Faire du lèche-vitrine

Want to go window shopping avec moi?
Don't know that I will be able to make it
to High Point this fall, but if so, this is
the first place on the list, YH Antiques.
I love antiques with stripped, weathered
surfaces. This massive antique carved
Spanish table belongs in my dining room...
or the shop :)
Definitely would test my self-discipline.

What a fabulous collection of Swedish and
European antiques! If you go, YH is located
at 430 N. Wrenn St., in the Yorkshire House.
Sorry, no website.

Can a person have too many beautiful
leather bound antique books?
Do you prefer gold,

Parchment with the look of old vellum,

or antique script?
These are available wholesale to the trade from
E. Lawrence
If you are not a dealer, contact me.

Need to re-upholster an antique chair in
in scripted fabric? This is available in yardage
or ready made curtains from Design Legacy.

They are in to the art of typography,

regardless of form.

All sorts of Naturalia too.

Design Legacy also carries some
unique one-of-a-kind antiques and
vintage pieces like this French santon.
I think I found a new vendor!

If you like the rustic charm of zinc and
galvanized pieces, visit Homart.
Fun pieces with great price points!
The French bistro sign is from Creative Coop
Love architectural elements? Me too!
Nothing sets off a wall grouping better than
a three dimensional piece.
Fabulous cast pieces and your choice of
finish. A want a collection in old stone and
white for the wall in my staircase.

Looking for juggling pins or the vintage look
lady forms? GoHome has a great selection
in their Vintage Farmhouse collection.
I will add these vendors to my Trade Links
in the sidebar in case you would like to
reference them later.
Feel free to contact me if you need to
purchase retail and if your looking for
French Antiques..you know where to come.
Hope you enjoyed the shopping!
