Last minute Items

A few more new items have come in and today we get to put it all together and "fluff" it up.  This is the part where the heavy lifting is done (yah!) and the final touch goes into getting the details just right.  This is the part I love!  Enjoy, see you this weekend!

Adorable numbered tins!

Great combination of materials, metal, glass, wood, lace and a vintage military picture.

Lori, LaDeeDa Designs, came in with an armful of new items. 

French-inspired notebooks.  A perfect gift!

Paddywac's will be open August 26 and 27, Friday and Saturday and to get ready, we just spent two days sanding, painting, distressing, shabbying, gel-staining and putting on a few pieces of hardware!  We worked outside and the weather couldn't have been any better (except for that spot of rain we had when we had to bring everything back inside for, oh, about 1 minute).  Turning wonderful pieces "back" into treasures.  It was fun, but, oh such hard work.  Here are a few "before" and "after" pictures and a few other teasers you might enjoy!


"Before" - this is a very sturdy but in need of updating Dresser.

Adorable Secretary

This chest of drawers was transformed. The after picture is waiting for hardware and a picture!

Good Morning - August Market Opens Today With Exciting News

Change is Good! Especially when it brings you great things and today is a start of many great new things at Paddywac's. Today is the debut of LaDeeDa Design. Lori, owner, specializes in "re-styled," up-cycled vintage and contemporary clothing, and combines them for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind New Look. You'll find Lori in the front of the store in a space that resembles a small, funky European boutique. To quote Lori, "I'm ready to roll. Rock and roll that is."

Also at Paddywac's is a huge new selection of jewelry and for the adventurous, we have Fascinators (all the rage) and Feathers (yes Feathers).

Take a look at the preview below. We open at 10:00 a.m. Looking forward to seeing you.

 Robyn has brought in fresh flower arrangements.  They are for sale.

I'm Loving Sundays

Overcast skies this morning, and I feel like drinking coffee and watching the world through the front window! But had to share some great pictures with you. Marty, one of our very talented dealers,  has made the most fabulous table and put it with a set of updated chairs. It's coming in on Monday for our August Market. Very chic I say!

This is another creation of Marty's.  Sofa/entry table!

Enjoy your Sunday, see you on Thursday!
