5 Spring Must Have's

Good JuJu

Who doesn’t enjoy adding a few new things to their home and their wardrobe as the seasons are changing? Here are a few ideas for how to bring some fresh fashions into your life this Spring without breaking your budget: 

1)     A pretty sun hat – perfect for gardening or an afternoon tea party. Wearing a unique style accent like one of these cute hats will make your friends and neighbors want to know where you have been shopping. 

2)     Vases for fresh cut flowers – think outside of the box – use vintage pitchers, antique apothecary bottles, mason jars – anything that holds water as a statement piece flower vase.

3)     An artistic piece for the garden – iron, tin, wood – anything with an appealing architectural shape. Get out the spray paint if you want to change the color of your new garden piece.

4)     The perfect front porch chair – something comfortable for relaxing at the end of a long day. Add a colorful pillow in an outdoor fabric that ties in with your home’s exterior color scheme.

5)     Cheerful drink glasses - for entertaining friends or for enjoying a quiet moment to yourself. Lemonade and iced tea will be even more refreshing when served in a fun, vintage glass.

Travel with Us to Paris

Good JuJu


It is always inspiring in the antique business to work with a decorating theme. We are loving the beauty-filled and romantic theme of “Springtime in Paris” at Good Ju Ju this April. Our vendors are busy adding touches of cheer to their spaces with vintage and antique French themed items. The combination of vintage, Spring and Paris lead creative minds toward many enticing decorating options – bursts of color inspired by the arrival of Spring flowers, chippy flower pots, concrete bird baths, elegant iron garden gates, rain drenched stone walkways.

Even if you aren’t planning a trip to Paris this Spring, here are a few ideas to help you feel like you have brought a little vintage French spirit into your home and into your heart:

Feel the Romance of the French Flower Markets – Gardens and Flower Markets in France are epic in their beauty and richness. Make your home feel like Springtime in Paris by bringing a bouquet of fresh flowers into the house. If you have blooming flowers in your yard, this couldn’t be easier. If you don’t have flowers or flowering bushes in your garden, stop by the supermarket on the way home from work and treat yourself to a Springtime bouquet. Fill a favorite antique vase, metal garden planter or mason jar with freshly cut tulips, daffodils, daisies or forsythia branches. Put a large bouquet in a prominent location and smaller bouquets (or even a single stem) on your nightstand or bathroom sink. Smile, smell the fresh floral scent, and think of Spring and nature’s simple beauty before you go to bed and the first thing when you wake up.

You can almost smell the flowers at this market in Paris.

Be a Tourist – Decorate your home with images of your favorite French tourist spots – the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Versailles – pick any favorite and add a lovely picture, print, or vintage statuette to your existing décor in a place where you can look at it often – the dining room table, your bedroom dresser, a windowsill in the kitchen. Every time you see it, smile and think of sightseeing in Paris – exploring a treasured site on a carefree day.

Treat Yourself and a Friend – On your next trip to the grocery store, pick up some freshly baked croissants or a baguette. Call a friend and invite him or her over for brunch or afternoon tea or for an evening drink. Decorate the area where you plan to entertain with a few simple Springtime pieces. For brunch or tea, set the croissants on a pretty floral or antique silverplate tray. Set the table with linen napkins and get out the china teacups. Don’t forget the fresh flowers that you now have in the house. For an evening get-together, set out some wine and cheese with the baguette. Toast the celebration of Spring and friendship. Most importantly, appreciate that fact that you have taken time out of your busy schedule to sit back, relax and enjoy the company of a good friend.

West End Salvage Joins Good Ju Ju

Good JuJu

Don Short, host of HGTV’s West End Salvage, and his team of pickers and designers will join Good Ju Ju, a local West Bottoms Vintage Store, in August. As seen on DIY & HGTV, West End Salvage centers around Short’s store, West End Architectural Salvage and follows him and his crack team of pickers, carpenters and designers as they find and create amazing one-of-a-kind pieces out of salvaged treasures.

Whether they're prying unusual details off the sides of old buildings or competing with quirky Midwest pickers for the ultimate find, they take their haul back to Don's 50,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Des Moines to spin gold out of straw. In the end, whether it's a lamp made from a bakery whisk or a bench fashioned from a pig trough, these items will ultimately become the centerpieces of stunning room makeovers for customers in the know.

Decorating a Room With Color

Good JuJu

Decorating a room can sometimes feel overwhelming. You pin posts on Pinterest or find pictures on the internet, then look at your room and try to figure the best way to get things organized and put together. What many of us forget, are how the smallest things in a room can bring it all together or, how the smallest element can add drama to any room or space. For instance, you can take one of those inexpensive gaudy mirrors and paint it and put trinkets in the same color all around it - this adds a focal point to any room.

I love the way this person decided to add lots of color to a plain white wall. They used white shelving to add color groupings of their collectibles along with matching pillows and rug to add pizzazz to their white room.
