Bethany fell in love with a sweet piece of vintage Beauceware pottery from Quebec.
And when she sent us this picture of the piece in her home, we could easily see why.
The Beauceware pottery looks right at home with all of Bethany’s colours and right beside the vintage Marilyn Monroe postcard.
Thanks for allowing us to post, Bethany!
Purchased from Mrs. Nicholson Home.
It was just wonderful to hear Kaffe Fassett talk last night in Sandy Cove about colour and design inspiration.
I took this photo in our shop this morning thinking of all the colours and how happy they make us all.

Pair of pink lamps $195/pair

Isn’t this gorgeous ?
It’s a fabulous colour of green and white and black and we love the double row of chrome with the balls in between. The table is in perfect vintage condition.
We have four chairs to go with it. One is in great condition, one is faded and the two others have tears. They can all be redone – or pair it with the Windsor chairs we also have for sale ($60 each).
Chrome table and four chairs $675
An outstanding chrome table.
Beautiful shape and colour. It comes with four chairs.
One is great condition, one faded and two with tears.
Really gorgeous! SOLD
One of the chairs. So sweet.
Just new in the store today is this fabulous set of four TV trays with illustrations by Frank M. Hamilton.
They represent the four seasons: Spring Rains, Gone for the Summer, Autumn Harvest and Deep Winter. They date to 1970 and come with their original stand.
They are in excellent vintage condition with no tears or scratches. Practical and sturdy!
$115 set. Very collectible and hard to find.
Spring and summer scenes.
Fall and winter scenes.
Way back in 1993, I was living in France.
This chair belonging to my mother in law was destined for destruction. I rescued it and upholstered it. It comes with two feather filled pillows.
It’s very comfy and would be great in a corner of any room!
Vintage armchair. Re-upholstered by Christine in 1993. Comes with two cushions $175
Yoda found a new spot this morning.
Isn’t he cute curled up on our vintage hankies and table napkins?
Yoda (NFS) curled up on the vintage hankies and tea towels.
“Maritime Rose” is one of my most favourite Spode patterns. Manufactured from the mid-50s to the early 70s, its beautiful violet blue colour and hand painted roses make it very collectible.
These pieces belonged to a lovely woman who liked to entertain and did so frequently, so this is all that’s left of her set of dishes, which came to me 20 years ago. The sugar bowl, creamer, water jug, tea cup, saucers and cake plates are all perfect. The teapot has a line crack and a chip at the end of the spout, the salad plate has a tiny flaw, and one of the butter pats has discolouration to the gold trim, but they are still pretty and perfectly useable.
“Maritime Rose” pieces now fetch high prices on replacement china pattern sites. If you collect this, you know what I mean! Our prices are very reasonable.
Aunt Shirley’s legacy SOLD
Yoda was back in today and he has found a new place to sleep!
He just seems to know when a new comfy bit comes into the store.
What a cat!
Yoda (NFS) and the purple quilt from the 1960s. Locally made. Double. $150
