Circa Who in West Palm Beach

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I am on my way down to Palm Beach for Spring break and while I am down there, if anyone is looking, I can be found at Circa Who , my favorite store in West Palm Beach.  I check in on their new finds almost daily.  When I first discovered this jewel of a resale shop in the Northwood section of West Palm Beach, getting down there over winter break became a priority. Once, I was after a ceramic bamboo lamp.  The lamp I had spotted on line was sold the day before I got there, and would soon appear in the Garnet Hill catalog for the Lilly Pulitzer spread (pictured below).  At least it was Lilly that beat me to it!  No fear, there was a slimmer, taller pair that would look even better in my family room. Phew…

Garnet Hill catalog…..That’s my lamp!!!

You will find  unique, Palm Beach vintage ‘must haves’ reminiscent of a bygone era on the island.  I could not pass up sharing this new Pagoda Mirror that is on the site right now. I have a cream one just like this in my kitchen that I bought last year.   It  adds an unexpected kick in my traditional New England home.

Love the dog on top of the garden stool.                                                                              

I am truly obsessed with lighting… all lighting, and have promised my husband that I will not indulge any more…but maybe one more time.  This chandelier is one of their latest treasures, and I think it might be one for the collection.

You do not have to limit yourself to a chandelier.  They have more lamps than anyone could ever dream of. And the more lamps, the better.

Same green but in a table lamp.

These remind me of my Asian figurines that I transformed with the help of The Accessory Store in Stamford, CT.

Circa Who has the most impressive inventory of chairs.  While there are tons of imitations out there, these are the real deal and are worth shipping up  sight unseen (they will take care of that for you) and recovering if needed (but most of the vintage Palm Beach fabric may be worth keeping).

Garden stools are now sold in every catalog but they always have an original selection and no 2 are ever the same.  LOVE LOVE these elephants.


I have been looking for a table to put in my kitchen and have been craving a fretwork console.  Could this be the one?  I will find out when I am there next week on vacation.


Or a Chippendale Credenza?  Love the faux bamboo. Plus I could store more.


How fun is this elephant table! 

A similar one  in Ruthie Sommer’s pool pavilion.  She probably found it at Circa Who. 


These Dorothy Draper imposter’s are my new lust after seeing a pair at 262 Tokeneke Road (asking $1,099,000 through Halstead Property.  If you would like to see this home contact us).    They make a statement anywhere.  I may have to find a spot for these…..



My mother still has her coffee table just like this from the 70’s. She still will not give it to me.


I just love what Tracy has done wit this resale shop and one can tell she loves what she does.  We look forward to seeing more of these Circa Who pieces in Darien, Connecticut!!!
