Find Your Way!

We just got a shipment of antique and exquisite cufflinks that are so much fun. There is one pair in particular which would be a great gift for a graduating student, or someone who needs a little help in finding their way.

These tiny cufflinks, which measure less than an inch, are prefect working compasses. They have a great roping detail around the edge and are so much fun and so elegant.

Find your way, or show someone else the way with these nautical cufflinks.

As always, for more information, please contact Eric at the shop.

Candy is Dandy!

It’s a time-honored tradition to give sweets to your sweetie, and at Halcyon House, we have sweets, including our own Eric!

Everyone loves our BĂ©quet Gourmet Caramels, especially the ones with Irish Sea Salt. You can feel the little pops of salt in each caramel, which makes them especially tasty!image

Our newest offering is Toffee to Go, chosen by Oprah as one of her Favorite Things for 2013. We are lucky that we got our order in before she made the announcement, because her Favorite Things usually sell out instantly!IMG_4084

We think you’re sweet for reading our blog!

How about some fun earrings?Or a lovely necklace?If the weather does turn really bad, not to worry, you can print out one of these images and put it in a box for Valentine’s Day and then come out on Saturday and buy the actual item!

It’s Time for Valentine’s Day!

Time’s ticking down until Valentine’s Day! And even though we know you use your cellphone to check the time, it’s really much easier to just turn your wrist and look at your watch.  But we want to make sure your watch reflects who you are, so we’ve stocked some classic and fun watches to meet every occasion.

I like these women’s watches that look like they wrap around your wrist, but in reality, they snap at the back, making them easy to put on and take off.
For the gentlemen, there’s a traditional watch with the classic grosgrain ribbon strap. These look like vintage watches, but they’re the latest technology.
For those of us, both men and women, whose eyes aren’t quite as sharp as they used to be, these unisex watches are just the thing. The watches come with either a black, brown or navy strap.

We hope that you’ll make the time to come in and see us before Valentine’s Day… or after. We’d love to see you anytime!

Countdown to Valentine’s Day!

The clock is ticking, and Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! If you have a significant other, you know that it’s best to be ready on the morning of Valentine’s Day, and have something to give.

Halcyon House Antiques should be your go-to shop for a unique Valentine’s Day gift. We will be providing you with some suggestions over the run up to Valentine’s Day. Are you ready? IMG_2707

We are going to start with pearls. We have both traditional and contemporary versions.

IMG_3873IMG_3871IMG_3795IMG_2723Pearls are one of the oldest known forms of gems, and they will remain classic forever.
