Although we had snow earlier this week, we’re almost to April, and at week’s end, we celebrate Easter. Spring is a time we think of soft pastel colors, reflecting the pale blue of the sky, the pinks of flowering trees, the yellows of jasmine and forsythia and the greens of newly sprouted leaves. Wandering through Halcyon House Antiques, the pale and pastel shades kept catching our attention. Some of the shades were in our jewelry, some in accessories and others in our line of John Robshaw bedding.
Our chunky resin necklaces and bracelets will be great to wear to church or an Easter brunch. They come in several shades, like these cool celadons, greys and greens in clear and opaque resins, or these warmer reds, oranges and corals,
Halcyon House has also just gotten in some terrific clutch bags, which also double as cross-body bags with a long strap. These bags are just the right size to hold your wallet, phone, a bit of make-up and your keys. What else could you need?
We also just got the new John Robshaw bedding in the most beautiful colors and patterns. It is really lovely, and it all coordinates across the line. Some of the prints are traditional Indian paisleys and other motifs, while some is reflective of the classical Suzani patterns of embroidered and printed circles.
And if there were not enough colors in the shop to remind you that it’s spring, Eric’s stashed the perennial favorite, PEEPS, all around the shop.
Have a great Easter from everyone at Halcyon House Antiques!

Of course, we know that you’ll want to set a beautiful table, so we have gorgeous table-top accessories to make your table shine! How about this classic antique server. It doesn’t matter if that’s not your monogram on it. You can always invent some instant ancestor who was the black sheep of the family, so never was mentioned.
If you are having children at the table, and aren’t quite sure how they’ll do with your best crystal goblets, give them our great Lucite tumblers. They’re unbreakable, and will add a festive burst of color to your table. The children will like the way their drinks look through the clear dots.
If you’re serving a casserole-style dish like noodle kugel or green beans with mushroom soup, you can add some flair to the serving dish with our woven rattan casserole covers. We have a range of styles and sizes for all of your entertaining needs.
Regardless of which holiday you celebrate, Halcyon House Antiques can help you set a great table!

As you might know, we love dogs, and many of ours have been rescued from the SPCA. We have a place in our hearts for the good work that local SPCAs carry out, and are involved in the Maryland SPCA, located on Falls Road in Hampden.
On Sunday, April 21, the MD SPCA is sponsoring the annual March for the Animals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Druid Hill Park. The March for the Animals is the Maryland SPCA's largest annual fundraiser, raising over $343,000 for the animals. This 1.5 mile walkathon is a great way for animal-lovers to support the MD SPCA's mission of helping pets and people. The day is full of great activities including pet contests, an agility course, training classes, pet demonstrations and entertainment. All of the money raised goes toward the MD SPCA’s adoption center, pet owner education, and the care of lost and homeless animals. If you have any questions, please contact Tami Gosheff, Special Events and Outreach Coordinator, at 410.235.8826 x138 or email@example.comWe hope that you will join us in supporting the Maryland SPCA, either at the March for the Animals or with a financial or in-kind contribution.

Stiles, Jonathan and Eric have been attending the various gift and accessories shows in New York over the past six weeks. They scour miles of aisles to find the perfect items for the shop, and of course, for you.
Their main criteria are 1) that the items are exclusive to Halcyon House Antiques, because they understand that you want to be unique in your style and not see it coming and going; and 2) that the items are the best quality and beautifully made.
The boxes have begun to arrive at Halcyon House Antiques, and the unpacking is always exciting because we know how pleased you will be with our new wares.
But not all of our jewelry is traditional – look at this great leather and silver bracelet! Leather cords and a silver loop and hook combine to make this fun and casual bracelet.We have it in both saddle brown or deep black leather.
Since they’re Lucite, you don’t have to worry about using them poolside – they won’t break or shatter!
As always, if you’re interested in anything here, please contact Eric at Halcyon House Antiques.
