January thoughts….


Welcome to Appletree Cottage!

January is usually that quiet month where post holiday customer traffic drops off.

When I opened this shop, I wanted it to be unique and not the norm so I have been working hard to restock the shop so it is a fresh experience for all of you looking to get out of the house on these gray January days in New England.

I have attended some auctions and estate sales; and have been digging through barns and basements for those interesting items for the shop. So far I have made 3 repurposed lamps that are featured on my Facebook page.

I also have this great vintage cabbage slicer that makes a great wall hanging as well as a nice pantry/linen cabinet that is the perfect size for the kitchen corner or bathroom.

So  come on in out of the cold and spend some time browsing. I’ll even make you a cup of coffee! I look forward to seeing you soon.

Victorian Mantle to hang your stockings on…

I am so pleased to have just obtained this Victorian Mantle with original mirror just in time for the holidays. A perfect piece to hang your stockings on. The detail is fantastic and the piece is in great shape given it’s age.

Santa would love coming down the chimney to see this mantle!

The shop is full of all kinds of vintage home decor items.  I am also carrying a variety of whimsical, eclectic holiday ornaments and decorations.

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
