Small Business Saturday

While this is a plug to support our small business on Saturday, November 26th, we really want to ask you to support all of the other small businesses in the area. HH_saturday

Some Small Business Facts:
Small businesses drive much of the United States economy.
Currently, there are 28 million American small businesses, which account for 54% of all U.S. sales.
More than just a product or service, small businesses offer customers an experience.
Local companies can provide one-on-one service that is often impossible for large corporations.
By shopping small, customers have better chances of getting tailored and knowledgeable answers to their questions.
Shop locally, spend locally.

Thank you.

Getting Ready!

Over the weekend, Stiles and Jonathan, worked to make the inventory for our Portobello Road Pop-Up look amazing. Vintage-Crown-Pearls-Image-GraphicsFairyBoth of them have an incredible ability to stage and style. While I was unpacking some things, Jonathan set up this vignette in about two minutes! When you dissect the photo, you can see the red from the plates playing off of the red in the curtains, and the symmetry, with the central focus on the Queen’s plate and the lamp behind it.IMG_2605

There are more than 200 items in the sale, and it was like a puzzle finding the best place for everything. IMG_2599

This combination of blue and white evolved into centering this huge ironstone basin under the table, to balance the white tray.IMG_2620

We love Sam Robinson’s painting above the fireplace, but we replaced it with an extraordinary embroidered image of numerous British flags, all executed in fine silks. IMG_2601The three plates are reproductions of the famous Wedgwood “Frog Service” originally made for Catherine the Great.

Another quandry was finding a place and a way to display all of the mother of pearl cutlery that I’ve collected over the past few months. We laid some of it out on linen trays, IMG_2610and bundled them with ribbons, courtesy of Bosom Buddy Bags, and placed the lots in mini silver buckets. IMG_2614

One of our favorite vignettes is this corner display of a set of silver, along with three classic prints, in incredible frames. IMG_2612

As we headed out after a full day of staging and styling, we saw some members of the local deer population grazing in the meadow in front of Halcyon House. IMG_2624

The Portobello Pop Up opens on Friday, September 16 and rund through the 24th. Hope to see you there!
