I know, you are going to say this is not your typical suburban window display - no it is New York! Kitty's son David (who is a professional staging designer) comes in from New York several times per year to do the window displays and stage the rest of the store.
Please join me on this trip through Catherine's (Kitty's) establishment because it is quite a journey of the old and new all blended into a delightful experience.
The building is storefront on the ground floor with two wonderful vintage apartments on the second floor, all decorated in a timeless fashion to display the wonderful antique offerings.
A daily treat or Advent Tree for the month of December
This is the candy cane Christmas table with candy canes put over the side of vintage bowls and peppermints in the center with red candles.
You can see how striking this is with a down shot of the table.
This is the Depression Glass Room (tucked out of the way in a long open closet) with all of those wonderful colors of the era.

A beautiful dining table set with Gorham China

A Vintage Kitchen
The kitchen Christmas tree
The two bedrooms in the larger apartment are filled with treasures of the past.
There are many dresser sets in porcelain, celluloid and Bakelite.
This was my favorite room because it is so unusual. Catherine's son David stripped off random pieces of the wallpaper that had been applied through the years. It was like a decor timeline!
The kitchen in the smaller apartment with vintage aprons and tablecloths
Kitty took over another space next door with larger furniture, dining room sets, buffets, etc. Let's take a look:
My daughter-in-law and I really liked these green leaf trees.

What a great tree with the peacock
Such a creative display on an old hall tree!

There is so much to see in this shop that it is something to experience over and over.
David and his mother have made this into an exciting and unusual shop in the heart of suburbia. Daughter Cathy does the website, truly a family affair.
