I confess... love a great bargain. Also love discovering new places to find treasures - thank you Melissa for introducing me another hidden jewel in Seattle, a new (to me!) consignment shop in downtown Ballard of all places. I highly recommend "Classic Consigment" on 24th Ave., they have wonderful furniture, accent pieces, china, art, jewelry and a whole lot more. All at very reasonable prices and good quality + the shop owners are welcoming and fun!
Don't worry - I did restrain myself from buying a whole set of Blue Willow, but I may have to go back and get some vintage wicker chairs that I found.... Would look perfect in the new apartment, great lounging seats to enjoy the view of the San Mateo Bridge spanning the San Francisco Bay. hmmmmm...
Vietri Italian Artisan inspired dinnerware in my coastal living retail store in Poulsbo, and one of my biggest regrets is that I didn't buy any for myself! Love the shapes, the colors, the history, the artistry and in all of the painstaking care in the hand painted details. If you have ever seen Vietri, you will know what I am talking about! I found two PERFECT examples of Vietri, while happily searching the shelves at Classic Consignments - almost giddy with excitement!
Check out my find - 2 collector pieces from the Ristorante' series - "Mauelina" and "Nannina". Trying to decide if I should keep them or list them on the website in my "Beach Finds" category. What do you think?
Off on more adventures this week - stay tuned!
