Pumpkin Pie Days Antique Show……..

by Eclectic By Design on October 10, 2014

Woo Hoo……. or should that be “BOO” Hoo? After weeks of pricing and polishing, we’re ready for the St. Vrain Historical Society’s Pumpkin Pie Days antique show at the Boulder Valley Fairgrounds this Saturday & Sunday, October 11-12 located in Longmont at the corners of Hover & Nelson Roads. Doors are open 10:00 to 5:00 on Saturday, and 11:00 to 4:00 on Sunday.It’s a really nice show, and we’ve brought out some of our very best pieces (heavy on the primitives this time).  You’ll just have to come out and see all the great fall home décor, primitive cabinets and cupboards, and even some Christmas items mixed in! We’ll post some more pictures from the show if we get the chance.

The BIG news of the day is that Eclectic by Design has opened an online store on the Rubylane marketplace. Hit the link to the right to take you directly to the store!!!! We only have a few items listed currently, but check back often as we plan to add LOTS of great items as we go forward. After lots of research, we felt that Rubylane was the best fit for reaching a broader market for our fantastic, unique, and high end items.

Also be sure to check out our new link to our Facebook page and “LIKE” us. We’ll keep you updated on all of the happenings and events ahead.

And finally, do let us know if there is something special you are looking for to spruce up your home…. Chances are we have one (or two), or we can certainly be on the lookout for you. Until next post, we hope to see you at the Pumpkin Pie Days Show!

Labor Day 2014

by Eclectic By Design on August 31, 2014

Wow!  Labor Day Weekend already.  How quickly the summer days pass.  The calendar says it is still summer but the cool evening air makes you want a cozy blanket on the bed!  A little  reminder that fall is just around the corner.  As we anticipate fall and the colors of autumn it makes us want to bring some of that same color palate indoors.  At all of our Eclectic By Design locations look for our touches of FALL.Mercantile Fruit Display

Discover with us a treasure trove of items to inspire your personal style.  We have antique finds from yesterday’s past, one of a kind furniture selections and some of the latest products from the market.

This fall we are really busy with lots of changes.  Enjoy our new Photo Gallery on the website.  It is a great sampling of what we do!

October 10-12, 2014 we will be at the Longmont Historical Society’s “Pumpkin Pie Days Antique Show” – held at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont.  This is a great event that will have some fun and unique ideas for your Christmas gift list.  Look for our booth at the back of the main aisle as you come into the building.  We hope to see you there.

By the 1st of November, we will be expanding into a new location at the Hampden St. Antique Market.  This is one of the oldest Antique Malls in the Denver Metro Area and it is located at 8964 E. Hampden Ave.   Denver, CO  80231   We are really looking forward to this expansion.  We hear great things about the customers there!  Expect an explosion of holiday items as we are moving in right in the middle of the holiday season.

Mark your calendars for a New Event in January 2015!  Vintage Whites Market is coming to Colorado.  This is a wonderful vintage market held several times a year in Montana and Utah and the two girls who started it now want to add Colorado to their location list!  SO… on January 9th and 10th come and see the Vintage Whites Market.  It will be held in Loveland Indoors! at The Ranch Events Complex right off of 1-25.  We will be showcasing our French, Shabby Chic, and Country Primitives collection.  We are very excited to be a part of this new show here in Colorado!  Stay tuned for more info or go to Vintage Whites Market on Facebook and learn more!

Also, looking out to the summer of 2015 – We will be participating in the Old Glory Antique Fair.  Held every year in June at Clement Park in Littleton, CO the Old Glory Antique Fair has become a Denver tradition.  We have enjoyed attending this summer event and now can’t wait to join in the fun as a vendor, this coming June 19 & 20, 2015.
