Coming August 29th


Mark Your Calendars! Saturday, August 29th, we will, once again, be having our "Antiques on the Lawn" show. We will try to "beat the heat" by starting at 8:00 am and running until 2:00 pm. We have gotten great feedback about the show from our customers - they just love shopping out under the big oak trees. Shoppers like to be here when the "doors open" to get the chance at picking up the best finds! Check out the pictures below of one of our earlier events.

Our yard is so big that it is hard
to capture exactly how much
"stuff" we have out there.

This shot shows one of our
"Bed Benches" which have
always sold as fast as we can
make them!

Here, check out our unique
"trellis". It was made with
three old doors, which we
always try to keep on hand.
That and old windows, and
old shutters, and old knobs,
and old chandeliers. . . .
Speaking of chandeliers . . .
did you see the one hanging
from the tree in the first photo? It went FAST!

This "bench" is an antique
iron baby crib that we have
bedecked with floral pillows
and covered the mattress in
one of our favorite colors -

We will be closed Friday, August 28th, in preparation for the big show. We have been "reinventing and recreating" some pretty unique items for you, as well as finishing up some old vintage and antique furniture projects.
Inside the cottage, we will be debuting a new "vintage french" line, and our fall decor - we think you will love it!

Look forward to seeing you on Saturday,
Mandy and Marci

Now Featuring . . . .

Soldered Charms at The Cottage!!!

We found this fabulous dealer at the Dallas Market who had some of the sweetest, cutest, most precious, soldered charms we have seen. Each one has an added bauble on the bottom. No two are alike, so you would be getting one of a kind jewelry at only $15.95 each. They look great on the white and black faux pearls we also found at market! Check out these pretties:
