The Shopping Bag

One of the Shop Girls, Karen K., went to New York this past weekend.  Guess where she ended up? 

She brought back this shopping bag for me.  Thanks, Karen, I just love it.

Spring Open House

Spring Has Sprung.  What a great start to the new season with our Spring Open House last weekend.  There's Jeanine on the left, I'm in the middle and our Blog Queen, Sandi (A Cottage Muse) is on the right.  We're so glad to have Sandi back working with us.  Her enthusium lifted the energy of the store up the minute she walked in.

Everyone had such a good time, and what great spring displays throughout the store. 

The garden decor was flying out of the store.

Vintage plant stands and old colanders hold these beautiful plates.

This is our newest dealer, Martha's space.  She is sure to do very well.  She has already sold quite a few things.  And her one of a kind collages are wonderful. 

These faux chocolate bunnies, are almost good enough to eat.  Jeanine is always coming up with the cutest vignettes.

Sneak Preview

Just thought that I would share some pictures of the great items coming in this week for our Spring Open House scheduled for next weekend.

This folk art handmade bunny can be found in Jackie's booth.

Karen (A Shabby Moment in Time) brought in this wonderful vintage crackled makeup case.  Someone used it for a sewing box, it's just chock full of sewing notions. 

Jackie brought in the most beautiful and delicate china.  Her new booth is full.

Jeanine created this crate with all pear items in it. 

This bust of a woman is in Kathy's booth.  Her father won it at a Nantasket Beach carnival in 1945.  It's spectacular.

Another sneak preview of an item going into the At Home With White Event.

Spring into a New Look

Exciting things are happening at the shop.  For instance, Karen's (A Shabby Moment in Time) new garden room, filled with vintage garden items.  It's a tiny space, and she has only begun to bring things in, but I can already tell that this will be one of my favorite places in the shop to do what else, shop of course.

We also have many spring things coming in every day.
Everyone in the shop is getting ready for two big events.  Next weekend, we are having our Spring Open House, and on April 9 & 10, we are holding our first occasional event, At Home With White, a vintage market, under the white tent.  I can't wait to see what everyone will bring in.  It's all very exciting.

Today is my birthday, so my wish was to have my husband take me antiquing for the day.  Wishes do come true.  We went to New Bedford, and what a wonderful, successful shopping day I had.  Most of the items I bought will be for the "At Home With White" event in April.  Also, today, something happened that was unbelievable.  As we were taking the exit off of 495, a red tailed hawk flew within 10' of the car.  What a beautiful sight, I only wish I had my camera out.

This picture doesn't do this French style desk/vanity justice.  I'm just crazy about it, so I might just keep it for myself.  We'll see....
This printers box with letters and numbers is just fabulous.  A great piece for a farmhouse look.

This is what my garage looks like, chock full of goodies for April.  I found an industrial work station, a chippy shelf and an antique doll carriage.  The inside of the carriage has double seats that are made with beautiful worn aqua leather.
Many things are changing at the shop.  Jackie came in tonight to paint her new space.  She has great things, I'm sure her booth will look fabulous when finished.
