Beautiful tableware and crystal to dress up your party tables.
We’re so happy to have Kate Mason and Across the Pond at Affordable Chic in time for Christmas! Some of you may have found her at the State Fairgrounds; she’s still there but we have better parking!
Make sure you check out her decor and holiday items.
Affordable Chic is a great place to shop!
We love weddings; showers, giving, celebrations. We have ideas, and crystal, and plenty of wonderful things to give to the happy couple, or for them to give to the wedding party.
These are lightweight faux crystal dangles. Hang them on your centerpieces, on candelabra, on ribbons to catch the light.
Sparkly lotus blossom candle holders, to catch the sun and the candlelight, both.
Affordable Chic: Your first choice for shopping when someone you love is heading down the aisle.
We just love colored glass and colored crystal. We’ve done a few posts about blue glass; here’s some of the red glass we have at Affordable Chic, just in time for summer picnics.
(Put them all together for the 4th of July! You’ll have the classiest picnic table in the neighborhood.)
Stop by Affordable Chic this weekend–for Father’s Day shopping, weddings, and everything you need for your U. S. Open Party!
There are a lot of ways to take that title!
Dress up your dinner table with fancy salt cellars and salt-and-pepper shakers.
Set of six wine glasses in the lovely First Love pattern, from Duncan Miller.
Lots of silver and parfait and other nice-to-haves for fancy dining, on special events or everyday.
Affordable Chic, your one stop for better living!
As exciting as a lightbulb? Until you can’t find the one you need, the one that matches the others or the one that makes your chandelier look like it did in the showroom.
We have a wide range of chandelier-base lightbulbs for all your specialty lighting situations.
The Dowager Duchess at Downtown Abbey can run gas to her chandeliers, and we’ll agree, there’s nothing like a real flame. But she didn’t pay the insurance bills for that lighting, either!
Details matter. We have decorative pulls and finials, too. Dress your lamps as carefully as you would dress yourself.
More finials, and some pulls to mix and match. You see that fan pull every morning when you wake up. Why not make it beautiful?
And while we’re making slightly silly jokes about lighting, “anybody got a light?” There was so much Art in lighters!
If you know someone having a mortgage burning party, and you’re looking for the perfect mortgage burning party gift, take this crystal cigarette lighter, from Ronco. You don’t want to burn a mortgage with a flickable bic.
Affordable Chic. The perfect gift for every occasion.
At Affordable Chic, we do a good bit more for Christmas than for New Years, but there’s a lot in the store that would look good on a buffet, either New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. How about an iridescent red punch bowl, and 12 matching cups?
Individual salt cellars? Crystal knife rests?
We’ve been busy this season, and we can’t promise everything in this post will still be available in the shop when you come in. But if we’re out, you know we’ll be able to find something just as good!
Open Sunday December 29 from 1-6, Monday 10-6, and Tuesday, New Year’s Eve Day, from 10-4. Closed New Years Day, and then we return to our normal hours. Stop by and say hello!
We’re having a White Christmas early this year! Rain or fog, 30 degrees or 70, stop by Affordable Chic to get your fill of silver and white holiday trees, ornaments, and overall beautiful goodness. Wouldn’t these vintage silver Christmas trees look fabulous in your foyer?
If you have less-than-fond memories of tinsel trees and colored lights, don’t let that keep you away. We have all sorts of other finery for your home this time of year.
Make sure you have the December Open House on your calendar! We had so much fun last time, we’re going to do it again. Friday, Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend, Dec 6-8. Judy the Gold Gal will be here on Sunday from 2-6 to buy your sterling, gold and platinum.
We have a lovely little collection of perfume bottles, candy jars, vases, and other paraphernalia for your dresser top or powder room, in blue crystal, and transferware.
If you’re looking closely at the picture showing the tall blue vase, you can see a shot of green in the lower left corner. That’s the very edge of a set of green crystal wine glasses.
We’d love to set a table with these… think Christmas dinner, perhaps?
Stop by Affordable Chic soon if you’d like these. We don’t think they’ll last long, once our cooks start thinking about this year’s holiday plans!
We have a new display cabinet full of beautiful crystal. Vases, bowls, decanters, serving ware. You have to see it to really get the beauty fo the reflections and refractions and rainbows. The pictures can only hint…
The cabinet is available for sale, too, by the way. Glass front, mirror back, lighted. Glass shelves.
