Solid Gold

As promised here are some of the fantastic treasures at Karen’s Attic, my favorite local consigment store.

I called this post “solid gold” for two reasons. Gold mirrors and accessories were plentiful in Karen’s store and brass and gold are making a huge come back right now.

I’ll begin with my favorite item in the store, a vintage gold leaf  mirror. This is really spectacular and I keep pairing it with the color turquoise in my mind.

Karen has a consignor who frequently brings the flair of the Far East from Palm Beach. Nice tabletop Buddha.

A pair of modern chairs from the 1970s. Karen says the chairs are getting a lot of inquiries. At $86 each, they are likely to sell quickly. They need to be recovered.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?  The white French wash basin at Karen’s is a dead ringer for the one that was made functional in the Coastal Living bath. Karen didn’t believe me when I told her, now she will. HI Karen!

If you don’t live nearby, inquire with Karen about shipping she’s a pretty easy going gal she might be willing to do it.
