With summer in full swing, here’s a look at some of the many items we carry to add beauty, charm and interest to your garden decor…
We love these antique French iron crosses circa the 1800’s! They are rare, heavy, and beautifully ornate made of solid cast iron.

I love the iron work on this couch, which would look great in a sun-room. This neon clock is a real show-stopper, at 3 feet wide it dresses a wall nicely! This is said to be French prison art, the fine beading on this is amazing!
