Lighting Up The Attic

We purchased some fantastic vintage lighting this week... A total of 9 new chandeliers and lamps are waiting to be seen at The Attic! Stop by to see our collection today. You can click on any image to enlarge.
My favorite is this marriage of a vintage glass arm chandelier with a tole floral top. It wants to come home with me, but do I have a spot for it? No :(

This fabulous chandelier was placed in our front window..original cream paint, lightly dusted with hints of gold and LOADED with crystals! I don't think it will last! It's my second favorite. We just don't find these everyday.

This pretty white one was dripping with crystals. It sold the day after we hung it!
I will share the others with you in a few days. We have a matching pair of petite chandeliers which are a rare find, a cream tole floor lamp and desk lamp, a white roses Italian told lamp and the tiniest chandelier I have EVER seen...I will take pictures tomorrow..stay tuned!

It Was Meant To Be...


One day last week, this vintage wood Letterpress Block Set came into the shop.

I had just placed it on an old drop front desk and I decided to flip over the X and O for a photo for the blog post. Within 30 minutes of setting it down, Daniel & Bernadette walked in the store. They were visiting from San Francisco and just the sweetest couple. She kept repeating how much she loved everything! Then he saw IT..the Letter Press Set. As he was admiring it, she could see how he loved it and when I heard her say to him, "you love it, don't you"...her words made me smile. They told me they were engaged to be married in August, and he wanted to use it to make their table place setting cards. What fun! So after they made their purchase, I asked if I could take their picture for the blog. We look forward to their next visit to The Attic and wish them both a lifetime of happiness*

These are the kind of memories that make me realize
how much I love doing what I do!

Repurposed Baby Buggy!

One day last month, the Attic Girls were going through our items in storage and someone pulled out a broken down leather baby buggy. There was talk about making it into a planter to sit in front of our store everyday, and then someone suggested leaving it in the alley for someone to possibly pick up! I really wanted to keep it...for what, I had no idea at that moment. Then after surfing blogs, I saw a photo of a smaller doll buggy that someone had added a shelf to, and it inspired me! Jane took it home to Jon and look at what we made! A rolling coffee this not the neatest thing on wheels?!! It's CRAZY cute, and after being in the front window for just ONE day, it sold, today!
Here's another darling little oak chest with mirror that only lasted 2 days in the glad I snapped this picture the day it arrived. It was adorable and so tiny!

New Arrivals!
$59 (Available in store or we can ship anywhere in the USA)


We have them in all shapes, sizes and colors. The first 2 pictured are available in a vintage gold finish or rusty crusty finish. Love the fun flag on top! You can have a lot of fun with these...check out the photo below to see what a very craft person came up with! I found this photo on the web, wish I could give credit where credit is due! If you know, let me know and I will post it. Not sure it's the same cage, but it's very similar in design and I love the way they electrified it!

We also have a few vintage bird cages in the shop...hope to have pics of them for you soon!

Made In The U.S.A.&hearts

Here at The Attic, our favorite things seem to be from our local artists in California, and acquaintances we've made through blogging across the miles. When you purchase handmade, you are supporting the indie crafters and their families. What could be better? Customers have told us that they love unique handmade items and knowing they they won't be seeing the same thing in every shop in town. We love that fact too!

Like these fabulous cuffs with crosses, religious medals & crowns

Hand painted signs & pillows

Our favorite cotton towels for kitchen or bath.
The one above makes for a darling little kitchen valance!

Beautifully engraved vintage spreaders. (Email us for custom request)

Re purposed Silverware letter openers, Wine Stops, Spoon Earrings & Pendants.
