The store and barn are cute and cozy, but it's the spacious warehouse that houses the hoarded collection of architectural artifacts. This summer we'll have some weekend open houses at the warehouse. Anything in particular on your wish list?
January is our month of hibernation. Well, not really. It's a slow month for foot traffic so we use this time to shut down the shop and soul search. What did we learn in 2018 and what's going to be hot in 2019? Then we use our hunches to hunt and gather, which is really, absolutely, our most favorite part of the job. Who doesn't like to shop? It's not a hunt at fancy places though. It's a hunt through basements, attics, auctions and a few places that will remain our secret troves. Stay tuned!
