We had a beautiful, sunny weekend here in the Nations Capitol. Weather predictions for Monday’s inauguration ceremonies- not as nice.
The beautiful weather seems to have brought out the shoppers as we had a good weekend at the shop. A variety of items sold, as well as the two pieces of furniture pictured below (the two drawer table in front and the grey side table on the left). We also sold the pineapple finial inside the birdcage. Unfortunately, the wooden magnifying glass on the table seems to have disappeared. Hmmmm.
Here are some new items we’ve acquired – some of which are already at the shop.
Painted bench with black, french theme, upholstered seat-
Fidelio Brewery NYC wooden beer box-
Kodak Tourist camera and case. (The case needs repair. Due to age the seams in the back have come apart).
Two paint by number dog prints-
A set of four, very cute Beatrix Potter needlepoint pictures-
Peter Rabbit and Mrs. Tittlemouse-
Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Benjamin Bunny-
A creamer and sugar set with initials and a shaker-
Seth Thomas mantel clock (inards have been removed and replaced with a battery run set of clock hands).
Rustic wooden letter “B” painted black-
Large vintage wooden picnic basket-
Very large, and heavy, Robbins & Myers fan. Needs rewiring.
Large magnifying glass with horn handle (2ft long)-
Small copper pitcher-
One very beatup, well used scale-
Victorian (Occupied Japan) Porcelain bowl with gold embellishments-
Set of 5 bottles (opps, we have the 5th stopper. Didn’t realize it was missing when taking the picture)-
And our best seller, the longitude / latitude pillows. We dropped this oversized black one at the shop today, and while we were there, a very nice person bought a Del Ray one.
