Camas Antiques...Heading into Spring!

February's windows were a big hit with our customers!

 
Our enthusiastic and energetic dealer, Becky started the month off with a Parisian Café Valentine's Day themed display!
 
 
 
 
Once Valentine's Day had passed, Becky moved the red accents from the window and brought in more greens and yellows, changing up the look completely!
 
 
Thank you for all of your ambition and hard work on the window display, Becky!  You did a fabulous job!
 
 
It's so obvious that Jennifer had fun creating this industrial Route 66 look in the small window and it for sure caught the attention of everyone who passed by!  Thank you, Jennifer!
 
 
Mark your calendars for our annual birthday event!  Camas Antiques is celebrating 11 years on Friday March 20th and Saturday March 21st!  Birthday cake will be served, dealer sales will run Friday - Sunday and the first 50 customers on both Friday and Saturday will receive a gift of lemongrass soap!  Please head over to Facebook and join our event page!
 
 
  
Remember that Downton Abbey inspired servant's bell board in the window display back in January?  It was such a big hit that Tommy made a couple more!  We have one for sale here in the store and another is listed on Ebay!  Find the auction link here.
 
Thank you for stopping by!
 
See you at the store,
JoAnn

Downton Abbey Comes to Camas Antiques!


Amanda of Girl in Pink designed our window displays for January with a fun Downton Abbey theme.  The large window was inspired by the famous Drawing Room,


while the small window represents the Servant's Quarters.





Complete with the Downton Abbey theme song playing softly in the window and a sign welcoming shoppers to the "Downton Abbey in Downtown Camas," the display set the mood for the show's season premiere which aired in the U.S. on Sunday, January 4th.



The impressive servant's bell board was hand crafted by our very own Tommy Taylor!


For January's First Friday, customers dressed up in their Downton Abbey best to explore the windows, test their knowledge of the show with Downton Abbey trivia and discover their aristocratic names!  A great time was had by all!


See you at the store,
JoAnn

Fall is Here!

If you didn't get a chance to stop by and check out the fabulous Fall inspired window display by Michelle of My Shabby Passion this month, do so very soon!  Both window displays will be changing this week!  We have enjoyed having Michelle in the big window this month and so much has sold that the display has been in a constant state of change!  Michelle did a lovely job on this display and all of the sales have kept her busy for sure!
 




 
Chris of Mack and Momma put her heart and soul into this French Circus inspired display!  We hope you've had a chance to stop by and admire every little whimsical detail!  Everything you see here was handcrafted by Chris herself!  She sure is talented and we are lucky to have her here in the store!






 
Stay tuned for the October window displays coming this week! 
 
Hope to see you soon!

Happenings This Month at Camas Antiques


If you've been in lately, surely you have seen Tommy's vintage railroad inspired window display!    This was a fun project for him and a timely one as he will be retiring very soon from 36 years of working for the railroad!

 
We have a special guest in the big window this month.  Kathleen of Faded Charm has brought in a wonderful selection of treasures and set up a beautiful display! 
 
 
We are always happy to have Kathleen join us!  She has a beautiful style!


We recently received a shipment of Artisan Enhancement products in the store!  If you enjoy painting with Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan, these products work well for creating more complex finishes on furniture and other surfaces.


Amanda of Girl in Pink is offering an advanced technique workshop that will introduce you to several of the Artisan products.  She will also continue to teach her popular Introductory to Chalk Paint workshop.  To learn more about workshops at Camas Antiques, visit Amanda's blog.
 
 
Camas Antiques is a proud sponsor of the Downtown Camas Vintage & Art Faire happening on Saturday August, 23rd from 9am-4pm.  This is a fantastic event not to be missed!  For more information and to RSVP, visit our Facebook page event invite!
 
Hope to see you soon!
