End of year,End of an Era.......

They say that all good things come to an end-this year has been no exception.
We apoligise for the lack of blogs recently but our lives have been consumed by sadness & dealing with it has taken up more of our time than we imagined.
Our dearly beloved friend sadly passed away after bravely fighting the after-effects of a Transplant operation & a week before that tragedy we also lost our dearly beloved Phoebe-our precious elderly old Lady Dobermann who was 11.7 yrs young.......
A more beautiful gentle creature you could never meet-we miss her so very much...

So unfortunately we have been consumed with sadness when Christmas Time should really be a Happy event.
As an obvious result,our enthusiasm for searching out treasure has been somewhat diminished and we have scaled-down accordingly to reflect,and to prepare for the next stage-the Festive Season.

Happily-a fabulous & reviving highlight for me was flying back to the UK for a few days to attend my princess Granddaughter Erin's 2nd Birthday Party-hard to believe she is two years old already! For regular followers of our blog you will remember me fighting through the heavy snow in Kent & only just making it back to France in the Snowstorms of  December 2010 - to be woken at 6am in the morning with a phonecall informing me she had made her entrance into the world 5 weeks early!
Well I made sure I didn't miss her 2nd party & was there in plenty of time to taste this divine Birthday Cake!-it was Gorgeous!! All sparkly & twinkly Pink & Lemon Icing-fitting for a little Princess-It was like a giant Cupcake!!
Her little face was an absolute picture as Mummy walked towards her with the candle lit & ready to blow out...........a joy to behold!
We will be having a huge clearout in the coming weeks and there will be multiple item listings & low starting prices for your perusal when you've watched all the festive TV you can digest and want some alternative entertainment-rather like a January Sale but without having to trudge round the shops or get trampled on in the processs! So keep your eyes peeled for some potential bargain buys on our Auction Site & we gladly combine postage costs to make it all the more attractive to shop till you DON'T drop!
So for now it is Merry Christmas to all our wonderful customers-thankyou for your support throughout 2012-it is so greatfully appreciated.
Hopefully 2013 will bring us all happier days,success & Good Fortune-and we will continue to strive to bring you the unique & unusual Chic Shabby Vintage Treasures you all love so much!
 So for now it is Joyeaux Noel!
and we share precious memories of our friend John-taken from us in his prime,gone too soon...
