I forgot to check the batteries on my camera today - thank goodness my son was with helping me with his fancy phone/camera/computer thing (I have a hard time texting much less all this other stuff his phone does!!). He took photos for me - they are not camera quality - but bet you'll still find things you gotta have!!

It was awfully busy at the shop today - between wallpapering, painting, and setting up - it was the place to be today!! Thought I would share a few photos of what the shop looks like while all of this is going on - You will notice paint brushes and drills and tool boxes spread out all over - but hopefully you can see some great pieces in there too. I am already starting my gotta have list - and there is still TONS of stuff coming in! Yikes, I need a bigger house and another job (even at our great prices I just can't afford it all!!)
In between sales we work hard on finding merchandise and then doing everything that needs to be done to make it spectacular - which includes cleaning, repairing, re-gluing, upholstering, completely re-building, building new items, lots and lots of painting and sanding. But we also spend a lot of time re-doing the shop - lots of cleaning, painting walls, re-doing floors - and sometimes even a little more. Rose and Barb decided to do some wall papering today - can't wait to see this area when it is all done!! (Hey, don't tell them you saw this - I don't think they realized I was taking photos!!)

Absolutely everyone was in Buffalo this weekend! We had as much "sold" furniture sitting out side in front of our shop as we did inside. I am always amazed that as big as our sales are we make very few mistakes. Now we gear up for April which will be full blast Spring!!! Cement garden items, plants, out door table and chair sets and fresh spring colors. It is a short month. Just a few weeks before the April sale begins. I can't wait to see what new ideas pop into our dealers heads next month. I really do have the BEST group of dealers. They are all creative, talented and hard working people. thats it! i just had to comment on our sale. Come see us in April.
Another sale behind us - and it was a great sale! Thanks to all of you who came by and shopped your little hearts out! Thought I would share a photo of 3 of our cutest customers - ok, ok, not really - but we do get a lot of 4 legged visitors to SHR - and we love every one of them!!
