Relative newcomer antiques haven Georgia Brown Home on West Alabama is closing its doors just 19 months after it opened. Owner Shane Brown and wife Kristine, of the Big Daddy’s Antiques empire which includes Diane Keaton as a client, are relocating the inventory to Round Top, Texas.

The Browns are longtime frequenters of the Round Top antique shows — they even own a few charming cottages in the area. No doubt the stunning Georgia Brown inventory will find happy homes with some of the thousands of treasure hunters that visit Texas’s antiques Mecca each spring and fall.

Beginning Saturday, March 18, you can find Georgia Brown Home at Paul Michael Company, 1542 Highway 237. Their Big Daddy’s Antiques/Georgia Brown Home locations in Aspen, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles will remain open.

We stopped in to the old location on the West Alabama and Edloe today — where a massive leasing sign is now posted out front — as the Georgia Brown folks were packing up trucks with the store’s former contents. We snapped pics of a few great finds that will be heading to Round Top (the see photo gallery above this story). The building should lease quickly given the prime Upper Kirby location — a stone’s throw away from Tiny Boxwood’s — and attractive changes the Browns made, like painting the exterior white with brown trim and adding boxwood landscaping.

The full statement from the Browns is below.

“Dear Friends of Georgia Brown Home in Houston,

Beginning this month, we are relocating to Round Top, Texas, where we look forward to seeing you at the Spring and Fall Antique Shows.

Visit us at Paul Michael Company, 1542 Highway 237. Early shopping begins March 18. 

If you miss us there,  please stop by our other destinations, Big Daddy’s Antiques and/or Georgia Brown Home:

Happy Spring and Good Antiquing,

Georgia Brown Home”
