It's That Time Of Year

when the world falls in love,
Every song you hear seems to say
"Merry Christmas, "May your New Year dreams come true"
And this song of mine in three-quarter time
Wishes you and yours the same thing, too!

Winter greetings from all us ROOMIES who want to take this seasonal opportunity to say "We love YOU!" We are truly blessed to have customers like you who allow us to do what we love. We wish you a very happy holiday and a healthy New Year!

And speaking of a New Year--have you heard about our New Year's Day sale?

We'll be comfy in our jammies and slippers on New Year's Day, but we won't be in front of the TV watching (another) football game! We'll be laying out a full spread of goodies for you to eat, and making deals left and right from 10 - 3 at the store! You'll find 50% off all holiday items, and on this one day only you can "Deal With The Dealers" for an added discount on our already fabulous prices! That ought to get your New Year off to a happy start! Sign up HERE to get all the details.

Getting It All Wrapped Up

It's a TALL order; getting all the lights up, the stockings hung, setting the sugar plums out for our customers, (and lookin' good while doing it!)

but December is when we really have our (fruit)cake and eat it too. We go "all out" with tons of holiday cheer we've been hoarding throughout the year.

From elegant to kitschy and everything in between. Whether you're just starting out on your shopping adventure (who, me?) or looking for that last little something, you're sure to find that one-of-a-kind gift or needful seasonal item during our December opening!

PLUS--don't forget to look under the tree for a big treat for YOU! We are raffling off a 3' decorated tree that has a $100 GIFT CERTIFICATE hanging on it's branches! Come in December 15 - 18th opening and we'll be glad to help you cross off everything on your list!

November's Sneak Peek!

Have you fallen down on the job again??

Didn't you say last year (about this time) that you would have the house decorated so you could get (insert one:) the baking, the shopping, the guestroom ready waaay before the holidays hit?

Well, fear not. We can help you get all your little household chores in a row.

We've got tons of vintage and vintage-inspired goodies on our sleigh and are unloading them for you this month during our November 17, 18, 19 & 20th opening! You'll be back in the pink in no time!

Our sacks over-floweth with goodies we've yet to unpack, yet they still sparkle and glimmer just as bright!

We're big fans of the holidays and we're here to help you do it up big!

Don't forget the serving pieces, platters and utensils you'll need to serve up some home-baked goodness too!

Hope to see you when we turn on all the twinkling lights on Thursday, November 17 at 6 PM!

Did We Mention We Got a Mention?

(All photos courtesy Kerstie Pederson)

Last month was sweet-n-spooky. Lots of black and orange, not to mention lots of customers looking for a fabulous deal on vintage inspired decor to make their homes hauntingly "boo"tiful!

One customer (and former "Roomie"!) was sweet enough to blog it! Check out Kerstie Pederson's self-titled blog and take the tour!

She also narrates points of interest (and the darling purchase she made) at our Parking Lot Sale the month before!

October Sneek Peek!

When was the last time you did something sneaky? Maybe ate that last cupcake, knowing in advance all the apology you'd need to give could be taken care of with an "Oops!" and some big puppy dog eyes?

Well, we've had some requests for a sneak peek of what's in store before we open our doors. So in the interest of keeping you satisfied yet not making you feel too guilty, we've created the following montage of photos to both make you think "Hey, what's that?" and also keep you guessing!

Our shelves are loaded with goodies for your tabletops and display cases for a POP of Autumn color:

And there's all kinds of stuff hanging: on the walls and from the ceiling!

Just add in some little bits of this and that from here and there:

And we think you've got a great potpourri for October fun! Hope to see you there October 20 - 23 rd!

The Light Of Our Life

Ever since the dawn of (wo) man, fire and light have been highly revered. And thank goodness! How else would we cook the pasta we've been craving? Or read the new home decorating magazine we've been saving for a quiet night after the sun sets?

Let there be light! And let it match my decor, while you're at it. A quick trip around the shop yielded these picks of what's in stock for the September opening (9/22-25th) of Room With A Past.

Clear glass with the trendy "no shade" shade goes with anything!

Have a cottage by the beach/lake? This lighthearted, shell-filled mason jar with blue ticking lampshade is just the added detail to add delight to your stay!

The quintessential brass, multi-armed chandelier with crystals will make any shabby-chic fan or French apartment lover swoon.

More brass and crystals! This one is more in the "Old World" styling for an elegant touch.

An electrified Victorian oil lamp sits next to an etched, stacked-ball glass lamp, waiting for a shopper to claim their style and take them home!

Novelty shapes of animals, like this rooster lamp, make a whimsical choice for the kitchen. It's always nice to have a second set of eyes to follow the recipe!

What's a Grecian urn? It'll earn you some compliments if you stage it properly (ask us--we love to help with your decorating needs!) on a great side table!

More clear, pressed glass. Great for the romantic bedroom, or the dainty powder room.

A distinguished, dark finish with highlighted details is great for a man's night table or in the library.

Capodimonte ceramic roses on a curvy base, trimmed in gold. Great for a flower filled room in a romantic home.

A hanging lamp like this space-saving, three orb light brings vintage charm home from above!

Raised cameos are featured in the ornate design on this one-of-a-kind feminine and chippy metal lamp base.

Brass with a twist--this one has been painted white to focus on the great texture of the raised details. A woven fabric shade picks up the color in the recessed areas of the base.

All these lovely lights have our future looking pretty bright for our Thursday night (Sept. 22nd) opening! Don't forget we'll have our not-to-be-missed blow out PARKING LOT SALE on Saturday & Sunday (9/24 & 25th)!
