The Weekly Six

Posted on: Friday, September 19, 2014

Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six vintage picks. We constantly update our inventory, and we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in! So, without further adieu, we bring you:

1: Fling this Pendleton over your shoulder and jump in the car: where will you go? Its classic look and loads of pockets & zippers will be right there when you need a tissue, some cash, a quick spruce of makeup, chapstick or notebook. What a friend you could have in this Pendleton.




2: Been to Paris and need something reminiscent of the voyage? Never been to Paris and need a reminder of why you are working so hard? Either way, this pen and ink print of the great Eiffel Tower will meet you where you're at, and add a bit of stoic culture to your space. Even the mat board and frame move to you feeling more Parisian.



3: Finely woven and not sure it's ready to be finished, this weave and weaving stand make for just a touch of Old World culture. The West will always feel young to us.





4: A tisket, a tasket, a wooden woven basket. Time to bring out your warm wooly blankets and leave them on hand as the weather turns. A basket keeps your space uncluttered and turns up the cozy!



5: Books, books, books! These classics telling Mother Goose's tales, reciting Longfellow's poems, and Tennyson's Idylls are covered in embossed lettering and illustrations--making these judge worthy covers good for looks or for reading!


6: Time to rewallpaper, not. This wallpaper ruler is 6 feet of measured goodness, and desperately in need of a sewing project or a space in your door jam for measuring the little ones as they grow.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Bag: Stephanie

Posted on: Friday, September 12, 2014

Finally, the bag was mine! It was my turn!!
Oh, where will we go? And what will we do?!

Maybe a margarita and chips will help make up our minds… 



A few days go on and I am still not sure what our story will be, I take a time out from thinkin' and head to the drive-in with friends and treats and blankets. Such a fun event and it never gets old! 


Still wondering what the purse’s adventures hold, Ruby and I take a weekend and head to Los Angeles for a Jenny Lewis concert. We have followed Jenny Lewis for years—so when we discovered her playing at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, Ruby treated me to a ticket and off we went.


Conveniently the Rose Bowl Flea Market was the next morning, so we were off for a day of boot and clothes shopping—when in Rome as they say. It got so hot and we were super hungry, so we jetted over to our favorite Cuban restaurant and had a cupcake for dessert. The purse is definitely getting the hang of this eating and playing business!
Since we were in town, and it was the last day of the play, Once, at the Pantages Theater, off the purse went (we had to take the purse). 






Then back home to take care of business. The purse and I headed out to a few appointments: a dentist appointment (that makes me crazy nervous!) and the best appointment of all. I accompanied one of my besties to a follow up appointment from surgery and was told she is 'cancer free'!!  Best news ever!!!



The next few weeks host a huge event for Ruby and I, she goes off to college! HUGE! Ruby and I have been pretty much Loreli and Rory from Gilmore Girls—late night talks, coffee, road trips, on and on and on. We both feel ready, although we could use a hand, so Kim accompanied us to on the move. She has been through this already and we both were so grateful she came! We arrived at her dorm, and transformed her area.









The next weekend, the Mister and I go for official drop off weekend of festivities and goodbyes. We all have talked about college for years, especially this past year (it’s been nothing but college talk)! We are so ready, having rehearsed all the goodbyes, so we parted surprisingly without tears. This is where she should be and Ruby is so ready.







What comes to mind is the saying “Life is what happens when you are busy making plans.” I didnt know what adventures this bag would have and amidst all my wondering, it was off having a great life alongside me!

Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six vintage picks. We constantly update our inventory, and we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in! So, without further adieu, we bring you:

1: Every good chef has a killer apron somewhere at home, and it is time to pull it out of the attic and into the kitchen. We can only assume this vintage apron with its delicate hand work was made with lots of love, making it a feast for our eyes and inspiration to make an equally scrumptious dinner tonight.





2: Pull up the counter with one of these mod bar stools. With their white leather stitched seats and stainless support, food won't easily stick to them--but we'll bet you have a harder time getting rid of guests once they sit down.





3: Ee-e-e-oh-mum-a-weh, ee-e-e-oh-mum-a-weh. This ancient inspired lion with his concrete mane will scare off the pests and add some flair to your garden as you watch the fall leaves turn.



4: We are the official (self-proclaimed) San Luis Obispo Trading Post, selling the biggest selection of Minnetonka moccasins found this side of Higuera Street. Come on down and check out our black and tan leather shoes, we are sure to have one that fits your feet and your fancy!



5: Mix those native roots with some Western traditions, and snag a rosary necklace to pair with your new moccs. Beaded and saintly, these blessed pieces will keep you livin' on a prayer--just by owning one, you're halfway there.



6: Who made these?? It takes a steady hand and real night owl to create such embroidered masterpieces. Snatch one up for yourself, and see what head turners they are!

Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six vintage picks. We constantly update our inventory, and we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in! So, without further adieu, we bring you:

1: The eagle has landed in our store, and we just can't get him away from the vintage American flags. Since our flag and eagles symbolize freedom, victory and mission, they are great items to display with pride all around!






2: A little turquoise never hurt nobody. This cuff is delicate and bold, and its classic silver and turquoise stylings play well with other bracelets and rings. A real thing of beauty.



3: Whether you want to read, drink tea, people watch or have an evening chat with friends, this white bench swing will add just the right seat to your porch. Or, hang it from the ceiling like we do and get a new perspective on life from above.



4: Deer terrarium anyone? We have three to spare, complete with an array of growing succulent forests surrounding them. These little guys make great office warming gifts for all shapes and ages.



5: Tea time! We love our afternoon teas here at the Rose, and finding a good teapot turns this time into a ceremony. This green ceramic teapot with its tall, slender silhouette, we have a hard time not using it when we need a little a caffeine and sympathy.





6: Romp around the house or romp around town, just romp. The rompers in store right now are as sweet as they are comfortable! Are you the one in bold red with light lace detailing, or one with stronger metal accents and striped all over?
