As promised, here are some photos from our shop MAISON ST. GERMAIN. We have been decorating for Christmas. Yes, already;) This way we can enjoy the shop and when it is time to decorate our own homes we won't be stressed. We are even playing Christmas music. At home I don't decorate until the day after Thanksgiving. But in retail it is different. I don't really mind though. Christmas is such a beautiful holiday. The meaning of Christmas and all of the decorating that goes along with it makes me smile all season:) I can never have enough of the Christmas spirit.
Our shop may be small but it is big on personality! It is jam packed with vintage items and vintage Christmas. We have hundreds of ornaments, some vintage some hand made. All gorgeous. Something for every ones budget too:) The ornaments above are hand beaded from the seventies. Each one is amazing and unique. No two are alike. We loved putting up this vintage silver tree on a cornflower painted vintage chair and covering it with this fabulous collection.
These one of a kind fabulous glittery red skaters came from Patrice of Sentimentally Me. Patrice turns everything she touches into pure gorgeousness!
Lots of little 'FOREVER TREES' from MAISON ST. GERMAIN. Some sit in vintage cups, others in vintage creamers. Always unique and festive.
OK, who doesn't love a pink tree? Nicole decorated this tree with about 100 vintage ornaments. It came out so pretty you really need to see it in person.
Of course our dress forms are dressed for the season as angels. This one has paper pattern flowers attached to her tutu.
When you come into the shop, expect to spend a bit of time in here. You have to look up and down and under because we have to be creative about displaying things and work with the space we have. But that is half the fun. I know that when I go into a shop I enjoy just relaxing and looking for that favorite treasure to bring home. The thrill of the hunt:)
The 'girls' all dressed for Christmas will welcome you as you enter the shop.
