Christmas Ideas

Pillowcases ready for monogramming

In our business, we  have to have some small gifts for customers this time of year, as lots of  people don’t give big furniture pieces for presents! So we try to accommodate and have some gift ideas. Antiques & Uniques has gotten into doing some monogramming as its still the rage around here.This booth carries bath and body products year round so the monogramming on cosmetic bags, spa wraps, etc seemed to fit well. This weekend, I’ve gussied up some pillowcases and have some ready for monogramming to make them even more personal.


Jazz it up!

I picked up these prints recently at the Charlotte Metrolina show, they’re in black and white. I just love them! When the crystal hanging vases came in , I just knew they’d look snazzy together. These make the corner of the bath area we rent in Chattanooga look pretty cool! Do you like them?

We aim to please!

We wrapped up a couple of work projects this afternoon, we love doing custom jobs. This black chest turned out so cute. It started out as a pale red, and the painter added a light coat of black satin and then I came back and “worked my magic”! LOL We purchased this chunky chest just a few weeks ago in Charlotte at the Metrolina show. Its so solid and sturdy, will be perfect  in the little boys room its headed to!


I ran up on these lovelies at the Metrolina Show this weekend in Charlotte, NC and just had to have them! Not for resale but for moi’!We have friends in on New Years Eve each year, these are going to look so snazzy on the bar, monogrammed swizzle sticks! I told the vendor I bought them from, that’s some “serious drinking”, when you monogram your swizzle sticks.LOL  We estimate these tortoise shell monogrammed swizzle sticks to be from the 1940’s, what an era!! How fun are these?

We’ll definitely go back!

We went to Charlotte, NC this weekend to the Fall Classic Show at the Metrolina Center.We had a great time, met some friends there, found lots of bargains! It was just a perfect weekend!This was our first time there and we weren’t sure what to expect as far as buying inventory to resale but we found tons of goodies! Several dressers, tables, a foyer table, cups and saucers( which sell good in the tea  booth), bed tray and an old 1920’s crinoline !! Not sure what I’ll do with that but I’ve been looking for one for awhile!We’ll definitely go again!.

Its back to two!

Whew, we’re back to booths in just 2 nearby towns now! Having booths in 3 different towns was killing us! So…we made the difficult decision a few weeks ago to pull out of one ,but of course, stayed until the end of the month in Rome , GA. Now, we have booths in Chickamauga, Ga and nearby Chattanooga ,Tennessee.This should be a little easier on us as well as the gas tank!
