Off to the Races!

One of our favorite events, the Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs, is on Saturday, September 27th, and we’re going to have a pop-up shop there! Naturally, as we walked around the shop choosing items for the sale, we looked at our equestrian-themed pieces. And if you want first dibs on them, come by the shop this week, before we pack them up for Shawan Downs.

We have some terrific jewelry with stirrups and braided leather. HHA 9-13 (13)HHA 9-13 (14)HHA 9-13 (15)HHA 9-13 (16)

How elegant would these cufflinks look on a crisp white shirt?HHA 9-13 (6)HHA 9-13 (7)

This bag, with a bit and tassel, comes in several colors. It is the perfect bag as we segue into the fall.HHA 9-13 (17)

I am not an advocate of candles during the day, so skip this for the race, but how chic would these leather and glass hurricanes look on either side of your front door! We have several styles and sizes of these, so come in and see which suits you.HHA 9-13 (26)

And for your picnic table, how about these foxy little pewter salt and pepper shakers?HHA 9-13 (46)

This John Derian plate is ideal to serve a small appetizer, or some delicious chocolates!HHA 9-13 (62)

Look for Halcyon House Antiques’ pop up shop under the tent and we’ll see you at Shawan Downs! As always, please contact Eric at the shop if you’d like details on anything shown.

De Rigaud

Halcyon House Antiques is pleased to announce that we are now carrying Rigaud Candles! We are the only store in the area where these wonderful candles are available.

Rigaud was established in Paris in the mid-1800’s and has carried a reputation for excellence since that time. imageTheir motto, When a Flame Becomes Perfume reflects their early days in the perfume trade, but their candles are the most elegant and highest quality available today. IMG_2994In 1950, Mme. Rigaud created a candle to be used as an environmental scent in her shop, and there became such a demand for them, that the company began manufacturing them. A hallmark of these candles is the high percentage of essential oils, which when warmed, release the magnificent scents.

Rigaud’s signature zebra-striped boxes and grosgrain ribbon are another touch of elegance. IMG_2974A Rigaud candle will make a thoughtful and generous gift to someone you love – even if it’s you!

As always, if you see something which interests you, please contact Eric at the shop.
