Dreaming of a new look? Need a change for the summer? or just an item for the wall so you're NOT "looking at the same four walls"?

Weddings & Whatnot

A local florist chose us to help stage her Wedding Faire space with one-of-a-kind items that would showcase her beautiful arrangements. The outcome was creative and unique!! Just what any bride would hope to have!

Available in our LARGE storefront - NOT TOO SHABBY, and also the small annex of SHABBY-ETTE - many treasures for rental. From arches to urns... and everywhere in between.

Couldn't you just picture this bistro set for a guest book?? or maybe as the pedestal for a small cake? A tall angel sculpture at your entrance with a greeting hanging from her neck? Weddings alone are not the only bright spot on a summer calendar. Use these ideas to compliment any social function! Let your mind think out of the box.....

Got Guests??

Have out of town guests for the summer? We're a great destination for an afternoon of browsing and lunching. We're near to affordable outdoor dining, and just down the street from even more antique shopping (if you're car isn't packed from Not Too Shabby or Shabby-ette)!

If you need to host a dinner party, small reunion or family celebration - we've got a party place for you to rent. Creatively decorated and ready to go....
