It is so much fun to find an antique shop that carries furniture and small decorative items that you like when you are looking to decorate your home, beach house or country getaway in the cottage style. It is even better when it is the perfect shop that you can return to again and again as the inventory is constantly changing.
When we started to decorate our lakeside cottage in the Lakes Region of Maine, we were lucky enough to find just such a shop less than a mile for our home. My Sisters Garage is owned by two sisters, and is actually in the cute old-fashioned garage of one of the sisters.
Our sofas, chairs, beds and dining table were new but we needed the small items to make the cottage have a warm, inviting feel. Not only were we able to find items that we both thought would be perfect at their sweet shop. but we found that their prices were very reasonable.
When we came up this spring to open the cottage we drove by our favorite shop, My Sisters Garage and knew that something had changed. Their sign was missing at a time of the year when they should just be opening their door.
While driving south on Rt. 302 in Windham, we noticed their sign at what at one time was an old home right on the highway.
As it was the first of the week and they are only open Thursday through Sunday, we made plans to return at another time.
When we returned to their new shop we were pleasantly surprised with the new and larger place. Take a look at the photos we took inside. Everything is displayed in wonderful little groupings. I’m sure you will agree that there is something that most anyone would love to have for that cottage look.
Look at this charming iron bed, one of a pair.
A lovely white dresser.
What a great high back bed.
Here’s a pretty brass and iron bed.
What a romantic bed
If you look closely at the photos, you will see side tables and lamps, chandeliers, chairs and all kinds of accessories. There is also vintage clothing and so much more.
This little antique shop is a great shop less than thirty minutes away from either Portland, Maine or the Lakes Region of Maine. You can always find a little treasure here.
