Dreaming of a White Christmas


It may be in the 80's, but we can still dream of a white Christmas here in sunny Coronado. We've decorated the shoppe with lots of white, pastels and glitter. Our entry display table is filled with vintage ornaments from the 1940's and 50's. I love to hear customers reminisce when they see these old familiar ornaments.

Our smaller display window above, features out mascot mannequin which we have affectionately named, "Addie" The plan was to have her balance a stack of wrapped presents in her hand, but she didn't cooperate, so she holds a list instead. :)



She's modeling her Chic Happens shirt from our sister store Vignettes, a rhinestone embellished stocking hat, rhinestone sunglasses, and the cutest darn pink elf shoes I've ever seen, thanks to Jenna.



Jenna spent over 2 hours on these boots, since she did not have her sewing machine handy. The felt and trimming was all hot glued together. I treated her to a Starbuck's Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, but I think I will be paying for this in other ways! :) Addie holds her list of gift giving ideas in style.


Our main display window features a pretty french gray desk, a beautiful fireplace mantle and our darling little desk with bookcase. White candles on mirrors, glass domed stands covering vintage gold and silver ornaments and lots of crystal.



Our Holiday Open House will be here soon, so mark your calendars for Friday December 5th from 6-9pm. We are open 7 days a week from 10-5:30, so stop by anytime!
