Shopping In Jacksonville’s Riverside 5 Points Antiques

Recently Bob and I spent a few days in the Jacksonville, Florida area. We really enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of the residents and the pride everyone has in their lovely beach area. And then while at lunch, someone told us about the historic Riverside area located near the Cummer Museum. We arrived a bit late to begin a museum tour, but wait….over there and one block up or so…there was Park Street!!
(Some of us might call it “The Street of Dreams” for those who love to go junkin’!

Remembering we were late getting into the area, I realized that we had to move fast to see this street…yeah, and all the dreamy decor items inside these shops. How about these rooster lamps and check out that price for 2 tall brass lamps…I was tempted. Can’t say that Bob was as he reminded me that we had flown this time. Look at the artwork in these old roosters. I’m imagining Debbiedoos about now, if she had found them….would they be painted with ORB now? :)

Dishes and crochet always catch my eye…don’t they grab your attention, too? And those beautiful old jello molds really bring back memories of our mothers and grandmothers. And then my eyes saw a gorgeous pattern of Frankoma pottery, that I have never seen. Look at the uniqueness of it in the light color.

Last but certainly not least is this beautiful train flower pot, possibly a florist sent it filled with ivy when a new baby boy was born…it appears to be quite old, but in lovely condition.

Bob and I really appreciated visiting with Bill Martin, the owner, of 5 Points Antiques and he graciously agreed to allow me to move through snapping away. Hope you get to the “Historic Riverside” and go to 1046 Park Street, Jacksonville, Florida. Please tell them Helen told you about his great shop filled with memorable items. The number is 904-638-7054… Definitely worth a visit.

    • Thanks for shopping with me, Liz! Ha! I can tell by reading your blog, just how much fun we would have there. Hope my blogger friends drop over your way to see what we are talking about. Thanks again! Helen

      • Helen, you are too kind! Thanks for coming by Quirky Vistas and encouraging others to do the same. So sweet! One of my best friends is moving to Fernandina Beach which is near Jacksonville, and she is learning all about the area and what’s good to do up there. I’ll have to let her know about this! She and her husband love to go antiquing. Thanks!

        • Liz, it’s terrific to see you back again today. Be sure to tell her about St. Simons Island, Georgia. It has quite a history. And some fun shopping, too. Not to mention the beach! I’ll have another review up soon for another place in Riverside. Stay tuned, please! Thanks, Helen

  2. Hi Helen! So sweet of yout o think of me and my roo’s! I actually have that rooster copper mold, same exact. How funny. Have a fabulous weekend. Looked like a fun trip.

    • Debbie, you were first one I thought of the second I saw those rooster lamps…well, after I knew there was no way to get them home that time. My mother had a set of those copper molds, too. BTW, J’ville is just about an hour South of St. Simons Island if you go there. Thanks for all you do for us in Blogland! Helen

  3. Helen, you and Bob are having just too much fun! LOL It looks like you guys had a fantastic outing and shopping trip. Great finds! The train flower pot is just so pretty and original!
    Have a great weekend!

    • Maria, we did have a good trip shopping, beach hunting, etc. Stay tuned…there’s more shopping to be posted soon. Glad you liked the train pot…it’s perfect for a boy of any age, I think. Thanks again for introducing us to Wanda. Helen
