Our Spring Celebration

Sorry it's taken me so long to post on our Spring Celebration! It seems there are never enough hours in the day, so I put the blog on the back burner. I will try to get back into the swing of things!

A vintage porch swing looks so inviting, doesn't it?

Home Is Where Your Story Begins & Bark Cloth Pillows by Pam Small.



Our shopping bags were graced with a paper copy of the invitation.



The hydrangeas were blooming...



...and so were the tulips.



We unveiled our Spring window for all to enjoy. This window might be our all time favorite. We have received more positive comments from customers and passer byers than any other window. I wish it could stay all summer long!




Our first customers of the day!

Sweet Dana of Tutumonkey and her darling daughter Sarah.




Our antique iron crib was loaded with our newest pillows! Our very own Attic Girl Kandi got busy on the sewing machine and whipped up a stack of pillows on the crib from vintage ticking, Battenburg & Bark Cloth.

Pam Small has been the store's pillow maker for years, and she made a pair from a vintage dresser scarf. LOVE the birds and the embroidery. She also embroiders special sentiments on our pillows such as the one pictured on the swing. It says " Home Is Where Your Story Begins" You can meet Pam at the store on Saturday May 2nd, and she will be taking special orders that day!



The man behind the scenes (Jon) made us this potting bench and he recylced an old window. He does our painting and can make just about anything we ask! One of these days, I will have to get his picture for you.

Other new arrivals introduced were these french dancing girls on board.
There are 4 different ones, each priced separately but they look great as a group.


More bamboo mats arrived, just in the nick of time!






Tamerie was kind enough to model some of our vintage hats. She did ask me to add a disclaimer that she was not wearing a smidge of makeup...:)

Visit us at The Attic in Coronado. If you see anything that tickles your fancy, you may call us or email us for more information.

So festive and springy! Tamerie doesn't need any makeup if she looks that cute without! I'm loving those French dancer photos!

We love your shop and Sarah thought she was pretty special with all the extra attention (Balloon and cookie).

When we walk by your store Sarah says "Nice wady Mama...gave me a good cookie"......

You always have such fun items in your store....take care!

Such a CUTE front window- you outdid yourselves there. So many merchants do a shabby job on what can be a huge draw- GOOD WORK GIRLS! I too love the bird and blue combo pillow.
