The Latest From Linen Haus!

I had great luck finding unique pieces for Linen Haus at one of our local flea markets over the weekend.  The hardest part of setting up this shop is letting go of these beautiful finds!  A few might become a permanent part of my personal collection; however, most of these will be added to the inventory and find a great home via Linen Haus very soon.

This guy is so fun to work with, which is a big part of why I love doing what I do!

These bottles were hidden away a bit in this great old trunk, covered a bit by some burlap. 
I love the thrill of the hunt!

There seemed to be a lot of old trunks at this market.  If you or a client are looking for a special one, let me know.  I'll be there again often.

Until Linen Haus opens, if you're interested in any of these items,
please contact me at directly.
