*I love this chair we found recently, it needs some TLC which we plan on giving...but wow it really unique!


Here is a section of our shop showing a great selection of what we have! Come in and take a look we are always getting new items... sometimes daily.

 Vintage Desk with little chair - $45

 Dark Red shelf - $35
Large Sales - $45 ea
Small Scale -$25
 Custard Yellow and wood vintage desk - $45

This is really an item I bought for the frame, but ended up loving the painting inside as well.  I don't know too much about the artist but it is signed in the corner.
Framed Art $115
This is a unique item, it is the top to a china hutch.  We only found the top part, but I do think it would make a lovely shelf in the kitchen, it could be modified to work just like this! 

I love Des Moines!  I am such a big fan of our city, and try to explore all that it has to offer.  Yesterday I did a photo shoot at the Des Moines Art Center, perfect weather!  If you are looking to take some fun family photos this is a great place.  It has a lot to offer...  Happy Weekend!

Breakfast at Tiffany's....Vanity Fair....

Unfortunately I couldn't be at Herb's today because I was feeling under the weather.  I did watch two movies that are packed full of beautiful interiors.  I have seen both movies many times, but I noticed some really great ideas this time especially in Breakfast at Tiffany's!

First off the tub couch? how cool is that.  I am going to try and find some more shots from the movie but thought I would share these!

Crates for a coffee table! In the bottom right photos you can see a lovely stack of suitcases stacked up for storage.

I will update blog with pricing tomorrow, but these are all items that just arrived at our store!  If you are interested in any of these please contact Frank @ 202*8336
Have a great week!

Here is what some of our customers did with the fabulous frames!  Great idea Missy!

 We love all the ideas you have and  will post them on the blog! Email them to

Re vamped baby crib!  It makes a really lovely chalk board don't you think?  It is actually a really creamy key lime color for some reason this photo doesn't really show that.

Vintage October...

 Happy Fall Everyone! 
These are some photos I snapped at the Center Grove Apple Orchard~
I hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful season to the fullest!

Vintage - All items are available to purchase, please call for pricing

 This is a lovely little dresser, it is low to the ground and could be used in a kid's room.  I was thinking it would be the perfect spot to stash away dress up clothes, crafts or board games!  Could be a pretty great coffee table too.

Feature wall, empty frames grouped together create the perfect spot for kids art, snapshots, and anything else you can think of to put in them!

Shiny Red Bookshelf

Vintage kids seat
Fabulous Oval Mirror 

Avocado Gree Side Table

Vintage Suitcases

Lovely Curved Foot Board - This is an interesting item we found recently.  It is the only part of the bed they had, but it was in great condition and the details are gorgeous!  Just to show it could be used in an interesting way I leaned some photos up against the back and candle sticks.  But it could be styled to fit the decor of your home.  If someone is REALLY handy it could be the beginning of a great bench ;)

Empty Frames - The cool thing about putting an empty frame on your wall is you can not only add photos, but three dimensional as well.  

Happy Decorating~
