Cottage Flair ... About Me
I have always enjoyed searching for and rescuing vintage pieces. I started as a child, tagging along with my parents to endless tag sales, antique shows and flea markets. What a thrill it was when I found a treasure.
Along with this I have always loved decorating and I have been a decorative painter for 30 plus years. Finding a neglected vintage piece of furniture and giving it new life exemplifies the shabby chic cottage style of decorating. I choose pieces with great character and sturdy construction. Outdated pieces newly painted and distressed become beautiful shabby chic treasures for any decorating style. Combining objects that are complimentary to each other rather than a perfect match can add so much character to your home.
I was extremely fortunate to be able to be in business with my mother for many years, joining her in her retail store. We shopped trade shows together and I learned so much from her. She has since retired but she still has a hand in my business.
Now through my retail shop and website I am able to offer my customers what I think are wonderful decorative accessories, gifts, fashions, baby items & so much more.
I hope you find just what you are looking for (and some surprises you were not) here at Cottage Flair.
So pull up a chair ... grab a cup of tea ... and enjoy!
Thank you for visiting !!!
