As the holiday approaches, Home Again was filled with traditional holiday spirit. It is cold outside but there is plenty of warmth inside. Lots of candles to cast a warm glow. Customers reflecting on their own childhood memories of Christmas past. Downtown shopping in the snow, shoulder to shoulder, beautiful lighted display windows and Christmas music. It was a wonderful year. We stood back and knew it was a job well done. We would like to thank our consignors, friends and family for all of their support. So on to 2012!

Today we decided to see Lewisburg in all the holiday glory. This is the mecca for the antiques and collectibles market. The town is so beautiful at Christmas. Just walk the sidewalks and peek in all the store windows. Just entering the town you will get a warm colonial feel. This is what holiday shopping should be.

Today we started working on our holiday table. The antiqued shabby chairs are almost completed. A burlap ribbon on each and a touch of holly. We adorned the table with a painter's drop cloth and a festive topper! We used a vintage jeweled handbag with a wooden bottom as a centerpiece. The dishes are Pfaltzgraff Christmas Heritage. This is the original pattern. Today they have something different .

The two wing back chairs came to us today and just in time for the holiday season. I would build a fire place in my home just to have these gorgeous chairs flanking each side! The colors are rich jewel tones and the fabric is sumptuous. Cherry wood, lots of gold, and red poinsettias.
Our stunning tea service is the Winthrop Pattern from Reed and Barton.This is a wonderful romantic pattern . Picture a sideboard with this service adorned with an antique silver tray with candles, pink roses, juniper twigs and winter greens. Fragrant paper-white narcissus, crystal beads, mercury-glass candleholders for that added touch of sparkle.

The kick off of the holiday season always starts with the Bloomsburg Antique Show and Sale. This show is a must for the serious collector. Furniture, quilts, primitives,jewelry, glass, china, pottery, advertising, toys, memorabilia, folk art, vintage and whimsical items. So many things that bring back my childhood, especially the Christmas items. Can't wait until the Spring show!

There were a lot of homes in the area, especially our grandparents, that had very narrow stairways and tight corners to the second floor. This made it impossible to maneuver a large bedroom set up to those areas. And that is when it was hoisted to the second or even third floor through the window. Now you know why movers get big bucks.
