It's Official!



I am so excited!
We get possession the first of Oct.
I'm I crazy or what?
Open a shop when things seem to be a little off with the economy? 
And opportunity came my way and I decided to jump on it!
The building was a Bank and it's very small,
but I think it will work fine for me and my daughter!
Sarah is going to be joining me in this adventure.
I've been pretty burned out with the shows for awhile now.
We've been keeping the roads hot for 11 years and I'm ready to put down some roots.
I can't wait to get the building and do some painting inside.



I love it!
Your gonna be seeing many,
many pictures of this place from now on!


I decided to downsize my space at the mall since I was opening my own shop!
I have a very small 5x10 space, but I think it turned out pretty cute!
What is it about that junk that make my heart jump?
I love this business, although it is very tough at times.
When I was trying to decide on the shop someone said to me,
"sell what you love and they will come".
I think this is very true!
I plan on having some dark wood, industrial and a few white things at the  shop.





Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations!! What town is the shop in? I am in DFW area and would love to come see it! I love your style and it is amazing how large you made a 5 by 10 look!!! I love the old bank building with the benches out front, the addition of dark woods and industrial along with the shabby chic will hit all markets and some of us love all three!! I have a mixture in my home I could never go all white... Good luck!!!

oldgreymare said...

Photos! Yeah! I was trying to picture the store front when we talked, but now I have a visual when you talk about the shop.
If I could, I would be first in line the day you opened and I'd be leading the cheer "Open Open Open!"
I am thrilled for you. I know it will be amazing! Look what you already do with a mere 5x10.

You are going to be so busy but please remember that bunches of us are waiting to see the process as you proceed. Please let us tag along on your adventure..In other words...photos please :D

Congratulations again girlfriend!
