Gorgeous Hand Painted Dressers

What a delight it was to receive these two beautiful hand painted dressers. Reminiscent of European painted furniture or American tole painted pieces so popular in the 20's and 30's, these dressers are real statement pieces that can work with many different types of decor.

The paint is a lovely teal green with salmon colored roses on gold and taupe vines. Both dressers are a heavy, solid wood and are in beautiful condition. The highboy dresser has five spacious drawers and the lowboy has six drawers. Separate or together, they are sure to add a real flair to any bedroom.

The high boy is priced at $283 SOLD

The low boy is priced at $293 SOLD

Puppets, Puppets, and More Puppets!

Puppets from Indonesia, Thailand, and India are among the many pieces of a vintage collection we've received this past week. They each represent a unique piece of culture from their respective countries. Colorful, exotic, and playful are the words that come to mind. If you are a collector, a decorator or simply love a touch of the exotic, then you'll love these pieces. Each priced at under $70.

More Vintage Puppet and Doll Photos

Here are a few more photos of the vintage puppets and dolls we've gotten in this week. These are cute as all get up! I especially like the vintage French wooden dolls. Kind of reminds me of the articulated dolls from art class. The pair of Chinese dolls are $55 and the cute wooden doll is $27.

Two great new handbags!

If Betsey Johnson's "Betseyville" line of handbags is your bag, then you'll love the new green and black leopard print handbag we received this week. Priced beautifully at $65.00

Kathy Van Zeeland also makes a very cool line of handbags and we have a lovely one in grey and white brocade. It's a large shopper style handbag with the coin purse on the outside. $59.00

Both are in great shape. Sorry, no pics today. My camera needs charging.

Vintage Doll/Puppet Collection for Sale

We have received a wonderful collection of vintage dolls and puppets from a consignor who has had many of them in her family for nearly 75 years. Some from France, Italy, Indonesia, Italy, Thailand, Holland, and the good ole USA (American Indian). We'll be posting them for the next week or so. Enjoy!

These two dolls are vintage French dolls. They have got to be late 1800's or early 1900's. There's definitely some wear in the fabric and on the faces, but they are fabulous. Each is being offered at $43 or $80 for both. SOLD

After Hours Shopping for Moms?

This month we've had several requests to be open for after hours events for Moms who can't make it to the store during regular hours. We've hosted two special events for small groups who had the store to themselves (with one of us, of course)for a few hours of laughter and shopping. Hors D'Ouevres, beverages and music assisted in setting the mood for uninterrupted shopping, modeling, and all around good fun.

If you have a group of friends who'd like to arrange for a couple of hours to yourselves for shopping, friendship and fun, give us a call, cuz we have a special host ready to be there on an appointment basis.

E-mail us at or give us a call at 707-778-3499 to schedule a time for your special party.

We Have a Winner!

Watch for our next e-mail announcing Special Sunday Openings in the coming months. Each time, there will be a drawing for some special gift. Don't miss it!
