The Sweetest Story

Posted on: Tuesday, March 19, 2013

About a year ago we had the coolest family from the L.A. area come into the store and spend some time with us. The lovely and (hot) mama of three fell in love with a set of beautiful carriage doors. The papa, wasn't as much in love quite yet, he (voice of reason) thought that maybe they would sleep on it.  

Before leaving the store, us gals, had a heart to heart with her. We knew that she had a little somethin' somethin' that could persuede him to fall in love with the doors as much as she had. She knew exactly what we were sayin' and said she was already on it!

The next day they came back into the store--no wait, I think she called--whatever, not so important how, but said that they wanted to buy the doors and would be back to pick them up with a truck soon (her magic worked!).

Flash forward 3 months, they walk in the door with their 3 darling lil ones and informed us that they turned out to be the most expensive doors they've ever purchased! She was 3 months pregnant!!


We think about them from time to time, they are not forgettable, the beautiful family they are. This past week they came in for a visit and guess who we met?! Yes, the beautiful Paisley Rose!! And guess what? The doors are in Paisley's nursery!


Thank you Jen for letting us share your story!

Us: "Heck yeah!"



We were so thrilled to be included in the road trip adventure that this crew produced and we're so happy to see so many of our favorite places in the article as well. It is great company to be in!

Road Trip Heaven Part II

Posted on: Tuesday, February 26, 2013


The yearly white elephant sale in Oakland-this sale benefits the Oakland Museum. They take donations for a year and then set it up for the annual sales. We get in during the pre-sale days and usually fill the trunk. To get in pre-sale you either need to volunteer or donate goods.  This year we joined in with the Glitterfarm gals and Polly Jane and had so much fun that we needed to break out in dance!


Road Trip Heaven

Posted on: Monday, February 25, 2013


This year has already been amazing! With new goals for the year, we have put road trips at the top of the priority list. We have logged some miles and have made some really fun memories. We've listed a few favorites below. 


Alameda Flea-hands down favorite! Not only do they have everything you'd ever want or need, but they also have the best food trucks ever!!


Long Beach Flea-this is the flea that started it all for me! Before San Luis, I lived in Long Beach so it is familiar and easy. Lots of mid century, love the price points, lots of art, furniture, garden, and they have also added a handful of clothing/boots/leathers as well. 


This may have not made it into the store and may be hanging in my kitchen...


The High Noon Western Show in Mesa Az.-we have some friends that are the rock stars of this show (my opinion as well as others). It happens once a year and is was so worth the trip if you love authentic western goods.


This is not a flea market and there are not deals, though the prices are in line to market value. This wasn't a trip for resale but rather for looking and learning. I did bring home some earrings and a pair of moccasin boots that I bought from Mary Emmerling (more on that later).


We also highjacked some tumbleweed that I had wanted to use for a display coming up. The mister wasn't thrilled but he played along!


On the way home, we drove through Joshua Tree, stayed nearby at the Roughley bed and breakfast in 29 Palms and hit some thrift stores nearby.


An amazing start to the year!


Stay tuned for part II...
