NEWS UPDATE - We opened a NEW SHOP

Well I have been crazy busy..... expanding & growing the business.
As you know I posted earlier that not only do I make soft sculpture art pieces me & my husband also do repurposing and dabble in all things antiques & vintage.
I have been wanting a place to setup shop and sell my items and we finally did it! 
 
 It took months of researching but we finally got a space in an antique mall co-op shop and got it all set up the other day....which is about an 1 1/2 hour drive from me...unfortunately there was absolutely nothing here in my local city that was comparable....too much "flea" if you know what I mean ;)
 
Anyway, I will eventually introduce my bears, dawgs & other soft sculpture there as well but wanted to get my other pieces out of my studio....all of this has been sitting in my studio and was to the point of not being able to move anymore.........gosh I finally have some space again!
 
The first thing I told my husband was that we need to make a HARWOOD FLOOR for my space.  I was not liking the ugly carpet and it was just so drab looking...I was going for the unique looking "industrial chic style" (modern) looking space.  So he made me a 'floor" from 2 pieces of heavyduty plywood and we stained it ebony....Love how it turned out and it was low cost for the "pop" factor I was looking for. 
 
And I am calling my new business space.....
ZOEY's UBER-CHIC LOFT
 
LOL....yup, inspired from my little boston Zoey....
 
Soooooooo if you are in the Rochester New York area.... please stop in and check out my space.....  here is a little ad I put together ....

Wow right down the 104 and I'm there!
I just have to cross the border at Lewiston, show my passport and head east...
Perfect drive for an Autumn day.

Have fun being the busiest person you know! I opened a shop in my home and now I don't have time to do my art..which was why I started the store! Hmmm It is lots of fun though but just don't stop the flow of bears and bunnies we all love to see! I wish you good luck but you won't need it, your stuff will fly out of there.
