How Quaint


Yesterday was the first day this week that wasn't jam packed with errands or appointments so I stopped by the occasional shop in town, How Quaint.  It is open one weekend a month with a new theme and goodies each month.  The preview photos on their facebook page were full of vintage decorations this month, so that was enough to get me back in.  Since the store is just a few blocks from the quilt store, I thought some of you that travel through or in the Twin Cities might find it of interest.

I love this champagne colored Christmas tree...



And this sled and Shiny Brite ornaments in their original boxes...



Love the poinsettas...



And if I had unlimited space this red sled on the bottom would have been mine or perhaps the vintage map in the background?



I thought these white enamel lights had an eclective vintage/modern look.



Vintage cookies cutters...





Love how this truck is decorated!


Lots of fun stuff! So if you come to my little town to check out the LQS (which I absolutely love because it has just the perfect balance of modern and traditional), try and come of a weekend that you out How Quaint too.  They are open this weekend and then their next sale is January 19-22nd.  If you want to make a day of it, two quilt shops to the west would be Make it Sew in Chanhassen and then Heavenly Patchwork in Waconia.  Two quiltstores that are south would be Quilting by the Hearth in Lonsdale and Quilter's Dream in Montgomery.  And if you are the power shopping, skip lunch so I can shop more type...you should be able to hit all these places in a day!

I love love love the champagne tree! I wish I could find something like that near me! My husband wants a fake tree this year because we're not home for actual Christmas and the tree is always such a hassle, but I would only do it if it were like this or flocked! I am going to see if I can find one now... Thanks for the peek!

What a neat looking shop. I'd love to visit it if we lived closer.

Those cookie cutters are the same my grandmother use to own. I have pictures of me cutting sugar cookie dough with them. :) Fun shop!
