For Your Collection...

I love collecting little pieces I find beautiful and arranging them into interesting and colorful displays. Every time I walk by my china cabinet below I can't help but smile. And I am so thrilled when I find a new piece to add to it!

Below are a couple of wonderful pieces to add to your china cabinet, hutch or other fabulous displays! Vignettes of collections are a wonderful way to paint a picture of your style. Just buy what you love and it will work!

The Thrill of the Hunt

One of the best things about antique shopping is seeing what unique items you may stumble upon. Here at Wexford Antiques we have a fabulous selection of antiquities from whimsical to romantic to traditional. Just take a look!

The funky swag above looks like it came from Anthropologie.

A clock fit for someone who loves to surround themselves with romance.

Perfect for the girlie tweens room... will still look sophisticated next to her Twilight posters!

After peacocks, I am in love with anything that has a rooster! This weather vane will add a French Country feel to any home.

Vintage Glamour...Jewels of the Week

As I peruse Wexford Antiques and begin to learn, or should I say discover the merchandise, I am finding inspiration just about everywhere. As a new dealer here in Pittsburgh, I am finding it difficult to resist the temptations throughout the store. One thing I can say for sure is that the vintage jewelery selection is top-notch and definitely deserves a shout out.. so much so, I will do it weekly.

What is so fabulous about vintage jewels is that they have impacted fashion in such a huge way that we see their inspiration in current pieces!

Hello men...what girl in your life wouldn't love one of these rhinestone brooches! All the more romantic because you can tell her you found it at the cutest little antique shop!

The best part is that most of the pieces just look like a splurge. You can find a spectacular addition to your jewelry box without breaking the bank!
Next week I will be featuring some fabulous bracelets!

Paris Apartment

One of the great things about Wexford Antiques is that we have such a wide variety of styles. Take the whole "Paris Apartment" look. Who would expect to find treasures that look like they were purchased in the streets of Paris here in Pittsburgh. Just a few of the many fabulously French treasures you will find are below!

A signature leopard print piece is classic french! The leopard print on this chair paired with the detailed carving would make a perfect addition to any living room.

This angelic lamp with fringe is both elegant and classic... you sure won't see anything like this at a traditional lighting store!

This armoire is so super glamorous! Perfectly suited for a couture collector!

This piece is actually a base for a table, however, I could see this hung above a bed with sheer fabric draping down to create quite the romantic boudoir.

Love her! What french inspired room does not have a fabulous plaster bust. Sit her on top of a piano or on your buffet and you have quite a chic statement!
