Enchanted Castles

This Channel fashion show glamorously captures the enchantment I experience on buying trips through the United Kingdom and Europe in the winter. Whether I buy from ancient castles or buy things that came from ancient castles, manor houses or villas, it is always fun to imagine the enchanting history behind my finds as they find new homes.  We just unpacked a container of over 400 items from my most recent buying trip at STASH.  You can view the items at www.leestanton.com
