Tour of Oops

I talk so much about Oops that I thought I would give you a little tour. The pictures are not that great of quality but I wasn't using my flash because people were starting to stare.
These tall faux mercury birds were only $6.25.
This is what it looks like. Just rows and rows of stuff.
I love these jars. I keep my upholstery tacks in them.

I loved the color of these clocks.

I've been debating about getting one of these for forever. They are only $6.25.
Concrete looking candlesticks.
Faux mercury pitchers.
They have been getting some furniture in and it is so cool.
I love this cream cabinet!!! If only I had room! It is only $365.00.
I love this color even though I don't have anything that color.
Rows and rows of lamps.
This cute little green vanity was only $66.00.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I didn't even take pictures of the floral section (huge), tools (boring) or the food (gross). They also have a section of area rugs. If I had a booth at a flea market in another area this is where I could get everything. But too many people know about it in this area. If you have a booth somewhere it would be worth the drive. Seriously!

I haven't been out there in FOREVER! It's probably been a year or more. It looks like they've got some good stuff, that white dish is gorgeous!

Thanks for sharing. I know how awkward it can be to take pictures in public. :)

Chris said...

Oh, how I LOVED this post. I found myself blowing pictures up so I could see objects in the background! You are sooo lucky to have this place. Debating over something for $6.95? Go buy that sucker!

Bella said...

Hi...i've been lurking on your blog admiring your home decor for awhile...I thought I'd say hi! I wish wish wish we had an oops here...all the stuff there looks awesome. I don't suppose you can order online from there, huh?!

Strawberry Blonde said...

Looks like a store that I would spend HOURS wandering around.

We have Old Time Pottery here that is nice, but I really loved the stuff at Oops.

Diane said...

Oh. my. gosh. I so wish we had one. I just bought an end table that tealish color...I don't have anything that color, but it looks good with black. :) I would die for that green clock.

Marie said...

Omg. If there was ever a post to make me cry...this was the one. HOLY MOLY!!!

Deidre said...

Oh, I wish we had something like that here. I love everything you took a picture of. You should definitely buy that soup server (sorry, can't think of what it's called). For $6.95, that is a GREAT deal. I bought one a few years ago (for way over that price) and we use it all winter when we make different soups.

Joanne Kennedy said...

Man oh man! Sure wish I had one of those stores in my areas. I even Googled it but we don't have anything like it.

Lucky girl you. You should buy some of that stuff and sell it on eBay or even your blog. I saw several things I would buy from you.

Hugs,
Joanne

duchess said...

I have no idea where you are but I seriously want to be there.

That place is heaven.

Katie said...

YEA for Oops furniture!

Amber said...

Oh HOW I WISH I had an Oops near me!!! There were some fabulous finds in your pictures! That furniture! To say nothing of the accessories. Thanks so much for the tour (despite causing all of us non-oops girls to be insanely jealous!) ;)

Candy said...

Thanks for the tour since I'll probably never see the store. Wow, I love it all!!! :)

Suzanne said...

Okay am I crazy or what...I want to come to Arkansas just for the Oops!?! I hope to talk my husband into coming next year when South Carolina plays Arkansas and then sneak in a trip to Oops. I am so jealous!! The place looks awesome!
Thanks for the tour!

Oh my goodness...I so WISH I could come shop there. Seriously, there is so much I see in those pictures that is similar to what I've been searching for. You are a lucky girl!

Kelly said...

It's been WAY too long since I've been there - I'm thinking a trip is coming up for me!

Laura said...

I have been visiting your blog for a week now and I love the Oops pieces you have, and now a great tour of the store! What a gem you have available! I wish I had something like this store near me, I would buy one of each item! Definitely go buy the item for $6.95! You have such a wonderful home!

Oh to be there! Are there other Oops around? no website, I think I checked before. I need an apothecary jar and a pineapple table lamp..I'm too far away!!

Leigh said...

seriously you should buy and sell o ebay-or like I do on my other blog, babys gone shopping.
Just from the pics, I am read to give you my shopping list!

I am so envious.

LINDA said...

What a cool place! We have Big Lots but they just basically have JUNK. Lucky you--economical redecorating at hand....

Kimba said...

Oh good grief! Part of me is glad I don't live near that store. I would get in major trouble! But the rest of me is so envious!

Mrs. Trixi said...

Oh, how I would love that store. I have been to one similar in Gulf Shores. I can't remember the name but it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Blessings,
Trixi

Tausha said...

Nicole said...

I am so jealous. I wish so bad we had one in Utah. I love the furniture. Can't wait to see what you do with your stamp set. I have loved mine.

My Beautiful Mess..... said...

What a great place!! I wish we had one here. Thank you for sharing :) If I get that way I will make it a must to stop in and take a peek.

Jennifer said...

I soooo wish we had one near here! Thanks for sharing though! :)

Cindy said...

Stop by and visit when you can. Thanks for sharing!

Darlene said...

I would love a store like Oops. I could roam around for hours and hours and the prices....to die for!! Thanks for taking us on a tour.

Diane said...

Hey friend! I have a blog post just for you, even though I was terrified of posting pictures so early on in my process. :)

Hannah said...

Like everyone else - I'm envious. We don't have anything like that in upstate NY.

Blanca said...

I would definitely be in trouble if I had one of those in my area. Thanks for the tour.

emily said...

uhhh....okay. This place makes me so happy. Tell me it's not in Arkansas. Tell me it is in North Carolina. I want to go there. I want to live there. I want to be that small vanity for $66 dollars.

new every morning said...

I want an OOPS store! Do you know if this is a chain or is there only one? Are there any on the east coast? I'm SO jealous!

I want one of those green clocks ... adorable.

Thanks for the virtual tour.

JoAnne said...

I agree with all the other commenters - I'm so jealous. You should buy some that stuff and sell it online. I have a list made already and at the top is one of those green clocks. LOL Smiles, JoAnne

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Sigh~ This looks like my kind of place.

ceekay said...

I wish we had an Oops, but of course, my husband is thrilled we don't! I could send you my list though....and yah, don't sweat the small stuff...under $20...go for it! I don't know, but I think I may have to take a long trip with an empty truck soon!!

Katie said...

OH MY!!!! I am even MORE jealous of your Oops store than before when you just talked about it....OHHH!!!

Okay, so the $6 tureen...I love! And only $365 for that cabinet? Your kidding!!! And that little creamy tiered table off to the side of the green vanity is too cute!

I want my own Oops! I have even looked online for one...hahaha. I had no luck...I'm assuming it's a one-of-a-kind place. :o(

Oh...Mackinac Island is off the coast of Michigan.

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

Ok I looked online and can't find a website on this little gem of a store. Where is it located?? Somewhere on the east coast I hope!!

"J" said...

I loved the tour.....
LOVE IT!

I also love the blue dresser and the cream cabinet!!!! WOW!!! They have REALLY nice stuff!!!!!!!

JuJu and Family said...

I just saw this post and this place is amazing. I wish that there was a place like this out here in So Cal. I went out bright and early this morning, but I didn't find as much as I would have liked. Thanks again for all the beautiful ideas, pictures, and just a cool blog.
JuJu

J.Jones said...

This looks like an awesome place to get some cool items!!

Kim~"HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs" said...

Wow, what a great store...

Pamela said...

I was just getting ready to ask what Oops was and whola I found out and also what color your living room walls are!;) I would just die if we had an Oops! Again loving your blog!

Jennifer @ Our Cottage (in the Desert) said...

Hi, Shannon!!! I love your blog and thank you so much for sharing about Oops! I totally love this store and wish I lived near you so I could go shopping there all the time. We have a pretty great store near us called Real Deals and it is similar but does not have nearly as much stuff to check out. Your home is beautiful!!!
