Canton in December

It's Christmas at The Veranda! It might not be snowing, but we decorated like it was a winter wonderland. White trees, pale blues, lots of gold and silver! Hope you can make it out to see us this time. Enjoy the pictures!

Love the iron bed all dressed in white linens! The gold mirror at the back reflects the little chandelier hanging overhead. Snuggle in and dream of a white Christmas

What do you get when you mix a big lampshade, a few glittery ornaments, & some ribbon?

A BELL!

A great wrought iron patio set with cushions in the best blue ever! There is a couch and a pair of matching chairs.

A fantastic lamp just dripping with crystal prisms next to a group of old clocks. The big black one is an old time clock. The little pink one and the square green one sold right after this picture was taken.

Snowy white concrete swan that would look great in your garden. Looks good here filled with vintage Christmas tree branches and gold glass beads.

Vintage baby doll nestled in a stack of frames! Great idea!

Pale blue and cream brocade couch. Love the 'sold' tag!

These charm necklaces make great gifts! And they are all double-sided -- like getting two for one!

This vintage 'glamour' shot looks great displayed by the candelabra. There's a bowl of mercury glass ornaments ready to hang on the tree.

Little creamy feather tree decorated with gold ornaments and a white reindeer tree topper.

The absolute most fabulous concrete table with metal banding around the top. Another one of those lovely 'sold tags!

Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Holiday Sale Pictures

Here are a few pictures from our Holiday Bazaar we had this past weekend. We had antique and vintage items as well as some new merchandise for sale. It was lots of fun! Unfortunately, Lillie was sick and couldn't make it, so I can't show you the great necklaces and charms she has been making. She will have them at Canton!!

Isn't this a pretty tabletop tree with a little tea set worked right into the branches! This whimsical tree with the vintage Snoopy lights sold.






Put a little 'junk in your trunk' with these decoupaged suitcases! Don't you just love the cute sign my niece made! Most of these are sold, but custom orders are being taken.

We all had to model (and buy!) this great jewelry. Everyone needs a little BLING now and then! And I'm often distracted by shiny objects....

Speaking of shiny objects, check out the wonderful silverplate serving and accessory pieces just in time for the upcoming holidays.






Arbonne was there to make us look and smell beautiful.




Aren't these handmade quilts and pillow shams just wonderful!




The vintage wedding cake toppers were very popular. Almost all of them sold! They are perfect in a winter wonderland Christmas display!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

SEE YOU AT CANTON!!

One Down......

The Market in the Meadow Holiday Show was lots of fun! The place was packed with shoppers! We plan on going back again next year. But right now we have to get ready for Canton, J.J.Pearce Pacesetters Bazaar, the Holiday Showcase, and then it's time for Canton again! Here are a few pictures that might tempt you to come to our next show. Hope to see you soon. Enjoy the pictures!!


Vintage prom dresses make a nice backdrop -- until you sell some! Then you can see right thru to the next booth....

Isn't this the cutest little vintage tulle tree ever!


This fabulous tree has hundreds of ornaments! It took about 8 hours to tie them all on. The branches are loaded!





A little forest of trees....








These necklaces and little charms went fast! We had to take orders.





Better watch out! Santa Claus is coming to town!

Weekend Holiday Show


Don't forget to come by the Market in the Meadow Holiday Gift Show this weekend. We will have lots of vintage Christmas items, cute gift items, and cottage chic antiques. We will be set up in the gym. Remember, the booths aren't that large - so we won't have that big dining room table & chairs you need for your Thanksgiving dinner. Come see us at Canton for that!!

Canton Follow-up


Thanks to everyone who came by The Veranda this past Canton weekend. I had to work on Friday and missed meeting Margo (aka Robolady)who was shopping with Sue Whitney from JunkMarket. Can't wait until the book comes out to see what Sue is doing with those little letter and number teaching aids she bought from us. Thanks again for stopping by and thanks for bringing Sue with you!

Here are a few close-up pictures of some of our 'eerie' decorations we used in our booth. We had a great time decorating for Halloween. Hope you and your families have a fun one! Enjoy the pics!





MARK YOUR CALENDAR!!
Be sure to join us next month at Canton. We are having PROM NITE Saturday night. I'll post more information later.
