If you’re expecting holiday guests and need to give your home a little face lift before the hordes descend, visit Elburne. The Cape Cod shop launches a new pop-up at Dedham’s Legacy Place with local and ethically sourced home décor, plus an ongoing roster of “Meet the Artists” events through January.
Browse reclaimed wood furniture and tableware, organic and hand-woven cotton throw pillows, recycled glass vases, fair-trade baskets, and wall art by local artists like Cape Cod’s Kathleen O’Brien-Horne, known for her sandbar paintings. Reclaimed handmade furniture is made from salvaged wood from Brazil, and each one is unique. They also sell Salty Cottage pillows, made in Beverly, with nautical and canine themes — the perfect gift for a hard-to-please auntie or long-lost pal. The pop-up launches on Nov. 15 and closes on Jan. 15.
