Shopping at Two Graces Volume 1

Perhaps if I added items from the shop every day to this blog I might finish before the end of the year, we'll see what happens. At some point I'll have to start listing things on the dreaded auction site, but for now readers of this blog will have a chance to shop Two Graces without having to physically be here. Descriptions, sizes and pricing will be below or between the items.
5 1/2" & 4 3/4" silver plated standing frames with deep blue velvet backings with original glass, as you can see falling out of the floral design at the top are a pair of falling Ank symbols placing these ca. 1920's SOLD
Architectural or Furniture detail moldings, resin cast,
Floral 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Traditional Scallop Shell 2" x 2 3/4"
There are approximately 200 pcs. total and are all sold out
Material for art projects or for glueing them onto furniture and even an entire wall!
9 Taos Ceramic Crosses each 2 1/2" - 3 1/2" tall
The lady I purchased these from needs some sincere encouragement, I hope to do that by selling out of them ASAP! (currently 3 of these are left, 1/13/11) Sorry Sold Out.
Vintage Tin Nicho Boxes, painted yellow ages ago by their former Taos owner, although traditional to have pictures of Saints in them these images have been replaced, the one on the right is missing it's top, probably a cross cut off out of frustration with a prayer not coming to fruition. Very typical, years ago my Mom threw a Saint Statue down the cellar steps smashing it to bits in a moment of anger over the passing of her Mom. These may or may not be from New Mexico, but were in a Taos home for many years, the one on the left w/Santo Nino is priced at SOLD and the one missing the top piece with the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Miracle is SOLD
The following assortment of Tin Frames are made in Mexico, and had been designed, created and imported by a Taos resident who had a business 20 years ago here selling these to shops in Taos & Santa Fe. I've bought out his stock on these so they are very limited availability. Although not quite Vintage they are unique and have a better quality to them than what is found today.
Small modern Patina Tin Frames with glass and stands, 3 3/4" tall can also be converted to hang nice variety, (above) Sorry Sold Out
Medium size Nicho Box Tin Frame with patina & swinging Glass Door and locking mechanism
6 1/4" x 3 3/4" image size 4" x 2 1/2" fits traditional Holy Card price $18.99 each ready to hang 6 designs there are some duplicates of these, limited stock. (above) Very Few Left...
Large Tin Nicho Box Frame, shiny (these can be distressed) with swinging glass door and locking mechanism 9" x 5 1/4" image size 5 1/4" x 3 1/2" price $24.99 each ready to hang
6 designs there are some duplicates of these, sold out
Oversized Tin Nicho Box Frame, standing or to hang, shiny or slightly distressed with swinging glass door and locking mechanism 11" x 8 1/4" enclosure area 6 3/4" height x 2 3/4" deep x 5 1/2" wide price SOLD OUT each 2 designs as seen
Thus begins the sampling of items from the shop Two Graces, although this sampling is tending to lean towards religious oriented items we carry a wide variety of items reflecting the curios of Taos & the Southwest. Shipping fees will always be minimal we do not intend to make a profit on shipping, of course with shipping there is then no Tax charged unless you are within the state of New Mexico in which case please come by and visit soon.
