New Treasures at Veranda Antiques

Last time I was at Veranda Antiques, there was a whole lot of “moving and shaking” going on! Tom and Dave have moved their space and it is amazing! Trust me, when I say my top notch photography does not do their space, formerly the kitchen in this cottage, justice! Lora, the high priestess, is […]

Shopping for the Shop

I was happy to hear that my hot pink desk set has found a new home! In a color like hot pink, you never know if someone else will love it as much as you do! A few of my gift show orders have come in and I placed another order today! Sort of like […]

How to Make a Simple Fall Wreath

Hello Dear Blog Sisters!, First of all, a big thank you to everyone who gave me the positive feedback about seagrass. I’m ready to place my order! This is that the style I decided to go with… I understand that it comes from Georgia and that since the trucks are taking longer to fill these […]

New at Veranda Antiques

Hello again! If you’re a lover of all things French, we have a new beauty, staying with us! From the late 1800’s, this amazing 12-light crystal chandy has been well cared for and in near-perfect condition. There are still crystals to be hung, but trust me, when I say this piece is truly stunning! These […]

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

When we were kids, my older sister and I would have beauty contests! Of course, being the oldest, she was also the judge! We would stand in front of the mirror, striking our most glamorous poses, that an eight-year-old could manage, before she was judged to be the most beautiful! We still laugh about those […]

My Deal of the Week!

This week, I made a great find, at Veranda Antiques, of course! Having 6 sets of china, purchased or passed on to us by family, we certainly didn’t need another, but these were too great a deal to pass up and I love them! Just the dinner plates, TWELVE of them, for $90.00!! they’re great […]

New at Veranda, This Week

Hello there!, Today’s my day, to toil at Veranda Antiques. And of course I always like to check out the new additions to our inventory! Let me show you around. Lora found these beauties. Old candelabras that are turn of the century, and would look great anywhere, especially the garden. I’d guess they were spending […]

Back to the Work Shop

We had a great weekend at Veranda Antiques! Between yesterday’s parking lot sale and customers buying at Veranda, I had better get back to painting and sourcing more treasures! That’s a good thing! We brought my console table, that I painted with ASCP old white, clear waxed, with a bit of dark wax in the […]

Where Did the Week Go?

This week passed so quickly, I’m not sure it really happened. The good news is that it started at the Sacramento Antique Fair on Sunday and I found a number of cool things for the shop, including this old rectangular mirror, shutters and large candle holders. I squeezed in some Craig’s list shopping.. Doesn’t everyone […]

At Veranda Antiques, this Week

Hello there!, Well it’s been a while since I’ve showed you around the cottage. There are some wonderful things I’d like to share with you. And if you don’t live in town and if it’s shippable, have no fear, FedEx is here! Linda found this wonderful antique birdcage, that’s in perfect condition. $175 Lora’s new […]

Back in the Saddle

Something crazy happened while I was away! The jeans hanging in my closet somehow got a little bit smaller! Or, was I eating just a little bit more? The last night in our hotel we celebrated our goodbyes, while enjoying yet another feast. I’ve never had asparagus served as an appetizer with an egg, but […]
