A 2 Year Anniversary!

Two years ago, on a whim I signed a lease and moved into Heritage Square Antique Mall, in Columbus, Ohio.

My space 044

My business approach was simple: make enough to cover my costs.

Not very business savvy if you ask me, but I just wanted to cover my expenses so I could go get more goodies!

On day one I reached my goal and have been off and running.

There have been some hits:

Some misses:

And some changes along the way:

Then we opened another space within Heritage Square Antique Mall.

Followed that up with a place in Delaware.

Along the way, I amped up the custom painting side of the biz.

I cannot imagine the total number of pieces I have painted. Hundreds!

It has been a wonderful journey.  I am excited and open to what lies ahead.  Whatever it may be.

One thing I know for sure, I have furniture to paint!

Thanks for sticking with me as I try new things, experiment with locations, paint colors and furniture styles.
