The one about Texas and the silent auction at the shop
Hi, so I leave for Texas in 20 days for the big antique fair centered around my favorite haunt Zapp Hall. I'll need some space for my fabulous finds when I get back, so I'm implementing a silent auction on some great pieces in the shop that need a new home. This is how it works: I've placed bid forms on the items up for auction. The starting bid is way below cost. You will be called or emailed on April 1st if you are the high bidder. Daybed - SOLD
Vintage potting table with gazebo attached SOLD The wonderful 1953 bullfighting poster I bought on my first trip to Texas antique fair - SOLD
My gorgeous circa 1880 paper mache over wood Madonna. I love her. Still available...
A lot of customers got some really great deals, much more than this sold. Feel free to steal the idea if you leave more than 50 miles away, just be sure to give me credit :)
Saffron and Genevieve 910B Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz, California 95062 Inside a spacious and lovely Victorian with twelve foot ceilings and wood plank walls, Saffron and Genevieve offers a delightful mix of comfortable furnishings, antiques and offbeat gifts. I hand pick everything in the shop, and don’t tend to bring in anything I would not have in my own home. I sell both old and new, but the new better be very special because I have a connection with the old, the stories and soul of a piece are almost as important as the beauty (or ugliness). I design my own furniture and lighting, refurbish vintage upholstered pieces and repurpose any interesting treasures I can get my hands on. I am not trendy, and prefer a finished home to look timeless, classic, and whimsical. It should be comfortable and work with the way you live. There are no hard and fast rules in my book, I like to make them up as I go. This blog is about my shop, and me, the merchandise for sale, interior design, buying trips and special events. Most of the merchandise featured is for sale and shipping can be arranged. Please call or email for availability: 831-462-4506. Thanks for looking!
