shelves ~

Mick sent me a picture last week of some really cool shelves that he thought would be a good addition to the shop.  When I saw the picture, I just about fell off my chair!  


EEEK!!!!

Not only were they huge and PERFECT for display in the shop, they offered me tons of extra storage.  And they came from a local university, so rescuing them from the dump was an additional bonus.

The boys picked them up on Saturday and wrestled them into the shop that evening.  And then me and my razor blade got busy scraping what seemed like a thousand stickers from the drawers.  I am an unusually impatient person, so I think I was running on pure adrenaline as I just scraped and scraped and never took a break.  


The labels said things like "embryos" and "medical slides" so the shelves obviously came from the Science department.

But now they are filled with all sorts of shabby lovelies for the home!


A whole new lease on life for them!  

I am so incredibly thankful for my husband and his friend Jeff who managed to get these moved into the shop for me.  They look like they belonged here!

Fall and Halloween at Georgie's ~

Hello everyone!  I feel so absent from the blog for so long.  So sorry, but it seems that I hop on Facebook and Instagram more often than the blog these days.  We'd love for you to come see us on those media outlets too!  :-)

In the meantime, here's what we've busy doing the past several weeks, whipping the shop into tip-top shape for Fall and Halloween!  So fun!  I looooove this time of year when the weather starts getting a little crisp, pumpkins get picked, and the fun colors of orange and black start appearing here and there.  Such a whimsical time of year!

We redesigned the entire shop with all new displays and merchandise.  I'm including a ton of photos on this post so you can peek through at your leisure...........






































 


On Thursday, September 11, we had a fun event in Canal Winchester called The Moonlight Market where all of our shops were open from 5pm - 9pm for a Shop Hop.  We all had a photo booth for everyone to take fun photos.  Ours was a vintage projector screen painted with chalkboard paint and then we provided small chalkboards with sayings to hold up in front of it.  I couldn't resist testing it out with the "she loves vintage" chalkboard! 


It was a super fun night!

Thanks for coming by to visit, and I hope you are all having a great start to your Fall season!
