Nov 26th-Dec 31st: Fantasy of Lights
Come celebrate the 11th Anniversary of "Lighting the Valley with Fun" at Fantasy of Lights, a drive-through holiday lights display spectacular at Vasona Lake County Park. The shows goes on nightly starting November 26th and continuing through December 31st at Vasona Lake County Park from 6-10pm.

This time honored Los Gatos tradition commences the sparkle of the season as we power up the Christmas lights on the majestic 100-year old redwood in the center of the Town Plaza. The tree can be seen from near and far and has been a town tradition for well over 30 years.

The 54th Annual Los Gatos Children's/Holidays Parade is a great family event that captures the warmth of the holiday season each year with festive entries, musical wonders and plenty of cheer. Don't miss it! Saturday, December 4th, 11:00 a.m on Santa Cruz Avenue. Rain or Shine!  Stop by Vintages ... we have a great view of the parade.

Vintage English Red Transferware

This collection of vintage red transferware china is quite nice.  The pieces, which range from teapots to teacups, are all from pre-WWII.  There are three different patterns.  We have Mason's Vista in mulberry; Copeland's Spode Tower in pink; and Enoch Woods' English Scenery in red.  Come on in while we still have a varied selection -- or email us and we can send details and photos.

Ceramic Fragments by Shirley Robles


Plaque with glass beads ($49.95)
We recently discovered the ceramic sculptures and fragments created by Danville ceramic artist Shirley Robles.  Shirley has been working in clay over the past thirty years, creating a variety of sculptures and these wonderful, inspirational plaques which she calls fragments.  As Shirley tells it:

"The Story of a Fragment:  Creating a symphony of design and wisdom with porcelain clay.  This, torn fragments of clay are rolled between two sheets of canvas.  A phrase is selected to inspire positive energy with meaningful wisdom.  Designs are created by combining the beautiful antique teak wood stamps of India with rubber stamps of modern day."

We have selected a sampling of her work and now offer it at Vintages, in the shop and online.   These make wonderful gifts and are wonderful ways to set the mood in any room.
Garden words of wisdom ($39.95)
Happiness is ... ($39.95)
Small inspirational sayings and quotes ($24.95)
