I have been working on setting up a "new" area on the second floor of the store - It is called "TATTERED PAGES" - New and Used Books & Magazines
We have been selling used/old magazines and books for quite awhile - Last year we sold new Fairy Books and Herbal Recipe Books and they really sold well. So NOW we have ordered more books and magazines...Somerset Studio and A Simple Life....both should be in the store soon. What I wanted to do was make a place where you could sit down and "browse" thru the mags or books to see if you wanted to purchase. This is what I have come up with so far....I know it needs "tweaking" - it might even spill over into the vintage shelf unit instead of the little stairway to nowhere. Depends on the customers reactions...hopefully they will take their cup of warm tea and sit a spell !!! It should be a nice place to relax.
The sun was shining BRIGHT and the pictures are not as good as they should be.....BUT there was no way I was turning off the sun today!
Tell me what you think...??? Would you like to sit here and browse??
The other side of this room I am making into a place where you can purchase vintage ribbon, lace, fabric and NEW ribbons, dyed burlap string, raffia and odds and ends to create with. You can purchase by the yard or spool.....scissors, yardstick are right there for you to "cut" yourself. This has been going over quite well so far ! I have so much "stuff" - and thought it was time to share it with everyone. Here is what it looks like right now...
