Jean's Pick

From time to time our furniture guru, Jean, will spotlight one of our favorite pieces of furniture in the store. Her first pick is this,

an amazing, slightly curved, three drawer chest with bun feet.

The manufacture took it's inspiration when creating this line, from the offices of architects of a bygone era. The collection is made of 90% reclaimed pine, making it a ecochic product.

The collection features an array of occasional pieces in a stripped down and raw finish. We carry several other pieces, equally as beautiful as this.

The exact chest was discovered in the on-line Horchow Catalog (listed as the Hazel chest) for $1699.00 plus $130. for shipping, but our price is much lower at a little over $1300.00, and guess what? No shipping!

The chest is 36" high, 50" wide and 36" deep. It's a savings of nearly $500.00 any way you look at it!

We're Ready!

Tomorrow is our annual Holiday Open House. Most of the decorating is complete, so I thought it would be fun to show you the before and after images. We began decorating in late September in the area toward the back of the store. The ornaments, trees, and other holiday decor began arriving in the summer and we started the unpacking. By September the merchandise was moved to our Christmas area where we begin unloading it from the crates and carts. The area was blocked off during this time so our shoppers would be surprised when we opened about a month later.  

Here is a before picture of one of the walls when the decorating began.
And here it is completed!

Again, here is the before.

And now.

These small trees will soon brighten the room.


This is one of our many large trees. As you can tell, it needs help.
Done. So beautiful!

We hope to see you soon!
