Beach cottage decor just stocked at Stars

I usually stock my ‘beachy’ stuff at the beginning of summer.  A bit late this year with my move and all.

P1210669Better late than never. I guess!

P1210645I filled this glass conservatory with assorted glass bottles topped with shells and starfish; and placed a sea-glass wreath over the top.

P1210646I made several of these wreaths in various colors a few years ago when I found a great buy on the sea-glass.  The BIG ones like this are $35.00; take about a week to make.

P1210647Closer look at the bottles in the conservatory.

P1210648There is a specific name for this kind of ‘shell collage’ that I made on a candle pedestal, but it’s escaping me right now.  The little three section frame, I added turquoise paper and glued shells and starfish on.

P1210650I filled the big birdcage with shell topped bottles and some shells and starfish on tall candlesticks.

P1210651Closer look at the shells in the cage.

P1210649Some small apothecary jars filled with shells too.

P1210652The smaller sea-glass wreaths are $13.00 – $19.00

P1210666Vintage ceramic clam shell bowls.

P1210681These framed shells are on a sand paper backing.

P1210682A small framed shell and a photo of a shell.

P1210683Another sand paper backed shell collage; shell topped cloches, shell filled and topped jar and a jute wrapped candle jar with starfish.

P1210685Old rope and starfish wreath.

P1210686Starfish and grapevine wreath.

Lots of new SMALLS at Stars

P1070335A big ole basket FULL of assorted monograms and small signs.  Priced $3 – $10.00.

P1070315Added a lot of new things to the spinner rack.

P1070313Bags of colorful little drink umbrellas for your summer party.

P1070314A new batch of little fauXzen Charlottes for your altered art projects.

P1070317Wild flower design blank note cards.

P1070318Sets of three blank note cards.

P1070320Very vintage looking gold foil note cards.

P1070319I moved the packaged nests with eggs to the spinner rack.

P1070321Always plenty of cute mini take out gift boxes and gift enclosure cards.

P1070305An AMAZING cake plate with dome lid!!!!  I have never seen one like this, where the platter sits flat on the table.  The platter has a raised rim that the dome top fits inside of, so the lid CAN’T slide off!  (there is one VERY tiny chip on the rim; barely noticeable)

P1070272Doing some beach themed collages.

P1070273LOVE the sparkles on the sea horses!!

1 stars bannerBrought in a LOT of newly created shell topped bottles, and have them displayed in the ‘over the bed’ shelf.

P1070087

P1070088And some newly made sea glass wreaths!

P1070118This big one has already sold, but I have several more to take in.

P1070090A couple of framed and matted sea glass collections.

P1070309And the biggest change is that I moved all the white dinner dishes from one of the ‘outward facing shelves’ on the back aisle to the big aqua hutch right by the entrance.  Just swapped them out with the cake pedestals that were there.

P1070298The dessert stands (MOST of them that is!) are here, where the white plated and bowls used to be.

P1070328It just makes more sense to have the rest of the white dishes closer to the others that I moved to the right side of the entrance a while back.  PLUS, the plates were not selling very well where I had them.  So hopefully this will improve sales!

This picture was taken BEFORE I removed the cake stands and put the plates and bowls on the hutch, but it’s the only picture that I have where you can SEE how nicely the display ‘transitions’ from the two front shelves to the hutch.

P1070307Just piled the stacks as high as I could!

P1070308And with them now being right at waist level, it will be easier to ‘dig through them’ to find exactly what you need!

P1070329Beat the heat and enjoy a bit of SHOPPING THERAPY at STARS!

OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK; 11AM – 6PM.
