Paper Love

Robin is always finding new and unusual items for the shop.  A favorite find are these fun and funky art papers.  They come in all sorts of designs from old maps to everything birds.   My favorite is the vintage postcard from India complete with  giant Indian elephant!  Our papers can be used for all kinds of decorating and crafting or simply to hang on the wall.  Each sheet is large, 20″x27″.  It’s such fun to let your imagination run wild with crafty and artful paper ideas.  We would love to hear yours!  Drop by for a visit!

690 Mile Garage Sale!

Yes you did read right 690 miles of treasure! Rick and I went all the way from Kentucky down to Tennessee shopping at the worlds longest garage sale. I made two trips in one week! While the American Pickers were shopping in Springfield, Rick and I were visiting their Nashville store. We are slowing unpacking inventory, getting it painted, and set up in our store. With back to school around the corner we are getting the shop ready for Fall. My favorite time of year!

Here are some of the new items coming in. Webster’s chalk paint powder. The great thing about this product is you can mix it with any latex paint and ta da you have chalk paint! I have been using it on a lot of furniture in the shop and it looks fantastic. Also we have some great waxing finishes for furniture. If you are interested in learning more about chalk paint come in and see me for a personal lesson.

We are now carrying about 200 bolts of ribbon from burlap to silk! Lots of new transfer ware in reds and blues. With the craze of Downton Abbey everyone is returning to the era of formal table settings. So come see our selection. We have one of the biggest silver plated collections in town for a timeless table setting.

We are baby crazy today too with our secretary Lesly having her beautiful little girl this afternoon! If you are looking for that perfect baby gift we are now carrying Aden and Anais swaddling blankets and will soon have a shipment of dream blankets coming in! If you are not familiar with this brand the new Royal Baby and Lesly’s baby are being swaddled in these.

And last but not least Halloween décor is coming in and our summer sale is still going on! Up to 50% off!
