For many years I thought of opening my very own home decor store. I love interior decorating and just about anything related to the home. I even went so far as to register a name with the IRS for my store in 2005 and started attending trade shows at Jacob Javits Center in NYC. I enjoyed the trade shows so much. I learned a lot and met so many wonderful people in the industry. The name that I chose for my store was Victoria tea. I wanted a name that was unusual and not necessarily a name that one would associate with a home decor store. Then I thought of adding my name to it to make it Xenia's Victoria Tea. My store was going to have a section where customers could sit down for tea, pastries and finger sandwiches.
Unfortunately, Victoria Tea never opened. I had just recently purchased my brownstone which required so much of my time to restore. I am just now finishing up with that project in 2012. Anyway, during my time trying to plan Victoria Tea, I found out about Cath Kidson at the trade shows. I immediately fell in love with Cath Kidson products and you can easily see why. The Cath Kidson brand feeds right into my shabby chic, feminine, girlie girl image. I just LOVE this stuff!
Cath Kidson fabrics are so beautiful. They are great for quilting, making curtains, pillow covers, etc.
Cath Kidson fabric makes a great floor pillow.
Cath Kidson tins for buttons and pins....so cute.
Cath Kidson even has carpeting too.
