Grand Rapids Show





We had a great weekend doing a Grand Rapids show at the DeVos Center this weekend. We sold a bit of everything. Our repurposed theme seemed to touch a cord with many local people. I brought along a couple of repurpose pieces of furniture. A hall tree made out of an old commode and garage door and a buffet made out of window and old cabinet parts and pieces. Both sold on Sunday so I am greatly encourage to build more. Wine stoppers made out of vintage doorknobs, votive candles we decorated with vintage, lavender hearts, jewelry, floral fabric pins all did well in addition to our many other vintage finds.

Next week we will be back in Grayslake and look forward to seeing our many friends we have made there. However, we did enjoy this weekend being less than a mile from our show and being able to sleep in our own bed at night.

So sorry we are not coming to Grays Lake due to truck trouble. See you next month.

Hey guys! Glad to hear the show went well. Your stuff looks great. Will look forward to hearing more about it this weekend. People were asking for you at the Expo show -- we told them you'd be at Grayslake. Safe travels and looking forward to seeing you. Sorry to be slow in responding -- but we have appreciated your comments! xo

Hi CJ - I usually visit you at Allegan and last time bought your altered apple cider sign which is hanging in my mudroom. I love it!! Wondering if the "FLOWERS" sign sold at your last show. If it is still available I'd like more info, please! Your work is creative and inspiring! Thanks!

Sheilah,
We do still have the "FLOWER" sign, it is at Bluedoor here in Grand Rapids. Do you know where that is?
