Working in a Winter Wonderland

SO I spent my Tuesday helping out at my mom's shop (Southern Comforts) in Concord,NC. She and her friend/business partner run this super cute Vintage and Antique boutique. Being biased aside, it really is my favorite Antique shop. The way they combine their styles to create the most amazing place, Gosh.
It really just blows me away. The romantic, shabby, chic style they have, and the wide range of goodies they carry give them such a mass age appeal. They customers range from 15-90!
They completely redecorate almost every month, and that is no small feat with their location being a two story house. Their Christmas and Halloween set ups are my favorite! And the shop is glittery with magical little trees every where you look. They rest in Antique doorknobs, and are lovingly knick-named "Knobby Pines" They sell for $6.95-$20. I want a whole Forrest of them.

I also love posing for photos there, because there is so much to pose around! I feel like I just fit the decor.Abercrombie&Fitch Sweater(purchased second hand at Honeysuckle Hollow another of my all time favorite shops), Quicksilver Dress, Target Leggings, Vintage Belt, Vintage Dingo boots, Jewelry all my design)

Anyway, I love thier shop. It makes me want to get Christmas-y. I need to go find a tree. Now.
