Can’t replace it? Paint it!!

Don’t you just love home improvement shows? I do, I am a sucker for makeover shows!

However, once you are actually living in a fixer upper and doing the work yourself.. you quickly learn that your reality might look a little different than your favorite reality shows.. right!? :)

We had a such a blast this last weekend at Phoenix Flea… one of our all time favorite Arizona’s Markets!! This market will always have a special place in our hearts as it was the the very first market that we launched our little biz!

It has been incredible to see this market grow and expand! We have been so encouraged by the support of the community!

Thanks for shopping local and supporting small businesses!! We are super thankful for those of you who shopped our booth! We absolutely love seeing return shoppers & love meeting new ones!
