Utah Local: Home Again

I've been debating starting this new feature called "Utah Local", but I've wanted to do it for some time now. I know that many of my readers (at least many of the ones who comment--smile) don't live in Utah. But I do want to share great local places with family and friends who do live here and help unique places stay in business so I can continue to enjoy them. So I'll be posting a new Utah Local here once a week or so.

Today is a great day to start this since I don't feel well and this is an easy post. I first heard about Home Again in Midvale from Ann Marie's blog. She is one of the consignment contributors to this interesting consignment shop. I hadn't heard of it before, but last month after reading about it, I was driving to Gardner Village and spotted it. Home Again is just around the corner from there and I was excited to see it in person and I stopped inside for a fun visit.
They have a nice mix of antiques, unique home decor, a few crafts and some refinished/refurbished furniture and there are things in all price ranges...really!

I bought this plaque for a year-round decoration, these pumpkins for a new Thanksgiving decoration, and the cute cookie jar which I washed, filled with cookies and gave to a friend as a gift. At first I was thinking that I wish I could live next door to Home Again, but then decided it's a lucky thing I don't cuz I'd be buying things all the time. By the way, there's another store in Sugarhouse, but I haven't been to that one. This is one store I'll continue to shop at since I love unique finds and they've been around for 10 years so I doubt they'll be closing their doors (like so many of my old favorites have done).


  1. Looks like a great store! may have to check it out sometime :)

  2. Whoo-hoo!! I am so glad you stopped by!
    I seriously go once a week... not just to see what is still there.. but also because they have new stuff that much!!

    You got some cute stuff! I know what you mean.. and it's even worse for me because I can use my purchases as credit.

    The sugar house store is fun too! But the midvale one is close to me.. so I prefer to go there.

    Glad you had fun shopping! ~ Thanks for the shout out! --Your great!

  3. I forgot to say.. did you see the benches made from beds? I want one bad!! I had the hubby go with me to see how to do it...

  4. did I miss that you live in Utah? SO DO I! But I live wayyy North.

    I've never heard of this store but it sounds awesome! I think this would be a great feature for your blog!

  5. I think you should have a feature with local items/stores, etc! With as many Utah readers of blogs, it would be a hit! I've been introduced to so many fun places through features like these. I need to stop by this store. Every time I'm at Gardner Village, I'm with my girls and don't dare enter those little shops! :)

  6. I think this would be a great feature! I have never heard of this store. Now I know all about it because of you! Cute things you bought, especially the plaque. I like to think it's not too late for me!

  7. The name of this place would be enough to get me in the doors! I would love to have a store like this in our town.

  8. I've driven by this place many times but never stopped in. Thanks for the review! I actually live nearby the store--we must be almost neighbors!
