reclaimed ~ repurposed ~ salvaged collections


April 23, 2013


We had another great OPEN weekend and have so enjoyed all of our chats with you.  Here are a couple of fun pics...
YES! WE DELIVER....and when we don't have the truck, we walk it.
Good thing this cute table and chair set sold in the neighborhood!

SPECIAL THANKS! to Jean from Serendipi-TEA for the delicious muffins & scones.  This lovely duo stopped by after their visit to the tea shoppe to celebrate a 10th birthday.  What a wonderful celebration idea.
You made our day!   
Using a paper bag and some paint color samples, I was testing vinyl lettering fonts.  Because this phrase speaks to what we try to create in our shop and because it turned out kind of cute, it was framed and hung up high on the wall.  

The plan was to give it to the customer that asked about it and TA DA, Lynn spied it and asked if it was FOR SALE. She took it home with our compliments.  What fun!        anita

We just LOVE your new location!  It's perfect and we look forward to many weekends walking down memory lane and coming up with new ideas to create in our own home with your items!  Thank you as well for locating next to so many great restaurants and other business we love to frequent.  Congrats!   Bonny & Sharon
Awwwww....THANK YOU for the kind words.  We so appreciate all of the comments and emails we receive.  Please continue to keep in touch!

MAY 17 ~ 18 ~ 19
April showers (and SNOW!!!) bring May flowers....  Look forward to a wonderful array of BIRDS & BLOOMS, BLUE hues, FLORAL everything and our usual great furniture finds and repurposed collections.
