February Musings

Well it certainly has been an interesting week. We just finished digging out from a 2 ft snow storm!  At the beginning of this week I had a fun 4 day trip to the Market Square Show in Valley Forge, PA. This is my 4th time to the show and it seems to get better each year. This year I was especially impressed with the American Made section. I found some wonderful handmade items for the shop: unique signage, beautiful hand screened pillows, funky lamps and even a new candle line.nauticalmantle



As I mentioned in my January 1 post, and as you can see from these pictures, I am starting a new nautical room in the shop. It is really starting to come together with the signage, carvings, and a nice variety of seaside items. I was inspired to decoupage on sap buckets, enlarged antique postcards of seacoast NH beach scenes. They came out great ! You can see 2 of the buckets in these photos.

New items are arriving in the shop daily. This coming week I am expecting a couple of  deliveries of some very funky and unique tables and chairs, to go with my wide assortment of table and pendant lamps.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Warm regards, Anne


The Holiday Season has arrived at Appletree Cottage

I know it has been  a while since my last post, I have been busy decorating the shop for the holidays. My 2nd anniversary Open House last month seems so long ago. I do want to thank all of you that visited the shop over the 3 days. It was a fun weekend and I truly do appreciate your support. Thank you!

Holiday transformation!

With the help of my husband we have transformed the shop into a winter wonderland for the holiday season. I love this time of year! With the twinkling lights, crackling candles and lots of holiday gift options Appletree Cottage is your local shop for all your holiday gifts.

Just today the antique double student desk was purchased as a Christmas gift. The decorated vintage sleds are also selling fast, I only have 3 left.  I have stocked up with a variety of items at all different price ranges. I have a wide assortment of candles, wine bottle toppers, and some great tree ornaments.

Of course my selection of antiques keeps changing. I have stocked up with a range of items from large furniture pieces to stocking stuffers. Just yesterday I purchased some great thumb back chairs. I also have some unique items such as early 1900’s portable shoe shine station, antique sleigh bells, and antique wooden ice skates.

It is never too early to shop for those holiday gifts. I will be posting my extended holiday hours and upcoming special shopping events here and on Facebook. I hope to see you soon.

Warm regards, Anne
