Fall Style!

Now that fall is well and truly upon us, although 70* days occasionally pop up, it’s time to jettison that summer bag and pick up a new fall one. We’ve got a great selection of wonderful felt bags that have just come in, including shoppers, totes and clutches.


As always, if you see something here which piques your interest, contact Eric. He’s as interesting as anything you’ll find in the shop!

Oh, Intaglio!

Intaglio is such a classic look, dating back to the early days of the Greeks and Romans. IMG_5246It’s still a chic and stylish look today, and at Halcyon House Antiques, our collection of intaglio jewelry is one of our best selling items. IMG_5247But fear not, there’s a large enough range that you won’t see your piece coming and going. IMG_5251Each piece is handcrafted and assembled, and we even take custom orders for a smaller or larger piece. IMG_5253Ask Eric. IMG_5241

You are sure to find something that you love!

Dahlia Days

As the fall days shorten, there’s one bright spot in the garden – at least until the first frost. Stiles and Jonathan’s collection of dahlias is second to none!

When you visit Halcyon House Antiques, you will see masses of freshly cut dahlias decorating the tables, using some of our vases and bowls. IMG_5004Untitled-1

At the recent Valleys Planning Council’s Art for Land’s Sake Show and Sale, Stiles made the most magnificent arrangement, nearly FIVE feet tall!IMG_4992

At the top, you can get a glimpse of one of the most beautiful dahlias – it’s the palest shell pink on the outer petals, and fades to a creamy white on the inner ones. IMG_4982

Sometimes, when we’re closing on Saturday, we give the flowers at the shop to friends who are at the store, and they re-arrange them at home. IMG_5009

We’re expecting the first frost any week now, and once that happens, the dahlias will be gone again for another year. But while they’re here, they bring a lot of joy!

Baubles & Beads

One of our favorite jewelry designers is Angela Caputi, from Florence, Italy, whom Jonathan discovered on a stroll through the city one evening. Although the shop was closed, he made a point of going back the next day, and meeting with Angela and her staff, and then placing an order for Halcyon House Antiques.

We are thrilled to announce that we’ve just received the pieces from her fall line, and they’re fantastic! The colors are so rich and lush. IMG_4202The styles are so chic!IMG_4198

Angela has a great eye for design, and it shows in every piece she’s created. IMG_4200IMG_4195IMG_4591IMG_4631IMG_4637

Come on by and check these pieces for yourself. Remember, the holidays aren’t too far off, and a piece of Angela Caputi would make a great gift for you… or for someone you love.

As always, Eric is happy to chat with you about anything you’ve seen here.

Leather + Luxe

There’s a concept called Rough Luxe, which is elegant luxury with a rough edge to it. Think about a gorgeous wedding band with a rough cut diamond, or a beautiful silk ball skirt with a pair of cowboy boots under it. IMG_4606We recently started showing a line of jewelry which is leather and luxury. Think thin leather lacing with beautiful fresh water and button pearls, pieces of crystal, and bits of abalone shell.IMG_4611IMG_4621IMG_4613IMG_4615IMG_4623IMG_4627

This is a great look and every time you wrap it or tie it, the piece will look a little bit different.

As always, if you see anything that interests you, please contact Eric and tell him that he needs to dust!
