Peacock Lane Home

I wanted to give you a little tour around the local shop, Peacock Lane Home,
that is keeping me so busy trying to keep my space filled. 
The store was previously occupied by a florist that had been at this location 
for years. The local community was very sad to see the florist go and is very glad to 
see the downtown space occupied once again. Here is the
front of the store with it's two large display windows.










The store has various vendors and a large number of items on consignment,
but still maintains a continuity that makes it a very memorable
shopping experience.  Because there are so many people involved,
there is a large and varied selection of unique "one-of-a-kind" items that
changes on a daily basis.
There are beautiful purses and jewelry.
 








Sleek red, black and white furniture and Marilyn memorabilia.




Unique ornate old pieces of furniture.




And a gorgeous selection of old trunks.







This is the colorful vignette awaiting customers at the front door.




Every room abounds with lovely items.
 


 
Here is a little school desk I took in Friday afternoon and it was sold
on Saturday morning.  There were other beautiful vignettes of
furniture I wanted to get pictures of, but after the Saturday
morning rush, many of them were gone.




Today I helped out in the store and got to witness the "Saturday morning
rush" that occurs because of the many local residents who
shop the Farmer's Market on the main street of our suburb from 
9am until noon.  It was raining this morning, so they told me it
was slow, but for about 45 minutes, furniture was literally flying
out the door as fast as they could pay for it and load their cars.  It was
fun to see so many lovely treasures finding new homes and many
happy customers.  The store has only been open for 8 weeks and
the community seems to have embraced it with open 
arms and pocketbooks.

That is a beautiful shop! I would have bought your little school desk, too! Update us soon, and show more pics of your vignettes in the shop.

Thank you so much for showing us around the shop Cindy!! I do love the way the vignettes are- the place I have my things in you have specific booths so it is very partitioned off looking not like this looks.

Hope you have a great 4th! Any special plans?

I would love that store! Beautiful items to be had. The purses are beautiful but unfortunately way out of my price range.

Where do you find all your antique items, Cindy?
