DECORATING 2017 & SALE DATES

Why do I have sporadic Sales & why I don't have shop hours?
Answer: If I had a 9-5 shop, then who would make & paint all the goods that I offer? I very seldom buy all ready made items from another venue. I like that when a person shops here, they can pretty much get a unique one of a kind piece that they won"t see at their friends house.

why am I so cheap?
answer: I like my "peeps" to be able to buy more than one item & feel like they got their moneys worth & are able to decorate a room for under $100 & get a bigger bang for their buck. I like that I have repeat customers that luv my re purpose style, whether it be cottage or antiques and when they buy more at an affordable price I can rebuild my inventory & have "fresh" junque for the next sale.

Will I be having more sales in 2017?
answer: yes, I am going to try to have "pop up" sales at times, they may be last minute, but the goods will be just as great :)

What are the new styles & colors for the new year?
Answer:  so excited about the new colors being the colors I've been using......more grey is in my future & different shades of green & aqua and apple green, where have you been? I've been using this color for years!! also burgundy, blues, browns.
DECORATING STYLES FOR 2017:


indoor plants

wallpaper

copper

wood tile

acrylic

farmhouse style.....still in

more color

quirky lighting

beach design whether you live near the beach or not




     I would like to point out my selling policy: There are no saves on items and no assurance that it will be here when you get here. Pieces are sold on a first come first served basis! I can't in all fairness, hold something when you can't pick up for a week, when someone comes the next day & wants said item. I apologize for this "rule", but I guess that's why I'm the CEO of me ;)
     I post my weekend finds on my facebook page (click here ) & most are for sale, some I keep for myself but are eventually for sale at a later date, (I need to decorate to).
    I buy what I like & like what I buy, so I have the same passion as you about certain items that are "keepers". I need props to store stuff on & in. Most is for sale, so there is plenty to choose from......I luv my peeps that understand my quirky policy :)
   When I "fluff" up my home, that is the time to come to my sale March & June with June being the "BIG SALE" the whole town can participate as it is the annual town sales, this year: June 10th at 9am - ??? TENTATIVE SALE DATE FOR MARCH IS EITHER THE 18TH OR 25TH DEPENDING ON WEATHER......THE BUILDINGS ARE GETTING FULL FAST!!!!
