In their own words
Please describe your visual merchandising scheme.
We have an eclectic style in our shoppe. The goal is to make it feel like there is a style of furniture for everyone. We typically obtain farm styled furniture, Italian or French provincial, and ’60s modern (midcentury modern). Alongside the furniture, the rest of our home decor consists of farm-styled pieces.”
What sets you apart from others in your market?
Our unique touch is that we can paint furniture that people already own. We often have people who need a cheaper flip so instead of a new purchase for their home they will pay us to redo something they already own. We offer pickup and delivery. In addition, we offer classes on how to flip their own furniture. We have a few furniture painting classes and some smaller DIY projects for people.”
