Well, hello 2014!

happy new yearHere we are 15 days into the new year and so excited for a new season.    We’ve been to market and received our inspiration for the coming year.   I can see that 2014 will be an awesome year in home décor.   The question “what’s new” always pops up.   We noticed that the lovely pastels and metallic are as beautiful as ever.  We also saw cobalt blue making an awesome statement, both in décor and accessories.  We still maintain that your home should be an extension of what you love, so if the new colors and trends sing to you, by all means, embrace them.   If not, stick with what you love!   There is absolutely something for everyone.

We are anxious to get our spring transformation of the store underway and will be all ready to go March 5th.   See you very soon!

Fall at Mini Bazaar

100_3160

Fall at Mini Bazaar….what can I say?  The new displays for this season are simply stunning.  The warmth and color pallet of fall has got to be my favorite.   We’ve worked some long hard hours to accomplish this magical fall makeover, and you’ve got to come see for yourself.  As we’ve been working we’ve tried to put together a few design tips.

We’ve found one thing for sure and that is:   opposites attract.  Not only in relationships, Jay and I are proof of that, as he is so mellow……and I’m….not.   Opposites may or may not work in relationships, but it’s a great approach when it comes to interior design.

The first of our tips is to pair light and dark colors.  Black and white is always a timeless classic.  Cream and navy are another personal favorite.  Try light colored art on a dark wall, or if you’ve got dark floors, zip it up with light rugs.  A light piece of furniture next to a darker one works wonders, too.100_3143

Tip #2   Everyone should choose an impact spot for fall.  If you don’t do another thing, dress up your front door for the season.  Every one who goes by will enjoy your tribute to autumn.  Another easy spot would be a buffet or hutch.  An entry table or coffee table is a perfect place for pumpkins or some simple fall foliage.Fall decor

Tip #3  is to blend the elegant with the every day.  I love this concept in creating table settings or arrangements.  Throw pillows and fabrics can make a room delightful.   When you add something new to your home, look around for your favorite antiques or heirlooms to pair with your new purchase.  Your place can speak to you as well as your visitors.fall mini 2013 005

Tip #4.   Lighting… A  new pair of lamps could be exactly what your tired room needs.  We’ve got more fabulous lamps this season than ever before.  Our selection is fantastic.  Add some excitement or fun by using our new overhead pendants lights.  They have added a fun flair wherever we placed them.  Chandeliers are just as popular as ever and can change an ordinary place into an extraordinary

We’ve received all of our new and beautiful art, mirrors and so many lamps that our back room is overflowing.  Once again, my eyes are bigger than my store when it comes to buying product for a new season.  Everything was just too good to pass up!

Our Fall and Halloween décor is ready to roar.  We’ve been painting like crazy and you’ve just got to see what we have in store for you.  Truly inspiring!

See you soon.

Sept. 4 through Oct. 12

Wednesday through Saturday

10am-6pm

 

Note*  Our DELIGHTFUL Christmas event begins on Nov. 6th.

 

Still loving green!

     I know that I mentioned green in our note before we opened in March, but when spring arrives, I just crave green….so much that I have to bring it inside the house, too.  (Although, I must admit, that I’ve been taking the robins nest out of the wreath on our front door, every time they build it this year.  I don’t really like the white streaks down the door that they leave behind.  So much for the cute little baby birdies.)  
     We’ve got great green in our moss mats, small pots, and of course our ornamental balls.  Green is great!  We’re patiently waiting for more freight to arrive before we open on May 4th, and also bringing out the fun summer merchandise.  I know I say it for every season, but it’s just such an exciting time of year, and this may be my favorite.
     On a personal note, we are so excited for our son-in-law, Jason.  He has finally received his call to go for his evaluation at Duke in NC, in preparation for his lung transplant.  He is truly an inspiration to all of us, and actually anyone that meets him…including his doctor in LA.  It’s going to be a long hard road ahead, but he’s ready.  
     So, come on summer.  We are ready.  Mothers Day, Graduation, Fathers Day, Weddings, Baseball, 4th of July, whatever.  We love this time of year.
Summer hours….Fridays and Saturdays   10am-5pm   through July 28th

After Christmas Sale

We hope that everyone had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.  I found a channel that is still playing Christmas music and cannot believe that I’m not getting sick of it.  The music just seemed extra good this year.  I promise, I’m changing channels soon.
Yes, we are having a one day sale on Saturday, January 2nd, from 10am-4pm.  Sorry we’re closing so early, but we have a very fun bridal shower that we’d like to attend!  Yes, Grace’s daughter, Maggie, is getting married very soon.  Such fun….planning a wedding at Christmas time.  :)
Anyway, back to the sale.  We are making way for spring merchandise by clearing our remaining Christmas and other merchandise, too.  It will be a great sale and we hope to see you there!
