Hwy. 49 Flea Markets on your left. The brick building just past the Flea Markets on your left is Dwellings. You will have to go to the next little "turn left" area to come back to Dwellings
This Fire King casserole dish and separate underplate is a rare find.
Zoom in for details.
If you are a collector of FK, we have a small table of Fire King.
We are working on this area daily.
This entire vintage wooden tray's design is made from actual butterfly wings!
I saw another one similar in West Monroe and our price is better!
When "picking" an old warehouse recently, I found this OLD blackboard nailed to the wall.
Speaking of "pickers"... American Pickers has NOTHING on us...
Our pickers find the most unusual, fun stuff!
Not sure why, but I've always been fascinated with "little" items.
Silver plate has been named one of the top ten collectibles for 2012.
One of the most sought after top ten is Cow creamers.
We have a wide array of pressed glassware, some cut and colored.
Decorating Tip: Use what you have! Old mismatched granite ware lids are displayed on a small shelf which is displayed within an old window frame! This works well for old china lids also. How about buying a piece of board and putting it into the old frame and spraying it with chalkboard paint? This window is its original color. I have 4 more paned windows right now...two are in very good condition, and two are a little tattered!
Vintage lures are displayed in our case and on old barn wood..
All things Rooster and Chicken!!
Super duper old wagon wheel...we have other parts from this wagon also.
For the tobacco tins and boxes collector...

We have the answer to all your gift needs...so much to show... I will just give you a snapshot of some things that might interest you. Small glass containers are perfect for "wrappers" for your baked goods....plan to spend $5-$10 on a vintage piece.
We have lots of pretty glassware..this is one small section.
Lanterns are $25.00 and are the most versatile of decorations...use them year-round.
This vintage lighted secretary is so pretty...
leave it natural or paint it...either way, you will love it.
It has glass shelves and a drawer in addition to the writing surface. Price: $200.00
Vintage books fashioned into re-purposed table decorations. Several have holes that hold votive holders. If you would like one with pictures of your family on front...just let me know. Special orders for the ones with pictures are $20...others range from $9 to $15.00.
Metal buggy for all your decorating needs...this is a large item and would hold lots of pumpkins, pots of flowers or serve as an outside Christmas container.
I re-purposed this old bird feeder as a little tabletop log cabin. The red fence goes all the way around and there are bottle brush trees and a wreath over the front door. Price: $22....cute for bird lovers.
Vintage wood burned and painted blanket chest is waiting on a new home. I think it would be a great window bench or coffee table. Chests like these were usually flat, but bun feet or square feet would look wonderful and give her just the lift she needs. Price: $150.00.
How fun is this set? Old wooden spools fashioned into a playroom table and stools! Wonderful colors...price: $65.00.
On Saturday and Sunday, I will be available to make your holiday bows.
Call me for details: 601 966-7305
Price: $3.00 per bow
Come by and have some coffee and shop. At first I was so excited, that I followed everyone around and talked entirely too much...I promise I will leave you to shop until your heart's content! Merry Christmas!
Hope your days are merry and bright,

This afternoon, in a few down minutes, we assembled an island for my kitchen using an old barn gate and a metal bottom from a work bench. I needed a very small "island-ette" for the center of the kitchen. I have no counter space by the refrigerator and I constantly have to walk back and forth taking items from the refrigerator when I am cooking. This solves the problem. The hardest part was picking from all our wood stash!
The old metal bottom was a work bench and we just removed the metal top and replaced it with the barn wood. It's very sturdy and I put two hooks at the ends so that I have a place to hand dish towels, etc. The bottom is sprayed with Rustoleum Hammered Brown.
The island measures 22 inches wide and 42 inches in length. It fits perfectly! After cleaning, waxing and polyurethane, I can't wait to use it!
Casters aid in moving and there is a lever that raises the legs so the casters can roll! This is one service we offer at Dwellings Refined...you find the bottom of your choice and we'll make you a top!
Our store hours have changed since we are finally moved in and somewhat settled:
Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m. 'til 5 p.m.
Sunday from 1 p.m. 'til 5 p.m.
We are closed Monday and Tuesday.
We are located between Donna's #6 Produce and Magnolia Flea Market on Hwy. 49 South...on the right just past Jerry's Fish House (which is on the left.) When you pass Donna's turn on your blinker...or you will miss us! We are the little brick building. There is a flashing sign!!

Crystal, milk glass and depression glass are the ingredients for a light, shimmery table.
I had this little old fashioned tree "planted" in an old brown crock...
I love the textures of Indian baskets.
I am a nut about bowls...all sizes and types.
Tools now hang on our barn wood wall. They look like pieces of art.
Hand-made crosses by my friend Wanda Pearson have a place of honor in our shop.
There is nothing more endearing than Blue Willow china.
This beautiful handcrafted antique door coffee table will be specially priced
My son tried his hand making a coffee table from an old painted door.
Last but certainly not least is MY grand old hutch!

Very little has been purchased. We re-purposed and re-used what was on hand. That's the whole point of the shop...to give creative outlet to use what you already have.
This is our Welcome table. Love the feather candle rings!
I recently purchased this old chest and it's looking for a new home. Notice the little jute topped felt stockings...they have the prettiest tassels attached.
I had to have just a little corner for some of my art. My bird's nests are there, too. You know the lore, don't you? If you have a nest in your Christmas tree, you new year will be filled with great things. Now who doesn't need great things?
Babyland....and our white Idea Tree is filled with ornaments you can make! I'll tell you how.
Pink and turquoise...simply sparkly and bright!
Five old doors are awaiting your decorative touch...this is my favorite. It still has the lock attached.
How would you like this beauty under your tree? (Well, at least BY the tree!)Now, I'll show you one more tonight...I've got to save something for tomorrow.
For the fisherman in your life!
More pictures tomorrow night!
We will open at 10 am this Saturday. We hope you will join us then!
