Here is a link with

Shop Vintage/Antique while touring the beautiful Maple Rock Gardens.
Watch demos of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and play at the open paint bar.

30 vendors, each with their own unique style.

Plenty of Fall inspiration.

Stay for the day and have lunch. High Hand Cafe will be serving a select menu. 
It's always delicious!

I apoligize for such a long absence on this blog.

 teaching classes using Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan,

Doing custom pieces for customers,

 traveling to New orleans for the annual stockists meeting (we got to meet Annie in person), 

and now once again planning for our show

In case you are new here, 

 3750 Taylor Road Loomis, Ca. 95650
Inside the High Hand fruit sheds.

(High Hand is a 110 year old fruit shed that has a well known restaurant and nursery.  Inside the sheds you will find several small businesses such as a fiber arts store, rug store, wine tasting rooms, art gallery and olive oil and vinigar store and The Vintage Bricoleur.)

We are a small Vintage Home Design store who carries Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan.  We teach classes the third Tuesday of every month 10-12:30 or 6-8:30. $95 All supplies are included in the cost of the class.

We do cutsom painting of furniture using Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan.  Our items are found items so things are always changing.  We build farm tables, hutches, cabinets, benches etc. using reclaimed wood.  Much of what you will find in our store has been made using vintage items by local artists.  

one who makes creative and resourceful use of whatever materials are at hand regardless of their original purpose.
