Anchor Cottage Is Open For The Season

The store has been renovated!
 Downsized from 1450 to 750 square feet.

We are going with a new theme this year.
"Is it pretty!?"

I always had a place in the store for the men to shop. And now I have done away with "nautical world" and rugged men type pieces. Although, I still have a small collection of masculine items available. Beer steins from England, books and body wash:-)

The new size is forcing me to be more focused on the products I am choosing for the store. I have created specific areas such as "paper world" and "tabletop world".

I hung the Michael Clark collection of paintings mixed in with the walnut and mirrors. 

"Baby world" is now carrying "Little English" smocked clothing.

Hung Holly Sturges over the "bedding world".

Pretty cozy!

I still having tweaking to do. If you peak to the back there is, "textile world", full of rugs, fabrics, swatches, lampshades and wallpaper books.


As the spring progresses new lines will be coming in. We are compensating for the downsizing by moving product outside.
My husband is creating new signage for the shop, can't wait to see what he has come up with. This is my thirteenth summer, let's bring it on with new looks and attitude!
