personal fave

i know i'm swamping you guys with store pictures, but just one more.

i'm having major anxieties about letting things go. when a customer comes in and decides to buy a piece, i have to start taking really deep breaths.


like this. this little vignette makes me so happy, i don't see how i could ever part with any bit of it. surely someone will want to take all the bits of it home together. all as a family.

the green lamps, the botanicals, the buffet.

sigh.

but the very definition of vignette is a brief incident or scene, so i'll suffice to enjoy it all in its briefness.


(don't get me wrong, i WILL part with all it - i just might interview you about your intentions before it leaves me =)

I've already downloaded that photo for my inspiration files -- but I just downloaded it again. I don't want you to part with it! It's just perfection. { And those accent lines on the console are so fabulous!! }

haha!! now you are sounding like the antique dealer in my area. If he likes you and you answer his questions to his liking you could be allowed to purchase one of his beauties. If not, you will go away disappointed as many, many have.

Your pieces are beautiful and I can't blame you; I would want to keep them altogether as well.

a hundred years ago (okay-it was late 1980/early90's)a friend and I were milliners creating "romantic" hats with vintage flowers, ribbons, etc...(which back then--without easy access to the internet- was very difficult to find)When my partner would say that the hat was too beautiful and she couldn't part with it--we would put a price that was STUPID on the hat-guess what? They always sold :) it made parting a little easier.
I love those green lamps-- how big are they?

Jamie, that buffet is TO DIE FOR! Is it new or vintage?

Someone may have said this already.........but did you see where Nick Olsen called you his idol??

Wendy said...

I'm loving the shop photos! Would it be crass of me to ask the prices of the items in that beautiful vignette? The buffet is to die for and the botanicals.....

liso. said...

mmm, no please. i mean, please don't stop putting up store picture. no, double negative. please continue putting up store pictures! i've absolutely loved seeing them...wish i could visit the store (it would be a long road trip) because it's so lovely.

haha, whenever I leave my purse on the console table in our front hall my mom accuses me of "ruining her vignette"

if only i were in the area. I would come and adopt this whole display.

Colette's Cottage said...

We need MORE store pics! It's amazing!

And too funny about your adoption process for the furniture- I always wondered if it was hard for artists to let go of special pieces...

Just saw this over on CasaSugar. This sideboard & the styling is just gorgeous. Love your blog! xo.

parisienish said...

i second Julia - keep swamping us with pics! parting with pieces that pull your vignettes together gets easier, trust me! you'll get more excited about making money =)

I love the images of your store--the more the merrier! I can understand you not wanting this vignette broken--it is just beautiful.

I think I've commented here before, but I'm not sure. So, if not...Hi! I'm Karrie and I love your blog. I found my way to it via a bookcase of the day featured on Apt. Therapy a few months ago and have been regularly checking in ever since. Congrats on your store opening!

Holly said...

Congrats on your store! And I know how you feel. I've been dealing antique and vintage furniture and accessories for over 12 years and fondly remember some of the very first items I bought for my business. Some things are just so pretty/unique that they stay with you. You just hope the new owner gives them a good (i.e. worthy) home! :-)

More store pics, please. We won't complain!

ashlina @ secrets of domestic bliss said...

absolutely AMAZING....and im sure you will create something even more perfect!!!!!

:)

Jaimee said...

will you share the price on that killer buffet? TDF.

Black Dog Salvage said...

we can completely relate :) there is always a bit of a pause when our favorites get sold...i'm sure our customers think we're nuts. it always seems to happen the very moment a vignette becomes 'just right'. good luck the parting... they are all beautiful!
