LAST DAY SATURDAY, SEPT. 23

We can’t believe it is our last day of Mrs. Nicholson Home!

We’ve had such a great time with you all over the past six years.

Thanks for the support and for all the fun.

There are still lots of things in the store to see tomorrow, including all those lamps :-)

And we will have lemon cake (thanks to Lola’s Cafe) and lemonade from 1 to 3 so come on in and say hello and goodbye!

Thanks for the memories!
Jane and Christine

OUR LAST WEEK!

Sad but true…

We will be closing Mrs. Nicholson Home on Saturday, September 23rd.

We are still bringing in new vintage items from our warehouse – all at 50% off so there will still be lots of “new to you” items to see up until our last day.

Come and say good-bye and have a piece of “thank you” cake.

We would love to see you!

Jane and Christine

Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone!

Sale continues with new items arriving!

Don’t think you have missed out on all the “best bits” just because the sale started last Saturday!

Jane and I are busy emptying our storage facilities and new and interesting pieces are coming to the store every day.

All at 50% off the ticketed price.

See new pictures on the In Store Now page!

Vintage Chalet and Lorraine glass

We love the glow and sparkle of all this beautiful, heavy glass.

Chalet was in business from 1962 to 1975. They had a factory in Cornwall, Ontario.

Three master glass artisans from Venice: Angelo Tedesco, Luigi Tedesco and Sergio Pagnin founded the factory. As business flourished, they hired more glassblowers.

As Conrad Biernacki writes in an article on this glass “The jewel tones of Chalet Glass caught everyone’s attention in the 1960s.The brilliant transparent colours were delightfully appealing”.. Without the use of moulds, no two examples were perfectly identical… The final free-form result was so fluid that it could nobly be described as a flight of the imagination”.

Biernacki goes on to explain why one could and might collect Chalet glass now:

1. Design historians appreciate its originality in shape and colour.

2. They complement a retro decor.

3. Chalet and Lorraine glass are represented in the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum.

We think it is just gorgeous and are happy to have these pieces all from the same collector.
