May celebrates Bach

Carmel's Bach festival starts today. The full schedule is on our Web-site calendar
In celebration, May has shed her itsy-bitsy-yellow-polka-dot bikini and picked up the Cello. It's Yo-Yo-GrandMa. Our front window always creates interest and laughs.

Well I guess it's time to catch up to the 90s no 2000s. What would you call it anyway?
Regardless, Our sister-in-law, Shelly, made a slide show of our Carmel-by-the-Sea store.

Always look on the bright side of life

Our new store in down town Carmel-by-the-Sea is creating quite the buzz. all of our pieces, especially, Our lamps are getting so much attention. We have some wonderful new designs and have gotten back a few we have sold out. Each lamp is a work of art in it's own right. The latest edition of Artworks magazine is featuring a beautiful ad on "the Alexandria lamp".
I have put in a few pictures of Avant Garden and Home's lamps. They will definitely brighten any room.
Don't forget to go to our facebook page or submit your email. You could be Hudson's pick for our monthly gift certificate.

June at Avant Garden and Home

We have moved on past the US Open and brought in some new items. A recent high end craft show in 112 degree Las Vegas yielded some interesting new character and characters. Blanche is the Buxom southern Belle gracing the rear of the store. We brought her back with many chuckles along the way. Remember, What happens in Las Vegas...
Painted cedar fence panels and some surprising new ceramics fill in the Mix.
Hudson is beaming. besides being his birthday July 3rd, He also got our new amazing Grandfather clock named after him. The clock is so typical of their designs. (even though it's anything but typical) Sweeping lines and industrial looking coils ad an interesting twist to a Victorian feel. May is "gracing" the front window in her beach mode. There's always something odd about a mannequin of a 80 year old woman fondling an itsy-bitsy-yellow-polka-dot bikini. OK, you can stop singing now. making a long story short, Come on in. See You soon, Jeffrey
