It’s Christmas crunch time & every year when I’m stuck in endless traffic, check out lines & parking lots with exhausted,frantic & crazed shoppers; I remind myself of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“I am thirsty for this water,” said the little prince. “Give me some of it to drink . . .”
And I understood what he had been looking for.

I raised the bucket to his lips. He drank, his eyes closed. It was as sweet as some special festival treat. This water was indeed a different thing from ordinary nourishment. Its sweetness was born of the walk under the stars, the song of the pulley, the effort of my arms. It was good for the heart, like a present. When I was a little boy, the lights of the Christmas tree, the music of the Midnight Mass, the tenderness of smiling faces, used to make up, so, the radiance of the gifts I received.

“The men where you live,” said the little prince, “raise five thousand roses in the same garden–and they do not find in it what they are looking for.”

“They do not find it,” I replied.

“And yet what they are looking for could be found in one single rose, or in a little water.”

“Yes, that is true,” I said.

    And the little prince added: “But the eyes are blind. One must look with the heart . . .”

Hi Everyone!

I’m happy to finally announce that The Savoy Flea & Strangelovely will be having an Open House, Sat. November 23rd from 5-8 pm. It’s been a long haul getting the new studio space set up with a lot of hiccups but so well worth it.

I’ll be adding a bunch of new items to the shop so come say hi, grab a cocktail & shop.
We’ll both be offering 20% off to thank you. Hope to see you soon at our new secret hideout location.

Happy Thursday! Summers over & the market seasons coming to a close. Renegade/Vintage Bazaar wasn’t in the cards for me this year, so I decided instead to have a 20% Sale now through this Sunday.

I’ve added some new Furniture items this week & have a ton of decor pieces at the studio that I’ve been neglecting to add to the website because it takes a wee bit of time to photograph all that stuff..& theres a lot of it. Barware, Decor Pieces & Tabletop..etc.

So if you see something you like send me a line to set up an appointment!

Check out The Collection Here!

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone! The studio’s coming together slowly but filling up fast with new finds. I’ve had a busy summer sourcing & working on many commission pieces & trying to make the studio tres awesome. We’ve had some still waiting on our front door, storefront & no a/c this summer but I couldn’t be happier to have a large space to work & show pieces.

There are some great new pieces in The Collection this week & I’ll be posting more soon.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by Randolph this summer. As the summer market season winds down, make an appt. to stop by, say hi & shop!

Hope you have a great weekend & if you see something you love, I’m working this weekend!
