I've been able to collect some pretty great pieces since the start of this endeavor, though mostly clothes. I'm trying to make it a point to also collect accessories and other things you might find in my imaginary cabin. The picture above is actually of one of my super exciting finds: A set of 5 cups and saucers in the "Pendleton" print by the Iroquois China company from Syracuse, NY... from 1922. For being almost 100 years old, they're in really really great condition and I'm so excited to have these hit the shop... once said shop is open :)
I'm also working on handmade inventory as well. This is fun in its own right, though also a little more demanding and time consuming. This is where I get my chance to be totally hands on and have direct influence on what I want in the shop. There is also a gratification that one gets from making something with their own two hands- having an idea become something tangible that you can actually hold and use. Super dorky and cheesy, but also wonderful at the same time.
So very excited for things to be coming together!
