This weeks blog is the last one until we get back from our road trip. Yes, it is time to get serious so we are heading out to Arkansas by way of Memphis Tn. Our trip will also take us to Missouri and a visit to Curious Sofa.

Denise will be running the store until we get back and for those who know her, knows she will take good care of you.

We are also expecting an order to arrive next week of some wonderful pieces so please get by to see them. Here is a sneak peek of some of the pieces that will be arriving.

One of our Dealers, Denise and her husband were stationed here for a while but now have the chance to go back to Germany. While she lived there in the past, she collected quite a few antique and vintage pieces. However to make her trip back a little lighter she is clearing out a lot of her collections. Here are some of her red and white transfer ware plates and accessories she recently brought can't beat her prices.

I picked these great framed prints the other day. They are of 4 different moths and look great hung together.

This is such a neat idea, Sharon found these old napkin holders and we added vintage photos to use them as photo frames. They would also look neat with vintage postcards.

Miniature Succulents can you tell they are fakes?

Incredible hand made necklaces from found objects

Cute garden accents


Well it won't be long now, I am looking forward to yet another road trip. This time I am heading back to Arkansas via Nashville. I have always been lucky at finding some great pieces out there and at one auction in particular I don't want to miss.

On this trip, I will have Deborah, aka Tattered Cat with me, you may remember her from Lakewood this is our first trip together and I am sure it will be a fun time.

We finally finished the Front bedroom, the new look has had mixed reactions which we were expecting. Don't worry though, The Plum Tree has not gone off the deep end, we will still offer something for everyone and every style.

Come see us soon!

Somewhere between Renaissance Revival and Art Deco lies a plethora of styles and numerous periods in time.

Of course in antiques, the past is not always the same. This week I wanted to introduce you to a little more of the Steampunk style. Writer Richard Morgan says, "Steampunk is the future as dreamt by the past."

The definition of Steampunk is diverse enough to incorporate everything from Victorian to Modern, with generous doses of futurism, machine age, and romance thrown in for good measure.

It is a combination of old factory gears, magnifying glasses, vintage lab wares and hourglasses. It's a setting for steamer trunks, antique globes, aged brass and dark woods from an eerie old library.

Items such as apothecary jars, botanical specimens and glass cloches serve as reminders of the beginning of modern medicine and surveyor's lamps, factory pendants, industrial antiques, and mercury glass add a science fiction expression.

Steampunk is not for everyone, and we wouldn't expect it to be. Moreover, this is only one of the varieties of styles and collections available at The Plum Tree.
