Hello again! On yesterdays post I shared with you a bit about the place I call home, Fullerton, and what a lovely vintage place it is to be.
Today I want to show you one of the many boutiques in Fullerton that specializes in vintage jewelry, crafting, art supplies. Wow…even that description doesn’t really begin to describe the awesomeness of this shop. How about we take a commercial break so I can gather my thoughts…
More awesome than words right? In fact Nancy Jamar, the owner of this wonderful store, and I discussed how silly and utterly wonderful something as simple as an old, rusty, Victorian button can make us feel. Well it may be silly to the rest of the world (and to my hubby), but it is the thread that binds lovers of nostalgia everywhere!
So if your into that whole silly nostalgia thing, then you’ll be as giddy as a school boy when you walk into Gilding The Lily!
Nearly everything you see, from the Victorian brass buttons to the out of print paper, are antiques. And those items that are not antiques are carefully crafted reproductions, such as Gilding The Lily’s very own line on cast iron replicas and Swarovski rosary chains.
Nancy also has one of the largest collections of authentic Miriam Haskell pearls! I admit I had to be schooled on why Miriam Haskell pearls are such a big to-do. Well I read up on Miriam Haskell jewelry and all I have to say is “hotcha!”. I want some pearls too!
Gilding The Lily has many local artists that purchase their supplies from there. Even Disney costume designers come by to shop the hard-to-find treasures. Yes this shop is truly unique and charming, which is probably why is was featured in Romantic Homes Magazine (and now on Vintage Beauty! Booyah!).
Gilding The Lily also hosts several classes and workshops throughout the month, so if your like me feeling overwhelmed by the vintage inspiration, a class might be just the thing. You can find out about the next class on their class blog GildingTheLilyClasses and more about the shop at GildingTheLilyVintage.
Experience the vintage euphoria by visiting the shop at:
305 N. Harbor Blvd. suite101
Fullerton, Ca. 92832
