What's up and New at the Red Shed

Here are just a few new (old) items at the Red Shed. Darling vintage expandable dress form $99 ....
Great rolling wire laundry basket $72 ..............
Fabulous Frame! Sorry, SOLD.
Oh My Goodness, this mirror is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Really, the most striking I have seen in a long time! $115 .SOLD!....
Look at the detail!
Wonderful large mantle would look a whole lot better on your wall or above your fireplace, than it does on our floor! $110 ........
Not old, but adorable for your Paris Chic room. These are actually match stick blinds, but they certainly don't need a window to make a statement! $45
I just finished making a new batch of our signature initial necklaces. If you haven't seen the new ones, the "B" on the right is made from a 1800s French Saint Book Plate. We have many letters in this style, and you will ONLY find them at the Red Shed, and only $9.99! (includes chain) (White background a&B SOLD, but I will be making more)

Flea Market Style Magazine ** Ki Nassauer teams up with Matthew Mead

Wow! What amazing news we heard today. Our fun friend, Ki Nassauer, (Founder of Junk Market, Junk Camp, Junk Revolution, and Junk Bonanza) told us she had a big announcement coming this week, but again....Wow! Ki is teaming up with designer Matthew Mead to produce their own Magazine, Flea Market Style. According to their web sites "FLEA MARKET STYLE magazine will be filled with fresh ideas, projects, makeovers, before and after transformations as well as a round up of amazing decorating tips, flea marketing trips, insider styling tricks and everything else you could ever dream of in a home decorating magazine" Yea!!! Ever since Country Home kicked the bucket (and they sent me Family Circle instead, which really doesn't cut it) There has really been an "in print" vacuum out there for those of us 'Junkanistas'. Ki's and Matthews contributions had been the best thing about Country Home anyway! The magazine won't be out until 2010, but they will be starting a blog about it in August. For more information visit Ki and Matthew's blogs.
Ki is truly probably one of the most genuine, hardworking, CREATIVE, and humble people you will ever meet, and we wish her MUCH success!

Here is a photo of Ki with Red Shed Girl, Michele Jones at our Junk Bonanza trip slumber party last year.
