Last weekend I went to visit Pickity Place again in New Hampshire, and I was so excited to make time to stop at the White Home Collections in Wilson New Hampshire, which is just down the street.
Last summer I visited this great shop, but didn't leave myself enough time to explore everything, as there are three levels inside the store, an outside barn and a front yard, full of vendors items!
White Home Collections "showcases all things fabulous; antique, vintage, and new." Describes their website, and the newer items have a vintage, shabby chic, garden feel that I truly love. Everything from candles, pillows, home decor, art, and clothes, and garden things.
When I visited before, I met Dexter the shop cat, a male, tuxedo cat with a sweet disposition. This time around I made sure to look for him, and I know I wasn't the only one, as I heard some other people mentioning they wanted to find him to say hello as well. After a little while, shopping the main level and the second floor I still couldn't spot him snuggled anywhere in a warm nookie spot, so I asked the cashier and they said that Dexter was no longer living at the shop. They said he was lonely in the store by himself and they found him a forever home. I was a bit disappointed, but I am so happy for him!
Well, if I couldn't find Dexter, I was going to shop for my next favorite things, cat art, and collectibles. Things that any cat lover would find attractive and definitely add to their feline collection.
First, I have to mention that my husband Dustin found me an amazing Type 2 hat, (Check out Carol Tuttle Dressing Your Truth to Find Your Type) and it was soft, warm, and just the right color, so we grabbed that. Do you think its 20's style or 40"s?
I also found a felted cat Christmas tree ornament, to add to my cat and dog Christmas tree that I do every year. Aren't these the cutest!
Then I found a variety of antique cat items, like decorations and trinkets, scattered in different spots.
Whats funny is, I have something that looks just like these in storage.
I also found pictures and a cute cup with a cat drinking what looks like milk, very humorous.
Since it is so close to Christmas, we saw lots of decorations and great gift ideas through out all the vendors booths. Here we have a framed art and a very original piece with a cat and the letters CAT. I like the warm fireplace behind the kitty.
Of Course Christmas wouldn't be complete without a Christmas Stocking for Kitty. This one seems a little small for a real cat parent would have lots of cat toys and treats that might now even fit in this little stocking, but it had an adorable design I thought.
My exploration would not be complete without purroosing for cat books. I can not have enough cat books. When everyone else decides to get rid of books, I will have a full library in my house with a complete cat book collection THANK YOU!
Blended with cat items is often dog items as well, here were a few items I thought were very beautiful products.
I hope you get a chance to visit someday. Here is their link
