This week at the shop

We've been busy at the shop this past week, so thanks to everyone who has come out! I snapped a few pictures the other day.

We picked up this great table last week up north. 

Love all the chippyness!

We also picked up these great old buckets.

The graphics are wonderful.  They are from Bombay India, and transferred glycerine to the States during WWII.

Mom put together this adorable flower filled basket this week.  It would be so cute on a front door.

We have a few sailboats left in the shop.  They are perfect for summer decorating.

We also have sweet little glasses and beachy place mats this week.

How cute is this glass?  They are a great size.

We pulled out the old recipe card bundles.  We have sold a "bundle" of  these in the past.

I can't believe this bed was still around.  It is so perfect for a guest room or little girls room, or cottage, or beach house, or get the point. Kris from Junk Chic Cottage actually picked this bed up the other day.....yeah!

I used to collect old hat boxes.  I just think they are so great stacked, and are perfect for storing stuff.

Some of them actually have the owners notes still on them.  This particular box held quite a few hats.

This one is from The French Room at Marshall Fields.

I can't stress enough how perfect these flower vases are for large bloom flowers.  They are perfect for hydrangea's.

Mom also got busy this week and made more runners.  We have a few French themed ones, and she even made a few regular burlap ones a little longer than usual. 

Well, there you have it.  Thanks to all those who came out this past week, and hopefully if you haven't stopped by, you will Tuesday.  We will be open Tuesday from 9am to noon.  Have a great week everyone!
