Last minute gift ideas and trying to survive with your holiday gift number 5!

Hey all! Are you almost finished with the prep? Time to add some sparkle with another special sale item. I think you will really like this one as they sell really well at their regular price.  I have still been bringing in more things each day.

The glimmer silver adds compliments this black console.

Many antique and vintage silver trays, wine coolers, ice buckets and cocktail shakers are available...shakers from $58.00-$245.00.  Wonderful one of a kind gifts. The wooden printers blocks spelling XOXO on the left have been mounted on iron stands and are $275.00 for the set.

The vintage lucite ice bucket on the bottom shelf is stunning and doubles the impact of the mirrored and lucite vintage bar cart $2200.00.  The lucite is thick and nice and heavy.

From France... 19th century wine cooler with lion form detail $395.00

The silver piece in front is an Ikora german metal vase with ebonized inlay from the Industrial Age. I brought it back from Amsterdam $285.00

Love these cute vintage Scotty dog glasses $95.00 set of 5

Just in ! bronze jewelry caskets from France $85.00-$125.00
Vintage perfume bottles $65.00-$95.00

Antique Putti $145.00 pair

Antique silverplate napkin rings $25.00-34.00 ea.
Pewter hors d'oeuvre plates $85.00 set of 6.

Vintage brass napkin rings. $6.00 ea. 16 available

Now for the special holiday sale....hand blown silver glass vases, 20% off!

I have doubles but supplies are limited.  Gorgeous lustre especially this time of year. Pricing from
$85.00-$155.00 with the 20% off $68.00- $124.00 ea.

Don't try this.  I had a set of hokey Santa mugs that were in need of cleaning for Christmas morning and I placed them in the dishwasher...boohoo, winter white Santa?

Don't try this either....I thought my roping was looking a little dark so I used spray snow to create a flocked look.  It was going on kind of clear so I kept spraying and spraying.  20 minutes later I walked by and it looked like Walmart!!!   Oooops! I never used spray snow before, don't think I will again.

 Also I'd like to share a holiday tradition in my family that I know some of you already have adopted.  Each year I email the family members young and old with a Christmas question.  They send their response back to me and I print them out without their names attached.  It's always fun to try and figure out who said what.  We started with "what was your most memorable Christmas?", we even had "Santa is tired of wearing red, design his outfit "This year the question is "the wise men brought precious gifts...what would you bring?" We howl at some of the responses. Someday you will post a blog response instead of emailing me to let us ALL know what traditions you love. Post your tradition HERE.

To recap , your pre Christmas gifts from me on sale are:
Window panel orders HERE
Cowhide rugs HERE
Stone planters HERE
All Jewelry HERE
Hand blown silver vases
Limited time....

Don't forget to stop by with a donated canned good to enter our $100.00 gift certificate giveaway.  Currently we have 2 entries so the odds are great!
Hope you are having fun spreading cheer!
Happy Holidays.  We are open on Sundays in

GREAT GIFT IDEAS and BIG savings in store with your holiday gift number 4!

New finds  from my trip to Amsterdam have arrived at the shop (all in one piece, YAAAAY!)  some wonderful one of a kind gifts for everyone on your list...

A really charming 19th century sled with original paint.  This was not a Christmas ornament but a real wooden sled used by a child, adorable.

Perfume bottles, French tree ornaments and plenty of silver add the glitter we love.

 Vintage French flatware large enough to use for serving is 40% off and a great gift for those on your list who love to entertain.  The trench bowl is from Sweden and has dozens of changing uses.  

 I love it above with the cedar and apples....  

 Boxes are wonderful gifts whether an heirloom as in the 19th century marquetry walnut ones (with keys!) or the vintage leather Italian ones. The dark one in the center is actually carved from a burl wood, has 2 compartments and is lined in felt.....very unusual addition for the box collector.    

 Each tiny piece of wood is placed by hand . The interior is newly lined with Florentine paper AND has a key...a true keepsake to display and use.  

Many gifts for the foodie....polka dot terracotta urns from Hungary  and 2 sets of retro 4 piece mixing bowls, a must in every kitchen.  You can see the Art Deco sauce boat on the left with the Bakelite handle, sweet!  

Great for serving or just adding warmth to your kitchen....antique French bakery boards...  

Large  Industrial letters....  

 Green glass dishes, etched pitchers, white crocks (or even for snacks) and 2 mortars and pestles one clear glass, one porcelain.... The tiny Santa mugs are resting on a 2 tier petite etegere from Amsterdam ...great for small desserts or even the bathroom!

 Each piece of vintage Paris porcelain rimmed in green is sold separately with a charming C monogram could be from a distant relative. Some wonderful pieces are the large soup tureen and 2 smaller ones, gravy boat and deep rimmed platter. A beautiful addition to the hostess' table.   

  JUST IN knit throws in wonderful patterns....$85.00-$125.00 each.    

 For the gamer a vintage brass inlay domino set and antique inlaid chess set..  

 Can't figure out how to truly indulge that special someone?  How about this 18th century French painted footstool newly covered in genuine mink!  

And the holiday sale number 4 is 20% off ALL JEWELRY!!!!!  
 And everyone loves turquoise and sterling.  We have Ralph Lauren to thank for making these vintage Native American pieces a Patriotic statement.  These special pieces are "forever in style " jewelry, that piece you always go back to and a wonderful gift.  

 Vintage sterling stacking bracelets and onyx Native American cuffs.

To recap ....currently on sale for 20% off are
all cowhide rugs HERE
all ready made window panel orders HERE
all stone planters HERE
And now ALL jewelry is 20%!
Lots more one of a kind items are available....

Please EMAIL ME for pricing or more pictures....
