Antica Market’s shop at Sweet Clover Barn is set up for the Holiday Kickoff Sale. Farmhouse home decor, vintage furniture, unique finds and handmade gifts.
Well, spring has finally come and it felt like such a long wait this year. Living in the D.C. area means we will probably be jumping right into summer weather very shortly, but we will enjoy these few weeks of spring-like weather while we’ve got them. I must apologize it’s been terribly long […]
