eBay never goes out of style — If it’s out there, it’s on eBay, and that’s no lie. I decided that, as hard as it is to share eBay gems, that I should start sharing more of my favorite sellers with you because I have over 200 that I highly suggest, many of which I’ve shopped myself. Today, I’m sharing “GreyGardens_Laguna Beach”.
These guys specialize in the ever popular Hollywood Regency decor (at least it’s popular here in the United States — is it popular in your part of the world?). Bookmark them if this style suits you, because their items are spectacular. Like this room divider. Imagine it as a headboard painted in your favorite color?

I have to share these images from artist, Dallas Shaw, taken on opening night of her exhibit at Miami’s Art Fusion Gallery in the design district. Click here to link to the Miami design district website, it’s the best to refer to when you travel there. Also bookmark The Hotel because it’s amazing and Todd Oldham redesigned it. Okay, back to Ms. Shaw…
Largely influenced by fashion and music, her acrylic paintings span from works on canvas to works on vintage wallpaper (so cool), cards, t-shirts, and prints. Some of the work shown here has already been sold, but you can contact Dallas directly to inquire about her work. Thanks for sending in these photos, Dallas – we love it all!

“About this chair: This classic mid-20th century modern chair is a brilliant designed reproduction of the original Bertoia Wire Side Chair. Triple bright chrome steel frame. Designed in the early 1950′s by Italian born Harry Bertoia, the sculptural Wire Chair is a study of space, form, and function. With its unique bent and welded steel rod construction the chair is exceptionally strong and surprisingly comfortable. Comes complete with a black leatherette indoor or outdoor custom seat pad for durability.” – Estela

Jennifer Causey (Simply Photo) is one seriously talented lady. I can’t gush enough about her work, and I know I always do, but I can’t help it (partly because I don’t want to!). I’m such a huge fan; I stalk her etsy store constantly for new photos. It’s borderline sickness, I know. She just launched her latest series called “Hello Springtime” – full on gorgeousness for sure. These postcards below are available in sets of 5 or 10. Enjoy!

We vacationed in Maine this past weekend, stopping in Portland and landing further up the coast in Camden. It was an amazing time well spent. Although Portland is only two hours from home, it’s been years since I visited last. Not much has changed, it’s still as charming as ever, but I did find some great shopping to tell you about in case you ever find yourself in this adorable coastal city.
First stop, I visited Carrie at Angela Adams, then Diane at Ferdinand, and over to the waterfront where I stopped by Edith & Edna, a store I’d been dying to visit for a few months now, and chatted with Julie. It was there that I purchased some great things made by Curious Bird, Blabla, and a large 8″ blue bird vase by Joanna Mendicino. While strolling the waterfront, we grabbed bubble tea at Bubble Maineia (you must visit this place at 136 Commercial Street), and shopped at the massive Company C store located at 123 Commercial Street. Of course, many stops along the way at floral shops, clothing boutiques, and a few antiques stores, and we had to stop for seafood chowder, but finally we called it a day and headed up the coast to Wiscasset, where I stumbled upon Smitten (an amazing gem of a place with modern home goodies) and Rock, Scissor, Paper (a stationery store). Both boutiques are owned by Erika Soule, but I could only peek in the windows because they were closed when we arrived. I would love to meet Erika and shop her stores — so I think I’ll visit again in a few months. I could have emptied my wallet in Smitten, I think Erika and I have the same taste on nearly everything. It was scary looking in the window. It was as if decor8 had been transformed into a storefront. Ah, one can dream…
Of course, a weekend in Maine for us wasn’t all about shopping, we spent a lot of time enjoying the coast, taking pictures, and relaxing. I’ll be back tomorrow to post a few photos from the stores mentioned above. But for now I must go take care of all the mundane post vacation stuff… See you Tuesday!
