Food, Glorious Food!

One of the items that Halcyon House is known for around the holidays is our selection of food gifts. Stiles,  Jonathan and Eric sample everything before buying it, to make sure that it's the finest quality, and the finest of its type. The focus is on sweet and savoury. 

 Great pecans and almonds. Everyone LOVES these!
OMG! If you thought the original cheese straws were good, these are amazing!

You might want to buy an extra tin of these, just because...

This toffee is delicious. Toffee, chocolate and nut. What more do you want?

Last, but not least, Bequet Caramels. I love the little crunch of Irish sea-salt in them.




Of course, you can ask our resident gourmand, Eric, which he likes best.

Going Global

We all remember those cheezy plastic snow-globes that were around when we were kids. The snow was chunky stuff and the globes inevitably leaked after a few days. 
At Halcyon House, we have the most amazingly beautiful snow-globes that are a whole world away from the ones as kids.

These snow-globes are large and heavy and have tons of snow in them that floats lightly to the ground when you shake them. 


My favorite is the Buddha one, just so serene, made in a frosted crystal, with sparkly shimmery snowflakes. 


For more information, or to reserve one of these special snow-globes, get in touch with Eric, our global ambassador.

O, Christmas Tree!

Do you know that the song, “O, Christmas Tree” has the same tune as “Maryland, My Maryland”? It’s true!

At Halcyon House, we have lots of Christmas trees, both large and small. IMG_6852

We have table-top trees (much smaller than the one above)IMG_6864 in many styles and shapes.IMG_6866

These decorative trees are great for supplementing your decorating scheme, tucking into small places and arranging on a mantelpiece. There are actually seven trees on the mantel!IMG_6858

For more information on these lovely trees, or to reserve a few for yourself, please call Santa’s little helper, our Eric.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Mirrors are a brilliant decorating accent for any number of reasons. They bounce the light around. They’re great for a quick check before you head out the door. They can add a note of elegance to any d├ęcor. They are timeless.

At Halcyon House Antiques, we’ve just gotten some of the MOST amazing mirrors into the shop. This Venetian-style mirror is bordered by the most gorgeous beveled blue glass. IMG_5371Here’s the same mirror in a deep purple (for the Ravens’s fan?).IMG_5665Nothing says classic like a sunburst mirror!IMG_5653Here are some of the other mirrors we have. You will notice that we use them as accents throughout the house.IMG_5651IMG_5656IMG_5658IMG_5660IMG_5662IMG_5668IMG_5670

This is one of our most amazing mirrors. IMG_5672

Stunning in its own right, but when you look at the detail work, it’s amazing!IMG_5674

As always, please check in with Eric, who loves a good mirror, if you’re interested in anything you see here.

Fits Like a Glove!

There’s a nip in the air these days when we head out to walk the dog, head off to work or take the children to school, and nothing’s better for warding off a chill like a chic pair of gloves! Each year, we work with our source to select the most fun, the most elegant and the most unique combinations of trims, colors and styles of gloves. Take a look.IMG_5675IMG_5677IMG_5679IMG_5680IMG_5681

We have wonderful scarves that coordinate with the gloves. IMG_5393

And the gentlemen aren’t left out!IMG_6091

It’s going to be a long winter, so stock up now while your favorites are still here! And the gloves have a great price point, so you can buy several pairs to give as gifts. They’re knit, so they fit many sizes.

As always, contact Eric to talk about the glove you love!
