We have several sets of vintage cocktail glasses in the shop right now. With nice weather upon us, it’s time to dream up some summer cocktails. We personally like the Moscow Mule and had an amazing version recently at The Walrus and The Carpenter. Using fresh ginger beer is key. And serving it up in a frosted vintage cocktail glass, even better!

With the warmer weather upon us, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor parties and concocting some yummy cocktails. But a cocktail is not complete unless it’s served up (on the rocks or neat) in a beautiful vintage cocktail glass. I have some gorgeous vintage glasses, an ice bucket and cocktail shaker for sale in the shop that would be perfect for that Bourbon Mule, Sidecar, or French 75.
Need some ideas of what to serve in these vintage beauties? Below are a couple of my favorite cocktail recipes – some sweet and some just pure and simple – from some amazing lifestyle + food bloggers including Erin @ Apartment 34, Eden @ Sugar and Charm, and Kiran Tarun @ Kirantarun.com.
If you have a yummy drink recipe you want to share, please drop me a line with your drink featured in your favorite vintage glass and I’ll post it on Instagram.

I love the Hunters Alley’s tag line, ‘The Hunt is On” and completely relate when shopping for quality vintage pieces. It is a hunt when seeking out vintage and some days you walk away with nothing after digging, scouring sales, and looking for that one of a kind piece. But on a good day, you pick up some amazing pieces, walk away with a huge smile on your face, and can’t wait to tell your friends what you scored.
I am thrilled to share my recent finds with you that I recently posted to the Hunters Alley storefront including a vintage ram perfume bottle, mid-century red + gold glasses and much more. Stop by and check out the latest merchandise…and stay tuned as new pieces are added to the shop each week.
Need some inspiration on how to incorporate these lovelies in your home? Check out some of the beautiful photos below :
It’s easy to dress up a book shelf with all white ceramics and color popping book covers. The vintage ram head perfume bottle would look stunning when displayed with other white ceramics.
And who doesn’t love a good bar area for serving up cocktails in some of your favorite vintage barware. The mid-century red + gold glasses featured in the shop would be perfect displayed on a gold tray on your tabletop or barcart. Add some personality by displaying small brass figurines, a vintage decanter and lamp and you’ve got the perfect spot for hosting your next soiree.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive a promotional email from Chairish with pieces from the shop featured in their Seattle – Local Chairished Collection. I absolutely love the AnthologyHouse pieces they paired together. Thank you Chairish!
And I ADORE the Guest Curator Chairish is featuring… one of my favorite local bloggers, Cassandra LaValle of coco + kelley. Cassandra has curated a tropical, eclectic vibe for her collection and it’s gorgeous! And a huge shout out to Cassandra for picking the AnthologyHouse Vintage Rattan Peacock Chair, Danish Greek Key Chairs, and Yellow + Green Abstract Painting, Overcast as some of her favorite picks. This just made my day!
With the holidays upon us and in the true spirit of giving, we have to share a story with you about one of our customers. In October, we were contacted by Sarah Bryant Wilcoxen about our beloved Hollywood Regency Brass Bar Cart that was for sale on Etsy. Sarah was not only interested in purchasing the bar cart, but several glam barware pieces to accompany the cart for an upcoming charity event she was participating in for the Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.
Sarah explained she was a designer for the Festival of Trees, an annual fundraising event that is attended by more than 12,000 community members. For the past 26 years, funds raised at the Festival of Trees have provided a new helipad, a state of the art Emergency Department, pediatric ventilators, infant warmers, and other life saving equipment. In 2012, they raised nearly $1.7 Million for the hospital.
When she explained why she got involved in the event and that the proceeds would benefit the children of Mary Bridge, we couldn’t refuse the offer to help. We were thrilled our pieces would be auctioned off for a good cause.
Sarah, tell us a little bit about the Mary Bridge Festival of Trees event and how you got involved.
I have been designing trees for the Mary Bridge Festival of Trees for 8 years now. I got in to it after doing a promotion as a Seahawks Sea Gal Cheerleader at the Gala for several years. I have always admired the designs at the Festival of Trees and wanted to be a part of something that was helping such a great cause. Each year I get to come up with my own design and after the Great Gatsby movie came out this last Spring, I was so inspired with the gold and black from the movie and just knew I had to do a Gatsby tree.
How much did your tree raise? Did participants have any favorite pieces?
My tree helped raise $4,500 for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. Everyone LOVED the Hollywood Regency Brass Bar Cart. The vintage ice bucket was also a favorite.
How did you discover AnthologyHouse?
I found AnthologyHouse on Etsy while I was searching for a Vintage Brass Bar Cart. I was so excited when I found the perfect one and not only were you local, in Seattle, but you also had several other items that were perfect for my tree’s theme! The vintage brass coasters and regency ice bucket were the perfect accents on the brass bar cart. And the vintage Greek key glasses looked fabulous lined up next to the liquors.
Thank you so much for supporting this great cause and I look forward to purchasing from your store again!
Thank you Sarah for sharing your beautiful photos and telling us all about this great cause for Mary Bridge. We would love to participate again!
This is a big week over here at AnthologyHouse! Today, our friends at Chairish have launched our homepage feature Bar by AnthologyHouse! In partnering with Chairish, we are offering a gorgeous selection of vintage merchandise to glam up your home or office space for the holidays, most notably your bar cart. Not only did we score a spot front and center, we had the opportunity to interview with the charming and personable, Lin Koh which you can check out on their blog today. The entire Chairish team is truly fabulous in every sense of the word and we love their enthusiasm, passion, and candor about one of our favorite pieces for the home and the hottest trend in home decor – the infamous bar cart!
Speaking of cocktails, the Chairish blog also lists one of our favorite new recipes, Chatoullier Moi Salope, it’s a bit risqué but oh so divine. Our cocktail loving friend Felicia Hyllested, teamed up with us on a recent girls weekend getaway to create this dazzling martini with a greyhound twist — fresh squeezed grapefruit and lemon juice, mint, ginger syrup and vodka to name a few ingredients. This drink is hot and and a must for your holiday soiree.
We invite you to head over to the AnthologyHouse storefront on Chairish and share the love by sharing our shop and interview with your friends. We are always appreciative of your endless support.
Have a lovely Thanksgiving!
We are thrilled to share with you that Chairish has selected AnthologyHouse to be a featured seller! We will be selling never before seen exclusive pieces including vintage bar carts, Mid-Century and Hollywood Regency barware, tabletop décor, furniture and much more all centered around one of our favorite pieces, the vintage bar cart!
Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the pieces you’ll see when the sale goes live, Monday, November 25th! We hope you’ll stop back and visit our sale and check out our interview that will be featured on their blog on the 25th.
We are sooooo excited to share we have partnered with Chairish, an online consignment marketplace for design obsessed people to buy and sell exceptional pre-owned home furnishings. We were contacted by Chairish a little over a month ago about a potential partnership and we immediately sprung at the opportunity. We’ve been wanting to branch out since launching the shop a year ago and knew they were the right selling platform for us. Not only do they assist us with facilitating the sale of our pieces, they also arrange for all our shipping, and have a 48-hour return policy for buyers.
If you haven’t heard of Chairish yet, trust us you will. Since launching in February 2013, they have collaborated with such stellar designers as Emily Henderson, Justina Blakeney, and Nicole Balch to name a few. And they’ve already been featured in InStyle, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Country Living, and O Magazine. Not too shabby for a company that’s not even a year old yet.
With Chairish, we will be offering buyers exclusive pieces including vintage bar carts, furniture, barware, and of course those glam pieces you’ve come to expect with AnthologyHouse. We will continue to sell smaller vintage pieces through our Etsy shop while maintaining an online storefront with Chairish.
So stop on over to Chairish and check out their fabulous vintage offerings. And be sure to take a peek at their Curator’s picks…they are constantly changing it up with new vintage inventory. It’s some serious eye-candy!
