I love my job...and there are many reasons why but the best reason is the lovely customers who come in and I get to hear their stories of what is going on in their lives. Last week Julie (who's last name has escaped me so early this morning) suprised me with a jar of apricot pineapple jam she had just made and had a cute story of how she acquired the apricots. I've heard of some of the most beautiful and vintage weddings going on this summer and some fabulous vacations.
In this picture you will see a 3 pieces set of antique bedroom lights I acquired at an estate sale in Roy Saturday. I have never seen the likes of them ever...arent they darling. Its the tall crystal glass ones, not MY cherub lamps. It fascinates me that the set is complete, working and in excellent condition. One is a reading light which hangs from the headboard. I think they will come into the shop today. Things like that are a little painful for me to part with, but I just have to. Thats another reason I love my shop, bringing things in I know customers will love.
Another reason is I get to display to my hearts content...today we are painting a big wall chocolate brown and adding off white furniture with the aqua and pink pastel merchandise. Hope we can get the big antique fireplace in okay...thanks to Mr. bed of roses! I'm putting him to work the next 2 days, painting, moving stuff, hanging and boxing up stuff... He works for food.
I will share pictures when this project is done.
I am thinking of keeping the shop opened all week...still not sure yet about the 24th of July though. There will be new shipments arriving each day...one happens to be our metal CROWNS and some crown & cupcake jewelry. MORE purses & styles are on their way...maybe by Friday and we will be in faux dessert heaven come next week. Come see, and pardon our dust while we get this shop ready for the holidays!
