Hot Tea for a Rainy Day

Brighten your day with this snappy print from NOW Design. It’s HIGH TIME for Teatime!

It’s “High Time for Teatime”

So says our new tea linen collection from NOW Designs.  This sprightly print just introduced features an emerald green and crisp navy with just a spot of “tea”-shaded amber.  What happy colors to wake up to in your kitchen or cozy up to as you enjoy a cuppa before retiring.

Enjoy a satisfying tea break during your day with the many choices we offer.  Warming “Hot Cinnamon Sunset” is back in stock as is the favored “Tower of London”.  These and many other Harney & Sons teas are ready to pluck off the shelves today.

Choose your favorite tea from our selection of best selling blends from Harney & Sons and Queen Mary’s Royal Teas.

Open Tuesday – Sunday 11-5


Autumn on the INSIDE

These won’t last. . .

Just onesies left on many of our terrific Halloween decor items. Don’t wait! Here, the “humerus couple” awaits the spooky night. $28.50 by RAZ.

Come in now to choose Halloween decor!  From Bethany Lowe’s little stars, tinseled disk ornaments or tiny glass lanterns to decorate a centerpiece tree to our creepy owl “molds”, this seasonal inventory is disappearing daily.  Fun ribbons in die-cut pumpkins, black/white stripes or tiny black/orange checks give you inspiration to create fun crafts and gifts.

Little cardboard ‘treat’ boxes by Bethany Lowe are fun decor to hang or fill them with Halloween candy. Nostalgic designs are copies of old boxes.

Stop in today or during the week ahead!

Open Tuesday through Sunday, 11-5

Add Something Spooky!

Halloween colors of black and orange play well against this hopsack tablecloth in an acorn design by April Cornell. It’s finished off with gray cotton removable tassels, 48″ square $38.95.

October is the month of leaves turning bright oranges, days of sunshine and showers and night times crisp and maybe a little SPOOKY!  Halloween decor is popping up everywhere and is moving quickly OUT our doors.

Bethany Lowe’s delightful nostalgic images include our sweet little girl witch figure ($26.50), glittered disk ornaments, orange tinsel ribbon, tiny glass lanterns and black and orange stars to hang on your centerpiece tree branches.  Some crazy owls by RAZ include the ones pictured above on our masthead as well as one we refer to as the ‘Maltese Falcon’, creepy enough to find a good spot in your haunty decor!

Stop in soon!  Open Tuesday – Sunday 11-5
