Christmas is coming!

You may perhaps not want to think about Christmas… but we do!

Mrs. Nicholson Home will soon be closing for the season so you might want to think about popping in for some early Christmas shopping.

We have lots of interesting things that would make unique Christmas gifts.

We also have our Christmas collection of Michel Design Works soaps, tea towels, matches, coasters and napkins in, all ready to be tucked away for gift giving in a few short months.

Quantities are limited and all vintage items are one of a kind so it is a good time to visit.

Hope to see you soon.

A surprise note in the placemats

Once upon a time Grace gave these placemats to Marg as a retirement gift.

She wrote this little text and set it in the box. When ? We have no idea. Do we know these ladies ? No, but we appreciate the sentiment and thought we would share.

The note reads:

——-

Dear Marg,

When you retire you will learn
Too many possessions can cause you concern.
Whatever you do, travel near or far,
Golf or play bridge, or run a bazaar;
You’ll always be eating while on the go
And tablecloths get soiled as you very well know.
So the enclosed may help your table to dress
And save you the trouble of having to press.

Congratulations and Best Vishes.

Grace

——–

It doesn’t look like Grace ever did use the placemats so maybe she did prefer tablecloths after all.

We are thrilled to be able to welcome Leslie Lawrence to Mrs. Nicholson Home for a pop-up antique jewelry sale during Arts Unleashed! on August 27th.

Leslie Lawrence has worked in the jewellery industry for many years. Many of you will recognize her from her years as manager and buyer at FireWorks Gallery in Halifax.
Retirement has found Leslie back in Annapolis Royal where, as a child, she developed a passion
for antique jewellery while accompanying her parents on their search for antique furniture.
Her search has never stopped as she has been collecting period jewellery for over forty five years.


Come join us on Saturday August 27th for her Pop Up at Mrs. Nicholson Home and see her recent shipment of Antique British Gold and Sterling Silver Jewellery.
