Staged to sell...

So far the dining room on Glen's daughter's former home is ready for listing.
It is hard for a collector like me to stay so simple, but now I  want to move in!

New original lighting!

Glen found these antique white glass shades on San Juan Island and added vintage fixtures and a khaki-colored twisted wire.

 These industrial pendants are so cute and under $70 each.
 This was an Industrial iron cage, never for the birds!

And this newer one with bubbled glass has a sort of nautical look.
All of these are up and available at Camas Antiques.

Monticello Revamp

Chandeliers anyone?

We attended "dealer night", (which was also open to the publicthis time), and had a great time redoing our booth and talking with both customers and other dealers as we negotiated the crowded aisles and rubber-necked as people brought new items in!


All the spots are full of new stuff and there's something there I'm sure you need!

We went a little bit cabin, a little bit cottage and a little bit Paris. The cute gray hutch already sold today.

French Love!

Wandered into a new (to me) thrift shop and fell in love with this 5' x 5' cabinet with metal and glass French-style casement doors! OOO-La-la

Got a GREAT price on it and a fabulous mirror (pics coming soon) and we had it on top of my old buffet in no time!

I had to promise NO MORE LARGE PIECES unless we're planning to sell them! I would have put it at our spot at Monticello but it's a reproduction (sigh), so I had to keep it. Darn!

Summer Colors at Camas Antiques!

In hopes of sunshine and in honor of Memorial Day, we went patriotic.

Simply Wonderful!

Inspired by Spring cleaning and new decor books on simplifying, I cleared out my craft room, Glen painted the walls (they looked like a pincushion) a custom color, (a lighter version of an accident we call "Fitzgerald Stone"), and I edited like crazy when I put stuff and junk back in. I love the soft gray-green color and Glen is so proud of me, only ONE nail hole!

Wonderful first month at Monticello!

We had to restock 3 times in our first month at Monticello Antique Marketplace! We sold large chairs and tall lamps and several of Glen's electrified concoctions, including six lanterns! the garden show is on until May 31st, so if you haven't been, you'll want to shop there. Here's how the spot looked a few days ago, but we've been told we need to get back there already

booth at Camas window

 We took down the "general store" front window and went back to neutrals in our spot. I was happy to have some littles in there and it was great to get the shelving back and the crates up on the ladder top again.

Now where do I put that truckload of colorful "mercantile" stuff?
