My Dream House

For many of you that know me know that I have loved the Farrell house for a long time - It was built by Charlie Farrell who built the building that houses Camas Antiques.  It was purchased recently by Heidi Curley - who by the way is wonderful and has shared the house with everyone that attended our recent Holiday Home tour.  I was lucky enough to help with some of the rushed decorating to get the house in shape to show - It was a late night/early morning task - but I loved how my bedroom (in reality it belongs to Heidi) turned out.  My only regret is that I missed Laurie (worthy goods) Cookie exchange.  I am sharing some other photos of the house that I decorated with items from Camas Antiques.
I also decorated a small bedroom for Heidi's daughter Grace - The floral on the wall is a french needlepoint cartoon on consignment at the store.
The store is very busy right now - but lots of great things to look at - Hope to see you soon.

We are full of Holiday Spirit

 Our Holiday Season has begun and the Christmas Music is playing, (much to Margaret's dismay) Holiday candle's are burning & everyone is in a great mood - Even with our crazy busy Holiday open house.  This is a photo of our Cody Foster houses that are filling our small display window.
 This is one of our new dealers Chloe Rose - she has a small space but fills it full and High - I love Her fresh sprigs of greenery.  Christa is so busy it took her forever to come to Camas Antiques but for us it was worth the wait.
Our Faithful customers lining up for Our Holiday sale.
Just sharing more photos of some of our Christmas displays - Please come and see us soon.  JoAnn

Halloween has arrived !!!

     Brocante Vintage brought the chairs in and I went crazy with Polka-dots

I was so excited when I found this vintage cake carrier in the store at the perfect time.

Please join us on First Friday, October first from 5 to 8 pm.  Several businesses in downtown Camas will be sharing creative pumpkins for you to judge.  We will have cookies, Tyler candles will be 20% off, and Dealer "Nest" Halloween will be 10% off.

We had such a good time & had such good weather at our Vintage Street Faire - Thanks to all who attended and also our vendors who had incredible displays.  Most of all thanks to Debbie & Laurie of Worthy Goods for all of their hard work to put it all together.

 I had to share a few photos of Marci & Glen's new space - They do an incredible job - I love the lighting.

See you soon at the store!!!

An Incredible 5 hours.

Last Saturday at Barnhouse it all seemed to happen very fast - it was extremely busy and so much fun.  I can understand why everyone loves to do these shows.  I am so glad joe & jermonne asked us to participate.  I of course forgot my camera that day - Tracey took this photo. 

Everyone was intrigued with the mini-garden that we took to Barnhouse - We sell the small garden pieces in the store.  It is in the store now if you would like to take a look.
In the Middle of all of the Barnhouse set up - Billie (Brocante Vintage) and laura (two birds vintage)  re-did the front window - they have a large space in the back of the store - I love their style.

While we are on the subject of the Barn House Boys thanks to Joe & Jermonne there are great photos of Camas Antiques included.  Please check this Classic Magazine out.
Lila and Amanda of Apronstrings Productions have moved into our small display window.   They were high off of their recent FarmChicks showing - I love their signature chandeliers - and just like me they are over zealous in matching colors.

I love old Iron beds.

I have been waiting patiently to do a window around this bed.  Collecting embroidered pillows, etc.  We have had such great guests in the window I have enjoyed sitting back and watching everyone else make the window look great,  But I have to admit it is fun to put a look together.
After I finished the window - I thought I should have done these colors in my guest room at home.
This is a very tall working wall clock that I orderd from a french company.
I know that I tend to match colors too much - but I just can't seem to help myself.
I love this little chair - see what I mean about the matching colors thing.
Thanks for taking a look - Hope to see you soon at the store.
