Description and review of the 57th Street Antiques & Design Center located on 57th Street between H and J Streets in East Sacramento.
A friend and I recently stopped at Urban 57 Home Décor and Interior Design at 56th and H Streets as she was looking for window treatment ideas. We made the rounds of the shop, admiring the furniture and accessories on display. A striking lighting fixture in particular caught her eye. We inquired as to the price, and she took a picture for future reference.
Before we left my friend had also made an in-home consultation appointment with a designer who specializes in window coverings.

57th Street Antiques & Design Center
Our plan was to have lunch afterwards, so I suggested we stop at Evan’s Kitchen which is located nearby in the 57th Street Antiques & Design Center. As I anticipated, parking was not a problem as the parking lot for customers of the 57th Street Antiques and Design Center is good-sized.
Evan’s Kitchen was still serving breakfast – and I was sorely tempted – but we both decided to order sandwiches from the lunch menu. You really can’t go wrong at Evan’s Kitchen. My friend had a Tuna Melt and I ordered the Grilled Chicken. Both sandwiches were served with French fries.
My friend checked out the dessert menu and noticed the Fresh Baked Cookie Sundae. Fresh baked cookies sounded good to her so she asked if she could have the fresh baked cookie without the ice cream. The waiter noted that it would take a certain amount of time – but the hot out-of-the oven chocolate chip cookies were judged worth it.

Fifth-Seventh Street Antique Mall
After a leisurely lunch, we wandered around the Fifty-Seventh Street Antique Mall. The Fifty-Seventh Street Antique Mall is huge, with over 70 dealers under one roof.
We took our time checking out the large selection of goods. You name it and you will find it there – vintage clothing, artwork, collectibles, costume and fine jewelry, dishes, glassware, furniture, silverware, pottery, etc.
From time to time we pointed out to each other items we remembered from our childhoods.
I would venture to say that the selection of goods at the Fifty-Seventh Street Antique Mall is a combination of antique and “old”, and the prices in some instances seemed reasonable, and in other instances a tad high.
As it turns out, my friend needed to replace a broken glass lid for a CorningWare baking dish. I had earlier spotted a number of CorningWare sets and individual glass lids so she scored the size she needed. She was also happy to find a gift for a friend who collects Disney.
Afterwards, we stopped by and checked out several other shops in the 57th Street Antiques & Design Center including Amorini Antiques, The Ruralist, Picket Fence Antiques, and The Lighting Palace – which both sells and repairs lighting fixtures.
All in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. If you are looking for something in particular you may want to stop by the shops in the complex from time to time as the inventory is constantly changing as items are sold and new items are added.
