We’re stocked with lots of other summer goodies.  Except for the little table pictured which was painted in a custom mixed blue and sold almost immediately.  Don’t worry – I’ll tell you how you can paint your own and cross it off of your summer bucket list!

See you Sunday.


Happy spring!  Can you believe we are approaching May already?

Earlier this week we migrated to a new space at Serendipity Shops of Doylestown.  Check out our evolving selection of vintage home & garden just as you walk in.  Can’t find Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in the old space?  Look no further, it is just beyond the front door.  We are fully stocked and ready for your spring projects!  Now for some eye candy…

We’re still settling into Serendipity’s new location in Chestnut Hill but this weekend is a great time to visit.  Sunday is Chestnut Hill’s Garden Festival!  We’re stocked with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in the new location as well.  (See addresses and hours below.)

spring happenings

Spring is just around the corner!  My favorite time of year.  Everyone comes out of hibernation.  Daffodils begin to emerge.  The days continue to get longer.  We start freshening up our porches and outdoor spaces while confirming summer vacation plans.  Oh the prospect of the season ahead.  It is so exciting, isn’t it?

We’ve made a few plans of our own.  Circa Dee is heading to Clover Market this spring.  We’re keeping it small and sharing space with In With The Old at 2 of the 4 spring markets.  We’ve been stashing vintage finds for Clover Market all winter long.  It is going to be fantastic and I can’t wait to see YOU.

Expect to find Circa Dee and In With The Old at the season opener in Chestnut Hill on Sunday, April 12th.  And the season closer on Sunday, June 7th in Bryn Mawr – note the new location.  You can check out all of the market details here.

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, we’ve added another retail location.  I am happy to announce that Circa Dee has taken up space in a very new co-op boutique in downtown Doylestown, Bucks County.  It is indeed so new that the marketplace just opened today!

This is no April Fool’s Day joke…

Be sure to stop in on Friday evening for a grand opening party.


Serendipity consists of about 20 adorable shops operating as one boutique including some of my ol’ favorites – In With the Old, Penelope & Anastasia, Shea’s Closet, The Painted Home, Sweet Magnolia & Cafe Tuscany.  You’ll find everything from new clothing to baby gifts, painted furniture & vintage treasures to handmade jewelry, prints and milk paint!

That’s right – we have Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint available at this new location.


There are lots of Circa Dee staples there including mason jar soap dispensers, Swiss army blankets, reclaimed wood frames, mason shakers, milk paint and more.  I am working on getting the space stocked up with additional one of a kind vintage treasures for your perusal.


Check it out!

It is shaping up to be a busy, busy spring around here already.  I will be back later this week with a complete schedule of Circa Dee dates & events.  In the meantime, there is still space available for the milk paint workshop if you’d like to join us…
