Sprucing up for Spring at Stars . . . AND a Big sale!

Out with the red and pink and hearts in my booth at Stars, and time to spruce the space up for Spring!

P1180941Front focal point display with whites, creams and metallics.  Just working with what I have on hand in my booth for now BECAUSE I really need ROOM for lots of new stuff!

P1180939And to MAKE that room I am having a 50% off sale!  EVERYTHING except already reduced ‘red tag’ sale items will be HALF OFF.  Discount will be given at check-out.  No specific ‘end date’ for this sale as of yet.  I’ll keep it going until I’ve sold enough stuff to make the room I need for the new inventory.  (and hopefully enough room to bring the BED back in!)

P1180950In the meantime, I’ll continue to ‘mix things up’ and style new vignettes to inspire you for Spring decorating, using what I have on hand.  Vintage Madonna statues and vases, pedestals and urns.

P1180949Adding a few more metallic items with those silver and gold boxes.

P1180948This is actually the BACK side of the front display.

P1180951But it SHOWS as you round the corner, so I may as well ‘market the space’!

P1180952I always really enjoy going with the lighter colors for Spring.

P1180953Vintage inspired felt hearts with lace and buttons.

P1180961Will be building on the Paris themed items when I bring in new product.

P1180962Not many of these reproduction shoe form wall hooks left.  Normally $9.00.  They’ll go fast at half price!

P1180958Small Paris carrying case and burlap pillows.

P1180957Glass apothecary jars and cloches.

P1180960Vintage ceramic frames; one an art deco style and the others a floral motif, are perfect for hanging ‘blank’ where you just need a ‘little something’.

P1180963A new display in the giant white lantern.


An urn works perfectly as a paper crown stand!

P1180975Lots of birds on pedestals and with crowns, of course!

P1180989Lots of the vintage grubby book bundles still available.

P1180987Not very many frames left at the moment.  (I need to find a new stash of them to paint!)

P1180942Fabulous shabby black plant stand!

P1180944Vintage cherub urns look pretty in this back-lit photo!

P1180945Some have plates added to turn them into dessert stands.


Lots of signs available, as always!

P1180946Had your eye on some new white Ironstone pieces??  NOW is the time to grab them!

P1180984I’ll keep this sale going until enough stuff has sold down for a MAJOR re-do of my booth.


Sophie’s Spring Savings Party!

This Friday, March 7th, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Special Savings tags of 10, 20 and 30% will be attached to

special FREE gifts and scattered throughout the store.

Find the gift and receive the indicated discount on your


Here’s what you are looking for:

There will be 7 of the bunnies with 10% discount tags; 5 of the monkeys with 20% discount tags; and JUST ONE PACKAGE OF PURPLE PEEPS WITH A 30% DISCOUNT TAG.

The bunnies and monkeys will be in fairly plain sight, but the package of purple peeps with the pretty bow will be slightly hidden and have to be ‘hunted for’.

I’ll keep track of which have been redeemed at the counter, so I can tell you which are still out there to be found.  AND, if all of them don’t get snatched up on Friday night, I’ll leave the remaining ones out on Saturday for those of you who might not have been able to get in on Friday.  Feel free to call me on Saturday to see if any remain to be found.

Remember, Easter is EARLY this year!  March 23rd!
