In a post earlier this week (Color Makes A Splash In Miami), I featured David Bromstad and his mention of favored hot spot to shop for fabulous furnishings in Miami - M.A.D.E. So for this weeks Thrifty Thursday, I decided to take a little trip down to Miami to check it out. Also known as Miami Antique and Design Expo, this find is situated just north of downtown Miami and just south of Miami Shores, on Biscayne Boulevard - also near the Design District. Its finished warehouse-like space is mostly vignette-set and packed full of vintage treasures from Bal Harbour Baroque to Mid Century Modern furnishings, lighting, books, mirrors, art and decor...
Find studs on furniture or in wall art...
From M.A.D.E. press: Best Vintage Design Store
"Run by brothers Robert and Carl Massello, M.A.D.E. features booths sponsored by a variety of local dealers, all of whom have favorite styles, designers, and periods, so you'll find bureaus rescued from the old Eden Roc Hotel next to Sixties Brown Jordan outdoor furniture next to Eames Eiffel-base plastic chairs."
I see an opportunity here...
To showcase even more fab finds down the aisle...
NOT stacked out as clutter - but featured as statements -
on a smaller scale like featured in yesterdays post in
As noted on design-sponge, M.A.D.E. is
"Unassuming and easy to miss while driving.But it is easily one of the best sourcesfor home furnishings in Miami."
And as I learned, it has successfully been
in this location for the past five years...

Thanks for the tip David and
Happy Thrifty Thursday everyone!
