Our ten thousand dollar wall and Industrial Chic stock

 The ten thousand dollar wall~
That is what Picker Paul called it after he and Justin and I spent time
rearranging the store in Boston yesterday.
I didn't add it up, but I think he might be right!
I think it looks like a ten thousand dollar wall for sure~
we moved our beautiful antique Mora clock to the left 
and placed the Brittany armoire in the center and flanked it 
with the trendy wall banners that are affordable and fun works of art.
The newest addition to MD Boston is our 
gorgeous antique grain sack chair.
 We collaborated on our layout and got the store looking
quite marvelous~it had been getting all clustered up and claustrophobic
as it is so small, and when things sell and other things get pushed around
with out time to think~well it can feel uncomfortable.
So Justin and I planned to meet to merchandise the store
and we got Paul to join us to help with the moving of the large items.
 I snapped away while during some of our before moments...
Paul is holding our junky and dangerous 6 foot ladder...
 Here Justin risks life and limb to hang a wire chandy 
from an exposed pipe at ceiling height 
while Paul steadies the ladder and J.
 Another acrobatic moment~
he was way up there hanging a sign in the window~
 We want to hang this OPEN flag so walkers will notice our store~
waiting on landlord approval.  Since our store has closed doors we think
lots of people don't realize we are OPEN for business. 
With the cold weather coming this is going to be the 
way it is all the time~so we need that flag!
 So anyway, back to our inventory~the newest item is the chair that
 you might have seen on Betsy's blog. She did an amazing job~
the best ever! It is all redone and so elegantly too, 
I am proud to have it in the shop, and I think it might 
already be SOLD~I wish it could stay longer! 
And after all that hard work I doubt I will ever see another anytime soon.
 How about this French Market Basket? Its one of my favorite things!
Authentic and vintage and in excellent shape, you won't find one
on eBay~but you will at Maison Decor Boston!
 An incredible tool chest trunk will be making its way to Boston soon as well~
The interior has sliding storage compartments that used to hold a carpenters wares.
Now you can hide the cheetos and the remote in here if you use it as a coffee table.
 Today I scored a batch of industrial and rustic items~
so I have created a new category online for just those kinds of things...
One of the items was this 9' tall wooden ladder with the fat round rungs.
 We could have used it the day before when this kind of stuff was going on~
So here was the stash~I was invited to go through the 
basement of the old brick railhouse
restaurant across the street. 
The owner collects antiques and was letting a lot of his stuff go!

 Wonderful batch of crates~
 We will use them for Chalk Paint storage in Boston until they sell out~
 A commercial grade stainless steel pot rack that is just enormous!
 Old galvanized Beer Buckets~
I can see planting small Christmas trees in these babies.
 A great looking rustic bench, an old metal sign...they will head for the Boston store.
Paul was quite pleased about the collection! 
What a ham! 
Where is our HGTV film crew I ask???
I hope you can check out our Boston store at 524 Harrison Ave. 
This is an iPhone panorama shot.
 Its a tiny treasure packed shop~
so take your time and look around...
and if you don't see what you want, 
add it to our wish list.
We have fulfilled many wishes already!
