Voila! Charles Spada Home, a new online adventure, is now available for your shopping pleasure.
It has taken a year to design and launch our new website, and this week we saw the addition of our online store. All very exciting and worth the effort. Now comes the fun part – stocking the shelves with a variety of exciting merchandise amassed over this last year to present to you. I hope you will enjoy perusing through our wares and be inspired to bring some of our collection home with you.
What I have enjoyed most this last year of plotting and planning was discovering the endless shopping possibilities that an online store offers, both in terms of connecting with our followers as well as the great pleasure it brings to me by way of seeking out the practical and whimsical. It seems to be the updated incarnation of the good old fashioned, all American general store, with a little something for everyone, from “gosh, don’t need that but why not,” to “ooh, I must have that.”
In addition to my antiques business, which I have run for nearly half a century, we have broadened our assortment, collaborating with some truly wonderful friends for the launch of our home shop. We’ve partnered with Georgia Macmillan to offer the most gorgeous line of custom embroidered table linens and pillow covers, special ordered and delivered in a couple of weeks. Our dear friends at AG Hendy’s in England are sharing a collection of specialty themed gifts, wrapped in vintage keepsake containers, and filled with beautifully crafted kitchen, bath, and hand-made accessories. Not to mention cotton tea towels perfect for double use as rather chic napkins that need no apology. Ginger Lyons de Neufville has shared her collection of antique textiles and an assortment of hand block printed table linens, bedding, and even clothing. Never to disappoint, we are happy to still offer fine antique furniture, art that tempts, lighting, and our array of French and English kitchen accessories, dinnerware, and ironstone.
Soon to come, from the Tuscan olive grove of Nancy and Mario Nicosia, we will welcome to our store their single pressed olive oil made from no less than four types of olives, along with a monthly recipe from Nancy’s own Tuscan kitchen. A bounty of quick, easy, and above all else, delicious recipes.
More to follow. Please keep in touch and enjoy the experience.
