Springtime in the shop!

While we were away in San Francisco, the team of Barbara and Devie were running the shop.
Look at the yummy displays they created while we were away!

Love the blending of old, older and freshly updated pieces!

An old Eastlake style sofa that has been partially deconstructed.
I just love this look!

Crumpled brown wrapping paper never looked so good as it does here as a table covering!
And you can even add your own whimsical words to it!
Great job ladies!

Have a magical week--the end of February is here. Time to think Spring!

And  tocelebrate, please join us for our next DIVA night on Friday March 8 6-9PM.
We'll be showcasing our fresh goods just in from San Francisco, and
you can preview shop our Mega Indoor Garage sale!!

All the best

We're here in San Francisco!!

Hello everyone! We're here at the International Show at the Moscone center in downtown San Francisco! Ready to fill our roller bag with amazing goodies to bring back to the shop!
Rachel has the list of what we need!

Can my smile get any bigger? I am too excited to be here!!

And the booths are filled to overflowing with great original jewelry, fabulous displays, and really cool people! We loved this booth that was edgy and industrial!

And this was just the first load we took back to the hotel! Look at those bagfuls!!

It's been a great first day, and now time to walk back to the hotel, have dinner and rest up for tomorrow, as we have to go back and buy everything we didn't get today!
All the best,
Colette and Rachel

We're Going on a Buying Trip!

That's me!
Grinning because  we had just arrived at the market to start our Buying trip.
And that was on our last trip.
And we're going on another one!
To San Francisco!

And we need to bring back amazing goods that will take your breath away!
Lots and lots of vintage and fresh goods!!

And there's Rachel--she's coming to San Francisco too!
We have lots on our list to buy!
 Accessories! Gifts! Fun unusual must haves!
Trendy stuff that we can't find in Montana!
We'll find it and buy it and bring it back!

Wish us luck, and we'll see you when we get back in a week.

Oh, and yes, the shop is open while we're away...Devie and Barbara will take care of you!!
See you!
All the best,
Colette and Rachel

A touch of pink and red for February

Are you needing a bit of color too? I realized yesterday that I am craving color!

As much as I adore the cremes and tans and greys of a Scandinavian color palette, this time of year I need a bit of color in pink or lavender or orchid to pop the neutrals and liven things up!

 And you know how we love to "play" with our product! You just never know what we'll tuck into a birdcage. Jewels are now nested in this pretty red cage!

Hope your day is filled with a bit of color!
All the best,

It's February!

February is here! It's time to shed the winter blahs!

I truly believe that a bit of chocoate, a romantic card, and a touch of red takes care of the winter blahs!

 I love all of the colors of the month:Red and pink and lavenders and just a bit of lace and softness makes the harsh winter seem to disappear.

We are stocked with vintage romantic goodies--cards that make me swoon.

 And such pretty touches to send anyone.
 I think everyone deserves a Valentine, so I intend to send them out to my sweet friends near and far! Let's share the joy we used to get in grade school when our "mailbox" would be stuffed with Valentines! Remember? Such an old fashioned, sweet tradition!

And have a piece of chocolate too! I insist!
All the best,
