It’s official. It’s been so long since we’ve blogged that I almost forgot our login and password. It’s no secret that with new social media outlets, blogging seems to have taken a little bit of a backseat for everyone.
Just because we haven’t been around this blog, it doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! Here’s a little re-cap of what we’ve been up to.
1) In May, we partnered with San Diego Magazine for an article on bookcase styling. We designed 3 different looks for one bookcase. We did a complete re-design of Betsy’s abode last year and her new bookcases were the perfect models.
2) At the end of June we tore apart the store and loaded up our front patio for our second annual Summer Yard Sale. We’re coming into market season where we buy all of our new product and our annual Yard Sale is our way of being able to make room for new product and extend some amazing deals to our fabulous customers! **Of course the day we were prepping for the sale was the day Diane Keaton walked into the store! I stood there in my grubby clothes, red pen in hand, store not at it’s cutest, and my jaw on the floor.
3) We’ve been busy with interior design clients and this month we started shooting projects for our portfolio (finally!) This is a much longer process than it sounds. A shoot usually starts the week before, collecting accessories to stage with. Accessories that look good in person, don’t always look good through a camera lens. For example, a pair of lamps that are the perfect size in person, may shrink and get lost in the photograph.
4) Betsy and I are prepping to leave for NYC tomorrow at midnight (not really but waking up at 4:00am might as well be midnight) to go to the New York Gift Show. Even though it’s a work trip – we have a blast every year (sometimes maybe a little too much fun ; )
