Christmas Open House----yes it's that time of year!

 Here's just a small preview of some of the things you'll find in our shop by Saturday.  Did I mention that's our Christmas Open House?  Yes, it's that time of year.  November 3rd is the first Saturday of November and that is traditionally the day we begin the Christmas season.

We don't have a huge amount of Christmas decor, but we did try to find some items that would be easy to add in to your Christmas decorating style.   So---if you see something you like, just know we won't be reordering during the season. 

These votive holders are an inexpensive way to add some glitz to your mantle or coffee table during the season. 

We have plenty of red and green as well as the silver and gold, along with wreaths, stems, and some Christmas florals.

Our Open House hours:
November 3, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Our special Holiday hours include our regular days of Monday thru Thursday, 11:00 - 5:30 and Saturdays 11:00 - 3:00 until Christmas.

Our shop is still evolving!

Everyone knows that today's celebrities are constantly reinventing themselves.  They know their audience will soon become bored and move on to the next newest star.  The same thing goes for retail----consumers become bored with the same things and start looking at the next new shop for a new idea.

Duralee Sofa and Jules chair by Hickory Chair
 If you haven't been in the shop lately, please stop by and see the changes.  We've opened up the floor space by removing one of our "false walls".  This has enabled us to show off our furniture and make it easier for customers to envision the pieces in their own home.

Lamps by Haeger Pottery
 If you need a reasonably priced lamp, take a look at these from Haeger Pottery.  Their bright colors and variety of sizes make them a great addition to your home.  Look around and see if any of your lamps are actually adding anything more than light----they should be adding something more to your room's overall look.  Make sure you have good proportion to the other pieces in your room.  A skinny candlestick lamp is good for a buffet, especially as a pair.  However, if that's on your nightstand, you might want to think about adding a lamp with a little more "heft". 

Here's a tip we tell a lot of our customers:  take a photo of your room, upload it to your computer and really look at it---just like you look at magazine pictures.  If your proportions are off you will see it much more quickly this way!   If you are really serious, print your photo and sketch your new ideas over the old.  

We are decorated for Fall---come in and smell our new scents from Illume.
