After pushing and shoving and trying every possible way to get this darling wood table this trunk, we finally realized the legs came off! DAAAA!!! Needless to say, this "BRIDE TO BE"was one happy customer!
PUMKINS and MUMS GALORE!!
Four bars stool and a dresser. Both are here at the shop. The bar stools are only $75.00 for all 4 and the dresser is only $125.00. Sweet deals!!
This adorable set sold for $50.00. Now that was a deal. The customer loved it but did not like the red color so they painted it black. I love it!!!
Sue and Lewis arrived bright and early with a smile and a truck load of the coolest stuff. All shabby chic and cottage decor. Their prices were something to write home about for sure. As you can well imagine, at the end of the day they left with an even bigger smile and an empty truck!
Ashley did a fine job in redoing what was once an ugly bed and chest. She painted it this cool aqua color and distressed and antiqued it. It is beautiful and still waiting for the right customer to purchase it. Don't wait to long, because there seems to be interest from several customers right now.
