Let’s Go Bohemian ~ The Art of Boho Bliss

Mid century modern? Minimalist? Memphis style? Nope, right now we’re going Boho! Hippie chic! Bohemian! Yes, it’s boho bliss!

Gypsy wagon


Think Rudolph Valentino.  Gypsy wagons.  Flowing rich fabrics of purple and orange.  Middle eastern hanging lamps, animal prints, candles. Comfy cushy chairs and sofas filled with comfy cushy pillows. And throw some of those pillows over there in the corner!  


“I hope I make it to The Mercantile on time.” – Rudolph Valentino

Rules? There aren’t any. Bohemian is for those of us who disdain rules. Do whatever fills your heart with fun.  

Slightly minimalist bohemian

Come on in to The Mercantile. Our current mashup, BEACH BLANKET BOHEMIAN BOARDS THE ORIENT EXPRESS, is filled with wonderful boho items that will assist you on your journey to bohemian bliss!

Happy Father’s Day 2018!

Father’s Day is coming up. You have a few more days to find a special gift for your special dad! Come on in to The Midtown Mercantile Mall where we can fulfill Dad’s dreams!  

It’s Father’s Day from morning ’til night!

I thought this would be a fun time to share some mid twentieth century Father’s Day advertising and a few great old Father’s Day cards. It’s so much fun to go back and revisit these images.

Dogs love dad too!

Some might be quite questionable though. After all this was a time when folks were being told, through advertising, that smoking cigarettes was actually good for you! Yes, it’s true!


Yep, this is a real ad!

Anyway, enjoy these ads. Enjoy the cards. And we’ll see you at the mall. Heck, bring Dad in with you! It’s nice and cool in here … he’ll like it!
