Ahoy!


This 80 degree weather we're having in Boston immediately has me racing for nautical inspiration.
And, like clockwork, we received this FANTASTIC vintage photograph in the store this week.
This posed German sailor photograph measures 4x6. We date him around the early 1900s.
Retails: $35.

Grey Gardens!


I don't about you, but I am SO excited to watch the HBO premiere of Grey Gardens tomorrow night.
Somehow, I feel like THIS brooch from Erie Basin would have fit Little Edie perfectly in her heyday.

If you have not been to Erie Basin's website, please have a look.
(Click HERE for their site.)
It is a wonderfully, well-edited selection of vintage and antique jewelry.

Reflective Lighting Makes a Comeback




You may have noticed mirrored and chrome lighting popping up in your favorite design magazines lately. Originally popular in the 60's and 70's, the eye-catching, reflective effect of these fixtures has come back into style due to their ability to highlight a space or create a bold focal point. We have three fabulous options available at the store now.

The first is a chrome ball lamp c. 1960's. It is paired with a modern, black parchment paper drum shade. This lamp works perfectly and retails for $250. SOLD

The second lamp we have available is a mirror and brass c. 1970's. This lamp is also paired with a modern, black parchment paper drum shade. It is fully functioning and retails for $225.
