~ shopping at allen's

Stopped by Allen's the other day for a stroll through the store. I'd heard about some new things and a new look and I was anxious to get in there and see for myself! I used to take photos with my phone and send to my sister-in-law Nina... this is so much easier!
Let's go shopping!

The store owners, while in Istanbul, sat on this interesting couch and had a chat in a store they do business with. They fell in love with the charming setting while sipping tea, and asked to purchase the piece for the store... 

I really love the pillows!

Isn't this color divine?

Cool chandelier..

Beautiful pillows are everywhere!

Love this charming painted piece... that color!

Love the partridge in a pear tree, 

and the darling yellow flowers in a blue vase.

Allen's always has great pottery... I have my fair share!

I bought a piece from this collection when I moved into my house a decade ago for my breakfast room table... it's still there and I still love it!

Cool headboard...

I've almost bought this ten times. I just love the dripping paint! Perfect on a patio, or at the front door, or next to a bench in my living room behind my couch...

Wouldn't this be nice on my veranda? Hanging over the butcher's table? Why yes. Yes, it would.

Boy would this ever warm up a white wall!

More charming pottery pieces...

Nina, this is like the one in my dining room!

This is made of hand-cut paper! It's so charming in person... hard to tell in photos.

These antique Tibetan boxes really caught me eye... There's still one left! 

I almost bought this. Isn't it lovely? I can't figure out where to put it!

Wow Jan soo many interesting finds! I saw several things screaming to be in YOUR house, that green hutch, LOVE. The sofas pillows from Turkey are all your colors, and they are beautiful. That kilim bench is also great looking. No wonder you love going there, hope you had fun and left with a trinket (or two)!

Awesome store! My favorite thing is the pottery with fruit that you said you had bought a piece of sometime back.
