Newest Treasures

Beautiful old crib, now daybed with ticking mattress and chenille cover


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!

Cute little one drawer white side table

We have a large selection of decorative accessories and china. If you are missing a piece from your set, we just might have it here.

Lot's of pretty Blue and White Transfer ware

We now carry plate hangers too!


Neat old papered mannequin bust ~ great for hanging necklaces


This is an awesome pair of old arched architectural windows with original glass


Isn't this old speaker neat? It once sat on top of an old radio from the 20's

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.
