It’s been six weeks since our Grand Opening.
It’s been fun, and it’s been a learning experience. Such a nice feeling to be somewhat settled. Even though Karen and I spend a limited amount of time in the shop together, it’s really nice to share a creative space. We’ve shared a lot of laughs, and Mamita even joins Karen once every couple of weeks at the shop to help out.
Here’s an update:
We sold quite a few pieces of furniture in the shop in the first few weeks, including these…
We’ve been working hard in the studio to fill up the shop again. I just love this little area in our studio.
We also changed our window display and had our Christmas items out in the shop in time for Small Business Saturday. Actually, we even had it all out before Thanksgiving. We were a little anxious. 😉
Soon after we added the petite red cabinet in the window display, we sold it. We replaced it with this dainty gem:
We know many of you are decorating your Christmas trees this week, thus we have dozens of ornaments on sale in the shop. The pictures don’t do the ornaments justice. They are much prettier in person and much larger than they appear.
We’ve handled several custom orders since we opened and we are currently working on this one. Wait until you see the transformation! We love that our customers chose to go bold.
We recently placed an order for some new items, including canvas and leather totes and other unique home décor items.
We upcycled a handful of items including yard sticks, old windows and frames—all currently available in the shop.
We have been receiving many requests to purchase furniture, and although we occasionally buy a piece or two, it doesn’t happen very often. We have a storage area filled with inventory so we just don’t have room for much more, but if you have something you think we might be interested in, please send a picture and an asking price to my email: Kathy@thesalvagedboutique.com, and we’ll get back to you.
We also have a new little sign in our door. If it’s hanging in the door, you know we’re open. We joke it’s a playful mix of me and Karen…
Warm and welcoming and a little sassy. 😉
We’re open Tuesday to Thursday, 10am to 6pm; Friday & Saturday 10am to 4pm. We hope you can stop in during the holiday season!
