Cottage Antiques

I am excited to introduce you to one of our new vendors Cordelia and Bob Mendoza of Cottage Antiques. Cordelia contacted me and we chatted and I really enjoyed her vision. Cordelia has been in the antiques business for more than 20 years. She loves to decorate using architectural salvage pieces, French and American antiques mixed with early floral oil paintings from the turn-of-the century 1900 -- all with patinas that are aged to perfection. Cordelia's casual cottage style is a mix of white linen with centuries old painted furniture, elegant glass and estate silver. Her store is in the quaint coastal town of Ocean Beach in San Diego, and is known for its whimsical displays of vintage finds. Cordelia and her husband Bob are always on the hunt for just the right pieces to add to their home and store. So... needless to say, I could hardly wait to see pictures of her treasures. I was not disapointed. Please stop by and say hi to Cordelia and Bob!
