Oh my goodness. Wouldn't this just make the most romantic bedroom ever? Every bedroom SHOULD have a fireplace (mine does not but oh how I wish). This is traditional oak with extra trim and a very nice size for any cozy spot in your home. You must see this!

Okay, gals, if you can't have the fireplace how about a woven blanket, throw, duvet cover, or pillows made in the traditions of old? These are so soft.....and warm. Guess you might not need that fireplace after all. I folded these items today and wanted to put my head on the throw and take a nap. You will, too!

Chenille. Still the hottest fabric around. It brings back memories, feels good on your skin, and our color choices are so cool. 



Have you ever had a desire to become Betty Crocker? You can look the part with these home made detailed aprons. Who knew that aprons would make such a comeback? I wear one every day at the shop even though the young whipper snappers don't ever want to wear one. Where do they keep their Kleenex and chocolate? I need my pockets for this.

We've sold several of these x-tra large compasses.......hang above the mantle (see the wonderful mantle above), on a wall. Make a statement with this piece. Did I mention its red? RED!

Find a fun place to go so you can wear this vintage-inspired sweater in beautiful colors. You can make a grand entrance because it has its own crocheted flower placed on the front. This is so cute and its getting lots of attention. We have now ordered this beauty two different times. Several size choices available.

Wonderful vintage inspired scarf

Many new t-shirts just in! These are the softest cloth; the best colors for this season and next, and you can add a scarf or two to jazz them up even more. Jamie says to wear our long sleeved basic tees underneath the glamorous styles for an even trendier look. You will want one, no two.....maybe even three! Great for the holidays and assorted sizes are still available.

Mixed Crosses tee

Vintage lady with "Don't let the smile and pearls fool you"

Walk down the street with this little rose petaled bag and others will swoon. We offer these bags in many colors - all the most popular, of course. The size and price are just right for anyone! Great gift for the upcoming season.

We've used this old black with white knobs sewing chest to hold jewelry and other accessories. This would hold many pieces of jewelry inside or trinkets that have no home, or scarves stacked inside. Try this piece for a bedside table. You can put your lotions and potions and romantic book inside. 

This little desk has a lot of impact for its size. Great for an entry way or a small dressing table for the bedroom or bath. Lots of detail on the legs and the drawer. Just the ooomph needed for so many uses.

When we found these felted bags in so many different colors at market, we knew we had to have them! They look so expensive, but guess what! They are so affordable. Add a touch of pizzazz with our felted flowers in all colors and sizes and pin them on the purses. Great look!
Felt is becoming more popular as the holidays draw near. (Grab one of these felted flowers and pin it on to the bag)

Felted Flowers

These wonderfully painted - made in America - plaques have room for memos, photos and postcards from A Corner Cottage. The colors are subdued and have the ability to look great in any room of the house. A great gift idea for a family member with grandchildren photos used. Your gift will be the hit of the season.

We've combined reds and blacks in handbags and jewelry and scarves. Put them together and you have quite a classy look.
We love it! Black and red - always in style.

October finds! Happy fall!!!

 If this isn't the cutest little thing.  An authentic wagon cute and the color is wonderful.  Again, try this on a porch with added touches of mums, greenery, pumpkins.  Place in your family room and keep your magazines on it.  Also could be used for a coffee table  and just think - no one else has one like it. 

Oh my, you know how much I love RED!  This little stool could stand on your front porch waiting to greet visitors.  Try setting little pumpkins on each step, with some fall greenery and a battery candle. This will just say "welcome to all" so simply.


This little cutie is just the right size for next to your bed, your easy chair, your bath.  Has wonderful lines and its two shelves will hold all those necessary items we all have.  I love this!

  Beautifully painted rose box - put all your treasures in here!  The colors are so vibrant and this would make an excellent gift for that special some one.

Christine has painted  - on brick if you can believe it - the cutest little halloween characters ever.  This is one talented family.  Only two left so buy these asap!

 Brad has painted and enlarged another beautifully executed painting of our historic downtown courthouse.  You asked - he delivered! 

Scarecrow flags, pumpkin flags, and Thanksgiving flags, oh my!  Don't forgot to show off the outside of your house during the coming holidays.
We've got the touches to do just that!

Our booth of salvage items, with ideas galore to satisfy your craving for different!  We'll show you how to use, talk you through ideas, and help you create a wonderfully unique design just for your own home.  Ask us - our ideas are inspirational and FREE!

After many months of waiting, our beautifully bubbled glass hurricanes are back in stock.  We have the urban (silver) and the country (rustic) and these are amazing when filled with treasures from outside, seasonal, your own trinkets, etc.  The possibilities of giving these your own touch  are endless.   Show stoppers in all sizes and shapes.

With the cooler temperatures, the fashion bug is bound to hit you!  We have so many new handbags in stock.....all colors, all stylish, all pretty price points.  You won't be able to make up your mind.

Several years ago,  when we first found these candles at market, I wasn't too impressed. These items have come a looooonnnnng way since then.  We have pillars, grubbies, tapers, etc.  again in all shapes and sizes.  These candles are not only battery operated but also have timers.  We set our candles to come on at 11:00 each day and they will "burn" for 8 hours", shut off and then turn on each day at 11:00. Many of our customers tell us they use these for nightlights by setting their timers for 11:00 p.m. and they burn all night.  Maintenance free!  I am a true beliver now.  You may not even know these are run by battery they are so realistic. 

More woven rugs have arrived.  I love the colors - blacks, red, ivorys, stars, all ready to rest your feet on while taking a break, and to make your house a home. 

How french can we be?  Love these burlap/linen pillows with sayings that attract your attention.  Rest these on your sofas and beds and you have a neat new look, and didn't spend hundreds of dollars for it.  Very french and very in!

Something we are so delighted about:  We have wooden plates with painted designs and inspirational verses.  We have a great selection and we think these are extra special.  Becky and Peggy can personalize any of these plates - FREE - while you wait.  They can be one of those unique gifts you are always looking for and couldn't find.   Check out our selection and bring your gift list.  Fun and one of a kind!


When we find these, we buy these wonderful pieces.  All wood, painted nicely to display your treasures of china, figurines, name it!

Rose detail on China Cabinet

 A darling white coffee table/end table.  Perky wallpaper design on top, off white paint.  Just right for that special place.

An ivory end table waiting to grace your home!

What an impact this dresser w/lots of drawers will make in your home.  You do realize you don't have to use a dresser in just a bedroom, don't you?  How about a family room to hold games and movies?  A bathroom to hold towels and toiletries?  A dining room to hold linens?  A kitchen to hold those amazingly difficult to store kitchen gadgets. ..Let your mind go &  come up with all kinds of ideas.  My mind already went!

 We are trying to get ready for the holidays and know you are thinking of the upcoming season, too.  Don't forget we sell a full line of Wind and Willow dip and Country Home Creations dip and other delights, and Rothschild gourmet.  You will make a hit with any of our selections and we provide all the extra recipes you need - hot or cold - to entertain your guests.  Come taste for yourself.
