A treehouse in Manhattan

by Cordelia Mendoza

Here's a great story I couldn't resist sharing. A real treehouse in a historical Manhattan neighborhood, in the heart of New York City! This family has built a pretty amazing hideout for their three daughters in the middle of their backyard behind their 1860s home.
Here's the full article.


A sneak preview of our displays for this weekend's Halloween & Fall Open House

We've been decorating and primping for our Open House this Saturday.
Here's a sneak peak! Our talented Martha designed some great banners for the store and they're all available for purchase.

My favorite pumpkins . . . white, white and more white!

Debbi did a beautiful display on the harvest table, mixing everything she could get her hands on - it all magically comes together.

The dolls are marionets that were used to entertain the troops during WWII USO 

We have vintage Jack O'lanterns - they're so fun

Happy Fall,  y'all!
Come by and say hi!


Remnants of the Past was wow, wow, WOW!!!

by Cordelia Mendoza
Our booth. Had to get that Ocean Beach sign in there, a bit of the beach in the country
What a show! Remnants of the Past is an amazing show. From the people that came ot the show, our fellow dealers, the staff, the kind owners of this fabulous property, talking with Rachel Ashwell, all of it was so special. The day flew by, it was so busy with customers for hours and hours, the line coming in didn't stop. I've never seen anything like it before and we've been involved in a lot of shows.
Here's a peak at our booth. We were running out of merchandise after a couple of hours.
Pammy, with Up in the Attic, was our neighbor at Remnants, a jewelry dealer, was kind enough to let me share some of her photos.

Erika and Sandy from the Tattered House in Roseville had this amazing harvest table from West Virginia - just loved it. I shot a photo of it when they were setting up before it got covered with their fabulous merchandise. These girls rock it!

Deb Bob from Retreat Style had outstanding merchandise:
This is another amazing display - they came all the way from Washington:

A shot of the hills in the background - perfect weather!

Here's Carol, the fabulous pumpkin booth - her pumpkins are like nothing I've ever seen before - they have inspirational sayings on them, nothing to do with Halloween.

Rachel Ashwell and me - she's so genuine; I always enjoy seeing her.

Huge iron chandelier embellished with twigs and glass jars - beyond whimsical!

The barn was the perfect setting for all of the creative antiquers showing their wares

More clever displays . . .
We'll  be back on April 30th - don't miss this show, it's like none other.
