As you know we create a lot of iron art so of course we include that in our space, but I love vintage and salvaged items and have been in the business of selling them for 26 years so that is also a big part of the inventory we place in our little cottage. I love mixing hard and soft and mostly have a monochromatic look of whites, grays and rust.
|Our small orbs cover the ceiling, I like using every bit of space to display. There is nothing sparse or simplified about our look.|
It is fun being in the little cottage especially when people discover who we are, it makes it easy for them to remember us, we are grateful to have so many loyal customers and fans of our space. Being in Summer Cottage Antiques has been a very positive experience for us. We live about two hours away from the store so keeping the space tidy can be a challenge, we stock it full with new things about every two weeks and that seems to keep our customers very happy.
We always look forward to our trips over to stock our little cottage, we enjoy shopping around the store and Petaluma is a wonderful community. We especially appreciate how dog friendly the community is and Summer Cottage is very dog friendly as well. We travel with our little mascot dog Scout and he loves to come help in the little cottage too!
