A Peek at the New Shop Space

I've been a little missing in action from the blog lately while developing my new shop space. But I'm giving you a little sneak peek into where all the Cabin & Cottage action is lately. 

Here we are standing just outside the door where the shop sign hangs at Vintage Market & Design in Albuquerque. . . .
 Come on inside!

We are all working overtime to meet our February 1st opening just a few days away. Only the bare bones are in place, but you may get a sense of the cottage vibe that I love so much.

I'm loving the clean spare lines of the space before it gets all filled up. Still so much to do!

Cubbies to fill. Linens to hang. . . .

It's also an opportunity for me to get the hang of taking photos in a room illuminated mainly by cold fluorescent light. The upside is that I never have to wait for the right time of day to do it!

I'm excited to be showcasing some of my favorite things like this luscious vintage table lamp. A wonderful hand painted example of decoration the way it used to be!

I love all of the wonderful details. . . .

I have a thing for decorative French mirrors and old laces.

Lots more room for pretty china.

Alas, never enough French furniture.

It's so nice that you came by for a look! I'll be sharing more of the new collective space and the other wonderful shops here too. It'll be a big hump day for me this week. I hope you're having a great week too!

  1. If I lived near you, had the house space and the money that white cabinet would be coming home with me! I love it!

  2. Hi J,
    This looks like so much fun! The space looks BIG!! I am dying over that white cupboard, you'll have all of blogland coming to N.M. to shop! It's nice to see your so so pretty tags too:-) Your lighting looks fantastic, not cold at all, I have tried florescent and ended up blue... Oh and Oooh la la on the amazing guilt settee, sigh...

  3. I don't know how you could part with that rose lamp or almost everything in your space! I love it all. The french settee sofa, Oh my, I want that. I am sure you will have so much fun though. Good luck. Your sign for your shop space is so so lovely. xxo

  25. Beautiful mirrors and I just love that table lamp, what a beauty!

  26. Hi Jacqueline: I read your blog all the time, but don't often comment. But today I just had to let you know how pretty your photos always are, and what a lovely shop space you are creating. I had a great idea while looking at your pictures for a salvaged piece that I've had in our garage forever and wasn't sure what to do with it, so thank you for the inspiration today.

  27. I love your tags! Looks like you are moving to a different place? Wishing you great success!

  28. Your space is just so beautiful and inspires me as our white show approaches!

  29. Lovely space, lovely sign and price tags too! Best wishes!

  30. Jacqueline, Everything is beautiful!! Where did you have all those beautiful things stored away? It's good to have them out where they can be seen, enjoyed, and bought!! And you certainly have a gift for display!! Wish I could be there! I know it's fun but also a lot of work! It's all so lovely!

  31. Beautifully displayed. You have some wonderful items. Would love to shop.

  33. Hello Jacqueline. Oh your shop is going to be gorgeous. What beautiful pieces. I wish I could visit your pretty shop. I would spend hours looking at everything. I do love that lamp. Any online shopping for the shop?? Congrats and best wishes.


  34. Dear Jacqueline,
    I wish you all the best for your new opening on the 1st.
    Cabin and Cottage, looks simply adorable.
    Your hand painted lamp will be a snatch.
    I would be going for some of your lovely linens and cottons.
    best wishes

  35. Oh how I'd love to be able to come and shop in your space, Jacqueline! You'd have to replenish after every visit of mine. :-))
    Your tags are gorgeous!
    Mary Alice

  36. Just so charming....adore the table color and the pretty skirt. You sure have "an eye" !

  37. OH your shop looks fabulous!
    Wish I lived near!
    We have a booth at the Village Antique Mall here is Beautiful B.C. , and I tell you its a lot of work (fun) keeping it full and beautiful!
    Your space is going to be a very popular one! Wish I could bring a truck down and buy that beautiful cabinet/armoire!

  38. Oh, your space looks just gorgeous! I wish you much success :)

  39. Good luck with the opening.
    How very exciting!

  40. Jacqueline, have you had your opening yet? Hope it goes (went) well. It's so much fun fixing displays but lots of hard work when you have to replace something. I wish you great luck and wish I could visit for some shopping. I would find it so hard to let all of your beautiful things go. You have some really wonderful mirrors and frames..Happy Weekend..Judy
