Pop-Up Sale in Chicagoland- Preview Night Pictures

I am just getting home from the evening event of Tartans, Toddies and Rhinestones. It was a wonderful evening and I want to thank everyone that attended and made it a huge success!  We have filled in with new merchandise and are looking forward to our sale tomorrow from 11 to 4.
Here are some pictures from this evening's event! 


Wonderful curtain details in the entry- men's suiting with "Hermes" look lining and braided leather belt for tie back- divine!!

A very special oil painting with dog and wonderful child! ( can't see the sweet dog face as it's behind the roses! ) One of a kind!

One of a kind vintage rhinestone necklaces that have been soldered together to make long layered pieces. Can be worn in any direction as all the sides are gorgeous!

Old chandelier candelabra's updated with seasonal shades!

Okay- overhead lights off and candles on!

A knock on the door and we have a florist delivery- breathtaking flowers sent by a special gal in Texas - flowers created by Twigs in Lake Bluff!  Everyone gets cold chill bumps seeing this exquisite floral bouquet and we know we must work it into our crown and bottle display.

New crown added to the collection! Love this one!
   Exquisite ex- votos  with hand dyed ribbon!

             A new  large  crown that we just added to the collection


Dough bowl filled with fall flowers!
                              Neutral color Harvest palette on the main table in the dining room!

Lots of antlers for fall decorating.

A sweet cherub compote- perfect for candles, flowers or nuts!

Silver vegetable serving pieces re-purposed as lunch boxes with fall embellishments on top!
Imagine serving a box lunch in them- Harvest Cranberry Chicken Salad, Grapes and a warm roll!
Delightful! Every guests gets their own.

 Old Paris Porcelain Tea Service

Unbelievable French leather embossed folding screen with 4 panels from the late 1800's.
Could be taken apart and used as wall panels in a room! 
Thanks for a great evening and we look forward to tomorrow. It was wonderful to see old friends again!  We open 11 to 4 on this Friday and Saturday  at 42 Sherwood Terrace Unit 11 Lake Bluff, Illinois.  Hope to see you!

Susan....the shop looks great...really wish I could have been there...sounds like everyone had a great time. Love the new additions, those crowns could rival the Crown Jewels. That gal from Texas sent some beautiful flowers...TWIGS never disappoints.
Hope your next 2 days are just as exciting.

Another lovely event at the store! The merchandise and staging is so pretty......but my favs were the crowns and embellished bottles....really unique. One of the bottles has a place on my pastry table.
