My Holiday Booth at American Home & Garden~Do you LOVE Iron and Metal?

Words can't explain my OVER JOY of being in my new booth space at American Home & Garden in Ventura, CA.   I wanted to share with you my Holiday booth space.  Do you LOVE Iron and Metal like I do?  OMG do I have some eye candy for you!   I just adore heavy metal, cast iron, wrought iron, galvanized metal, industrial, you name it...if it is HEAVY.....I LOVE IT!!
So here are some pics of my new Holiday booth:

Fleur de Lis Iron table with a gorgeous stone top, Tall Iron rose sconces, RARE Iron garden umbrella.....just a few pieces at American Home & Garden now.  Also loving this tall French bottle dryer rack, very rare with the original bottom piece still intact!  Doesn't this make a perfect French industrial Christmas tree?  

Happy Holidays to you and yours!  Looking forward to seeing you at American Home & Garden.  Located at 64 S. Oak St. Ventura, Ca.

American Home & Garden~Best kept SECRET in Ventura, CA

I've been keeping a SECRET!  I've been shopping at this little shop in Ventura, CA.  for some years now...never telling anyone where I found such great treasures.  I mean, the BEST rusty, chippy,  home and garden pieces EVER! American Home & Garden has been my SECRET for years!  All of you know how passionate I am about gardening and I  have found the most beautiful pieces for my garden here.  The dealers all up and down the coast have known about this little hidden gem right around the corner from the Ventura Pier and Fairgrounds, but have always kept it a SECRET!  I call it the best kept SECRET in Ventura...and guess what????  YEP....I opened a new booth space last week Thursday!  YAY...ok there my SECRET is out!!!  I just adore Leslie the store owner and Karen the store manager...and OMG the staff and other dealers are all so warm and friendly...I could spend all day everyday in this shop!
Here are some pictures I snapped today .....Isn't the store front cute?

I just love the clawfoot bath tub filled with Herbs and Lavender.  Rusty garden chairs, are just a sampling of what is in store.

Here are a few pictures of my booth space...I love displaying with Santos Cage Dolls.  The French table runner is the perfect backdrop.

I love Madonna's and you will find plenty of that French Nordic~Jeanne d' Arc STYLE in my booth.  Along with all the Jeanne d' Arc Magazines and books!  I have the books French Atmospheres, Amazing Retreats, The Special Christmas Edition and the 8th and final Jeanne d' Arc Living Magazine all in the store right now!
There is always a dress form or two...or three in the space also!  I think they make a vignette so special..especially love them with vintage rosaries. :)

You will also find lots of vintage bottles and statues.  Rusty tables, chippy painted cabinets and farm tables!  

I will be taking more photos of the store and sharing with you this best kept SECRET in Ventura CA.  soon!
