Parting is such sweet sorrow…

April 23, 2012 by admin

Well, it’s happened – I’ve had to sell one of my little Penney & Company babies.  This gorgeous vintage camelback sofa, recovered in a fresh aqua and cream ikat fabric sold over the weekend!  I love everything I’ve brought into the shop, but I especially love this sofa.  The good news is, it’s going to a really good (and stylish) home.  The proud new owner was almost jumping for joy when she arrived after a drive all the way from Hamilton to claim her prize.  I’m happy she’s happy, but will be a little sad I think when she comes to pick it up.  Maybe I’ll go sit on it one more time…for good measure…

Here she is all fresh from the upholsterers, covered in plastic...

    I agree with Deidre….. Noooooooooo!! I loved that sofa and Ikat fabric is brilliant. Do another one!!

  3. I know! But that’s why with vintage you gotta move on it – cause you may never find another like it! Btw Pat – I guess you were right!

    Well the couch is gorgeous but now I’m definatley painting the trunk that I found @ the roadside white. Love the look and can’t wait to visit this store.

  8. I loved it too…so glad you sold it though…cause you need to sell things. That’s part of what you need to do now! And it will lead you on another search to make over another piece. And then we will get to see a picture of it online right? Make sure you take a good picture of all your babies!
    love izzy
