What’s that you ask? It’s our new shop name minus the city and state of course, Eclectic Shoppe. We are so excited to be working on a brick and mortar place, a labor of love and passion.
This is the banner on our Facebook Page.
The shop should come to fruition sometime at the beginning of April. Due to my constant indecisiveness, we are now forced to push back our grand opening. That’s ok though, a well thought out plan sometimes has wrinkles, right? Ha!
Eclectic Shoppe will feature Art, vintage and modern decor, accessories, and gifts (gifts are due in early summer). We’ve signed with artist of different genres and medias. From canvas, wood, re-cycled & up-cycled goods, to vintage and modern decor pieces. The beauty of our shop, is that all the vintage and modern decor pieces are hand selected by Alex and I. We want to mix the media up, mix and mingle pieces together. Not necessarily to match, but to show what the possibilities could be. This is such an exciting time for us and it is wonderful to work with my daughters on such a project.
The first thing I want to share are the floors.
The floors are done and they have turned out beautifully. The original floors had carpet and while it looked great, I wanted to uncover and restore the beautiful flooring underneath. Do you like wood floors or rugs? I think a few area rugs might work out really well in this space. What do you think?
There was old tile work in this section. We’ve had a local company remove that tile and now we are waiting on, “me”, of course, because I have not picked out the tile. 🙂
This is what the floors looked like before the re-finishing started.
This is after all the glue has been removed and the floors have been sanded. We could see the promise of beauty to come.
Oh what a smell that was, but just look at the beauty that was uncovered. A diamond in the rough… I’m in love with my floor.
At this time we are accepting new artisan work. Inquiries should be emailed to 42Eclectic@gmail.com . Thank you.
