Why do we love punch bowls?  Let me count the ways...
They're green (re-used them instead of buying paper cups)
Multi-purpose-we served our English Trifle in one, or how about salad?

Fit for a King or a Queen

Easy come, easy go.  This bed lasted only 5 minutes after I had it set up, but I loved the transformation so I had to share it.  It started out dark and heavy, and ended up Frenchy and sold.

Needlepoint seat (2 matching chairs)

You know how we love to mix things up!

Tea Time!

In the English tradition....for those of you who enjoy a good cup of tea... we've got a great selection of tea pots, creamers and sugar sets, linens etc.  and to complete the mission shop at Just Goods for the tea and chocolate!

How do you call your Valentine?

We like the soft hum of a Mini Horner (it sure beats yelling!)and they really work (for making music at least).

We are so excited to be working with some fine photographers from XPOSE photography.  The sister team loves working with the kind of open minded people that shop at our store and decorate their homes with a mix.   For more information regarding their work go here.  Tina & Suzi will be using some of our items for their photo shoots.

France & England

Ahhh, my internet is finally up and running.  Oh how I've missed it!  These are just a few snapshots from the weekend.  XPOSE photo's took some professional shots and I'll be loading those soon, but in the meantime here's a peek of what's new.

We also have new extended hours!
We are now here on Tuesday and later on Saturday!
Tuesday-Friday 10-6
Saturday 10-4
Closed Sunday and Monday
The Thursday before First Friday, I know that's a little confusing but it's really just to dangerous to be in the store when we are revamping the vignette's.
First Friday hours 5-9 PM

We can’t believe it’s been 2 years since we opened our doors.
Time really does fly when you’re having fun. This will be our
3rd annual French
Market, but as I’ve mentioned before Linda and I are
celebrating our ancestry so we’re adding England to the
mix. Just one of the many places we will be traveling this
year as our themes will take you to some far away places
and other will be near and dear to our hearts.
Speaking of “Hearts” we will have the usual unique and one
of a kind gifts to give your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.
So please remember to shop local, if you don’t find it at our shop we have some other Linda & Bernie just returned from a buying trip, scouring the south for unique finds.
Thank you for allowing us a month off to re-eneggize ourselves, now we're ready to open the doors and see you all again!
