To take a virtual tour of yet another fabulous shop?
Come and experience the splendor that is
Located in Carmel Valley, just outside Carmel, California, Tancredi & Morgan has become a destination for antique collectors, interior decorators, and treasure hunters alike.
The store, the joint venture of Roger and Marsha Alldis, keeps inspiring locals and visitors with its constantly evolving design aesthetic.
Celebrating their 25th year, Tancredi & Morgan still mixes the old with new, collecting finds from all over Europe and the United States.
Roger, born and raised in South Africa, is always in search of old mossy urns, chandeliers, green and yellow pottery from France, and interesting architectural elements.
His background in engineering fuels his interest in antique children's toys and influences the striking zinc tables he crafts himself.
Marsha's clothing line - from the simplest tucked linen shirts to exuberant patchwork hobo bags made of vintage textiles - still persist to be a local favorite.
Come by during the holidays and you are sure to find a collection of Marsha's handmade pieces, from crowns to cards to vintage inspired banners.
Their daughters, twins Megan and Gwynneth, remain an integral part of the family business.
Constantly inspired by their worldly pursuits, they always return energized to rework the look and feeling of the store.
The day I was there, Gwynneth was holding down the fort and kindly gave me carte blanche to take as many photos as I liked to share on my blog!
As you can see, I went to town!
How could I not!
She then pointed across the way telling me that they recently opened an annex where their newest shipment from France had just arrived.
What started as a Holiday Pop Up Shop now houses even more amazing wares!
However you look at it, it's definitely worth the trip!
Antique pottery, including tureens, chocolatiers, jardinieres, yellow ware, and apothecary jars.
All manner of vintage culinary wares in the warm country styles they are known for.
Also chandeliers, bistro chairs and tables, Belgian linens, baskets.
Enjoy the rest of the show...
It is sooo GOOD!
