The first Open House of the Season






It has been so long since I have posted. Not really sure why. When I can't have the shop open I just kind of let Retro go into a long winters nap I guess. I wanted to share some peaks into my first open house of the season. I have been working on it when ever I am not at work and am really happy with how it is coming together. I stained the front room floor a pretty Robin's Egg Blue. You can see a peak of it a couple of these shots. Lots of moving of furniture is happening too. I love what that does to the look and energy of a space don't you?

I am having the first open house this month to correspond with Mineral Point's Garage Sale Weekend. Lots of the businesses will be having specials and there are always plenty great goodies at all of the separate homes.

I will be featuring Spring in the Garden looks and the big room will be filled with the feel of Paris. If Mother Nature cooperates the garden should be in first bloom so come relax, shop all the pretties, and take in the beauty that is Spring in Mineral Point.

I will be open Friday the 17 and Saturday the 18 from 9-4 both days. Watch for my newsletter coming soon. See you all in a couple of weeks. And as usual for any of you that can't make it to the open house anything you might want I can ship to you. Just pop me a note.

I love your chippy paint chairs and the hutch. Should you be overflowing and in need of space, by all means you can send them to me. Lovely photos.
