Fun at the Flea Market

My friend Kathy and I had a great time Saturday at Merchant Square's Winter flea market! We each found a few treasures to add to our own collections and I stocked up on vintage silverware ready to be made into garden markers. Come on in to the store this week to see what other goodies I found!

Vintage Crocheted Throw

A throw as light as a cloud! Our grandmothers used to call these shawls, and our mother's called them afghans. You'll call this crocheted throw exquisite! This is a vintage piece made of ecru mohair. It measures 46"x46". Soft enough to bundle a baby in, you could also use this as a wrap for yourself, a table topper, or as a small blanket to snuggle in while watching your favorite Jane Austen movie!

Antique European Chandelier

Have you noticed that elaborate chandeliers are becoming fashionable again? This exquisite piece is from Belgium and is 50-75 years old, but has been completely rewired so it's ready to install. It's made of a deep red/burgundy porcelain and is embellished with a floral design, gemstones and gilt arms. A light fixture like this would look stunning in a front entry or over your dining table. Many designers are also putting these in bedrooms to give that "Old World" feeling. If interested contact Karee at

Is it Spring already?

My Saturdays are usually spent antiquing but today I gardened. Yes, that's what you do in Arizona in January! I tilled and prepped my herb garden and planted Sugar Snap peas, Buttercrunch and Salad Bowl lettuces and pansies. Then I potted up some sweet Primroses to go by the front door. For me Primroses are a sure sign of Spring! (Even if it is still January).

Antique English Chimney Pot

These are authentic antique English chimney pots. Remember Mary Poppins and the chimney sweeps? These used to adorn the rooftops of London but now serve as architectural accents for your front porch, patio or garden. They look great filled with ivy or flowers. I have 2 of them offered at $400 each. If you're lucky you can find them elsewhere on the internet for $1000 apiece.
 Own a piece of history!
Approx 31" tall
