Holiday Shopping At Queen Anne Antiques, Canton, CT
Right now Queen Anne Antiques in Canton, CT. is on the top of my good find list after I discovered a turquoise blue 1950s foot rest there a few weeks ago. This Mid Century treasure was purchased for my art studio at The Farmington Valley Art Center in Avon, CT.

A few months ago, I wrote about her "Global Style" when she seemed to have an awful lot of African masks and carved pieces keeping company with textiles from here, there and everywhere. But now most of her East meets West stuff seems to be gone.
April Is Full Of Surprises At Queen Anne Antiques
So what is April currently collecting for the store? I guess I would have to say, cozy holiday cabin style collectibles and decor. But hurry over there, because I have no idea, what the place will look like in a week or two. Let me know what you find.
