My new apothecary jar!

Pin It Now!

You may remember this beautiful apothecary jar from my previous posts about my favorite little shop, Vintage & Vogue in downtown Campbell, California. I stopped in there last weekend and was I ever shocked when they told me they had something for me and then walked out with this!!! OHHHH MY GOSH...I LOVE IT!!!! I brought it home and filled it with lemon drops! It's so beautiful!

And guess what else I found out on my visit there? They will be opening an online shop soon!!! Now you will be able to shop at Vintage & Vogue too! I'll be sure to let you know as soon they are open for business!

Did they just give it to you??? How come you all have such nice stores out in the west? I envy you all.. nothing much out here in the east.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Yes, it was a gift! I told them I couldn't possibly accept it but they insisted!

Wendy said...

That is gorgeous! I'm not surprised they gave it to you as a gift ~ they are so nice. I accidentally broke a beautiful glass tray and offered to pay for it but they didn't want me, too. When I signed their guestbook, they jokingly said to write "Butterfinger" next to my name : )

It's really lovely, Cindy :o)

Hi Cindy,
What a lovely surprise for such a lovely person. I love lemon drops too, and haven't had any in ages.
think I might have to get some.
The candy jar is really gorgeous,
so was your old one. The book was really neat too, saw the post where you showed the pics in the book, how neat is that!!
Looking forward to checking out their online store.
Hope you have a great day hon,
Blessings, Nellie

I'm so excited that Vintage & Vogue are opening an online store, Cindy! I've loved the pics you have posted of prior shopping trips there! Congrats on the gift.

Lucky you. There are still lovely treasures to be found in the U.S. Over here in the U.K. it's getting harder and harder to find those gorgeous little pieces.Enjoy your lovely jar and enjoy it all the more as you didnlt have to pay for it.

Great jar. Looking forward to their online shop. It's quite a hike from Boston to California.

Hi Miss Cindy,

Absolutely beautiful apothecary jar. Is it lead crystal... it looks like it with all the fancy cuttings in the shape of the glass as well as the cuttings into the glass itself. I'll bet it's gorgeous with light shining through it. Great fortune just finds you wherever you go, huh? Good for you. Hugs, Penny Sue

Hi Cindy
How nice of them to give you a new jar. It really is beautiful. Nice spot for it also and filled with yummy lemon drops too.

Now...is THAT place close to SanFrancisco..probably not now that I write that because you are a bit away from SanFrancisco. Do you know any cute shops I could visit while I'm there in a couple of weeks?

have a lovely evening
Judi
