“I need a storefront.”
“I really need a storefront.”
“Oh, how I wish I had a storefront.”
I informed. I declared. I sighed. I dreamed. I prayed.
And one day I received a text from a friend. Would I be at all interested in putting things in her storefront? Well hmmmmm, let’s see, how fast can I type ‘YES’??? And the best part? She didn’t even know I was pining away for a storefront 😀 A God-thing?!! We are going to give it a try and see where this journey takes us!
And so a new venture has begun. I’ve been a bit slow at getting things all over there but Emma has helped me a couple times and we are slowly getting things arranged and fluffed. The store is called Smiths Merchants – Vintage and Antiques. We have a facebook page and we would love it if you would go over and give us a like!
I”ve styled the windows with my stuff and stuff my friend, Angie, had there. She loves authentic antiques – the real deal! So anything of hers is truly old and antique and valuable. I have vintage, handmade, and painted furniture. I think it all mixes together very well and it’s been fun working with displays. I still have things to take and lots to do and lots of ideas – it will all come together eventually!
The fabric cutting counter is original I think. It’s so awesome – I want one like it in my sewing space someday – when I have a bigger space.
So much potential – so much fun! I plan to get over again this week and work some more. Hopefully my daughter can go too cause she is great help. She’s very good at arranging things and creating displays.
We hope to put together an event/open house sometime soon – perhaps for fall or Christmas. I’ll be sharing of course!
If you live close I’d love for you to come check it out sometime! And I’ll keep you updated on the changes and new displays.
The store also has a restaurant in one section – it’s so beautifully done. I planned to share the pics of it in this post but it got too late. So I’ll share them in another post and I will do everything in my power to make it happen this week!
