Christmas at Rose Mille

Vintage Christmas Village Decorations

I recently discovered Rose Mille, a ShabbyChic/Vintage shop in downtown Stillwater, Minnesota (with a larger store just blocks away).  This pretty store is filled to overflowing with vintage craft and millinery supplies and sooo much more.  Now that I have discovered it, I am sure to find excuses to visit often…Right now, the store is all decked out for Christmas…

 Christmas Village Decorations

Rose Mille is known for their glass glitter, and they even have a Glitter Bar (more on that next time.)


They offer a monthly cachette-a hat box filled with seasonal supplies for your own creative inspirations…  (see the goodies in the December cachette here)



I couldn’t resist a few yards of these vintage Santa towels:


and I thought these glitter houses were particularly charming:



Real vintage bottle brushes…


and while this tree is lovely, it allows a sneak peek at the ribbon wall behind it!


Rose Mille is the kind of place that makes one smile on a cold and snowy winter day…


I promise, I’ll be back in January…with more photos…

If you can’t make it to Rose Mille in Stillwater, they are available online as well…www.rosemille.com
