I know it is probably the coldest it has been in a while, however we are already in Spring mode at the Plum Tree. Since there are so many of you that love gardening and the vintage garden look, we have decided to create a year round garden oasis right inside the store. I have already asked my dealers to start looking for neat vintage garden pieces from planters to swings and everything in between and believe me when they get assignments they don't dally.
So watch as our garden starts to grow & the weather gets toasty warm.
We have a new artist at the Plum Tree, I am excited to introduce you to Crystal of My Felt Food.
Crystal came to me and asked if I might be interested in offering her line of wool felt food in the store. Of course I am always looking for new artists to promote so I said sure. I was so excited when I saw her actual pieces and have to say the are already selling quite well.
She designed these pieces for the Plum Tree which we call the Plum Tree tea.
Each piece is handmade and are really a work of art, she even made a plum tea teabag.
Her website is http://www.myfeltfood.com/
I have to brag a little this week about one of my dealers. Deborah aka The Tattered Cat is not only a finder of great treasures, she is also a great friend. This past week Deborah came down and along with Joy we went to Americasmart for the January show. After two days of walking showroom after showroom and floor after floor, Deborah still stayed on and worked with me in the store all day Sunday before heading home three hours away at 9:00 PM.
A lot of our customers remember Deborah from Lakewood Antiques and still come to the shop just to see what she has brought in. I am lucky to have her as a dealer and even luckier to have her as a great friend.
Below is a necklace that Deborah created out of old pieces of found objects. She is working on more so stay tuned. The pictures do not do this piece justice.
