The Rural Society Antique and Graden Show. Bluedoor/Then and Now News.

 We are getting ready for The Rural Society Antique and Garden Show a week from this weekend. This is a new show for us and we excited to be a part of the activities at Warwick Farm.
 Today I restocked Bluedoor here in Grand Rapids. As you can tell from this picture we have plenty of great wooden ladders these days. They seem to be very popular right now.
 We also found this really great metal industrial drawer cabinet, vintage wire and wood crate this week. We also sold our drawer cabinet removed from a school and put into our space a second cabinet that has more drawers than the previous cabinet.
Another of this weeks finds was this parts cabinet and vintage metal plant stand. We also have a number of vintage urns left from the garden sale so stop by and check out our space at Bluedoor and all the other great vendors that have product there.

We will also be making a trip us to Then and Now in Petoskey this weekend. We will be restocking our space with lets of great new product on Sunday. Stay tuned for pictures when we are done on Sunday.

Bluedoor Vintage Garden Show and a few other thoughts

Spring seems to be a long time coming this year. However, please join us next weekend for the very popular and famous Bluedoor Vintage Garden Show.  We are all hoping this will help spring get here a little sooner. All the dealers at Bluedoor pull out all the stops to help put on a show that helps celebrate vintage garden. There is usually a big turn out for this show so plan on stopping by to see all the great product we have been saving just for this show.

Also, stay tune for lots of information about new products we are working on as well as shows we will be doing this year. We will be exploring some new directions this year in our quest for working on interesting repuposed creative projects using vintage. We are also planning on doing a different show every two weeks this year. Some of the shows we are very excited about and look forward to sharing them with you. So stay tuned.

As always we will be at Bluedoor here in Grand Rapids and at Then and Now in Petoskey. We have some new ideas and thoughts about product we want to offer at those spaces so check us out over the next few weeks and months.

In the last few months we have also ramped up our Etsy site and have been very pleased with the results and response we have received for those of you that have supported us there.

So lots of exciting things happening for us and our business this year!
