You have to start somewhere!

Our little shop has been open since September and slowly evolving.  We bought this tall hutch at an estate sale and it was just what we needed.  See the bench in the back?  My husband made that.  Most of the things shown sold (hooray!) and it's going into its next evolution.
So here is Early December at For the Birds.

This little spot has become a chatting and visiting area for old friends and new ones! 


  1. Oh how fun to have a shop, I just have a little booth, yours is darling! Everything is so well displayed. You asked about the metal frames, every time I find the gold ones I paint them white and they sell like hot cakes. I don't distress them. I have found if I paint any frame white they sell well. I sell a lot of white frames, no pictures, I guess people use them in decorating.


  2. Thanks so much, Carol! I find tons of frames and I like them white, too. I'm going to be reading a lot on your blog: I have a lot to learn!

  3. So pretty! It's place that seems comfortable to spend time in.

    I'm so proud of you.
