Back From The High Point Market!!!!!

Yes, we are back from the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point and we brought some great finds with us!! Most of our new merchandise has been ordered and set to arrive over the next few weeks (or months in the case of one vendor!!). But as purveyors of wonderful things we shop for "FINDS" some vintage, some "one-offs" some reproductions and some new! You have told us that you love some of the industrial finds that we have had in the store and we couldn't agree more! I love the juxtaposition of putting a clean edge industrial piece with something a little more soft and refined. The adjustable draftsman stools above are obviously great for sitting but they make great end tables too.

Everyone has raved about our industrial coffee table with drawers so we were are excited to bring in the console. The drawers offer useful storage and the reclaimed wood on top make it very easy to live with!

This adjustable table with the distressed, worn patina would look great in any urban setting or cabin. While it isn't really old, you can have fun making up stories about where you found it!!

This lamp is the sister to the copper lamp that we have had in the store before. We love it because it is small enough to use on a desk, but because it is metal it would work well outside on a covered porch too.

Everyone always wants to buy our potpourri displays so we were excited to stumble across some more of these vintage Hungarian wash basins on the stand and the baby bath tubs. As shown above they make great beverage holders but they are also great as unique planters. We love storage baskets and thought these vintage industrial baskets were wonderful. We also found some fabulous "very large" French-looking market baskets (sorry my picture didn't turn out). And just wait until you see the antique hotel keys that I found...from an old Italian hotel in Venice. I did some research and found a postcard at an online auction that had been sent to someone in the US in 1918 from the actual of course I bought that too. Not sure what I'll do with them but we'll come up with something.
Shawn and I will be in the store this weekend so do come in and see us!
