Getting Ready for May!!

 The May sale is coming up fast - and we are all running around like crazy to get you the best treasures the world has to offer!  No one has really even started set up yet - in fact most of the treasures coming in are in various states of painting and repair or stacked on each other or peeking out of boxes.  BUT - I think you guys can all use your imaginations!  I love the blue color on this piece.  It isn't quite as bright as the photo makes it appear.
 This little 2 piece is a gem isn't she.  Barb is still working on paint but she is going to be gorgeous!
 Love the fabric on this old quilt.
 And another pretty quilt.  These spring colors are so fresh and would be great in your bedroom or at the cabin or thrown over a couch!
 Love the cute little dresser - but I really love the buckets!

 Cindy is playing with tablescapes!
 This little set is looking adorable too!  Not sure if it will sell as a set or separately - but either way it is perfect!
 What a great buffet or entry way piece or how about using this in a bathroom?
 Love the display/storage in here.
 Nice looking table.  Don't know if it will be painted or not..........
 Great color on this game board!
 The photo's color isn't quite right.  I tried to get it right but this was as close as I could get.  The color is called cinnamon - kinda orange and so fresh.
 MaryAnn was painting this handsome armoire today.  Can't wait to see it all done - and it has gorgeous hardware!
 Thought these little drawers were so cute!
 Blue retro dresser!
 There were a few stacks of wire baskets in all shapes, sizes and colors!
 Like the big springs and the jar of corks!
Nice little drop leaf and primitive table.

Styletastic April!

 No matter what your style or color choices - it just never gets any better than chippy white paint!  I think this cutey will be gone in a jiffy.
 Cubbies are such wonderful pieces for mud rooms or entryways or kids room!
 Stainless steel topped potting bench - complete with spigot!
 Old large mailboxes are great for trash or recycling!
 Hand done subway art - featuring highlights from Minnesota, Minneapolis and our 10,000 lakes!
 Center island with top salvaged from old school workbenches!
 Some of the best selections of lamps and lighting can be found at Second Hand Rose!
 This cooler is just what you need on your deck for all of those summer time get togethers!  Not an entertainer?  Fill it with plants!  Or your pool toys or..........whatever you want!
 This great industrial cart is the PERFECT center island.  Work space and plenty of storage below.  And the large vintage clock just makes it better!
 Drafting tables are always a hit.  Perfect for all kinds of projects!
 We love old cameras!
I think the birdies need a new home too!

April Treasures for All Styles!

 We have treasures in all shapes, sizes, colors and styles.  Great furniture and awesome home decor.  This petite sewing machine is such a piece - artwork for the seamstress in your life!
 Don't you just want to crawl in here with a good book and a cup of tea?
 We are all in love with the tin on the wall - and everything else in here!
 This little cupboard is just too darn cute!
 This awesome beadboard topped table comes as a set with 4 gorgeous metal chairs.  It makes such a statement!
 We have a bevy of porch swings this month - but this metal one might be my very favorite!
 I love these 2 pieces.  What great nite stands they could be!
 These stools would be perfect at my center island - bet they could work for you too!
 We love EVERYTHING in this photo!
 A couple of our "beary" best friends just hanging around!
 The little yellow set - sigh..................
 I admit it - I have a favorite piece this month!  And this Nehi beverage cooler cover is it!
 This is an airline storage box - how cool!
 Fan cover as pot rack?
Multi-colored dresser could go anywhere!

We've Got The April Blues (and greens!)

 All shades of blue and green seem to be the "hot trend" right now - and never let it be said that SECOND HAND ROSE doesn't follow the trends (with our own little twist of course!).  We have some soft serene blues mixed with creams and beiges in this setting.
 Blue and white is always so fresh and crisp and adds so much to a room.
 This beautiful green park bench would be perfect in any garden - or how about on the deck or front porch?  Add some colorful planters and it screams "inviting" and come on in and sit a spell!
 Aquas and teals and greens can all mix so well - and look so nice with white or pink or a pop of yellow.
 Fresh greenery and blooming plants make every little thing look better don't you think?
 This gorgeous trunk boasts a metal top and lots of storage.  Here it is mixed with white and yellow again - beautiful!
 The shades of blue on this work bench are so absolutely perfect!  It has such a great industrial feel and yet it is so soft it can go in any setting.
 Turquoise and white - definitely a feel good combination.
 This great piece from a farm truck has varying shades of blue and green on it.  Look how well it goes with red too!
 A nice fresh spring green - goes well with just about anything!
 Dark blue, spring green with a pop of bright color.  Perfect any time!
 This Lake Minnetonka sign would be perfect in any color!
 This vintage light fixture is beautiful white glass with just a small blue floral pattern.  I think it would be nice hanging low next to a bed instead of a lamp.
This beautiful dresser is the softest blue imaginable - drop dead gorgeous!
