This was a sneak attack photo taken by Justin
during a shopping surge in our store in Boston yesterday.
It really gives the feel of how the day went~
hundreds of people came through our doors,
we had our best weekend yet!
like a neat store~not because of the Chalk Paint. Once they get in side some are very interested to know what the paint is about, but most are buying up the home decor items and furniture! Its been a fabulous experience thus far.
We decorated a little bit on the white side~
mixing in gold and silver with rustic touches.
Its a look that is very appealing to me as I am not keen
on decorating with traditional orange and burgundy for fall.
I got these garlands at TJMaxx n more if you want this look~
Justin painted our pumpkins big and small
with Old White Chalk Paint and I love the simple elegant
look that the pumpkin takes on when you can just admire it's shape.
We mix them up on the floor with potted heather and mums~
See the table in the foreground? Its the infamous Speert table,
painted by none other than Betsy Speert!
It sold too~woo hoo! Betsy was thrilled to hear it.
You can see a peek of it on the floor right
as you walk through the door.
It had been in the window for the first two weeks,
as soon as it hit the floor it sold in 24 hours!
It as a beautiful September weekend~
the crowds were out in force. We keep a little teaser
table in bright Antibes green on the sidewalk.
Justin overheard two girls talking as they left our shop
and one said, "I'm obsessed with this store".
We have been getting told all the time by so many shoppers
how they love everything in the shop and how great it is!
We keep a wish list sign up sheet for them to add anything
they would like us to hunt down for them~and we have
quite a list so far!
Many love the wings, and we sold 4 pair on Sunday!
We sold the mirror too~
One thing I try to hunt down are old mirrors.
I just love the look of a great old mirror~
this one is my Malden shop, but I bet if it goes to
Boston it won't make it through the weekend!
Every Sunday I hope to be in Boston as the energy
is completely fun and exciting! You never know what is about
to happen next~a big sale or someone famous or familiar walks
through our doors.
We got a surprise pop in visit from the Dirty Girls!
Caroline and Bridget are junkers and rehabbers
of vintage furniture in New Hampshire.
My son Brandon and Mimi popped in to say as well
on their way to the Vintage SOWA market right next doors~
look at the crowds that pass by our doors!! Its fantastic!
We sold quite a bit of furniture this weekend~
sometimes we arrange for delivery.
Look how cute this street is in the middle of Boston!One of our pieces is going to live on this street now...
Its the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint console~
Justin carried it in for them~
we really feel like we are part of the neighborhood
when we get to do this end of the transaction.
This morning an editor for Design New England walked in and is interested in doing something on us~we also had another magazine editor come in and wants to feature our Chalk Paint workshops!!
I am thrilled with the reception of our concept in the Boston neighborhood we now call home. Its really been great!
