Nevermore

Attention literati, fashionistas, movie buffs and anyone who loves a mystery or if your initials are POE:  Offered for your approval is this very odd pin.  Is it amber?  Is it plastic?  Is it the emblem of a highly secretive order of Post Office Employees?  We have no idea.  There are no identifying marks except for the obvious reference to Edgar Allan.

Spooky, isn’t it!

We only have one of these, and once it's gone there is, to quoth the raven, "Never more!" Material not known. Pin on the back of this brooch works. Measures 1 3/8" in diameter.

We’re Gonna Have a Party!

…And you’re invited!

Our 10th anniversary will be celebrated on Saturday, May 5, from 10 am to 5 pm at the store.  You’ll find in-store specials, our new display case will be loaded to the hilt with items wondrous to behold, homemade cookies will greet you at the door and (are you ready for the best part?) we’re going to give away money!  You heard that right!  We’ll start the day awarding some big bucks to our charities but we’re also going to be giving $10 cash prizes to our customers.  Every customer who makes a purchase is eligible to enter the cash drawings which will be held every half hour throughout the day.  And at the end of the day, we’ll have a BIG DRAWING for $250 cash.  This is our way of saying, “Thank You!” to you.  It’s going to be fun.

Art Deco Luminescence

Sabino Art Glass, made in Paris in the 1920s and 30s, is a luminescent blueish white and so full of Art Deco class that it will make you feel like a connoisseur just for looking at it! This collection includes a squirrel, butterfly, dove and ring of birds.  Also is a bowl in the swallows design and one in the sea urchin pattern.  The atomizer is “Orchidee.”  The boudoir box is the “Fleurs” pattern, and the small bottle is “Frivolities,” which features pairs of scantily-clad ladies frolicking.  Outside.  And they’re old enough to know better.  Come in to the shop and check out this lovely display.

SOLD.   Sabino Art Glass, c. 1920s – 1930s. Made in Paris.

You’re Invited to a Party

Join us on Saturday, May 5, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary with a party, sales, and drawings for prizes. 

And there will be cookies.  Not just any cookies–homemade cookies.   Mark your calendar.  We’ll be open from 10 am until 5 pm.  More details will be posted here as the date approaches.  Stay tuned!

Also, don’t wait until May 5 to visit the store.  We’ve just installed a new display case which holds fine jewelry–including 14k gold and sterling, turquoise and other gorgeous stones–along with some of the most interesting decorative items you’ve ever see.  Coming up soon, we will offer a collection of Sabino Art Glass, which will be featured on this blog later this week.  These special items sell fast.  For example, the Amado Peña painting, shown below, sold in less than a week.  Elite Repeat is blessed with a wealth of fine donations, large and small.  Every one of them is a treasure no matter what the actual monetary value may be.

As our 10th anniversary approaches, we are mindful that our success is due to our faithful customers whom it is our pleasure to serve, our generous donors who supply us with such fine inventory and our wonderful volunteers who work hard and have fun doing it.  This celebration will be a great, big thank you to all of you!
