The Little Big Shop: Autumn Collection

13 Oct

Even though the weather only occasionally agrees with me, fall is indeed here and I am excited to announce the first collection from the Little Big shop on Etsy: The Autumn Collection. I’ve been selling vintage items online through my show for awhile but what I have been looking forward to is featuring collections based on a specific theme. Fall is one of my favorite times of year and this collection features my love autumnal brass, rich leather, and owls.

Three brass leaves have an earthy patina and come ready to hang on the wall.

This brass lotus plate would make a stunning centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table. It has a natural patina from age but could be easily polished to a golden shine.

This adjustable brass necklace is the perfect accessory for going out or just going to the store, and would make a great addition to a Cleopatra or Egyptian-themed Halloween costume. A little polish and it would also shine brightly.

I love this avocado green set of Japanese ceramic mugs. They are perfect for cider or hot chocolate.

The design is really lovely and they are in great shape.

Perfect for a fall picnic.This supple steer-hide camera case is also a perfect purse. I use a vintage camera case for my purse except it has a zipper. I took this case for a test drive and the snap closure on this case was much more convenient than the zip-top of my case. The leather is thick and lovely.

This adorable owl statue is actually an unopened Avon perfume bottle. I have the box it came in and it’s lovely, too.

It would look great on a desk or bookshelf.

This brass leaf plate is thick and solid and heavy. It would be great as a dish to serve nuts or candy or to hold your necklaces and bracelet.

I love the way it looks with the lotus plate.

The details on it are lovely.

This jewelry box was made in Japan but it looks like it comes straight from a fairytale.

Instead of a lid that lifts up it has two drawers that slide out. It would make a charming gift for someone expecting a girl.

These plaid glasses are already up in the shop, but I had to include them in the fall set.

I haven’t seen suncatchers like this in awhile.

Two perfect owl trivets or wall decor.

Owl napkin holder could also hold letters, cards, or papers on a desk.

This handpainted owl plaque is so cute.

My friend Stefanie gave me this vintage suede and faux-fur rust colored coat for the shop. It’s completely gorgeous and perfect for fall.

It’s a little large for me so I’ll need to get sizing information. But it’s really stunning.

It’s lined with a silky burnt-orange material.

Finally I found this vintage owl wall hanging and candle sconce. I believe they were originally gold or another color and their previous owner painted them a shiny, lacquered black. Perfect for Halloween.

The candle sconce is a nice large size and would look good as a seasonal decoration or out all year round.

I have a whole closet of thrifted items awaiting their turn in the shop. Stop by the shop to check it out. Thanks for looking!

    Bravo! You picked the perfect time of day for light and the perfect setting for your photoshoot as well. I am suitably inspired. Incidentally, it looks like you raided my Grandmother’s and Auntie’s stash of owls. I remember my whole family going through an owl phase in the 1970s. I wonder where all that stuff is? Your pics make me want to take a trip to Michigan to raid the family treasure!

    Very nice collection of items! I love in particular the camera bag and the owl napkin holder. So cool! The jacket is a dream also. Best of luck on your sales!

    Suggestion: you could add a link to your shop in the last paragraph so people wont have to scroll up to see it. πŸ˜‰

    I freaking love owls. And you’re making me want to go spend all of my money in your shop. Which is of course good for you, but not so good for me. Stop it! πŸ™‚
