Follow where?!!

Fun vintage metal sign just arrived to the shop..we have NO clue as to who it originally belonged to, but we had to have it! Do you have any ideas on the origin of a sign like this? We'd love to know. :) A customer said when asked, we should just say it means Follow Me on Facebook! lol

Antique Surveyor's Tripod

Sorry, I'm Sold!

This antique surveyor's tripod is way cool. I love it when they are repurposed into a floor lamp, as shown here. We're selling it as found so you can decide. For now, it makes the perfect hat stand.

Our Very First Annie Sloan Makeover!

This past Saturday, Kandi attended a chalk paint class given by Susan Darnell at Vignettes in Ocean Beach. We forgot to take a "before" shot, but I did find an image online that was very close to what it looked like. Kandi did an amazing job! If you are interested in taking a class in San Diego, or purchasing the Annie Sloan paint, just visit Susan's blog HERE


This is close to what the piece looked like before the magic happened!

A Few New Goodies...

We have lots of NEW old goodies this week after a recent estate sale here in Coronado. We'll be bringing in items over the next few weeks and I'll add pics as soon as I can.

A recent arrival - very cool wood trunk in that green! Add some feet or large casters for a coffee table!

Fun Junk : Old game board, tennis rackets and our last industrial wire cubby shelf! Love these.

Antique toy baby buggy & ironing board set. Adorbs!

We also have the cutest Tom Thumb toy cash register..forgot to photograph!

Celebrating 3 Years & A Grand Opening

The Attic turned 3 today!

Our original plan was to celebrate our 3rd anniversary at Tenth Street and the Grand Opening of our second location on Orange this month, but we had a slight delay..We have been working on plans and permits with the city for a new awning and signage...these things take more time than we anticipated, and we really want the shop to be in tippy-top shape for the big event! It will be worth the wait, we promise!

Stay tuned..we'll announce the Party Date soon! Hopefully sometime in November. :)

What's Your Style?

Stop by to see our latest arrivals in hats..too many to show here, but we have something for everyone!

The cloche hat is my absolute favorite style of hats. These hats were very popular during the 1920s-30's, and I'm glad to see they have made a comeback over the last few years. These wool cloches will keep your noggin warm this winter.

We just received our first order of these slouchy beanies and they are almost gone! We should be receiving more soon, but for now, we have charcoal, olive and black. All the cool cats wear these!

The Fedora...what a hit this hat has been this year!
