HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY & Happy 50th Birthday, Laurie!

Look at the party favor I was given from my girlfriend Laurie Ann Ray's 50th birthday party! Wow! It's spectacular as was the surprise party held at the Prado in Balboa Park. Laurie made a grand entrance in a horse-drawn Cinderella carriage and awaiting her arrival were 60 or so of her friends and family. It was a fabulous party and I was delighted to have been included in the celebration of Laurie turning the big five - O !

This arrangement is now adorning Cottage Antiques' entrance. Our customers are loving it!


We have Barbola's galore!

We have some great English Barbola's from the 20s and 30s. Wow! They are not easy to find so I'm pretty thrilled to offer them to our customers. They're so beautiful. I used to go to England for them but now I am fortunate to have a friend who travels to visit family and brings me Barbola mirrors from time to time. I also was pleased to get a wonderful collection from a friend who was downsizing.
