to grandmother's house we go. Was thinking today how MY HOUSE is now Grandmother's. Though it's nostalgic to realize the magic of the Holidays was different for us as small children, (and much less work), it's also exciting to be creating magic for the little ones. And moments of humor can make the chores easier. Our Abyssinian, Cruiser, helped make the tablecloth for Thanksgiving last year. He would run and jump on one end and slide with the cloth all the way down, taking it with him off the other end. Here he is in mid-slide and helping cut for hemming. Blessings to all!
Glen wired a Coleman lantern to replicate the original and very collectible 1953 Holiday one, in green and red, and we've sold 8 lamps and lanterns this week. He's also repaired more than a dozen. Now that it's dark so early, we're proud to help our customers "light up the night"!
Glen and I stayed at Sunriver Resort for our anniversary last weekend. No snow, but wonderful sunshine and the beauty of the Ponderosa pines. Here's a picture we took at the High Desert Museum, one of our favorite places.
We opened early today to meet with the BYG ladies, who brought us new signs and rustic birdhouses. These seem to fly out the door. Best of all, they brought fresh greens from their folks' place to make the store more festive!!! If you can't read the #, it's 360-687-0075, and they've created a magical shopping experience for this weekend!
Thanks for checking in to my new blog. Currently my husband and I own and run a consignment furniture and antique store and a lamp repair shop in Camas, WA. With mixed feelings, we will be taking our business home next March, 2009.
WE WANT TO THANK ALL OUR CONSIGNERS AND CUSTOMERS FOR MAKING OUR FIRST TWO YEARS SO WONDERFUL!! BLESS YOU DURING THIS SEASON OF THANKSGIVING AND ALWAYS.
Cottage Consignments, Inc. will become “COTTAGE LIGHTS” at the end of February 2009, combining the lamp repair store with furniture, gifts and décor.
We are moving “Let There Be Light”, the lamp/lantern wiring and repair shop to our home on Prune Hill in Camas, open weekends and by appointment.
As Cottage Lights, we’ll also be having Seasonal Sales of furniture, gifts and décor there on Ivy St.; Winter, Spring, Summer (Flea Market) and Fall, dates to be forthcoming. (Be sure you’re on our email list!)
Recent consignments need to be picked up no later than February 20th, 2009. We won’t be taking new consignments after November 20, 2008.
If you have ANYTHING that’s been here more than 90 days, it WILL be donated per the original agreement. Please check your agreements for your pick up dates.
Once again, we thank you so much for your support and patronage!!! Glen and Marci Fitzgerald

Glen and I have been married for almost 9 years now and whatever either of us dreams up, Glen can make it happen! Previously, we opened "1817 Main Street Vintage" in November, 2011 and it was the culmination of many dreams and talents. We have now passed it on to two of our former dealers so we can focus on creating original lighting and curating our booths at OLD GLORY ANTIQUES at 20th and Main in Vancouver, WA.
Having read decorating magazines since the age of 8, I (Marci) have a true passion for design. My addiction to textiles, lamps and furniture compelled me to be quite the gypsy for many years, moving from home to home so I could redecorate!
When Glen and I fell in love and married, we became a true creative partnership. Now all of my crazy design ideas become reality as Glen can fabricate anything, from farm tables with his wood lathe, to industrial lights, many of which already grace local rehabbed homes and bars and restaurants.Please visit us at OLD GLORY.
