Victoria Day weekend sale

Well, the old signage is coming down today, to be hauled off to neighborhood legend Ralston Bennett's signage shop, to be stripped and made ready for new paint. Also, Ralston will be making our new sandwich board for the front of the store, so we can write pithy comments and notices about sales, the weather, Ethel's mood of the day and such. We're really excited about the changes around here and to celebrate, we here at Ethel have decided to have a Victoria Day Weekend sale. Instead of closing on Monday as per our regular hours, we'll be open all day Monday May 24th, with some fun furniture finds out on the sidewalk and marked down prices inside. We want to make room for new stuff and what better way than to clear out the old? So come on out to celebrate the old gal's birthday (Queen Victoria, not Ethel!) And while you're here, you can check out some of our new finds for the store.
We just got in this gorgeous teak and tile table, originally purchased from DeBoers' in the 1960's.

This long and slim beauty is 5' long by 18" wide and is priced at $350.
We also have this new pair of vintage ceramic lamps with new shades.
If the shape looks familiar, it's because Jonathan Adler, one of our favourite contemporary potters, has been using this shape, reminiscent of the classic George Nelson bubble lamp for inspiration for many of his ceramic lines. We decided to pair this classic shape with new pale blush shades with gold flecks to pick up on the warm brown flecks in the ceramic. The pair is now very glamourous and is priced at $225 each or $400 for the pair.
There's lots more but you'll have to drop by the store to see it for yourself.
See you at the store!
