February Heartbeats

“Be Mine” glass heart ornaments from Bethany Lowe are Valentine keepsakes. $6.50 gift boxed




Visit us this February Valentine season!

Our shelves and displays are loaded with great gift ideas such as tabletop decor, new pieces of vintage style jewelry from Sweet Romance Jewelry, dessert teas from Harney & Sons such as the popular Chocolate Mint and Vanilla Comoro, adorable stuffed animals from Bunnies by the Bay (baby-safe but not just for babies!), and new kitchen towels all ready for spring!


Our Punch Studio Valentine cards are going fast!  No one throws these away and the price is right – $2.25 – 3.50.  Or, get the kids together and spread out the makings for your own special Valentines with our ribbons, Anna Griffin stickers and whatever you can pull out from your own sewing remnants and broken jewelry!

Open Tuesday through Sunday 11-5

Sweetheart friends from Bunnies by the Bay including the “wittle” kitten and pooch. Baby-safe but not just for babies!

Come in this weekend to pick up what you need to make your own Valentine cards and decor.  Brew up some some tea, watch the Super Bowl commercials and have a Winter Blast!
Open Tuesday – Sunday 11-5.



Brighten Your Days Here!

“So Stinkin’ Cute” is the apt name by Bunnies by the Bay for this “wittle” doggie. Cuddly, soft and baby safe – but not just for babies! $10.95

Get the lead out and enjoy these winter days!

Aurora’s shops are cozy and filled with interesting items that will absorb countless hours to relax and prompt your feet to just guide you around.  Rather than sitting indoors (letting your skin dry out) you might instead get a small amount of exercise here!  (At least enough to justify a cheeseburger at the Colony Pub or a cinnamon roll at the White Rabbit bakery! Mmmm)

Our shop is filled with the delightful colors, scents and creative pieces of the coming Valentine season.  If that’s a holiday you skip, just treat yourself this year — we’ve all earned it!

The warm and bright colors of reds and pinks along with our new spring greens (our new jade green wares look good enough to eat!) will lift your winter spirits.  And our tea counters are filled with that perfect tea to warm you on these cold days and evenings.

Get your Punch Studio Valentine cards before they’re sold out. This is just HALF our selection. These cards are never thrown out! $2.25-$3.50 (no extra postage either)

Stop in this week and get in our FINAL WEEK OF OUR JANUARY WHITE SALE.  ($7-10 off all April Cornell tablecloths!)

Open Saturday & Sunday 11-5  (Open Monday, January 30  11-5)  Tuesday-Sunday 11-5


We’re Seeing Red!”

Crisp REDS with White make a fresh start to the new year.

We know after the glaring white of (how many days?) of snow that we’re in for OUR TYPICAL WINTER OF DREARY RAIN.  So, in with the warming reds and pinks! 

Our gift shop is a Valentine mecca for you with cheerful linens, bright red teapots, timely tabletop decor and loads of Valentine ideas!

What to do on a rainy day?  Pick up some of our Anna Griffin paper scraps and stickers, cut off a few feet of our great ribbon collection,  pull out your old broken jewelry bits and paper doilies, and create some of your own Valentine creations!  It’s fun, easy, pull out the tv tray and you can watch a romantic movie at the same time.

Anna Griffin paper scraps and stickers are great fun and so easy. Make your own Valentine cards and decorations in no time!

Karen created about 20 of these paper Valentine ‘ornaments’ in about 2 hours while also watching a movie! Just a glue stick and some ribbon plus Anna Griffin’s scraps and stickers.

Come in this weekend to pick up what you need to get started. Have some friends over and have them bring their bits n pieces, make some tea and have a Winter Blast!
Open Tuesday – Sunday 11-5.

New ‘Take’ on White Sale

Wow!  When I planned our January “White” Sale I meant a LINEN sale, not a major snowstorm!

We will be reopening on Saturday, January 14 even with some snow and ice still on the ground but it will be cozy in the store.  We will be open on Monday, January 16 during Martin Luther King national holiday.

Warm and rosy, this April Cornell tablecloth goes easily from winter to spring. Enjoy savings during our January “White” Sale.

We have just rearranged the gift shop and added all kinds of great new displays including our complete Valentine collections – cards, ribbons, teas and linens.

Stop in and shake off that cabin fever by experiencing the new COLORS in our shop!

Open 11-5.


January “White” Sale!

In the old days, ladies waited until January to replace their linens and retailers were ready for them.  Nowadays, we typically buy new linens at the start of seasons – and rarely are they on sale!

While we have no real “white” linens, we DO have beautiful colors and they are perfect for the new season.  Enjoy savings of $10 off on popular 54″x54″ tablecloths by April Cornell (now $39) and $7 off on 36″x36″ size (now $21.95) on our entire stock!  $1 off on April’s best selling waffle-weave dish towels, too.

We’ll be setting up our new Valentine displays so you can pick up the three-dimensional cards from Punch Studio that you love as well as romantic, old fashioned scraps by Anna Griffin to create your own little masterpieces.  It will be a feast for your eyes!

Open Tuesday – Sunday, 11-5.  Mondays open on Holidays or by chance.
