tarnished silver, crowns and cabbage roses

This spring we are stocking the store with tarnished silver, edwardian white nightgowns, aprons strewn with fat pink cabbage roses and white wicker rockers. We have a beautiful antique green tray decorated with black silhouettes, perfect for your first patio party of the season! Check out our antique trio of wonderfully shabby cake and bread tins spilling over with antique shredded almanac pages, tintypes and antique brown bottles, with a few beautiful feathers thrown in as if a bird has just flown by! One of our favorite items is a large turn of the century French candy box in rich sepia tones depicting a beautiful woman in a langourous pose. We love the colour of an antique skein of robin's egg blue yarn, just waiting to be made into a shawl to wrap around you on your fisrt boardwalk stroll in June. And as always if you stop by you will find repurposed items, like a locker basket hung as a peg rack to display dresses, or powder pink ballet slippers hung as wall pockets, trailing ivy and hyacinth...
