Sonya has been busy creating pretty little things and I am always busy collecting precious little do-dahs for the store. We love the mail room cupboard for displaying all the salt and pepper sets and odds and ends. It would be great in a kid's room for all of their collections, in the kitchen for storage , in the craft room for some order or in the office for all the mail! What do you want to do with it? It is just the right chippy blue/grey/white metal that would go well in the modern home or in the vintage spot. Come check it out. We are still open Saturdays but are frequently open on Fridays too. We always put the signs out when we are in.
We had a fun trip up to Seattle with so many stops along the way. We started out at 8 am thinking that would be plenty of time to play along the way. We did a little garage sale and thrift store shopping with a fun side trip to Fun Junk in Olympia. Boy, did we have a ball there! Just our kind of "junk" with all the boxes of fun stuff. Nancy was nice enough to let us wander into her backroom and bask in all of the fun stuff back there too. We think we'll make some baskets of "fun junk" for you to dig through at Vintage Station and hope you have as much fun as we did digging through Nancy's.
Sonya and I love the thrill of the hunt. It is like a big treasure hunt with the world as the map. Next weekend we are going to the gift show in Seattle. It is one of our little vacations where we shop on the way to a shopping trip. The best of both worlds....shopping on the way to shopping! These are pictures of some of the little goodies in the shop right now.
The store is about to bust out!! I say more is never enough and Sonya says, "Enough already!!" We have garden, kitchen, bedroom, baby, ephemera, books, cute crafty stuff and stuff for making your own cute crafty stuff. I love ephemera and books but don't have the time to make the cute stuff that I see so you are welcome to come and browse. We try to keep the prices very reasonable so that we can keep buying and you can keep crafting. Come see the paper crafts Sonya has created and get inspired! Also, we are going to the Barnhouse sale on Saturday (early so we can be back to open the shop on time) and get some inspiration ourselves! Maybe we'll see you there if you get up early? We plan on leaving some of our flyers there so you can find your way to our shop.
We got a shop pet...a beautiful beta named Fred. We forgot to take a photo of him but keep posted and he'll get his picture in eventually. The shop was fun today. We finished all of our signs...on top of the building, on the mall's post, and two more for the windows. Everyone who came in was amazed and could hardly wait to tell their friends. We were very busy putzing around and only had time for MacDonald's breakfast on the run. My daughter, Crissy, son-in-law, and baby Marlowe came out to see the progress and were impressed too. Melissa from Sweet Cakes made Marlowe's first birthday cake...a cowboy-robot-monkey themed cake. It is perfect! And Marlowe had a chicken dinner at Inca too.
