We have a brooch and a pair of earrings in the store… for the moment!

Old lamps – new home!

As you know, we love to see our pieces in their new setting once they leave Mrs. Nicholson Home.

This pair of absolutely fabulous vintage lamps with their original shades were in the store last year.

Now they reside in Alberta in Jessica’s newly renovated dining room and are a perfect addition to her decor!

Thanks for sharing, Jessica.
