The seashells have finally washed ashore throughout the store.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!
The following week is a big one at The Sofa. Opening night of the Prairie Village Art Show is this coming Friday which means pure craziness for us for one full weekend. We have been ordering and stock piling the goods getting ready for the hundreds of visitors that will be stopping in.

Hats Off

I designed these new Curious Sofa (summer) business cards above, bookmark size.
We will change these every season with a new yard-long photo.

Mid-May Greetings everyone!
It has been one wet Spring for Kansas City and if there is a dead plant anywhere to be found, it never had a chance to begin with! The rain has come down in some fashion nearly every single day for a month now so we are green to the core. Segue into all the new and funky hats we are offering for him and her to protect, adorn and flaunt. I have always said the best make-do accessory is a hat and a pair of sunglasses. Crawl out of bed on Sunday morning with those and no need to worry about who you'll run into at breakfast.
