The Grist Mill Antiques Center in Pemberton, N.J., is celebrating Hearts and Shamrocks this month with a special sales display dedicated to the upcoming holidays of St. Valentines Day and St. Patricks Day.
Grist Mill Antiques Center To Celebrate Hearts And Shamrocks
The centerpiece of Be My Valentine is a brilliant collection of vintage valentines, decorative items and jewelry surrounded by an elegant Cambridge Crown Tuscan bowl. Timeless antique lockets, cameos, sparkling Weiss pins and sterling bangles will make wonderful gifts for her, while vintage cuff links, pocket knives and watches will suit his style. Set a romantic table with cut glass or ruby red wine glasses, sparkling candlesticks and china patterned with roses. Looking for a gift for a friend? Consider a good book - better yet, make it a cookbook and prepare a wonderful meal to share.
A rose is a rose. Or is it? Traditionally the color of the roses represents the intent of the giver: red of course for love, pink for appreciation and yellow for friendship. Be creative and select a lovely antique or vintage vase to accompany a bouquet of flowers. With more than 200 vases from which to choose, the Grist Mill is the place to find anything from cut crystal to art pottery. A vase can be cherished for many years to come.
Luck of the Irish. Shamrocks, the national flower of Ireland, adorn a fine selection of Belleek porcelain vases and Royal Tara keepsakes in the sales display. These iconic patterns embody the spirit and charm of Ireland and make perfect gifts for both St. Valentines Day and St. Patrick Day.
