Welcome to our blog!!

Here are some pics of our shop we opened in 2008....just for the summer.  We had so much fun pretending to be real shop owners!  Who cares  if  it was just a garage in the back of an old home in downtown Crystal Lake.  With a little paint on the walls and our flea market finds, we turned that garage into a fabulous little shoppe!

 Julie can't pass up a vintage suitcase!



One of our specialties is painted furniture. We love old buffets.  They are so versatile.


One of my favorite pieces.  I love everything about it.  The vintage aluminum plant tray, the adorable cement cherub, and the sea star resting in her shell. 




 Speaking of sea stars....we love the beach theme for summer.  Sea stars, shells, and sand grouped together on a table or put in an apothecary jar.

Check the fabulous sand castle on the pedestal.

A favorite of the customers was the vintage folding rulers found on the desk.



Delicate lady slippers placed inside a great old tattered metal box.  


This Art Deco cabinet was actually picked up at the curb.

Old mirror frames are recycled into chalkboards.  Another customer favorite.


A table full of our smalls. Monogram letters, luggage tags, vintage keys and crystals, and frames.  You have to have smalls to keep the cash flowing.


A designer picked up this china cabinet and shipped it to a client in South Carolina.


This was our checkout counter. Mom is seen in the pic writing up a HUGE sale. 

We picked up this sign on our trip to Brimfield, MA and thought it was hysterical.  It fit our shop perfectly.  Visa and Mastercard were NOT accepted.
