I finally decided to hop and the bandwagon and join Seleta in her fab friday fun! I hope she approves of my fab find that I’m about to write about.
Yesterday I headed out of NY for a quick jaunt to CT. I hit a couple of antique stores, but instead of finding a fun thrift store type antique malls I found lots of serious antique shops with prices in the thousands. Suffice to say I didn’t make any purchases yesterday, but had fun driving around CT and seeing all the cute towns.
On my way to find the highway home I made a wrong turn and stumbled onto a store that had the words, “Sip and Shop” all over the place. Turned out to be a perfect detour, because they shop looked too fab to pass up and my mom wanted a cup of coffee, before we headed back on the road.
I gotta tell you the mocha and white striped awning along with that amazing blue door really lured me in.
Here is what we saw once we entered the store:
Close up shot of the cafe:
How amazing are those light fixtures and cake domes? Glassware is a huge part of Juliska and each of their pieces are mouth blown by artisans in the hills outside Prague. Talk about a conversation starter when you bring out their glasses at a dinner party.
The owners of Juliska really wanted to bring something new to the retail front and give customers a more European experience. The shop is part retail store, part cafe along with having a bridal salon so that you register for all your lovely gifts and a 9’ Koi pond fountain that also features their glassware.
Koi pond fountain:
I love the way they had everything displayed. I swear I’m a marketers dream, because I wanted everything in the shop or to at least work there so I could be surrounded by such beautiful things all day long!
Here’s a close up shot of their glassware:
They also carry ceramic dishes that are made in Portugal as well:
Plus their latest addition: Pewter Stoneware that can go in a dishwasher, microwave and oven!
Let’s just say if I had known of this place during my engagement I would have gone nutty in there with my scan gun!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are suppose to hit 70 today and tomorrow in NY so I’m excited.
Off to work on my DIY artwork project!
