I met Amy Lemons McDermott, owner of Lemon Tree Vintage Market out at Safety Harbor’s Market on Main several months ago. I loved her fresh take on blending the old with the new, her whimsical designs using vintage silver plate pieces such and cups and creamers, and the use of lemons. I have eagerly been waiting for her to open her shop, which was in the works.
I loved that her maiden name is ‘Lemons’ and that she uses lemons to honor her mother, who recently passed.
Amy opened her shop at The Alley at Belleaire Bluffs three weeks ago. I love this great little “village” in Belleaire Bluffs with vintage, farmhouse and antique stores, as well as a bakery. If you are visiting town or looking for a fun girls day out for shopping, you Must visit!
Even more exciting, Amy let me “dress” one of her tables with my dishes for a lemon inspired tablescape. 🍋
As soon as I found a lemon design tablecloth at Home Goods over the summer, I knew I must somehow show it to Amy.
I set her beautiful farmhouse table with green and yellow Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage plates.. I used Amy’s Kate Spade lemon napkins, small candles at each place setting, and vintage cut crystal wine glasses. I also added some candle sticks and vase that she had in the shop.
She loved the finished product and said her customers are just amazed when they see the table first thing when they walk into the shop!
