Well, I can't believe that I am blogging 2 days in a row! And...I am finding so many new (well- vintage) items that I didn't even remember having! So...I took more pictures of the store, and how it is evolving...
hope to see you all soon!
by the way, I am sharing the "new" stuff with Sellwood, too! Although now that I am spending so much time in the Fremont store, it is getting tough to want to share!

Wowza... who would have thought that we would have sold our house in 2 weeks, bought a new house, moved in 4 weeks, and, and, opened another store as well. Although I am ready to check in to the funny farm, there is something absolutely exciting about all of this chaos!!!
The wonderful thing about moving is that you find items and purchases that I had long ago forgot about...like the numerous creches that I put in the store. OR the estate sale purchases that just got shoved in to a closet in the 3200 square foot house, never to be seen again (until this last month!).
And, all of my vintage supplies for decoupaging and found object art have been thrown in boxes and moved to the new store. After all, I will be spending a gob of time there, and I figure that I can use the storage area for my baubles and my desk for creating...therefore creating a fun work space at the store. AND...I have so much more than I remember having, so a lot of my vintage bits and baubles will get bagged up for sale!!!
Of course, this is all a work in progress. After all, I am still trying to unpack the 40 or so boxes that I still have left to unpack. I am certain to find so many more treasures in them...and as I do I am certainly going to be filling up both stores with the many treasures that I am finding!!!
One of the pics that I am posting is of one of the basement rooms. Just full of boxes. And I am sure some of them are packed to the top with treasures!!! The other pictures are just some of the treasures that I found that I put in the Fremont store!
Since this house is only 12oo square feet with a big basement, we are purging so many things.
I should be able to fill the stores for a couple of months. at least!

Well, my first day is behind me and I feel like I can breathe! Although we still have so much stock to put out, I am happy with our first day. Lots of neighbors came in to buy and see the store...and it is so fun to meet new people. Of course, some of our great regulars came from Sellwood to see us too!
I thought I would add more photos of merch from the store...I took loads of pics for a change.
If you didn't stop by today, I hope that you will swing by soon! And we have so many more vintage items that we will be bringing in...
