crows, crabs, and farmer pig at Whimsy on 7th !

Everything's coming up crows in our pre-Fall window.

Love the new vintage chest with nautical rope handles

and a burlap runner!
Creams, buttercreams,and whites with a touch of blue
are finding a new spot at Whimsy.

The other window at Whimsy on 7th is home to a great collection of
vintage bird cages.

Here's a view from the outside of our crows and numbers window.
Thanks to Michael who works on Sundays, our bathtub planters are thriving.
He has the greenest thumb around!

Lots of fun nautical pillows overflowing in a vintage wicker crib.

A pair of great striped chairs will greet you as you walk in.

Our always changing nautical/seaside areas on seventh are full of color right now.

A few fun friends to bring a smile to your face as you bop around

listening to the old time 30's and 40's tunes.

Hope to you stop by real soon and discover some great new finds

at Whimsy Antiques at 5042 7th Street.

Open every day 11-5.

And we ship all the time, so if you see a treasure,

give a call (805)684-7211
