things here have been pretty exciting lately. not only are we unearthing great vintage accessories for your
spring spruce-up, but we have a couple of major road trips and antique buying shows planned.
searching, laughing, finding.
but - we're not just about old stuff anymore.
we've been on a big campaign to let locals know that we have great 'new' finds in the shop as well.
just like the vintage stuff that made us famous, our retail lines are painstakingly handpicked
and share an individual twist as well as compliment many of our antiques. we've been focusing on
house accessories, kitchen wares, and personal care products.
so remember us for your next special event or holiday (psst: mom's day is sunday, may 11th).
we can help you find that special birthday present or pick out the perfect hostess gift.

the sweetest 1920's beveled mirror.
is a little seaside cottage. an old sea captain's library sits on the top of the house in a sturdy little turret. a birds-eye view through the window reveals an old topography map, vintage books...close to the fireplace sits an old underwood for writing, and cozy chairs are home to warm throws for spring evenings spent watching the waves crash and break just down the hill.
come on in to the shop and dream up your own story.
