Tales of this Shopkeeper - Introducing........"The Not So Shabby Shop"

Sometimes Thursday "junkin'" days turn into visiting days.  Today was one of those days.  Laura Buoni is a new friend of mine.  I first met her in the shop and then got to know her better when she and her son, Josh, took one of our Chalk Paint Decorative Finishes workshop.  At that time she was in the process of putting things together to open her own business.  Well, she did it and today I went up to see her shop and chat with her.  What a fun experience!
And so, with no further ado......."The Not So Shabby Shop" opened just six days ago in Hilliard, Ohio at
3872 Lattimer....
There it is....I can't wait to go in!
Immediately, I get a good impression. Beautifully painted furniture in tasteful colors and creative designs.
The light blue dresser above is one I wanted to take home with me....

Laura and her sons enjoy Chalk Paint(TM) and use it in many different ways...

Very well done!

Not just shabby but yes, some shabby:)

This is Laura and I so enjoyed seeing her new place and chatting for awhile.  The best to you, Laura!  You will do well!
