Had To "Man" The Shop Today While Mom Ran Around Town With The Sis And Aunt. Got A Start On A Project While There That I'll Soon Be Able To Share, But For Now Let's Take A Look At Mom-Tomic's Offerings! Status: Pretty Pretty.
"Well, Hi There! C'mon In!" We had lots of visitors this fine Saturday afternoon. Didn't sell anything but it's nice that we are getting that walk in traffic and people seem to like the shop. But of course! How could they not?
My mom's part of the shop is nothing like mine. Well, I mean...she still sells tables, chairs, sofas, other
furnishing and smalls...it's just a different style. Then again, looking around the shop I was surprised
today to find a number of smalls that I'd love to have tossed around in "my area"!
I'm sometimes taken aback at how little my mom will ask for some of these lovely items. Of course,
sometimes I'll drop off a couple of low priced items in my booth at The Green Shag to make sure I
have some bargains in there from time to time. It can't hurt to make sure a few lucky buyers feel like
they just scored once in a while!
She just brought back a bunch of "new" stuff from Atlanta a few weeks ago too, like this minty green
double chair with claw and ball feet. It ain't fancy but it ain't supposed to be...not like that beautiful
wood (liqueur?) cabiniet. Now that is a fine antique (maybe...what do I know?).
I believe the term these days for this style is "Cottage Chic". Since moving in here and being exposed to
more of this style I've been keeping a watchful eye out for this style on C-list. I've sent mom a number
of texts about this item or that and she's snatched up a couple of them. I'm starting to hone my skills in
this area too. Right now though, mom knows best.
So that's how the shop looked when I left today, but as I was leaving my mom, sister and aunt were
bringing in LOADS more new stuff! I don't know what all they'll find room for in here but you can bet
that we'll always have plenty more new stuff to check out each time you visit! I know I'm always getting
new items to get out there and I've got a garage full of stuff that I need to clean up and tag too! Oh, and
that project I mentioned...it involves re-covering the Selig / Larsen armchair. It's about half done and
looks marvelous. I'll be showing it off soon.
