Just a peek!

I debated on sharing this photo....mainly because I know some of my loyal customers are looking for particular pieces and I might have aquired a few recently. I now need to get a better schedule to where I can work on pieces more efficently. I don't think I've shared much personal insight on here. I try very hard to keep personal and business seperate but when I am so passionate about creating this furniture/decor, it's hard not to get a little personal. Hubby and I have been in 'talks' about finding a new home that can accomodate our workshop. Currently we work out of our modest ranch home with the attached garage (I'm sure back 'in the day' it held TWO vehicles easily but vehicles today are not as narrow! lol). We are in search of a country home that possibly already has a pole building (workshop) on the property. It's an exhaustingly slow process as we must get our 'ducks in a row'. At the same time it's exciting to think what the future will hold. Recently we seen a home with a couple HUGE outbuildings and I begain to dream of wonderful BARN SALES and organizing our workshop to where we can speed up our productivity. Of course only time will tell. Until then, we are working bit by bit to add items to our shop. It's already the fifth month of the year and I was hoping my shop was in a better state of 'constant available merchandise'. I'm trying not to beat myself up too much but I can't help but stress a little over not having a full shop....daily. Other fun news, I have been scoring fun vintage items to mix in with the refurbished decor pieces....check out some Holly Hobby. Love.

Exciting stuff going on...

I am a proud member of our Downtown Auburn Business Assocation. This group brainstorms and supports each other to make our town stand out! Things are hopping this year with some fresh new shops and extra enthusiasm. We have several events going on among the already sought after yearly happenings. I will share here as they come along for all the locals who want to partake. Tomorrow evening I will be setting up at the NATMUS Museum here in town among many other unique businesses. Looking forward to more networking and gaining new customers (FRIENDS)!
Our town is known for their Vintage Cars with Crusine In's and Auto Auctions (VIEW THE ASSOCIATION'S WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION) that are held yearly we welcome thousands (if not over a million) of out of towners. Looking forward to sharing more with you in the coming months!

Few things in shop this week....
