What a Month!

Between the buildout of our expanded space (to be revealed in September), a few days of vintage treasure hunting with a trailer in tow, a couple days of scouting fresh finds at Dallas Market, and preparation for the upcoming Canton show, it's been one heckuva crazy busy month let me tell ya. 

So busy in fact that I completely missed that the blog passed 1 million page hits! 
Seriously, over 1 million hits?  How stinkin cool is that? :-))

Our online numbers have really been climbing over the past couple months, with over 11,000 FB likes (find us HERE) over 4,300 followers on Pinterest (find us HERE), and the hopping blog readership, all thanks to you!  You continually overwhelm me with your loyalty.
Another cool piece of information to share, we will be the retailer for Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint for our area!  The paint line is slated to be launched sometime in August. 

Not only will we be selling the paint at the Shoppe and online, we will also offer a variety of paint workshops.  We're blessed to have a professional faux painter and an artist as part of the crew.  Here are  Patty and Jann having a good time getting ready to paint faux barnwood walls in a section of the new expansion. 

They are both chomping at the bit to get going on the workshops....lots more information in the coming weeks on this! :-))
A quick FYI, I've recieved numerous inquiries about whether we will be open for the upcoming July and August shows because of the expansion construction and the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES.  
The only change for these next two summer shows is that one small section of the store will be inaccessible due to construction.  Other than that, the Shoppe will be unaffected, fully stocked, and open for business during our regular show hours. 

Lastly, for those of you that opt out of shopping in the triple digit Texas heat, no worries at all.  You need only step out of your air conditioned car and step right into our air conditioned Shoppe.  Gotta love that!
The fun all begins Thursday morning at 9am, we look forward to seeing you here!

Have a great week my friends!

I sadly do not live in the area and can not visit your store. I can however take a cyber tour by looking at the pictures of your store inside. I'm sure many of us would love to see your store but sadly don't live in the area.
