Serendipity~ That's what I call it.  Laying on my couch utterly exhausted from a show the day before,  I did what I normally don't do and that is stay stationary...cruising blogs and web sites.  I came across a blog for a store on Coronado Island in San Diego called The Attic.  Intrigued by the pictures she had and the lovliness of her store I contacted her to make an appointment and possible sales, got a response right back and brought some of my wares for her to purchase last Friday.

Just got an email last night and she has already sold some of the bottles and a necklace and wants more!!  Yay!  It's such a great boutique, full of vintage and new furniture, jewelry, home decor, bling, crowns, birds, chandeliers, vintage clothes, soaps, pillows,candles and more.  Their store is keeping up with the latest trends show casing their inventory in clever vignettes in every corner, drawer, shelf (and ceiling!)with very reasonable prices.  Here is the address:
 1112 Tenth Street
  I highly suggest you either take a mini vacation on Coronado Island, home of the Hotel Del Coronado or at least meander the magical island for your self this summer.  It is breathtaking and you don't even have to go far to feel your on vacation!  Just take the Coronado exit off I-5, cross the famous Coronado bridge and your there!  Scroll down to see pictures and click to get close ups.
What glitter girl wouldn't want a vintage crown an prom dress hanging from her ceiling?

Click to see the cute mermaid in a shell

I think Rita  Reade made these cute signs!

Beautiful display of handmade shell flowers

LOVE the dress form and apron!

I want everything in their store
