Marcia Sherrill at Roland Antiques




Marcia Sherrill has long been a fixture here in Atlanta. Part of it has to do with her vivacious and madcap personality. But the other thing about Marcia is that she is accomplished in so many areas. For years she designed a gorgeous handbag line. She is also an interior designer, a writer, an antiques and vintage furniture dealer, and now a co-founder of a new website called Victory Over Divorce. She's a bit of a modern day version of Auntie Mame.

Sherrill now resides in New York, and I'm sure many of you are familiar with her articles and interviews that are featured on 1st dibs. Marcia recently emailed me with the news that she has partnered with some friends to open a new store called Marcia Sherrill at Roland Antiques. The shop is located at 74 East 11th St., and I do hope to visit it in person soon. (Or you can simply go to 1st dibs and see
her wares for yourself.)

Marcia emailed me a few photos of her shop, and I love the mix of pieces. It's the type of shop where you never know what you might find. And if you need a little levity, you might want to read Marcia's
monthly column for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles (available on their website). It's a hoot!

  4. Marcia is never dull! Auntie Mame is the perfect description -- and renaissance woman. I don't think I was aware of the Victory website :)

    Jennifer, speaking of style, the decorative work your sister did for you (shown in HB) is wonderful! So chic and personal. It was great to see you, Patricia, and Hollister on the same page.
