Do you believe in destiny? That everything happens for a reason to get you where you are supposed to be at a certain time? Well, I do.
I do love the mall where I am right now, but I have been dreaming about being with a group of people that share similar interests and creativity. To be surrouded by those that I can draw inspiration from and feel that I can return the same. Then I received an email.....
Cheryl of Deep Creek Vintage is transforming a landmark mansion into a fabulous new multi-vendor antiques and more destination. She messaged me the other night, and that started a new sense of excitement with the business that I haven't felt in a while. Dean and I set up a time to visit with Cheryl at the manor to gather information so that I could think about what I may want to do....but once I walked in the door, I knew exactly what I needed to do. She showed us around the upstairs first, then we came back to the main floor. When we walked into Room #6, it literally took my breath away. The room was perfect! She left some exposed brick and studs, old hardwood floors and a FIREPLACE!!! Yes, I get a WHOLE room! Windows and all!
Our mantle is the one to the right...and it will have it's original overmantle reattached! The other mantle is located in the room across from us, and will be filled with fabulous items by Erica from Tattered Elegance. Her work is to die for! I'm all giddy just thinking about it!
Another view of our room. I'll have better pictures next week once I start filling it up.
Opening on June 22nd! There will be a grand opening at a later time, but don't wait until then! :)
I am so excited to be a part of this! Some may say it's risky, being a brand new venture and all, but it's a risk I am so willing to take!
