"The home is not the one tame place in the world of adventure. It is the one wild place in the world of rules and set tasks." Gilbert K. Chesterton.
Our homes are a retreat, our opportunity to be ourselves, to be refreshed. And more. The coming festive months and the cooling temperatures is a time to share ourselves in and through our homes.
At Janet's Antiques this October, we are celebrating the home with our annual Furniture Sale! We have acquired many beautiful and unique pieces embued with the legacy of past stewards, sent forward in our care for you to discover!
