Aren't these Montgomery Ward Color Connection teal teacups and saucers lovely?

I just recently listed 8 of these in our online shop and thought I would share them with you here.  The style is very reminiscent of Fiesta Ware but Color Connection was a house line of Montgomery Wards.  The teal is just so pretty.  If I had room for them at home, I'd be oh so tempted to keep them, especially with fall coming up.  These would be just perfect for some homemade cocoa.  Which I am looking forward to making with Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder...Mmmmmm.   They'd also be wonderful for a cup of soup!

Clip-ons Revamped!

Do you love vintage clip-on earrings but just can't stand the pinch? Me too. Ouch!  But I've been brainstorming how I can use them and still let them add a little something to my style without the added pain. My solution? Move 'em from your lobes to your toes! They make fabulous shoe clips. They're especially great for clipping on your flip flops. Don't believe me? Here are some examples done with one pair of flip-flops!

P.S. If any of these earrings have caught your eye; they are, as of this posting, available in our shop!

Cowgirl Fridays--Commencing Now!

What with our shop being in the Stetson House and everything we really couldn't resist letting our inner cowgirl out from time to time and with 2010 being the building's bicentennial we thought it was the perfect excuse! The first Friday of each month is now Cowgirl Friday, starting today.  We've even made a sign, so it's official.

On Cowgirl Fridays you'll get 25% off our western and cabin themed items if you wear your cowgirl hat or boots.  Or do a line dance.  Otherwise you have to draw for your be sure to work on your aim!

In case all this doesn't entice you, we also have these yummy and oh too cute cupcakes from Cake Diva.  Come and get them while you can!

We have this gorgeous vintage necklace and earring set.  The necklace is strung with hefty beads that are quite cool to the touch.  I am not sure if they are glass or if they are possibly quartz or another stone.  There are striations in the colors and these feel tumbled...they're not perfectly round or perfectly smooth.  Do you know what it's made of?  It is accented with tiny little gold-tone beads.


Rincewind's Amazing Traveling Curio

I am a huge Terry Pratchett fan.  I thought I would post a pic of this great curio cabinet in our shop for all the rest of you discworld fans out there.  Enjoy!

*note the legs--they've got feet!*

Happy Birthday Louisa!

We're so blessed that our shop is housed in the historic Stetson House in Waynesville.  It just gives you a special feeling to come to work each day in such a charming little building that has so much history to it.   You really feel a connection to those who have been here before you.  The most famous resident, for whom the building is named, was Louisa Stetson Larrick.  She was the sister of John B. Stetson, of hat fame. (If you would like to learn a bit more about this history of the Stetson House visit here.) Today would have been her 191st birthday and so we are having a little celebration at Trendy Bindi's in her honor.

We have these lovely cupcakes from Cake Diva which is just up the street from us. Aren't they sweet?

We are taking 20% off all clothing and women's accessories and we will be giving away these lovely Cape Cod Cupboard notecard sets

and this charming Welcome sign by Pink Buttercreme to different lucky customers throughout the day!

Vintage Valentine's Day

We've been very busy rearranging and adding inventory at the shop (and we still have a bunch to put in!) 
I thought that I 'd show you some of what we've been busy doing for Valentine's Day.

Here are a bunch of our vintage valentines and a selection of our vintage cherubs and puttis. 

Here we've taken one of our vintage wrought iron plant stands and repurposed it to hold our sexy red shoes and some of our purses and handbags, which are just perfect for your red hot Valentine's date.  If only they fit my foot. *sigh*

Here another vintage plant stand has been called into action to hold this two-tiered planter which is now on jewelry holding duty.  This actually turned out better than we thought it would.  We were just playing around with ideas and the jewelry but it really works out great to keep all the necklaces (plus a bracelet or two) highly visible and organized.  Wish I had one of these for my bedroom!

<3 I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day! <3

Limerick #3

When you crave vintage glamour,
For Trendy Bindi's you'll clamor.
In the blink of an eye,
You'll spy plenty to buy
With which you'll be quite enamoured.

Bindi Takes a Lick at a Limerick

Apparently not only is our shop's namesake, Bindi, adorable, sweet, and an arbiter of fabulous taste (demonstrated by her attachment to us of course!) she is also quite the little poet.

All this time, when we've thought she was just enjoying a good coze on the sofa, she's been composing jaunty little limericks. We thought we'd share a few of her pithy compositions about our shop with you. Below is the first of what we hope will be many that we have convinced her to share. (We find that a little bit of beef does wonders to overcome her bashfulness!)

So sit back, feel free to don your berets, grab your mug of coffee and enjoy!

Limerick #1
There once was a dog named Bindi.
Her friends all thought her quite trendy.
So she opened a store,
Where she could sell more
Of all that was chic and stup-indi!

Happy New Year!

*for great vintage graphics be sure to check out Graphics Fairy*

As the song's time to ring out the old and ring in the new.

2009 has been a difficult year for many. It was no different for us. Being a rather new business we would not be here if it weren't for the support and loyalty of our customers. Also, as some of you know, our brother (Kerry)& son (Stephanie) was diagnosed with cancer and has spent the last several months in treatment. Hopefully, he will be through and cancer free in a couple of months. To all of our customers, fellow business owners and friends who have offered prayers, comfort, support,and understanding we simply cannot thank you enough. God Bless you all!

2010 we hope will prove to be a much better year for everyone. We're terribly excited because it is the Bicentenial of our shop's home, the historic Stetson House. We plan to have many festivities throughout the year in celebration. We also plan on having Cowgirl Fridays and Tiki Thursdays this year (more details coming soon we promise!)

We hope that all of you have a fabulous New Year!
Kerry & Stephanie
