Flowers that won’t fade or drop their petals. Gilded bookends. (We have lots more in the store; hurry by!)
Garlands, with ribbon, burlap, gold, and so much more! Sprigs of cotton bolls can be added to garlands, wreaths, and worked into your tree, too.
Wreaths for your front door, back door, and anywhere in your home that needs a bit of holiday spirit! These are a mere hint of all the beautiful wreaths we have this year; stop by and let us show you more!
This chocolate set is Giroud, by Limoges. Very rare, and in perfect condition. $250.
If those pillows don’t quite work for your room, look at these! They’re so pretty.
Sallie posted a pin about making fairy gardens in suitcases on her personal Pinterest account two weeks ago, and the repins haven’t stopped.
The pin itself came from the Empress of Dirt, who does business on eBay. She has a great tutorial about building fairy gardens.
We have supplies, right here in Raleigh. And suitcases, by the way, as well as lots of other containers for your very own fairy garden. How about a garden in a birdcage?
Here are some more ideas for building fairy gardens, from Pinterest. We’ve added more pins about the miniature garden supplies we carry to our own In The Garden board on the Affordable Chic Pinterest account.
Come by and walk through our garden spot. What we have outside changes all the time. Much of the art and furniture is unique; don’t let it linger!
Lots of seating, furnishings, and fancy bits to train a flowering vine on:
We can’t even begin to promise that a concrete guard bunny will keep the furry, fluffy, HUNGRY real bunnies out of your lettuce. But it is a pleasant fairy tale to imagine…
And if the bunny doesn’t work, you could always try a scarecat:
Affordable Chic: protecting all forms of your lettuce, and making your home look great all the while!
And now for something completely different: reverse foil paintings. We have a matched pair, and a singleton, in the reverse-foil technique. They’re not for everyone, and certainly not for every home. But if “vintage” or “shabby chic” describes your esthetic, you really want to take a good look at these paintings.
Birds on a nest is the most colorful; frame not shown. Roughly 9 x 12; perhaps a bit smaller.
We also have a matched pair of reverse foil paintings, showing flowers in a vase.
These would look fabulous in a first floor powder room papered in warm gold or oyster! The perfect vintage statement.
Affordable Chic has new surprises every day. From classic to shabby chic and vintage, we can help you complete the look you want in your home.
Silk flowers are a perfect solution for powder rooms, guest bedrooms, upstairs hall tables, and anywhere else that needs a spot of color but NOT a spot of water.
At Affordable Chic, we have stems, sprays, and arrangements in silk and paper to fit every niche and color scheme.
On a rainy day like today, it’s nice to look at a peony that won’t shatter:
Silk roses look great on hats. Or wrists, or necklines, or, for that matter, on bookshelves.
If you see a flower you just have to have, ask us to help you pick out the perfect vase.
Incidentally, our new Easy Arrangers work as well for silk as for real flowers. Pick up a few at the birthday party on Saturday.
Affordable Chic. For the perfect silk flowers.
I thought these were roses in a jar, until Sallie told me they were hand soaps! Peel off a petal at a time. Wouldn’t they be pretty in a powder room, or a guest bath?
Keep them in a jar on a table if you just want to look at them.
We have more fine soaps for your self, too.
Affordable Chic. Even our soaps are delightful.
