Magpie is Decked Out For Christmas!


I just love this time of the year!  Cool weather, family gatherings, a bowl of steaming soup with a slice of buttered bread and strolling through shops to see how they are decorated for Christmas.

As I have shared before, I sell antiques and collectibles in two stores.  Today I will be sharing some photos from one of the stores, Magpie Antiques and All Things Inspiring.   All of us have decorated our spaces for Christmas and stocked up with beautiful holiday décor that is for sale.  Here is a little tour of the store, but it is even more fun in person.  I will keep the small talk to a minimum.


The front entry to Magpie.   Janet and Betty decorated the white tree with found metal objects.

The next photos are from my space.  I have been busy sewing little French Grain Sack stockings and pillows to sell.  For the pillows, I used vintage hankies and Christmas tablecloths (cutters, of course).

I have not seen a more fabulous collection of Christmas things and I would buy several goodies if I visited your store(s). Love the striped stockings, the white tree, the reindeer made of willow, and so much more.
Happy Thanksgiving.

This was just the entertainment I needed during my break from the kitchen this morning, Becky. I'd LOVE to visit your wonderful shop!! Every booth is filled with such lovely things. And is that a GREEN wall cupboard I see hanging in your booth?!! LOVE. Your little socks and retro pillows are just the ticket to a cozy homespun Christmas. Kudos to you all!

Happy Thanksgiving!
