Hot August Greetings everyone!
Wow, I just realized it has been two months since I have written a blog post! I am only a little bit sorry because I have a good excuse; I have exchanged my blog writing for quick daily entries on the CuriousSofa.com Facebook page. I hope all of you are following me there as I feel it is more effective, less time consuming and you can look or not without having to search out this blog.
Now with that said, I still wanted to share some pictures of antique, vintage and one-of-a-kind items I have available online. My days are still spent hunting for new goods, fixing, cleaning, shooting pictures and loading them to the website. I am also enjoying my little booth at Lone Elm Antique Mall here in Kansas City which many of you have made the pilgrimage to (thanks for that!).
As always, my new finds appear online first so I can be fair to all my customers across the U.S. then the items that are overstocked or ready to put on sale are taken to Lone Elm for the locals to enjoy.
Next month I will be dressing the entrance of Lone Elm for Halloween- but be warned! it will be a much smaller scale than you have been used to seeing from me in the past but there will still be some great merchandise (old and new) for sale there and online as well as some good decorating ideas.
Now let me show you some items for sale from the online store that I just loved finding for you:
(All the links are not working so please go to the website to shop!)
