The Big Reveal

What can a couple gallons of paint, a sore back & some DIY sweat equity give you?

Well, not a completed project, but a new look for sure!

Enjoy the pics, such as they are on this snowy & rainy day (which didn't make for good lighting).

View from the front entrance

Proud to be our county's only source of hand embroidery supplies. An art not to be lost!

Polka Dots, Calico's and Gingham (oh, my!)

Batiks, solids, and homespun

Our stash builder wall! Each only $4.00 per yard

Children's themes and collections, and a bit of the notions wall too

View from the back of the store looking to the front.

If you noticed the floor, yes, they are really dress patterns & newspapers. The papers date from 1908, 1922, and 1932. I put them down one at a time with wallpaper paste & when dry used polyuerethene to seal it. That project was NOT done this week, but last year....I'm not that DIY crazy to not sleep!
