The End of A Bella Age

That's right. The end of an age!  I closed the "doors" of my Bella Rosa Antiques shop.

I miss it already but I'm also so busy with my Vintage & Co. brick and mortar shop that I don't really have any time to think about it.
(one of my early photos...I learned a lot along the way!)
It was ten years ago that I started the online shop. Ten years! A decade. It all started whenI had won the website in a blog contest. And of course as soon as I started the process, I found out I was pregnant! It was a huge blessing to be able to stay home and take care of my daughter after she was born that same year. The website was my new part-time job.

So many pretty things came and went. Here are just some of my favorites:


This week I'll be going through all of the items that I had in my inventory to bring into the shop.

I still have jewelry, some antique books, and china. China is the hardest thing to sell these days. Probably better to store it all away for when the trend comes back again. They always do.

And speaking of storing things away, yesterday I took advantage of Martin Luther King Jr. day to take down Christmas and pack away everything in the attic. 

Onward and upward!

I'll be back to give you an update on our latest projects for Vintage & Co.!
