A wonderful gift for women of all ages, they are the perfect way to rest tired toes after a big night in heels, to keep warm in the early morning hours, or to make a quiet evening by the fire a little cozier – and more glamorous.

The Gift Guide: Treasures from Halcyon House Antiques

0

It’s Christmastime and time to get to Halcyon House!  A bountiful array of gifts awaits: chunky necklaces, stylish roomy bags, elegant scarves, spiffy umbrellas, chic coffee table books, all you need for the tree, the table, the bar and more. And don’t forget to stock up on savory or sweet treats for your favorite hostess, or grab some for yourself to have on hand for guests.

Visiting Halcyon House feels like entertainment. There is always so much to take in, from the artful way they arrange a tabletop to the glorious way they decorate the tree! Incidentally, it’s a great place to take out of town guests, not only for a glimpse inside the store, but also for the beautiful drive. Just looking at Halcyon House is fun, but bring your plastic.  You’ll want a few things, guaranteed!

It’s no wonder the selection stands out.  As owner Jonathan Gargiulo told me, everything in the store is something both he and co-owner Stiles Colwill likes and would have in their own home or buy for their own friends. It shows.

See some of the stand outs below…
