Today’s Stroll Through The Store

 

Today’s stroll takes us in and out of different spaces to catch glimpses of just a sampling of Fall décor.  Along the way we meet Cliff and Becky Lee, both longtime vendors at our shop.  So come along a little virtual stroll to see what I see…and there’s a WHOLE lot MORE!  We would LOVE to see YOU, so pop on in sometime and say HELLO!

HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!!!

Happy Fall!  This morning sure feels like fall outside with cooler temps and a nice cloud coverage overhead.  Something to smile about, for sure!

The store looks festive with pops of orange and black here and there.  I will share more of that in the next post.  Until then, HAPPY FALL!!

Let’s Walk Around….

IMG_0442

One of my favorite things to do is to walk around the store and look in to see if there are new items from the vendors.

And, as always, they seem to find those new treasures and fill them into their spaces.  Sweet dolls, tea cups and saucers…

…and a sign that says to Follow Your Bliss.  Does that mean to buy everything I LOVE?  If only my

pocket book could support buying EVERYthing that I like.  But that is ok….have to leave stuff for others.

LOL.

Linens–Vintage Aprons, Tablecloths and Embroidery

IMG_0456

Hello and good morning!  Today’s post is all about vintage textiles.  Our store has so many lovely vintage linens to choose from.

Above is a rack full of freshly laundered and aprons – a part of a woman’s wardrobe back in the ‘50’s.  Nowadays these sweet and charming pieces are used as décor in homes and oftentimes fashioned into a simple window valance.

 

Below is just a sampling of the hankies available.  They aren’t just to dab a face anymore…they are used for making quilts, bed skirts, curtains, pillows and clothing.

Below is another apron with the cutest floral check fabric.

If you like vintage textiles, then you will be a happy camper sorting through the stacks of them that many vendors have in their spaces.

There are also vintage fabrics from feed sacks to barkcloth.

Lots of adorable crochet doilies and pot holders, as shown below.

Beautiful framed samplers and scattered here and there that provide sweet sentiments of friendship….

So, as you can see, we have A LOT of vintage linens.  If you collect them, then you will want to come in a see all of the lovely pieces that have been hand selected by many of our vendors.

As a note, our store was not affected by the earthquake that hit Napa County on Sunday.   We are 100 miles from the epicenter.  Our thoughts are with those who were affected by the earthquake.

July At The Warehouse

It is hard to believe that it is already July 31 and I haven’t posted yet this month.  Where does time go?  The summer time is full with family time, parties, vacations and just enjoying the dog days of summer.

 

Our store continues to get better all of the time and we would like to welcome many of our new vendors to our Antique Warehouse family and, sadly, say so long to some of our vendors who have been an integral part of our store for many years.  You will be missed!

 

This post will be a bit longer than most as a means to share more of what is available right now.  Plenty of cottage style and shabby chic furniture fill the spaces, such as this wonderful cabinet in Cheryl B.’s space. (dealer 2575)

Cliff (dealer 299) has this wonderful bell available and the “Lucky Strike” sign just so happens to go nicely with it.

Debbie S. has beautiful items for sale in her case (dealer 75).  Check our the majolica plates and her wonderful motto prints.

There is no guessing what her favorite color is….green.  Plenty of pretty green pottery pieces fill the shelves, too.
