An Attic Update

I was down at the shoppe today, and luckily I remembered my camera! The shoppe is looking great and we have new items coming in 2-3 times a week.This is my first in a weekly series of posting new arrivals. If you see anything that moves you, just drop us an email or phone us at 619-435-5614, and we would be happy to get you measurements and a price. We can ship smaller items, but furniture would be pick up only.

This high boy with mirror is awesome! I wish I had room in my bedroom for it. I love this one of a kind crown that was embellished with seashells by Kandy, the crafty Attic Girl. :)

Love the little side table in French gray paint. So light and small, you can pick it up and take it wherever you need a little table to set a drink and small plate on.

A darling metal cherub lamp with the sweetest shade EVER! Original chippy paint on the cherub...just charming.

We have a few silk pillows with rhinestone crowns on the front. We have black, light brown and pale green.

We have two great storage in natural stained finish(JUST SOLD!), and the other is painted cottage white. The white one would make a great scrap booking organizer for papers!

Things have been moving quickly , so run, don't walk to The Attic!

The Attic In Coronado Is Now Open!

Our grand opening was a huge success! We saw many old friends and met many new. We enjoyed catching up with so many you, and look forward to seeing you again. The Attic girls wore our sister shoppe tees from Vignettes and had to have a picture taken with Vignettes shoppe owner, Lori. She's the best and you must visit her when in town!

The Attic Grand Opening

The windows are washed, the floor is waxed and everything is priced. We will be open for business at 10am tomorrow! We've had a great response from the locals passing by the door and getting a peek preview. Lots of ooohs and ahhhs. I will have the pictures up soon for all to see. I wish all of my blogging buddies could be here to share in the fun.

Taking Shape!

The new shoppe is taking shape with our last delivery of furniture due tomorrow. We have all been planning and putting in many hours, but I know it will all be worth it!
Our grand opening is scheduled just one week from tomorrow. I have taken a few pictures, but I decided I would rather keep it a secret and share them when we're ready to open. I've received a few emails from friends asking for pictures as it progresses, and I promise share those after we open. :)
When we first started moving furniture in, I actually thought we might not have enough to fill it, but I've come to realize that's not the case! If anyone is planning to visit us October 18th, drop me an email, but we'll be open daily from
10-5:30 in case you can't make it for the opening.

The Attic Is Back...well, almost!

A shoppe is born again, with a new energy and excitement in the air! Three friends have joined together to bring you the best we can find. Jane, Nancy and Kandy will be the the smiling faces to welcome you into our shoppe. Searching and finding the best vintage furniture and home decor is our passion,and what better way to satisfy our urge to shop, than to open up our own little shoppe to share our finds with you!

The Attic is located in beautiful Coronado, just minutes from downtown San Diego. The Attic was originally located on Coronado's main street Orange Ave., from 1997 to 2007. It was sold in 2007, but Jane never gave up the dream of having her own shoppe someday. Her dream became a reality in September and we will open the doors on Saturday October 18th, just steps around the corner from the old shop at 1112 10th St.

If you are planning a visit to Coronado, it will be easy to spend a day there. We have a gorgeous beach, the historic Hotel Del and numerous restaurants and shops. It's easy to spend an entire day here but we must warn may never want to leave.

What you'll find when you visit our shoppe~
Antique & Vintage Furniture
Vintage & New Home Decor
Architectural & Garden
Hand Poured Soaps, Soy Candles , Pillows & Jewelry

Our inventory will be changing daily, so stop in as often to see what we have in store for you! Photos will be added to the blog every Monday or Tuesday to show you our latest finds. Open daily 10-5:30pm
