Takin' It To The Streets

The streets of Danville, CA that is! Did you make it to the Heartland Antique and Art Faire over the Memorial Day weekend? Room With A Past was there in full force, selling goodies, and passing out our calender postcards to new customers who were happy to have found us!

There were lots of booths selling antiques, handcrafted items, ephemera, jewelry, vintage clothes, furniture and supplies.

The event was organized in (a huge) part by Marcia Harmon, of Cottage Jewel, (who must have the energy of a bumblebee because she was buzzing all over the place!) Here she is below in a rare photo caught on high-speed film!
And here's a peek inside her Cottage Jewel's new location at 100 W Prospect Ave, which is now open and ready for business.
Anita was at the helm inside (below), while Marcia was outside at the faire flitting about making sure everyone was having a great time.
Our very own Mandi had a booth at the faire with (one of the nicest people you'll ever meet) Sue Somers. Sue used to own "Weekends At The Cottage" in Clayton, CA (yes, I can hear you all quietly weeping because you still miss that store as much as I do!)
Don't forget that the next Room With A Past opening is coming up next week on September 17, 18, 19 & 20th. We'll be having our parking lot sale on Saturday the 19th, with free appraisals! Need more info? Call us at (925) 933-1903.


  1. Oh my gosh, I answered YES to everyone of the questions on your sidebar. Well, except the last! After all, I live in New Jersey!

    I signed on as a follower -- anyone so in love with "rooms with a past" is a kindred spirit!

  2. Thanks Cass! We're so glad you're a ROOMIE because "the more the merrier"! Hope you can come for a visit sometime and stop by to say "hello"--we'd love to meet you!
