may at the west end garage

May is here! May is here!

This might be one of my favorite months in Cape May, although it is really hard to be that decisive.  May brings the return of the hydrangeas, bumble bees, hot sunny days followed by cool sandy sunsets.  It also brings back full-time, in-season schedules for all of my favorite stores and restaurants.  This beach town is back for yet another season!

At The West End Garage, we put together a Mother’s Day window display with my favorite bentwood rocker and a vintage pram that is in pristine condition among other vintage mother and baby accessories.

WEG-6707

The pram is priced way undervalue so if you’ve been on the hunt for one, now is a great time to scoop it up!  It makes the perfect prop for a children’s boutique or baby photographer.

We have plenty of Mother’s Day gift ideas in stock so bring your mama to the beach this weekend.

Be sure to visit The West End Garage on Saturday for a milk paint demo.  I’ll be there to answer questions!

hello, chestnut hill

Clover Market spring season kicks off on Sunday in Chestnut Hill. We’ll be there!

Clover spring

I’m in the midst of packing, pricing and staging some never seen before vintage treasures.  And let me tell you, they’re fabulous!  You can expect a whole lot of whimsy this spring…nothing too serious.  Except for the Pope who is serious, indeed.  Must have.  And how about those milk glass tea party cups & saucers?

Check in on facebook and instagram later this week to see what else we’re bringing to Clover Market in Chestnut Hill.

Speaking of Chestnut Hill…

Have you heard about Serendipity Shops of Chestnut Hill yet?  It is right around the corner and we have Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in stock!  Stay tuned for pictures and details as we get settled into our new space.  In the meantime, check it out for yourself on Sunday.

 

 

 

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.
