I thought I should add, This store is named after a street in London, England where a wonderful flea market is, The flea market was shown in the movie "Notting Hill".
I thought I'd share some pictures of where I get to work a few days a month. My friend Jackie Barringer owns the store Portobello Road. It is in an old house in Jefferson Forest, A huge forest Thomas Jefferson once owned. As you walk up the front walkway it is filled with old and reproduction iron work, beautiful urns and planters, and benches. Inside there's vintage and reproduction everything. One of the first things I do while I'm turning all the lights on is look around as I go to see what's new. And what new display has been done or what new display I will need to create. It is just a great place for ladies to meet and shop together, chat about anything and help find just the perfect things to fill a spot at home. Customers love that she carries vintage and new things, local artist work and even cloths and sometimes gourmet food. Thursday Jackie and I finally went treasure hunting together. After all these years we had never antiqued together. We had such a great time, and we found some great things. This time I brought her to all my favorite places, next time she will show me hers.
