All About Vintage

We started a several month long project yesterday of cataloging all of the vintage goods in our inventory. Over the years we have amassed quite a collection of things so we thought it wise to have images of all the gems from around the globe. Sterling silver, Baccarat crystal, English hotel silver and brass were the beginning points. Each item getting cleaned, polished, re-numbered and lastly photographed. Look for more & more added to our website in the coming months. Above and below some of My Favorite Things Today.



 

 

My Favorite Things Today

My Favorite Things Today is an assortment of goods that have arrived while I have been away. The WK family is super on top of keeping me up to date on new arrivals and products in shop vignettes. I might be at Hawthorne, but a part of me is always planning & thinking about Watson Kennedy. Whether near or far, it is close to my heart, and I feel so fortunate that when we are away, it is all looked after in the most loving way and in the very best hands. Here are some of the images sent my way that are now sent your way!

Many new fun things arriving at both shops as well as making their way onto our website. From jewels, to tasty treats, to just the right gift to give for just about any occasion.

The amount of boxes we take up to recycle at the end of each day is telling to how much new fun stuff arrives. The recycling bins have been overflowing. Lots of new gems added to our shelves these past weeks. Just a few here that I clicked away yesterday. Gifts to give, gifts to keep.









And last, but most certainly not least, oodles of sweets. We have you covered at our First & Spring shop if you are in need of filling some nifty Easter baskets this week-end.

Retail, make that interesting retail, really is about the mix. I think of it like a puzzle. A colorful puzzle filled with all sorts of cool/high quality/beautiful & intriguing pieces creating one big sensory experience. These are the goods that caught my eye yesterday that are My Favorite Things Today.











 

 

My Favorite Things Today

First off, we had the prettiest flurry of big snowflakes yesterday afternoon. The above shot I snapped while running out into the cold in between helping customers. The flakes did not stick but it made for a beautiful late afternoon of feeling like being inside a snow globe. Below some of My Favorite Things Today with new finds as well as some classics that just never go out of style. 








 

 

My Favorite Things Today

While the volume of new goods coming in is not as great in January as other times of the year, we are always getting new things in to freshen up displays and keep tantalizing the eye of all who come shopping for gifts and treats to give, or keep. Here are a few that have caught my attention, both new and tried & true. More and more arriving soon from the shows I am attending and all the orders we are working on daily…






 

 

My Favorite Things Today

The steady hum of all that is the Holidays at the shops–the crinkle of tissue paper lining gift boxes, the tape gun closing up orders, the buzz of the delivery people scanning parcels–all happy sounds of the season for a shopkeeper. I chose a bunch of favorites from the year for the list today. Gifts to give, gifts to keep, as I like to say. Some on our website, some not. All available to you if something catches your fancy by giving us a call or sending me an e-mail. A very lovely December Saturday to you all in your part of the world!













 

 

My Favorite Things Today 

The marathon retail race has begun. So many treats being unpacked each day, so many treats being wrapped up as gifts for customers each day. The steady hum of the tape gun closing up boxes to be shipped all around the globe is in the air. Below My Favorite Things Today and as always, not everything makes it on to the Watson Kennedy website, so if something catches your eye, give us a call at one of the shops or shoot me an e-mail. Happy Thursday everyone!
