My basemnt is filled with paint, wax, furniture, glassware and vintage decor. My 3 car garage can hold only one car! Old Grey has to sit out in the cold and shiver! I think my business needs its own home!
This is short and sweet today. But if you had your druthers, what part of town would I have my store to make it accessible and interesting for all my customers? Your ideas please.
Valley Junction -- the old West Des Moines historical area with lots of antique stores?
Beaverdale -- also a cute and charming neighborhood
East Village -- the new and trendy part of the city?
Ingersoll-Grand Avenue corridor?
Of course, while your input is important and will earn you another slip into my fishbowl for the giveaway....lots depends on timing, space and cost.
Here is what we will carry at TLC Vintage when it finds a new home....
All Annie Sloan products -- paint, wax, brushes, fabric, room fragrances, books and more as they roll out!
Gifts -- most likely by Iowa artists
Also unfinished finds -- called "Treasures in Waiting" so you can pick out a piece of furniture and buy it if you can get to it before I do!
I would hope to contiue with a case of paint and products at the Brass Armadillo since they are open 9-9 7 days a week and so accessible from the freeway.
Send me your ideas!
