Last week we shared a gallery of photos to encourage you to look UP when browsing the shop. With items on high shelves and even hanging from the ceiling, you’ll definitely want to look UP.
But this week we share that LOOKING down is equally valuable while browsing Bahoukas Antique Mall. This gallery is a glimpse of just why you might want to notice lower shelves for more surprises!
This is just a quick peek at the variety of items waiting to be discovered when you remember to LOOK down!!!
With the various holidays coming up, we’re a really fun shop to browse for unique gifts and decorating ideas. We’re here and you can be sure, we’re watchin’ for ya! Stop by and browse.
Easter and the Signs of Spring are all around us. Here at Bahoukas Antique Mall we have a few ideas for you for your Easter Baskets, Easter and Spring Decor. For instance, check out this gallery of the cutest bunnies and Easter eggs! They’ll bring a smile for sure!
Bunnies and Eggs
Whether you use these bunnies for table decorations, Easter Baskets or just little reminders of spring tucked on shelves or tables about the house, they are delightful. Hurry in and make your selection soon.
Books About Bunnies Kids Will Love
Sometimes a little book tucked into the Easter Basket is just the perfect addition! We browsed our shelves to give you a sampling! Of course, that Gift doesn’t have to be about bunnies. But they seem quite appropriate for Spring!
