As promised hereÂ 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 leafÂ mirror. This is really spectacular and I keep pairing it with the color turquoise in my mind.
Oh the beloved chinoiserie chandelier, keep it as is or paint it yellow, aqua, red whatever you likey
Vanessa de Vargas owner of Turquoise would go wonky in Karen’s Attic,Â some of the key decorative elements surrounding Vargas’ green campaign chest are in Karen’s store now.

An Italian gilt chandelier, wow the patina on this thing, you have to see it!
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?Â The whiteÂ French wash basin at Karen’sÂ 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.
