PBR

If you came to this blog thinking I was talking about this PBR . . .
well, I'm sorry but you've come to the wrong place. Because today, I'm talking about this PBR:
Palm Beach Regency. Ever heard of it? Am I the last one to know? Sometimes, it feels that way. Well, if you're as unenlightened as I was, you're in for a treat. And if you have heard of it, well, just bear with my poor, little last-to-the-party self. I stumbled across this amazing online shop while reading one of my favorite blogs, Birds of a Feather (hi Ann and Hooper!) a couple of weeks ago. It is chocked full of all the bamboo and Hollywood Regency goodness we've come to expect from the Palm Beach area. 
I mean, I've known about Circa Who for quite some time and even bought a chandelier from them about 6 years ago, but was so happy to find another resource for what I consider to be some very cool stuff. Here is just a smattering of the eye candy . . .

Remember the rope chair I missed out on at the flea market? Well, these are actually sold too. One day, I will find some! Aren't they fabulous? And since we're on the subject of ropes/tassels, here are some other finds that caught my eye . . .


And remember how I was dreaming of a ceramic dog?

Well, it looks like I'll have to keep dreaming because this one is $750! A little out of my price range. Doesn't he remind you of this little guy?

And, a little vintage needlepoint in the Chinoiserie style, of course . . . 

I think you get the point. There's more bamboo, lucite, Hollywood Regency and Chinoiserie goodies than you can shake a stick at (I really have no idea what that saying means, but growing up in the South people used it when referring to a boatload of something. That's all I know). Of course, shipping is always an issue when shopping online, but sometimes it's fun just to look and get inspired. My vintage shopping has been really hurting lately . . . not finding much of anything locally. So, any port in the storm. 

Any online shopping haunts that make you happy? Please do share.

Greatest blog post intro in quite some time.

I saw all your pins, and thought you were lucky enough to be IN the store! For a second, I actually thought it was Circa Who's shop - very, very similar offerings.
All those pagoda'd cabinets make me wanna cry with want.
*sigh*

I have never heard of this place and I am stunned at the inventory! Makes me hope the flea is good this weekend. Great post.

Oh good Lord I would need to bring a defib or whatever it's called to a trip there. I wonder if it's a bricks and mortar store? I think one of these days we should organize a bloggers thrifting trip to the Palm Beach area. I should start saving now.

I want to go here! It looks so awesome. My kind of place. I love those blue and white chairs, and that gold tassel bench.
Have a great day.

That is too funny...I love that shop. The lady who runs it, Patricia, is great! Just ordered some killer lamps from them and waiting for them to arrive!
