Be Mine

Check out these new items that are available at our shop or on Ebay (our user name is shemarielizabeth). Visit our Ebay store is Robins in the Trundle Bed at http://stores.ebay.com/Robins-In-The-Trundle-Bed-Antiques).

For those of you already in the mood for Valentine's Day, we are offering these red glass hearts, each tied with a tag that reads "Be Mine" nestled on a bed of straw on an antique English platter.

This beautiful Valentine dates to the Victorian era. It is a delightful confection of lace, butterfly scraps and cupids! You can find it for purchase on Ebay!

This charming Glengarry velvet hat featured on an antique French mannequin head was a fortuitous find this summer.

This antique Victorian cape is also available in our current Ebay auction listings. It would be a beautiful accessory on any of your winter adventures. Can you imagine wearing this to skate on Frog Pond?

We adore this box with all of its family treasures contained within. Although there are only a few scraps of paper affixed inside the glove box, they tell a marvelous New England Civil War era story. We were even able to research and discover a daguerreotype of the owner of the box.

It will be difficult to part with this delightful collection of vintage topsy turvy, sock and rag dolls. Wouldn't you like to join them as they go on a gay sledding adventure on a snowy New England hillside?

Happy New Year

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”
