Since everything is “Pumpkin Spice” lately I thought I’d jump on the fall harvest hay/band wagon and work it into the weekly display. Ta-da! Spicy enough? We’ve been injecting so many new items onto the floor this week and should have it all out in a couple of days. You shouldn’t wait for the weather to get chilly to shop, c’mon by soon for the full selection.

Any of you who have met Arthur know that he’s far from being a shy or timid soul. It’s often hard for me to get a word in edgewise with him, and that’s on a good day. This week I was introduced to a whole different side of him when Jean Paul Gaultier came in to shop for some inspiration. Arthur became so soft spoken and actually listened attentively when spoken to. It was mystifying really. I guess the cat got his tongue.

I would like to introduce you to the oldest Louis Vuitton item that we’ve ever had grace the shop. This 1930’s LV hat trunk is literally worth dying for, or at the least worthy of a first born. It measures 19.5″ x 19.5″ x 11.5″. Just flip this baby on it’s side and voilà, a chic end table that will leave your guests drooling off of their chins. You may want to keep a tissue box handy on top of it….It also has it’s original skeleton key to keep your secret stash safe. Please contact us for more details.

Some would call this tone peach but that is so 2000’s, don’t you think? Himalayan pink sounds better and it is more on trend. You deserve to shine bright like the Himalayan pink salt lamp that everyone seems to have, including yours truly (and yes we’ve given it a lick, don’t act like you haven’t thought about it.) Either way, it’s a feminine and soft hue that is perfect for your next August-September event.

Side note; we will be closed this coming Monday, August 7.

L~1960’s hand beaded silk dress, size 8-10.

Periwinkle and lilac season may be long gone but their floral hues remain in this week’s all vintage display. How EPIC is that centre piano shawl?! It’s massive, so much so that it could be used as a bedspread in an extremely chic room. It has been doubled up for the wrap look to make all you boho babes roar. It dates back to the 1920’s, is all silk and completely hand embroidered. As always, nothing but the best for you kittens!
