I started this blog over 2 years ago. My initial hope was that it would be a creative outlet, give me a place to seek out amazing finds and showcase all the lovely things out there. My secondary hope was I could use my knowledge, learn a thing or two along the way & open up a retail shop....well November 30th, the shop opened! My blog has been quite neglected but my head is filled with so much to share, so I will be posting more in the weeks to come.
First though, here is the beginning of our (my Mom, Paulette & I) shop. Stumble & Relish, located in Evanston, Illinois (1310 A Chicago Ave, Evanston, IL 60201).
Look at the end product! Wow, how far we've come in 7 weeks! We worked to decorate inexpensively but we wanted there to be some character to our pieces- we have a display cabinet that is probably from the 20's mixed with an IKEA rug and back-dropped by our bold paint & simple stencil. Needless to say we like to mix it up & in the end we made it work. The shop will always be a work in progress, the product we sell will be the stars & we will do the best to tell the stories of each piece we find.
Stop by & stumble on something lovely today...
