Show Up And Show Off!

Have you ever brought your purchase to the front desk and had one of us ROOMIES ask you how in the heck you're going to use it?? We can't help ourselves--we too, love to re purpose the odd, the beautiful and the one-of-a-kind items we come across while we're out seeking the treasures we love to sell at Room With A Past!

So we REALLY love it when you send us a photo or show up on our doorstep with your project! Here's customer Kathleen Waeny a few months ago, showing up and showing off a few of the vintage embroidered linens she's made into precious pillows!

What have you got to show us???

Almost Ready To Shine!

You've caught us with our bloomers down again! We're not quite dressed up in the magical finery that we like to present to you, but we thought you'd like to see what we look like before the curtain opens this Thursday at 5 PM!

There's no laying down on the job when you have a lot of work to do. This bed spring in a delicious green will become a wondrous display when it's up on the wall:

Need a ladder? We've got all kinds of them to sort through and price!

All this regal chandelier lacks is a hook on the ceiling before it makes its shining debut.

We can't wait to see what one-of-a-kind baubles jewelry artist Ann Tatum has to share this month!

There are lots of things on the floor yet to be hung on the walls!

More empty walls await some artful arraigning of frames, while tabletop displays are still packed away.

Linens and laces are waiting to be fluffed, folded and stacked onto their shelves:

Suck in your stomach and follow me down the hallway!

There are still boxes of summer treasures waiting to be unpacked:

This looks a like a trail of pirate booty!

We can't wait to welcome you!

Don't miss how we pull it all together for our July opening: July 26 - 29th!

Proud to Be Best Of The East Bay

Who would ever think that behind this humble door in Walnut Creek, CA lies a paradise of sorts?

We see it all the time when a "newbie" first visits at our shop; they step just inside the door, stop abruptly, gaze upward at the chandeliers, then all around at the vast array of vignettes. Next we'll see anything from an almost imperceptibly small grin to an all out face-encompassing smile!

And now, once more, we are humbled again. Our beloved customers have voted us:

We couldn't be more proud to be in this issue!

Thanks to all of you who have discovered your paradise in us!

Don't forget our sister store, Paris Flea Market in Livermore, CA will be open this Thursday evening (July 12 - July 15th)!
