Beat a quick path to our jewelry counters where we’re stocked with a large selection of vintage style necklaces, earrings and some great pins!

Sweet Romance Jewelry, designed by Shelley Cooper and handmade in California is also proudly showing many of these great Art Deco styled pieces in Woody Allen’s new movie “Cafe Society”. 

Not only are they hard to tell on the big screen from their original inspirational period styles, but they are ALSO hard to tell when viewed on you.  (Only, you won’t FIND these kinds of pieces in the old!)

Many of the necklaces are in the longer lengths which are terrific as a statement to wear with sweaters and shirts or to build layers of your favorite necklaces.

The top necklace at the left with its long, skinny pendant is an Art Deco style which is easy for anyone to wear and is a very new look for all of us.

The collection has pieces in both antiqued silver or antiqued bronze finishes.  Pearls, Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, cast and enameled details, easy to fasten clasps and classy looks are all hallmarks of Shelley’s fabulous designs.

Unbelievable prices, too!  Earrings from $18.95 and necklaces $36-65.

Long necklaces with lots of style are important fashion features this fall.  By Sweet Romance.

One day it’s a scorching 97 degrees and next it’s that mellow weather we Oregonians prefer – a few raindrops (which will quickly ‘green up’ our grasses) and cloud cover to send the kids back to school in their new outfits!

Redress your home this month with colors that speak of this seasonal change.  We’ve lovely greens that make that warm to cool (and back to warm again) transition like “Nature Study” shown here by April Cornell.  Velvet pumpkins, branches of bright orange/copper bittersweet and collectible Halloween pieces by Bethany Lowe are in now.

There’s a reason that we tend to go back to the venerable brands – their high quality and value!  Are you having a challenge finding Crabtree & Evelyn?  (Now that shopping malls no longer bring in the customers they once did, many stand -alone C & E stores have closed.)

Crabtree & Evelyn’s motto, based on the writings of 18th century essayist/naturalist John Evelyn is, “Explore everything, keep the best.”  Manufactured in England and New England, USA, these are the highest quality products – fragrances and moisturizing properties that last an entire day.  (You don’t think this is a big deal?  Try other, more expensive, products out there for ‘staying power’.)

Stop in for your favorite products such as the amazing Hand Therapy Cream, soap, lotions and gift sets in Evelyn Rose, Summerhill, Nantucket Briar, Lavender, Verbena & Lavender, Citron and Pomegranate. Whether your love ‘floral’ or ‘fruity’ we have just the summer product!
