I've just added this cool antique English dog, greyhound or hunting hound knife rest. It has a riding crop for a bar and was made in England 1890-1910. I just fell in love with it when I saw it and HAD to have it!

You can see it at:
Time Was Antiques

Lots more fun things to list, so I'd better get going but wanted to post this great victorian gadget to keep the table clean.

Just Added--Fab Wedgwood vases

I just LOVE these vases!!!! Part of the first lot from my recent buying trip. I have just added a two 6.5 inch high Wedgwood, England glazed cream ware or Queens Ware vases made in the 1950s. One is marked 1952 and the other 1956. They have the applied blue grape and grapevine border are are in excellent condition.

I love ANY color, as long as it's blue, and have since I was a child. I like other colors, but I LOVE blue, and especially blue and white. These Wedgwood vases are really superb!

Unpacking is such fun. I can hardly wait to see what's next!

Weather this Memorial Day weekend is perfect. We have been doing some planting, weeding and generally enjoying being outside for breaks from working on the shop.

Now it's time for a snack and then back to work! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks to all those who have served or are serving to keep our country free. God bless you!

We have just returned from our annual spring buying trip with lots of fun items English antiques and collectibles. Some we carried home, but most will be arriving next week.

We will start adding new items to our websites today, and just keep adding as they arrive. We acquired Shelley China, Wedgwood, English real photo postcards, tea caddy spoons, teacups, linens, Crested China, Mottoware, horse brasses, costume jewelry, toast racks, knife rests and much more.

It's just like Christmas...opening the cartons & oohing & ahhing because you've forgotten you got it. It is SUCH FUN!!!!

So, as we ad we'll highlight special finds here as well.
A wonderful & successful trip but it WAS so nice to sleep in our own beds with our own pillows....and our cat either next to or on top of us.

It's a beautiful spring day here on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington state and my DH is mowing the lawn. We'll take a walk later and savor the beauty of spring. Have a great day!
