     Well the good news is we all survived Mother's Day without a trip to Sickles...Hopefully it will get sorted out soon because I have no idea where I am going to buy my fresh corn if they don't! And, on a more serious note, it is painful to think of what their family must be going through. While Keith and I can attest that the vicissitudes of owning a small business are many, one of the benefits of having a furniture store is that unlike produce, furniture does not have a sell by date. When someone asks Keith how long we have had a certain item in stock he usually says it's not milk so who cares? Snarky, maybe, but in fact a quick turnover is less important to us than selling a worthy product that will last not just a season or two, but for generations. 

 

     Meanwhile I hope you are enjoying Spring in all its glory. Who doesn't love the longer days and warmer weather? The only downside may be, suddenly, with all this abundant natural light, you are starting to notice that things on the homefront are looking a bit tired--but not to worry.

     Just zip into British Cottage!  We're not just a furniture store; we have a curated selection of artwork: prints, photography and paintings for a quick (and affordable) refresh. Or maybe you just need some blue and white ginger jars for the mantle, or a couple of toss pillows--we've got that covered too.

     Of course, if you want to go all out and get a new sofa or dining room table don't fret. We have plenty of stock--in stock! See for yourself what the interior design wizards from North Carolina have wrought, along with yours truly's unique mix of antique and rustic chic.

      Questions? Design dilemmas? That's what we are here for. Let's face it, you can only get so much design inspiration from a web site or Pinterest--and it's always better to see (and sit on) furniture in person. Not sure where to park? There are no restrictions on the street but if you'd rather not deal with the traffic we have a few parking spaces behind the store and we promise if you can get in we can get you out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      For even more design inspiration take a peek at our  British Cottage Blog.  Whether exploring the ins and outs of sofa buying or peeking into possibly your neighbor's home, we offer design tips and glimpses into the real houses of New Jersey--even recipes. 

      While our background was not originally in interior design we have been in this business long enough to know what should go where. When you are here we will be happy to take the time to help you figure out exactly what your home requires and do our best to make it happen. The more information you come in with--the easier it will be. Measure, measure, and then measure your space again. We're happy to see photos so shoot us an email: bcapine@gmail.com (it is easier for us to see your images on the desktop).

     Call, 732 530 0685, if you have any questions. We can provide local delivery of any item, whether it be a lamp or a sofa and if you live out of the area we will ship via whatever method it takes.

                   

                 Cheers,

                                                                                   

                      Tricia and Keith
