It's All Here - in Black & White!

Fresh and new for a new year, the look of black & white is the trend to incorporate into your home this season! The great thing about this color combination is that it is truly neutral, and will coordinate with any and all accent colors throughout the coming year. A great investment!

From small accessories like hip rhinestone-studded candles by Pure Sanctuary to accents such as alabaster lamps and upholstered chairs, we've brought in a stylish selection to spiff up the store and inspire you to add it to your environment.

Maybe a new painted table, dresser, or buffet is exactly what your home or office need to start the year off with a fresh attitude! You'll find amazing antiques & vintage finds in our one-of-a-kind boutique in Snohomish. Visit us and be inspired!

With Love...Elegantly

It will soon be Valentine's Day, time to express your love for the special people in your life.

At Faded Elegance, we have dozens of wonderful gifts and cards for you to choose from. Our cards have beautiful illustrations and simple messages - nothing specifically Valentine, just about love! What a nice way to share a sweet sentiment with a friend.

These sassy resin bracelets are a fashionable way to wear your heart on your, wrist!!!

Girls love to get a little bling on special days, and you are sure to find something that's just her style (or maybe your style!) among our collection of rhinestone, silver, enamelled, and soldered jewelry.

A few posts back, we featured the beautiful product line from Kimberly Austin of Austin Press. We have new additions to her line in the store, plus some elegant silver letter openers that compliment them.

Well, the word is out - in the January/February 2009 issue of Victoria magazine, there is a feature story on Austin Press! Look to pages 86 through 91 for photos of Kimberly's wonderful illustrations, and more on her amazing history. (You can purchase new issues of Victoria at Faded Elegance, too!)

Along with these new products in the boutique area, our 12 antique dealers are bringing in a fanciful selection of vintage Valentine's treasures that will make you swoon... and they are calorie free!

Now that the snow has melted and the roads are clear, we look forward to seeing you soon. Drop by and say hello...and don't forget, you can use our Wish List Gift Registry any time of year. Come in and sign up!
