BOOTH 65 / THE COTTAGE ARCHEOLOGIST at the Alley Cat Antique Mall, Anacortes, WA
In January 2011, Rebecca built a tiny garden shed Booth 65 at the Alley Cat Antique Mall in Anacortes Washington. A structure that she designed and built from scratch using many recycled materials http://www.rebeccameloy.com/artworks/category/C60/59 . As THE COTTAGE ARCHEOLOGIST, Rebecca has stuffed the retail space with antique collectibles, vintage house items, garden items, and quality vintage japanese prints and art by a wide selection of creative people http://www.rebeccameloy.com/artworks/category/C63/59 and http://www.rebeccameloy.com/artworks/category/C62/59 . Rebecca specializes in finding unique and original arts or crafts and carefully refurbishes pieces to give them new life. Additionally, she includes some of her own quilts, garden trellises and tables http://www.rebeccameloy.com/artworks/category/C65/59, affordable watercolors, or whatever she deems right for the season. To view photos of Booth 65 and merchandise, clink on the Artworks link and then on The Cottage Archeologist on this website.
On any day of the week you can visit Booth 65. The mall is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and has a dedicated group of experienced helpers to assist you. Within walking distance you will also find wonderful cafes, a brew pub, more antiques, art galleries, and ships being restored. From Anacortes, you can also catch a ferry to visit the San Juan Islands should you want to make a three day weekend jaunt.
Directions: From I-5 drive on West 20 to Anacortes. At the round about go right. Drive north toward the ship yard on Commercial. At 3rd, the Alley Cat Antique Mall will be situated on your right.
