What's it all about, Alfie??



When I first began the thought of this blog, my staff screamed out "Are you Crazy? Where would you find the time?".
The thought was to create an environment where our clients, customers and friends of Vintageweave could tune in to what we are up to and see new arrivals immediately. I'm constantly asked what I'm working on and my staff is always inundated with questions on where I am when I'm out of the boutique. Further, so many items arrive in the boutique and sell before we get an opportunity to get them up on the website.

It was never meant to be a design tutorial....more of a design inspiration....
....nor a political or personal forum.....I can always begin one of those LATER.....
It doesn't strive to win awards or cause controversy....
Given the opportunity it IS made to make you smile, laugh, drool and dream.
It is purely an extension of the Vintageweave boutique, design business, and website.

As it turns out updating a blog is FAR faster and easier to upload pictures and allows our regulars a solid look at new arrivals. This is a wonderful new advantage for those who aren't local and able to pop in the boutique several times a week (as many requlars do). So much of what we buy is sold prior to ever being loaded on the container (we have an extremely active WISH LIST, which travels with me at all times).

So, with that said....here are the latest and greatest shopping adventures and acquisitions. A particular source I buy from is as nice as nice can be, which always makes the treasure hunting that much more fun! Let us know if anything strikes your fancy.....these will likely never make it to the website....















Once the unpacking of the container is done, I'll be back in a couple of days.....

I'd love to take one of everything, but instead will settle for my chairs! I can't wait for the pair of bergere chairs from Vintageweave to arrive!!!!! I'm also loving the cane ones shown here.

KATH-I REALLY LOVE THE URN (1st pic). PART OF A PAIR I HOPE? I'm interested. You have my contact info (I will email U now). Also curious if the cane (chair) is old and a pair.

Girl, Girl, Girl! I dig on that iron scroll front with marble on top. Is that an entry table or dining? I'm afraid but need a price so I will email you. Oh my wallet and husband curse you with this monthly habit at Vintage Weave. :)

Jackie said...

Such beautiful pictures! I'm interested in the size (and price) of the chandelier in the 2nd picture (in front of the white window frame). Love seeing all of your treasures!

Jackie said...

Sorry - I guess the chandelier is in the 3rd picture (though if you have info on the onces in the 2nd picture, let me know...). Thanks!
