oh what fun we had digging this week! we were invited to a local collector's home: 70 years of WOW!

we were there for hours, got extremely dirty, and moved loads and loads into our cars.
can you think of a better day?

here's a sampling:

architect's stool, circa 1925. metal twist brace styling.

 collection of vintage art supplies: wonderful old boxes containing pastels, oil paints, colored pencils.

 rattan veranda chairs: intricate design and cane seats (found three of these beauties !)

 french market pushcart, circa 1930: this woven wonder rides along on wooden wheels, complete with rattan handle. perfect for the farmers market!

 pair of silver plated cologne bottles circa 1940.

 darners kit: this complete kit circa 1940 is packed with celluloid tools, thimbles, and cuteness!

 AND the amazing news is we are now open until 7pm every night!

if you've read this far (then we love you!) come in between the hours of 5 and 7 and simply say  the code: LATE HOURS and pick up a secret jewel for $5!

(this secret sale runs for the month of may | one per customer.)

lots going on in the shop...

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.

in this week:

the sweetest 1920's beveled mirror.

royal ENAMEL 1939 typewriter.
set of 6 INCREDIBLE 1930's captain's chairs.
viscount portable 1950's beauty in its own carrying case.
farm soaps (our fave: patchouli, cedar, and sage!)
nests...the perfect reminder of spring.
life is pretty good here...back to unpacking the truck.

see you at the shop,

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.
