Monday 2/11/08 First of all we want to thank Jennifer Grey from The Old Painted Cottage for the encouragment to create a blog...thank you Jennifer..it only took 6 months!
Long story short, we are 3 women, through the love and appreciation of everything old, opened a boutique in Yakima, WA (approx 150 miles east of Seattle). Our goal is to provide our customers with unusual treasures for their homes, a comfy 'come-as-you-are' atmosphere and the inspiration to be different.
We love pieces of architecture, ironstone(chips are ok), old paper, chippy painted furniture, tarnished silver, linen, slipcovers and anything that 'feels' of history. In other words, others peoples trash! Road trips, lattes, gummybears and beef jerky (power food).
This is a photo of our most recent road trip, these were treasures found in a barn (isn't that everyones dream!) that an old dealer gave us directions to, to pilfer as we wished.
