New candles...

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did! :) I am back at it today... I pulled most of the Christmas.. including my tree from the shop today! Thank you too all of you there was not a whole lot left! We had another FANTASTIC holiday season! Thank you Thank you for supporting dainty daisies!

I have a new hobby.. well not really because I used to make candles alooong time ago! I recently as in yesterday..(Lol!) started making candles for my shop! They are very much the same only made by me! Soy based.. in rescued cups! I also added a few small tins. The tins will be reusable.. just bring your tin back let me know what scent you would like and save $1.00 on your candle purchase. You will receive $2. off on any tea cup or mug candle if you bring those back. Scents are limited & may not always be available.. but I will keep a running list at the shop for you to pick from!

I am gearing up for Valentine's day! I loooove Valentine's day.. well mostly just filling the shop with more pink & hearts! Yay!

Shop hours are 10-5 today! Come on down & check out some of our new inventory. I also just fixed my serger so I will have lots of new things in stock soon!

p.s. I have a ton of new Vintage dresses in.. SOOOOOO CUTE!

return FYI ...

I hope you all LOVE your purchases from dainty daisies however I understand you may receive a gift or two that may not fit or maybe you already have. I just want to clarify our shop return policy. I do not accept returns or give refunds. I do however let you exchange with in the artist or if needed a store credit will be issued. I ask that this be done with in 30 days of the purchase. Our inventory changes very quickly & I do have almost 30 consigners.. the paper work for a return can be quite confusing! I hope you all LOVE what you receive this year & don't have a need to make an exchange.. but if you do this is our policy!

Thank you all for making this holiday season another GREAT season here at dainty daisies! I appreciate all of your support! It means the world to me & my artists! I am always flattered with all the comments about my lil' shop being someone's favorite store! :)

p.s. We are open 10:00-4:00 today & tomorrow!

Happy Holidays!

(We will be open next week Tuesday -Friday closing at 4:00 New Years eve & Closed New years day!)

Christmas around my house...

Here are a few of my favorite Christmas decorations throughout my house this year! I collect vintage deer & santa mugs as well as vintage thermos(s).. I found the cutest deer last night & his tag said "really nice deer"

How could I resist?? ;)

Here are a few more deer I have found & this vintage tree.. it lights up and the lights are little birds! I found it for $4 while thrifting awhile back.. I have wanted one FOREVER!
It has a cozy new home on the bottom shelf on my vintage end table.

and these Santa mugs.. they spell out NOEL.. I adore them!

my vintage thermos collection, bottle brush trees & vintage santa mug on my old primitive cupboard in our dining room .. which hides all of my kids art & craft supplies.

here is a better pic. of the old cupboard.. Can you believe I found this almost 10 years ago for $25. at a rummage sale???

I have a few more photo's to share but blogger only lets me upload 5 at a time.. stay tuned!

Shop hours are 10-5 today! I also just got in more handmade soap from Namaste Creations! We have lots of great gifts available!!
