What a wonderful year!

The Brushed Bureau wishes you a very Merry Christmas and Happy 2011. I have met some of the sweetest customers this year. Thanks to all of you that made 2010 a very special year. The best part of owning a retail business is meeting people and making new friends. May 2011 be a wonderful year for you all!

Keaton style

Every now and then, I will do a post of a house that makes an impression on me. This one happens to belong to Diane Keaton (actress, Father of the Bride). I found this Spanish Revival mansion featured in an old issue of Architectural Digest and thought it was a gem!

Come all ye Collectors!

For all you Christopher Radko collectors, Blacklion will host a Radko signing this Friday, December 10. Mario Tare', Christopher Radko's founding designer, will be present in the store from 1-4 pm, signing ornaments and answering questions about the famous Radko line. Mario developed the popular vintage themed Shiny-Brite™ collection along with various other pieces of the Radko Collection. This will be the only Radko appearance in Charlotte and one of the few in the Carolinas. So, bundle up and come on out to experience a rare "meet and greet" with one of the original Radko artists!

Decking the halls

I have been decking the halls in the store since October and I am actually starting to receive Valentines decor...can you believe how fast this holiday season is flying by? The store has been packed with customers getting into the spirit of the season! So, for the next couple of weeks, I will slowly start to mark things down to make room for new merchandise. Blacklion's bi-annual Red Tag Sale will begin after Christmas and some merchants will mark items down the week before. So, if you are looking for fabulous holiday decor, shop the aisles in Blacklion and deck your halls. Below are a couple of items that I currently have in stock:

Wendy Addison Santo Angels (large and small sizes)

An assortment of Angels

vintage-inspired art work

handmade holiday floral in metal wall planter

Wendy Addison glass glitter bird in nest ornament
