Eye Candy For You
Many thanks to all of you who stopped by and left me a comment on my Where Blogger Create post! I was delighted to meet some new friends and discover some new blogs. I haven't had a chance to visit everyone yet but continue to make my way around. If you missed my post and you are looking for it there is a link on my sidebar.
Just when I should be letting you rest your eyes after that very long post, I have another one for you. I have to tell you about one of my very favorite things that happened during my recent vacation....
The day after we got back from the coast I went up the street to mail some Etsy packages and what to my wondering eye did appear? A brand new antique store opened in my neighborhood! I was so excited I think I hugged the proprietor and welcomed them to the neighborhood about 4 times before I even introduced myself. I might have been jumping up and down. I hope I didn't.
The proprietors, Nina and Joe are just a delight and clearly have a good eye. I thought I have one of everything but I was wrong - they do! Let's go inside and I will keep my chatter to a minimum...
You have to look high and low because there is eye candy everywhere you turn.
This is not a really large space so I was amazed at how well the space is used and how much vintage goodness they manage to pack in.
As I was sizing the pictures to post I noticed things I didn't even see when I was taking them!
One of the things I love about this shop is the mix they have managed to achieve. Large furniture, plenty of mantiques, glassware, industrial, retro all artfully woven together so the more you look the more you see.
All in all I think I spent about 3 hours there, over two visits and still don't think I saw everything. PLUS they add new all the time. This is a slippery slope only 3 blocks from home!
I hear that birdcage calling my name.
Her expression describes it exactly!
For you locals... It is called Division Street Antiques at 16016 SE Division, If you are not local and you saw something in these photos that you can't live without, the number is 503-762-6647.
Welcome Nina and Joe and best of luck in your new location. Friendly folks with the "right stuff"!!
