Antiques Roadshow Week: Richmond Love

Antiques roadshow wasn’t the only thing we did in Richmond last Saturday. We also grabbed some Dixie Donuts on our way to the taping and then after, we hit up our fave BBQ place, Buz and Ned’s. We also stopped in at The Decorating Outlet, which carries Shades of Light remnants and seconds. I was looking for a rug for the office, but we haven’t found one yet. That said, I may be getting ready to order another one online (cross your fingers it’a a good choice this time). We capped off our day with a trip to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden for a little outside time. It was the perfect day for it: overcast and not too hot.

And that’s all the words you get for today! Yesterday’s post was so explain-y, I thought we could all use a little break before tomorrow’s post: an interview with Matthew Quinn of Quinn’s Auction Galleries! He’s got an interesting story, a big heart and a passion for serving his customers. You won’t want to miss this one.

So there you have it. Have you ever been to Richmond? What did we miss?

  1. As a native Richmonder, Buz and Ned's is simply wonderful!
    In the mood for pizza? Bottom's Up (Dock Street) is a must for a one slice meal with unique toppings. Something more in a New York style? Try Capriccio's on West Broad. Frank will even make a half white sauce and a half red sauce pie. That is hard to find.
    Big Al's Sports Grill on Cox Rd. has a killer hamburger. Just keep in mind what sports might be on all the TVs.
    Also on Broad near Cox is Joey's Hotdogs. Killer Chili!
    I'm a huge fan of local places. Richmond has a great variety. I could go on and on….

  2. That's a super list! And I'm a big fan of chili dogs. If you ever make it up this way, Vienna Inn is the place to be. We love local spots and eschew chains as much as we can. I'll add all of these to my list. Lucky we only live two hours away since I think it might take more than one trip. Thanks so much for all the fantastic tips.

  3. Thanks for sharing your treasures and your experience with Roadshow. It sounds like so much fun. Nice to know that you're skilled at picking out the good stuff, too.

    I'm so far behind in my blog reading, I didn't get to offer my Richmond picks, which included Lewis Ginter and Agecroft Hall. I wanted to recommend some of my very favorite thrift shops, too, but they are gone, unfortunately. This whole series about Roadshow made me realize how much I miss Richmond. Sounds like a road trip is in order. I'll let you know if I discover any great thrifting while I'm there!

  4. I didn't know you had lived in Richmond. I highly recommend taking a little day trip as I've been told the renaissance in some of the formerly more borderline neighborhoods is pretty awesome. So many unique local spots popping up in the place of urban blight!
