I hope you are having a good, warm week! We have some great new items here in store! Some brass items being my favorite.
Growing up there were these amazing brass jack shaped bookends in my parents home. They were just different and always caught my eye when I walked in the room. Since then every time I see brass trinkets come through the store I always feel very nostalgic.
At this point, I would explain the history of brass trinkets, but I fell asleep researching it, thus it was really boring so I am not going to do that to you.
I think brass is a very functional metal for decorating. It blends very well with other metals, if you have gold in your home, it caches the gold tones in the brass, same with silver, it doesn’t stand out too much saying ‘HEY I DON’T MATCH.’
Just recently we got some awesome brass pieces, my favorite being a vase featuring two cranes. Another favorite piece is an engraved frog ashtray with its mouth open to catch ashes. Very cool!
Until next time friends,
