My latest Venture-"Not So Shabby"!

Over the years, many of you have encouraged me to open a store to sell my products, furniture and accessories.  I've never been ready or willing to take the risk, but recently after some prayer and consideration, I 'stumbled' across the opportunity to 'rent' a space in a new store downtown Zeeland called "Not So Shabby". 
 Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE living downtown Zeeland and am all about "Feeling the Zeel".  These past three years living downtown, I've been involved in various committees that have encouraged growth in our downtown district and we've have been thrilled to see 10 new stores in the past year move onto Main Street. This latest addition was a perfect fit for my business.The store is called "Not So Shabby".  It's owned by the same wonderful lady that owns "Mainstreet Sweets"-(a fabulously fun candy store).  There are 7  booths, (and vendors) in this store, all of which have a uniquely different flair. There is a good mix of cottage style furniture and accessories, fine furnishings, household items, handmade crafts, vintage clothing and jewelry and much more! 

I've had so much fun already and the doors haven't even opened!  I wanted to invite you personally to browse around and shop before our official "Grand Opening".  We are opening this Wednesday, May 19 at 10:00. Our Grand Opening will be scheduled for mid-June. More details to come.  
Please come support some local artisans in bringing you reasonably priced, one- of- a- kind items.  The store is located at 152 Mainstreet on the south side of the road, to the left of Mainstreet Sweets. 
Take a peek at the pictures below of some of the treasures you'll find there!! 

These are some photos of my space in the store. I am the second booth to the left as you walk in the front.  Please feel free to spread the word and pass on this news and blog to other fans of Room for Change!Remember, this is a place where a "little change goes a long way"!  Thanks for always encouraging me personally and professionally.  I'll keep you posted!!

Just taking a break from painting a piece for one of my clients to check my email...I'm thrilled for you and Not So Shabby, and will hopefully see you soon when I stop by to shop your awesome stuff! How will you keep your booth full??

Your blog is great! I can totally relate and also hope to get some good tips! Already planning to try out BM Ironclad Black Enamel.
