Mill 77 Exchange just opened a new location in North Hampton, New Hampshire. The store was located in Newburyport, MA, and moved up the coast a few miles to tax-free NH!! I couldn’t wait to check it out when they opened this month.
I have been a Mill 77 fan and shopper since they had a smaller store in Amesbury, Massachusetts years ago…right around the time I started taking an interest in refinishing furniture and decorating. You know that time when Fixer Upper was just starting. The store was filled with all kinds of vintage and antique items.
Some of my very favorite decor pieces that you have seen me use over and over again were from Mill 77…that’s the sign of a good buy if you always grab it to decorate with!
I bought the cement bird and birdcage and the white candelabra way back at the beginning of my decorating journey… years before I had even dreamed about having my own website!
“At Mill 77 Exchange, we take our customer’s inspiration, combine that with our imagination and marry those to offer a wide variety of unique items, antiques, collectibles, new, recycled and custom built furniture and home décor. We have locations in Lynnfield, Dedham, Hingham and North Hampton, NH.”-mill 77
Take A Tour With Me
Even if you aren’t living in the New England area you will get some good decorating tips and see styles that are trending that you can bring into your own home. Let’s Go!
When you walk in the front door there is the most gorgeous wall of old cabinets…just look at all those drawers!! My first thoughts are that this place is enormous…and that my husband will be complaining about halfway through the store (he made it about 15 minutes and went to wait in the car!!!!)
One inexpensive way to add character to your home is with baskets.
You can use baskets for plants, to contain throw blankets, or find a basket with a low edge to use for fruit on your kitchen counter.
Mill 77 Furniture
One thing that caught my eye right away was the furniture that is available. I know so many people that have been waiting months for furniture to be back in stock at other retailers.
This sofa was soooo comfy and has a similar look and style as the Pottery Barn line of slipcovered sofas..except the Mill 77 one is $1,995 and Pottery Barn will run you $3K or more…
The chunky coffee table that was displayed with the sofa is gorgeous…if I only had a bigger living room!!
If you are looking for a solid wood dining table this is your place. There are quite a few styles and sizes of hand-made wood dining tables.
This butcher block table and the white chairs were stunning.
One really fun parts of wandering through the store is there are little “rooms” set up so even though the store is enourmous it feels cozy.
It’s was nice to see so many solid wood bureaus available…that’s one thing that is not easy to find anymore new.
A few other furniture pieces that I noticed were hutches, consoles, coffee tables, and cabinets.
Mill 77 Home Decor
There are thousands of home decor pieces at Mill 77…I am not exaggerating (yes, I exaggerate sometimes…but not now!!).
Wall art, mirrors, vases, planters, dishes, artificial plants, wreaths, lanterns, basically ALL the things you are looking for when accessorizing your home.
OK…unpopular opinion coming ‘atcha…I know the lady planter heads are super popular right now but they creep me out…I don’t know why!! There I said it, I hope we can still be friends…
One way to add instant character to your space is with a fun wall mirror.
I’m definitely coming back for this round rattan one!
Keep an eye out when you are at your thrift store for old mirrors, you can always paint an ugly frame!!
On the back wall of the store there is a wall of dishware. Very nice quality and I have a crush on the aqua blue!!
Even though Mill 77 has mostly new merchandise you will still find vintage items. There is a cool collection of postcards and glass bottles.
Here’s an idea I took away from Mill 77 that I plan on using.
Look at how pretty this tablescape looks with the ticking striped napkin running over the plate and the small wreath on top (the wreath is a candle ring!
Not only is there loads of artificial flowers and greenery to choose from…it’s all displayed so beautifully!
How cute is this wall of galvanized flower buckets??
Fun Fact…the next picture could have been taken in my studio…I really have a problem with hoarding artificial flowers!! But for normal people this is a great spot to pick up your seasonal artificial flowers.
What Did I Bring Home??
Well, there were so many things that I loved and that would fit nicely into my home but since the store is less than 5 miles from me I will be stopping in frequently.
On this trip, I purchases a small white textured vase (under $10) and a cement seashell sculpture (It’s actually a candleholder)
The vase reminded me of the Minka Pot from Anthroplogie.
It was a great first trip and I’m pretty psyched they moved their newest store so conveniently close to me!! You can check out my visit to their former location and a couple other vintage stores located in Newburyport, Mass. last Fall.
