Christmas shop in Oxford

Happy Thanksgiving friends! We are thankful to all of the folks who've shopped with us this year! We'e had a blast finding stuff for the booths and hope to keep on growing! This little business provides us a great creative outlet and lots of mother-daughter bonding, and for both of those we are grateful! So thank you for making it possible!

There are tons of sales and events in Oxford tomorrow for Black Friday! We know there is nothing like the square at Christmas time, but be sure to head down University Avenue and stop in Sugar Magnolia! We still have some cute felt ornaments and other decorations left! As well as home goods to spruce up around the house!

new merchandise and Christmas Open Houses

We have lots of updates! We've updated merchandise in both locations- Sugar Magnolia and Tin Pan Alley.  There are Christmas ornaments and decorations in both booths, as well as many gifty items. It's a great time of year to spruce up the house before company comes too!

 Above you can see some of the decorations we've got in the Tin Pan Alley location. You'll have to trust me that Sugar looks just as great!

There are Christmas Open Houses at both locations and we'll update with more details as we know them.

Sugar Magnolia- Saturday November 19th
Tin Pan Alley - Saturday December 3

Hope you'll visit us soon!

P.S. We loved meeting so many of you at the Oxford Holiday Market a few weeks ago!

Oxford Holiday Market

We are busy, busy getting ready for the Oxford Holiday Market coming up in a few weeks! Mark your calendar for November 4-5th for this great excuse to do some Christmas shopping in Oxford! We have some great items for our booth ranging from gift items to wrapping supplies, to decor and unique found objects. Hopefully over the next few weeks we can give you some sneak previews!

We participated in this event last year and had a blast and know this year will be just as great.  
For more information on the Oxford Holiday Market contact the Oxford CVB at 662.232.2367.

we've been busy, busy, busy the last few months! it seems like everytime i get a good photo of something it sells before i post it.... not complaining by any means. so... for now, bear with the camera phone pics and check out some of the great stuff we have in our sugar magnolia booth.

I love that nail head chair, it would be great as an extra chair to pull up for extra seating at a dining table, or as a desk chair, or perhaps tucked in a corner of a bedroom.   Those plaid pillows peaking out of the box next to the chair are some of my favorites. That fabric has a ralph lauren feel to it to me! And that metal g came is an old letter from a sign. We had an E too, but my friend snapped it up to hang in her son Ethan's bedroom.

it's hard to see the table in this photo, but it is a perfect breakfast table! We've also got some great serving pieces, dishes and glassware right now.

Lastly, this turquoise cabinet is one my newest favorites.... this picture does not do it justice, but it provides great storage without taking up too much room and the color is really pretty.

that and much more are in the booth right now! go check it out...

sneak preview: rustic frames coming soon!

in the next few weeks we hope to have some frames made from this awesome reclaimed wood flooring that was used when my husband and I remodeled our house! The floors were reclaimed from a factory in Virginia and are made of maple and are really gorgeous! These are a few samples that we are working on, the finished product might look a little different, but I couldn't resist giving a sneak preview for our blog readers!

Also coming up soon- some unique Christmas decorations- but more on that in another post! In the meantime check out all our current inventory in Sugar Magnolia in Oxford, Mississippi and Tin Pan Alley Antiques in Taylor, Mississippi.

Another great chair....

This might be the best looking chair we've gotten recovered in a while! Pardon the picture quality and trust me, you want to go check this one out! the fabric is gorgeous ( and not demin as it appears here) and is very versatile. This could go in any style home!

We're loading up and taking it to Sugar Magnolia in about an hour!

soy candles

Amy ( kathy's daughter-in-law and mk's sister-in-law) makes these great eco-friendly soy wax candles. we've got them in the Sugar Magnolia booth if you are interested. Check our her blog for more pictures and information.

we are loving chairs....

Apparently we can't get enough cute chairs these days! Check out our newest addition. It won't be in the booth until next week but I wanted to give y'all a little sneak preview...

Don't you just love ticking? This one is slip covered, which is a great look and is very practical for college houses, or for those with kids or pets!

This table is coming too.

Have a great weekend!

wouldn't these be cute together?

we think so! Hope you'll stop in Sugar Magnolia this week and check them both out, as well as some other great stuff we are adding to the booth at the end of the week.

wood deer heads

At our location in Taylor, Mississippi we have one of these wood deer heads. The carving is beautiful and is a great alternative for those who don't want a real deer head in their house, or just don't have one! 

Let us know if you are interested! 

P.S. this reminded me of this post on little green notebook about butterfly taxidermy and those who don't want real butterflies.

a new chair....

we dropped off this great new chair at Sugar Magnolia yesterday. It's a neutral linen on the back and is a good, old chair with new clothes on! I feel like this one will get snatched up fast!

There is lot's of other great stuff at our location in town ( and in Taylor too) this photo below gives a quick glance. The pine chest is so pretty!

Stop in today if you are looking for something new!

inspiration: actress Keri Russell's home.

This month's Elle Decor Magazine featured actress Keri Russell's home. It's a great source for inspiration on how to use reclaimed materials, and feature unique pieces in your home. Check out the article here.

oh, and I also blogged about this and featured more pictures over at my personal blog, an unlined page.

No Posts but lots of new stuff!

We've been slacking on the blog, but not on the booths! we've got some great stuff just in time for all those who may be moving this summer, or just looking for a little something new to spruce up your house! Check out both locations this week for new stuff arriving tomorrow.

A few items that will be arriving: a pine chest, a great pair of lamps, a perfect side table with turquoise knobs and much, much more!

you like? we have.

Wouldn't this be cute hanging by the back door to leave little notes on? Or maybe in a kitchen for grocery list or diner ideas. We spotted it over at remodelista ( our favorite source of inspiration) and were excited since we happen to have some in the Sugar Magnolia booth!

I wish i could take it all home with me! Since I can't.... if you see something you want, it will be available either the Sugar Magnolia or Tin Pan Alley tomorrow afternoon! This is just a taste of the neat stuff we've got in stock right now!

As always, see something you like and aren't in Oxford-- let us know!

We've had a lot going on around here.... but we wanted to let you few and faithful blog readers know that we've expanded! In addition to our location in Taylor, we are also now selling items at the Sugar Magnolia in Oxford! We've got great stuff at both locations, so be sure to check them out!

Edison Light!

You could use this in any room in the house and it would make a statement.

Stop in and See.......

I got these great looking posters in from John Weinham. I framed them in a dark grey wood frame and they look awesome. I know you will love them I want them in my kitchen.There are six posters, one would look great or all six in a group.

Can you tell what this is? hah. It is a full car ( and a very fast moving Kathy) heading home from auctions this weekend! My camera phone couldn't really capture it well, but we were stuffed to capacity with some great new stuff. Hopefully it will all be available by Friday!

Izola Shower Curtains...

My mom came across this post on remodelista about these Izola shower curtains. Don't you love them? I sure did when we were at market in Atlanta back in the summer, and snagged a few for the shop ( and one for my own bathroom!) Well, we've still got a few, and have some matching soaps to match ( You might remember the Design*Sponge post we blogged about that mentioned the soaps?)! They are a great way to give you bathroom a little retro vibe and spruce up for the New Year! Go check them out!

French Vases

while browsing blogs this morning I came across this post and the photo below on one of my favorite blogs, Carolina Postcard.

Bonnie snapped this photo in Anthropologie, but I am reposting it to say we snagged some of those awesome metal french vases, pictured above, for the booth when we were in Atlanta. I also picked up 3 green ones for my own house!

p.s. don't you just love paperwhites? (also pictured above)

Snow Day Reading....

It's cold and snowy here today-- we got 8 inches last night-- which has pretty much shut down this little Mississippi town, so if you are warm and snuggled inside like me, we thought you might enjoy some snow day reading. Here are a few posts from around the web that we think you should check out:

a great post ( and giveaway) about using stencils....

we love these funky lights from one of my favorite stores.....

this would be a fun project for a winter day, and a great happy for a friend or to keep for yourself...

and this store looks like somewhere i'd like to go....

stay warm!

Happy New Year!

hope your 2011 is off to a great start! the first 10 days of 2011 have been very jammed packed for us... we headed to atlanta on a buying trip and hit up Scott Antique Market and Love Train Antiques. We scored some great items for the booth and for our personal homes and got lots of great inspiration!

here are a few shots from inside Love Train--they also own a more high end furniture line we saw at market last summer called BoBo Intriguing Objects that is to die for....

If your New Year's resolution is to spruce up your house-- let us know how we can help!
