Spring in the Shop
Last week I sold the lovely green painted table and separate mirror, so had been on the hunt for something to replace it. Luckily I came across this very functional set of cream painted drawers, so was able to fill the corner quite quickly once again.
They could work well as a bedroom dressing table, or as storage elsewhere in the home, as their simplicity is their virtue.
I've displayed a large collection of coordinating vanity accessories on the top, from a lovely china dressing table set, to barbola mirror and a fluffy 30's powder puff.
The shop has been rather quiet this week, so I used the time to have a good sort out of the other 'boudoiry' bits and bobs on the shelves.
I've sold some of the glassware this week, so will be looking for more of that at the weekend.
I've also been making some new hand bags - I used C19th French toile fabric mixed with antique lace fragments and I added a special vintage button to fasten.
This huge Art Nouveau china bowl has been added to the bathroom area, along with some assorted sea shells.
And another recent best seller has been the colourful 1950's hats...
So I shall be on the lookout for some more Easter bonnets!
I've been collecting a few other Easter inspired items - mostly with a daffodil theme, so will show you those tomorrow when I add them to the shop - I intend to do a spring window display in the front window to try to attract the Friday market customers to pay me a visit too!
