We Love Loyal Customers – Like Bill (handsome Golden Retriever)!

At Keys to the Attic, we love all of our customers – with 2 legs or 4 legs (more legs and we get a little scared).  We keep a dog treat machine in front of the store for our furry friends when they are out for their walk.

Meet Bill.  According to his owners, this handsome Golden Retriever knows (and leads them to) Keys to the Attic the minute they hit East Girard Avenue.  And we love seeing him!

Americana Candles Back in Stock – New Flavors!!

Americana Candles ~

Please Note:  We will ship.  Just contact us at: or 267.324.3681.

Our Americana Candles are back in stock (I promise we will know how to order better for next year) and we have added a delicious new flavor to the mix – Vanilla Bean.  The really neat thing about this particular Vanilla Bean candle is that it is covered in a light layer of mica, so when it burns the candle actually glows!

In addition, we now have the following in stock:  Jingle Bells, Evergreen Citrus and Homestead.

Jingle Bells, Evergreen Citrus, Vanilla Bean, Homestead

We LOVE these candles because they are made with 100% natural products and have a burn life of approximately 155 hours.  They burn down the middle, so when they’re done, we put them in a plastic bag and bag the candle with a hammer.  They break into shards and pieces which we then burn in tart burners – it’s like the never-ending candle.

In addition to the holidays, these candles are great for house warming and hostess gifts.

On Another Note … Cocktails Anyone??

We have 3 gorgeous sets of Mikasa stemware:  Set of 4 martini glasses, set of 4 pilsner glasses, and set of 6 cordial glasses.  These would make lovely holiday gifts or would be the perfect addition to your own festive table. (Boxes are included for each set.)  Contact us for questions or pricing:

Love Philadelphia?

We have several OUTSTANDING pictures reflecting different areas of our beloved Philadelphia.  Check them out.  Contact us at:  or 267.324.3681  for pricing.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving – Vintage Urinal!

Believe it or not, I cannot keep these things in stock.  Yes, vintage enamelware urinals!!  But, I can understand why … they have soooo many functions.  Let’s talk a look.

First, the urinal can be used as a … urinal.  You know those nights when you go out and have a little too much to drink and then you’re on your way home and you MUST pee?  Well, the beauty of this urinal is its size.  Only 10″ long, it will fit into any fashionable handbag or your glove compartment.

Second, urinals make lovely planters (see below).  I can also picture gorgeous, easy to take care of succulents dripping out of this fine urinal.

Third, a urinal can make a very interesting carafe.  Imagine the the delight (or disgust) of your friends and family when you pour fine wine (or beverage of your choice) during those always warm and fuzzy holiday meals.

Yes, this is a gift that will keep on giving.  Multi-functional, easy to use, and it will stand the test of time – it has so far.  Enjoy!!
