I had an amazing weekend of deliveries! The wave lounge is happy in it’s new home and the gold velvet tufted set is also loved and moved in. I have the best clients! Love you guys!
So what is next? I know you guys want to know! First off I was so smitten by that Royale fabric, I just ordered 7 yards in blush. It will be used on those great little Billy Baldwin style x benches I have. I have one ripped apart and ready for upholstery and will get to work on the second. I have my pricing and these will be priced at $800 for the pair. Super labor intensive project but worth the save! I am thinking of adding a few buttons up top for interest. I am a few months out from getting these to upholstery but at any time, feel free to claim them! They will be perfect at the foot of a bed! Very sturdy and well made. They will be tailored and refined, much different than my typical mcm offerings.
I am also going to collect more of the Craft Associates/Adrian Pearsall pieces that I am buying. I still have the jacks coffee table available which is priced under others in my markets. There are replicas of this table out there so be careful. What sets mine apart is that the end piece is not square. That skew fits in the glass much better and adds more visual interest than the squared up version.
I have no reason to believe mine is not authentic as it comes from a home with many more authentic pieces. Speaking of that, I am ready to pick up more of these great pieces! The upholstered goods all need restoration. I will be taking them for quotes and yardage requirements as soon as I pick them up. Then I will come up with as is pricing. You will be able to purchase and arrange your own work. You also can purchase and I can use my negotiated rates with my upholsterer (at his cost) plus I can help you with fabric selection using my wholesale and trade accounts (you save even more!).
WANTED: SAVVY SHOPPERS WHO WANT VINTAGE FURNISHINGS CUSTOMIZED AND PERFECTED JUST FOR YOU!
This piece will be restored by me for me! Super excited to finish this for my own living room. I have been wanting the perfect couch to replace our 14 year old sectional which my husband loves too much! This 10’+ piece fits that bill! I even bought the fabric! What do you think?
I am staring an 8 week class this Thursday with Kutztown University’s Small Business division. Looking forward to seeing where I can take this business next. I love working with people across the country but I also know that my only way to grow and succeed is to break out with more services locally. I need to connect to local professionals who would use my services. I am not at the point where I feel I can support loans for capital and being a bookkeeper for much of my working life with other small business owners has taught me that life is very volatile and honestly, my personal funds cannot support my business so I will be treading lightly through this but excited to knock heads with other like minded entrepreneurs and see what opportunities are out there. I would love to eventually end up in a retail/work space but I am far from that and overhead is the kiss of death in small business. I will do my best to keep my response times quick during this but I will be busy! Our final project is pitching our business to a bank for a loan! My 13 year old told me she’d do my PowerPoint presentation. 😂😂😂😂😂
I have a few folks considering the orange convertible couch but no commitments yet. It is so cool that I would have kept it if my husband was not so comfy with our sectional. I am willing to drive pretty far to deliver so mid Atlantic peeps, take a look. I need a few days to get it cleaned for delivery but this weekend is wide open for me so reach out!
Have a great week! XO Malissa
