I love the feedback we're getting about these posts and pictures! Now, someone has asked about lamps, so I quickly ran around the shop late yesterday and snapped just a few pictures... and one of something else, a fire screen thing (that looks like a fan). No more comments from me this week, I have to hurry into the shop!

You Asked for it!

... so here are a few pictures of vintage coins, a few of the clocks we have in house, a fabulous ANTIQUE WHEELCHAIR , and a few other items that caught my fancy!

Before the pics, another note: we have two new dealers to welcome aboard! And we're very excited to have their inventory compliment ours. Keep checking back for the pictures! (We still have one small dealer space available if you want to get in on the excitement!)

We're listening...
Someone from the East Bay asked about US coins... well, we do have allot. Our coin dealer is always bringing in new stock. Richard has quite a following! Now, trying to take pictures of just a small portion of his collection is another matter, challenging for me... but is my best effort to show you just a few of the coin trays he offers.

Ok... no one asked to see these, but they sure bring back memories! Remember the 50's when our parents would bronze our shoes!!
Here is the ANTIQUE WHEELCHAIR someone asked about. The finish, color, and structure of this chair is beautiful.... why do I picture Shirley Temple pushing this about with Poor Clara in it? (Remember Heidi?)
Another stray, but inspiring photo... Judy's fresh from Hawaii! ah... who would have thought to pair glass pineapples with candle sticks! THIS would be a really UNIQUE gift!
OK... I did get requests about clocks, so I scurried around and snapped a few pictures... some of these are vintage, others are newer... they are all charming. I don't know how to describe the last clock though... take a look and see for yourself!

See what I mean??? hmmm

Simply leave a comment and tell us what you are looking for or what you collect. You also can email me at: and I'll put you on our VIP mailing list (which wont be shared anywhere). This will keep you informed of our "specials", one of which is coming up in March.

In the mean time, have a fabulous day, enjoy the rain!
