NEWSLETTER - December 2012

 

December-2010-2
 
 
You may have noticed that our December newsletter is coming out in November this year. Well, we've watched the big guys (Walmart, Target, Costco, etc.) begin their Black Friday sales on Monday, and we've seen more than one Cyber Monday sale that began on Thursday, so we thought we'd beat the rush by announcing our December specials in November.
 
This newsletter contains links to two pages of listings - the first with more than two dozen pieces appropriate for gift giving, the second with small antiques that have been on line for a while that we've marked down by 30% or more. Of course, there are many more items on sale in our shop, and we'll be open on the next four Sundays.
 
In addition to these links, you'll also find a brief pictorial from our recent visit to Rome and some up-to-date pictures of our showroom - and all of our regular features, too.
 
We hope you'll take a few minutes to have a look.

New Listings for December
 
This month we list some of the most gift-appropriate smalls, paintings, and jewelry in our inventory. In this newsletter you'll find more than two dozen pieces - many priced at less than $50, and several others for under $100. If you're looking for something very special, you'll find a handful of spectacular pieces of jewelry. All of these pieces are subject to a 10% discount and include free shipping. 
 
Of course, as the photograph illustrates, there are additional fresh items on display in our shop. If you're still looking for gift - be it a stocking stuffer or a pièce de résistance, you might want to click  the picture above or, better yet, stop in on some Sunday.
2012 Special Holiday Sale
 
30% off
selected pieces
 
What if we were the only business in North America not having a Holiday Sale? Unthinkable, right?

 
Right, indeed. So we've chosen more than two dozen appealing smalls and reduced their prices by 30% or more. You can have a look at them by clicking here. (Please note, because we're offering many of these at a loss, we can't include free shipping for individual pieces in this sale.)
A Gift for the Holidays
 - a few pictures from our recent trip to Rome -
Rome
 
Last October, before coming home from our buying trip to England, we spent a few pleasant days in Rome. We enjoyed many of the city's most famous attractions, ate lots of great food, and took long walks through a few of Rome's less touristy areas.
 
As usual, we took scores of photographs and have assembled a small photo journal of our trip. We invite you to click on this picture of the Coliseum to visit our Roman photo gallery.

The Back Page
Charcuterie
 
This year we celebrated Thanksgiving an unconventional manner with Jan's two children, Chris and Lindsey. Rather than Thursday noon, we feasted on Friday evening, and instead of turkey, our main ingredient was pork. We remained faithful to the spirit of excess that marks the day by serving several portions of vegetables, as well as soup, salad, and dessert. For a picture and description of our main course, click on the picture of the charcuterie with which our evening began. 

We wish you the happiest of holiday seasons. Thanks for being a subscriber.
