My Oh My

Just a few Judy Ross pillows left and I have decided to sell them at HALF OFF to make way for some lovely Trina Turk pillows and new Design Legacy pillow goodness that is arriving ever so soon to the store.

Typically, Judy's pillows retail for $185- but we will be selling her pieces at $95 until Sunday. So stop by and scoop them up. We're down to five pillows left.

**And good news for out-of-town readers, we will ship these anywhere in the U.S. of A.**

Feel like a kid again

When I first was designing the interior/exterior look of ACQUIRE, one of the first decisions was putting a planter box above my door's shop sign.

Unfortunately winter came quick to Boston and I haven't been able to plant anything in the planter until today!

The planter box is a good nine feet from the ground, so it took a TALL ladder and a nice guy from the hardware shop down the street to get all of my Persian ivy into the box. The funny part is that I am not a fan of heights, so climbing up a tall enough ladder to constantly water the plants is probably not going to happen. Plus, there is no tap outside the store to run a hose. SO....I will be watering the plants with one of these bad boys...

I LOVE my new "Quick Blast" super soaker!! First off, it's HUGE (it holds a liter of water) and mine is electric blue!! Amazing.

If you come in and ask me nicely, I'll let you try out the new watering toy too.

A Sneak Peek...

One of the latest items to arrive at ACQUIRE is this FABULOUS industrial factory cart. The cart dates from the late 1800s and has been fully restored. It measures 48" wide x 16" high x 29" deep. The perfect size for a coffee table!

Antiques & Vintage Galore!

FYI: The store will be closed tomorrow so that we can pickup a HUGE shipment of antiques and vintage products for the store. And, we'll also be visiting Brimfield tomorrow for the start of the antiquing season!
If you stop by ACQUIRE on Wednesday, expect to see great industrial pieces, vintage barware, new artwork and even some amazing antique jewelry finds.

Happy Spring Shopping!
