My Shop Doors are Open
My shop is now open! I've added a batch of new, small-scale, affordable art and crafts that I'm delighted to share with you. And, because you make this online world a lovelier place, I'm offering an extra 10% off until April 15 with the code MAKEITLOVELY. Just enter this code at checkout and you'll get 10% off your entire order. Just a little something to say how much I appreciate you, your friendship, readership, ongoing support, and overall community. Yes, I do.
Someday I would like to have a brick and mortar shop. I imagine it would be full of handmade and vintage things and it would double as a small gallery and space for artists to commune. I imagine it would be full of pretty linens, ceramics, jewelry, accessories, artwork, trinkets, and treasures. A smattering of found oddities old and new. Oh, the things! An area for artwork to hang. A place for artists and art lovers to gather and engage. A place for poetry readings and craft workshops. Yes, these things.
I suppose there would be treats at the counter near an old metal register. Maybe muffins one day or cookies the next. Lemonade in the summer and mulled apple cider come fall. I'd have a work table behind the register so I could knit, or sew, or type when the visitors were sparse. I imagine a little patio out the back door with a wrought iron table and my grandmother's floral tablecloths. Fresh flowers spilling over the edges of water pitchers. Just enough sunshine, just enough shade.
For now, let's imagine a virtual bell jingles on a virtual glass door when you enter the doors of my virtual shop. Yes, for now, that will have to do.
