One thing we're known for are our beds. We doll them up and fluff them with pillows and antique quilts. This particular bed is an iron bed, aged and rusted to perfection. We decided to leave it just as we found it - so appealing!
We tweaked our store today, adding our latest finds and redoing all of the displays.
I found this great plateau with original chippy paint.
These are the best arched French windows - Oo-la-la!
I snapped a few more images as we've added a lot of new treasures to the mix. Monday night and all day Tuesday, Bob, Debbi and I worked like dogs planning, rearranging, moving furniture, hanging pictures, frames and chandeliers. We've sold a lot of furniture this past couple of weeks and it always makes the store change.
Here's a sweet Victorian scrapbook, original and in great shape. I love the old lithos and the one here is in beautiful condition.
The old lighting is the best, nothing like it and these are big and fabulous! Vintage sconces tend to be small and to acquire a pair of fine French sconces like these is a true find. They have the original glass shades and large crystal spears - ooh la la!
This transom window from the late 1800s looks incredible on the wall. The pale French blue original paint couldn't be more perfect for the look so many of our customers are looking for today. We're very happy to be able to offer it for sale in our store.
The green toleware platter looks so great on the green buffet.
We just got this vintage chalkware statue of a girl with basket and it's perfect for displaying our Caspari napkins.
I never tire of the real cottage pieces, the ones with the original chippy paint, which complements any cottage country or French cottage look, camps and bungalow. This is a drop-leaf gateleg, could be slipped in behind a sofa, in a hallway of entryway, it's so narrow when the leaves are down. We're going to have fun using this in displays until it finds a forever home.
Vintage Tole Tray - beautiful roses!
