Recycling Old Windows

Old windows are often tossed out when homeowners remodel, so it's always nice to find a new use for this coat/hat rack. Pegs were added to hold your tote, dog leash or hat!
The addition of the 2 shelves are perfect for keys or a favorite collection. We also have a larger 6 pane window with pegs available which is not pictured.

These old frames were made from old redwood trim which came out of an old home in Coronado. They are quite large and hold 8 x 10 photos.

This last piece was not made by us, but by the uber talented Ms. Rita Reade! Is there no end to this girls talent and energy?!! She solders, paints, and she's a wood worker! She makes beautiful bird houses and these greenhouses from old windows! The roof was cut off in this photo, but take my word for it. This piece was awesome, although it's sold. Maybe you can convince her to make another! Visit her blog and say hello...just CLICK HERE.

The Man Bench

Has Arrived!
It was time to spruce up the old bench in front of the shop, so we sent it off for face lift. We had it painted to match our awning. We love it...and so do the men. :)

Special Delivery From Rita

Look who came to visit us... none other than the sweet & talented, Rita Reade. Rita delivered our second order of signs to us last week, and we're practically sold out already! We have been keeping her very if she doesn't have enough to do :) Rita came with her son and sister in law, Christie Repasy. Christie took this photo and then the battery died or I would have taken another of us all.. :( They are selling this Sunday in Roseville at the Roseville Spring Antique Market. Just click here to see what it's all about!

Be sure to visit her blog to see all of her beautiful creations and her busy schedule! She travels to many markets and also teaches soldering classes. You can view all of her future shows on the left hand side of her blog.

Thank you Rita...for being such a great friend, and for personally delivering our signs!

Vintage Lighting

Decorating with vintage lighting has become increasingly popular in recent years. We have many customers looking for that "special" chandelier for their bedroom, dressing area, bath and even kitchen. We are seeing more chandeliers over the kitchen island or sink, and I think think it's a fantastic way to dress up your kitchen!

The Attic has a great selection of table lamps, floor lamps and chandeliers.
These are just a few that are currently available in the store.

It was time...

... to dress the window again, and we think it turned out pretty darn cute!
(if you can get past that darn reflection of the street and cars in the window!)

We added an adorable antique twin bed,(sorry, bed has been sold) vanity and nightstand, along with a few of our favorite accent pieces. Makes me wish I had a little girl again!

We have received a few inquiries on the large wooden wings. If you are interested in purchasing them, please ring us during regular business hours. We are expecting our shipment in early May. Thank you!
